    That's probably what I would do, I doubt that saw would be moved like a job site saw where it might need different length cords. The fewer connectors the better IME.

    Aerospace usually rewards lightness and corrosion resistance, woodworking machinery often rewards mass for its vibration damping properties. Mass market woodworking machines don't have a lot of...

    My Jet JJP-12 has a pretty sloppy roller chain as well. I don't see a way to tighten it and it doesn't make any noise - runs pretty slow so I've let well enough alone.

    I don't have an answer to the oversized arbor except to replace it. I added a router table extension to the right side of my Griz 1023. I put the vertical part of an L shaped wooden piece against...

    One other thought about European motors - what's the frequency? I recall discussions about European induction motors running at 50 Hz. I don't know if that matters to the machines in question or not...

    I've spent the better part of 3 weeks in Miami - not the touristy parts. Spanish seems the defacto language among the working class there. Most understand enough english to be able to communicate but...

    I would do some reading before buying one of the 'short cone' units. Conventional wisdom says a longer cone has considerably more efficient separation than short cone units. I guess though if you...

    It sure seems to in my experience. A lot of people use a "top hat" design with the Thien baffle. I didn't want the extra can and associated (performance robbing) hose.

    If you're considering the Jet Vortex, I'd recommend a look at the Thien baffle. I built one and it helps a LOT keeping chips out of filters. Some fine dust like from a sander will still get by but I...

    For age 50+ men - me at least - less caffeine = less trips to the bathroom. Decaf coffee doesn't have the same effect so caffeine seems like the culprit.

    4 stars with 490 reviews isn't too bad. A question I would have (didn't read the Q/A) is 4.5 CFM at what pressure? I have a couple Neiko hand tools and they seem like good bang for the buck.

    I don't recall ever having seen just the blade, always the assembly. SWMBO bought RainX branded 'premium' wipers. We'll see how they last.
