    A three phase dust collector should be able to be used as an extra idler motor for a converter setup. I know a big disk sander works that way. I am unsure if the load on a dust collector allows it...

    X17 looks enough for you. I found Lowes 5 gallon paint buckets work better with an airless. Big cap unscrews big enough opening to use a small mixer paddle and to drop the intake hose in, no...

    Further reading of the manual says parameter #6 options are "stop by itself" or "deceleration". I assume "stop by itself" is coast down with no braking. That avoids having to worry about...

    I have learned that I was tightening pipe fittings too hard. For 3/4NPT and below a 18" wrench is plenty with maybe 30-40 pound of pull. I had been over tightening by almost one full turn. Hand...

    I bet the flexsteel guy would pay to come fix it on live tv with a can of hi spray rubber. Of course there is a slim chance it wouldn't work.

    I see used panel saws on C-list all the time for 500-1200. That seems like a decent price to consider compared to a dedicate track saw. How accurate are they?

    I was thinking wrong. there is no such thing as a slip fit bearing. It is the shaft undersize that makes it a slip fit. Did you write down the number before returning?
