  1. I know of a 220/440 step up transformer for sale...

    I know of a 220/440 step up transformer for sale cheap, but it is 12KVA and I only need 2KVA, maybe 3KVA at the most. Would it still work ok or would there be huge losses or other problems?
  2. Can someone elaborate on the need for neutral...

    Can someone elaborate on the need for neutral with the 3 phase transformer? If you have a 120V circuit, the neutral and ground are separate and current flows through the neutral wire. They are only...
  3. Transformer to Run 440V Woodworking Machine Motors

    I have some small woodworking machines with 440V motors and have been looking for a used 3KVA 3 phase transformer to step up the output of my rotary phase converter to 440V, no luck so far. Used...
  4. Oscillating Motion Type on an Oscillating Spindle Sander

    I am making an Oscillating spindle sander. One of the main advantages of oscillating a spindle sander is to reduce sanding scratches. Most OSS's you buy use a constant velocity up and down motion,...
  5. Slot Mortiser Z Axis - 10 or 16 Threads Per Inch Better?

    I am designing a horizontal slot mortiser, which will actually be a router attachment for my clamping beam (H-beam). Would it be better to have 10 or 16 threads per inch on the threaded rod used for...
  6. In general, there is more bang for the buck in...

    In general, there is more bang for the buck in the duct size than in the motor. If you had a 40' run of 4" PVC, that would be a lot of restriction. If you go too large with the duct diameter, there...
  7. Fuji (Frenic) Mini VFD Cheatsheet for Review

    I am making a cheat sheet to set up a Fuji (Frenic) Mini VFD. Out of the many parameters, there are only a dozen or more that most people would have to mess with. I think my cheat sheet is pretty...
  8. Tops RAS

    Thanks for the info Bill. Great to finally hear from someone that actual owns one of these saws. Which model do you have? The Tops 555s saw I bought looked great, thought I would just do a little...
  9. Skil RAS or Tops, Marvco Versions...Opinions.

    I am restoring a Tops RAS (a later version of the Skil design). It would be great to hear some opinions about these saws from people that are familiar with them. I don't know if it will be any...

    Seems like most ideas on the Internet are using a router for a pin router or a dado cutter. I was thinking more along the lines of a slot mortiser or horizontal drill, but the long stroke isn't...
  11. Ideas for Repurposing Arm/Carriage from RAS?

    I have an arm with carriage from a scrapped RAS. Before I get rid of it, I am trying to think if I would ever have a use. The carriage runs smooth and without play, so would be a good set of ways...
  12. Nice rack. Does it have 2 or 4 swivel casters?

    Nice rack. Does it have 2 or 4 swivel casters?
  13. Base Size for Storage and Clamp Racks

    I have way too much stuff in my shop, but most of it is all on dollies, so at least it is easy to move out of the way. It has worked out very well in general, but I am trying to gain back even more...

    Easy Perfect Fit Router Lift Idea

    I used hot glue beads to make "shims" in my router lift cutout hole. The beads were put in, one at a time, after leveling the lift with 4 of the leveling screws. The beads were sticking to the...
  15. Easy Way to Route Opening for Router Lift

    This worked great and was so easy. I put thin masking tape around the outside of the lift because I would rather deal with an oversize opening rather than undersize. Worked fine, but probably...

    I would always go with a rotary phase converter (RPC) over VFD except for 2 cases.

    1. You only have one 3 phase motor to run and it is 3 hp or less.
    2. You want variable speed and can use a motor...

    Thanks Andrew. Not sure where the 38 degrees is measured from. The drawing in my 1944 144BD manual looks more like 43 degrees off of a radial line for the blade slot. This manual is about 8 years...

    Oliver 144 Jointer Knife Angle

    Wondering about the angles on my 1936 Oliver 144 jointer knives. I have an old 144BD owners manual from a few years later and no mention of knife angle. Measuring the best I could and looking at...

    I am thinking about custom-making something for the end, I can do metalworking. There is a problem with using the 7" Record vise I have now on the end. Its left slide bar is in the way of the dog...

    I really appreciate all the ideas given here, it has made me rethink my whole plan. At this point I am thinking of getting rid of the end vises which were dictating where I put the holes. Or at the...

    That's a good idea. It would have to be temporary with bolts because the bench is already 28" wide.
  22. A good friend of mine had a cabinet shop and...

    A good friend of mine had a cabinet shop and scrapped out his Wysong & Miles stroke sander. This is the table base from it. The benchtop can adjust from 30" to 40" high. The workbench weighs...
  23. I have never wished later that I had spent less...

    I have never wished later that I had spent less time making something higher quality. I wouldn't fret over these hole locations so much if it wasn't so permanent. I think I might just move both end...
  24. I thought about that, but maybe having the dogs...

    I thought about that, but maybe having the dogs farther apart would not be better . The goal was to get the front dogs closer to the edge.
  25. I really only planned on using the 7" wide end...

    I really only planned on using the 7" wide end vises on the right end of the bench for the dogs. They are almost flush with the top of the bench.
