    Saddle square

    Thread Starter: Mark Rainey

    DC hose for Minimax FS41c?

    Thread Starter: Mike Dowell

    Oh my, this machine hasn't been here a week, and it's "loving me long time". I got all my DC fittings and was going to run a 6" drop to the machine, and pickup a 4" flex-hose to the ports. The problem? The ports aren't 4"!!! I'm sorry if I'm sort of "internet yelling". I am just at my ends...

    Miter Gauge Stops

    I used one of these. You can also make something similar out of a slotted strip of hardwood.

    Jet Bandsaw Table Flatness- Not

    I'm with Charlie and Lowell. Dad's saw table looks great with a straight edge on it but his miter gauge and sleds always gave a little snag at the slot.
