    1982 Martin T-23

    Thread Starter: Patrick Walsh

    And so it seems it begins again. The T-75 isn’t even technically done and I have a new project. I’m not gonna go all buggy on this one “just yet” if ever.

    which VFD (and what else?) needed for Delta DJ 20 jointer

    Thread Starter: Bob Riefer

    Hi! New-to-me Delta DJ 20 (37-350) 8" jointer is presently setup with a 3 phase motor, starter, and switch... which I can't power without some adjustments. It's a 1997 machine that is in great condition, and very flat tables (checked with precision straight edge and feeler gauges). Just need to...
