    What 8" jointer would you get and why?

    Thread Starter: Alden Peterson

    I think I'm finally going to pull the trigger on an 8" jointer. I don't have one right now and I'm tired of having to planer sled/table saw sled for jointing and not getting perfect cuts on those anyways. Prices are all over the place between brands. I'm wanting helical and probably...

    Using a ground as a neutral

    Thread Starter: Wade Lippman

    The VFD on my 120v Jet 1642 lathe burnt up and I would like to replace it with a 240v VFD. (they are smaller, cheaper, and more dependable than 120v) The only problem is that the tach requires 120v. I can put it on a separate 120v circuit, but that seems so inelegant.
