    Thanks Rod. This would be something to keep in mind for frequent start relatively high load applications - like a dust collector. Then I think about single phase table saws. They sometimes get...

    This made me wonder about something. Would a 3 phase motor on a VFD with, say an 7 - 10 second ramp up time generate less total internal heat than an 'instant on' motor? It would be generating heat...

    I have some belts for the little P-C belt sander. I've had those for certainly longer than 5 years and recently used the machine. The belt held up. They're stored in a basement in a case to fairly...

    I could maybe see some advantage to 3 phase on a dust collector. As Kevin said 3 phase motors don't have the failure points of single phase. I'd suspect dust collectors get started more times in a...

    I have a 3 hp G1023 table saw and Jet JJP-12 3 hp J/P along with a "2 hp" dust collector on a 30 amp 240 volt circuit. I've never tried all 3 at the same time, I'm a one man operation. Either Saw +...

    You could try Super Cut. I have a couple of their Premium Gold blades which seem to have good blade life. Don't confuse their 'carbide' claims with Lennox Trimaster and the like. The Super Cut blades...

    There at least used to be two styles of threaded inserts. One had two slots in the top and used a large straight screw driver. Another had a hex socket formed into it that accepted an allen wrench....

    I recall reading that Steel City machines were not necessarily Chi-wanese standard. I would not be confident in a Grizzly or Jet table saw top fitting a Steel City machine. I suppose if you were able...

    Kinda OT since Keith has his problem solved but if anyone has access to old 3.5" PC hard drives -- the older the better -- disassemble them and harvest the magnets, usually kidney shaped and on the...

    Thistothat.com recommends LePage's Metal Epoxy, J-B Weld or Fasteel Epoxy Putty. This doesn't seem like a situation where bond failure is going to be either a risk of injury or expensive material...

    A bit but not too much with distros designed to be 'easy'. Linux Mint and Zorin are pretty easy. I don't know how practical it would be for Kev to use virtual machines. Create the VM, install...

    I have a stand alone Garmin GPS as well as Google maps on my phone. The Garmin maps sometimes don't show roads where there clearly is one - I'm driving on it. The other thing about Garmin is they...

    This sounds like something that a trade association might get involved in. The root problem seems to be that the definition of "Occasional".

    The 'red stripe' CleanStream filter will also fit older R2D2 Fein vacs. There's not a hole in the filter but it doesn't need it. It fits snug enough that it's unlikely to come off.

    Is that the saw that Laguna sold as their SUV? Those got pretty good reviews. One concern I would have is if you wanted to run carbide blades. Most carbide blades are .032" thick and may fatigue and...

    You could run Edge on Linux, at least the Debian based distros. Why you'd want to is another matter.
