    I would second the back to back option. I don't have it in my shop, but I have a friend who uses this approach and it has worked out well for him.

    I do the same thing as Lee, but substitute a 3M red scotch pad for the steel wool.

    I've got a 40 year old Craftsman steel 24" square that is very accurate as well. I think they made them better in the "old days".

    My newer Grizzly has this feature, but not my 35 year old Craftsman table saw. I don't if it is a particular switch that Grizzly uses, or actually a magnetic starter. I just looked it up and they...

    ATC Spindle Recommendations

    I am considering upgrading my 2.2 kw air cooled spindle to one of the ATC spindles - either Chinese or US made. I would like some feedback from anyone experienced with these, especially Gary...

    Hi Bobby,
    Yes - I would like to see pictures of your setup. I have sent you a PM with my email address.
    Thanks,
    David
  9. Hi Bobby, That's all I really want right now is...

    Hi Bobby,
    That's all I really want right now is "semi-automatic" so I don't have to use wrenches to remove collets for tool changes and then rezero the Z for each different tool. I could just zero...

    I think that perhaps rack & pinion drive may be preferable to those long lead screws.

    Hi Bobby,
    I was interested to see the machine you were referring to. If it is actually 3000 lb, then that must be a real beast!

    About 6 weeks ago, with reference to the ATC Spindle kit, you...

    One of the other members recently posted that he had paid less than 8K for a new Chinese 4 x 8 cnc router (with 4th rotary axis) that weighs around 3000 lb. I would be interested to find out more...

    Gary,
    I expect this is probably build #1 for the seller. Perhaps he will incorporate some of the improvements you have suggested into his next build. If Ronald pursues this, perhaps the issues that...

    Will he include the tool setter?

    Hi Ronald,
    Can he get it out of the basement without any disassembly?

    The seller says it is fully operational and available for inspection/testing. He probably had fun building it and doing a few signs and engravings, but now is ready to move on. I don't see any other...

    Hi Ronald,
    This looks like a nice setup! I think his asking price is probably less than the materials/parts/software cost (and not counting the labor to build it). By comparison, a similar machine...

    I'm still waiting to see the pictures. Sounds beefy. Could be good for light machining of non-ferrous metals, even with the odd table size.

    Hi Ronald,
    Could you post some pictures please?
    Thanks,

    Hi Brian,
    I have the Grizzly G1023RLWX and I think it is great! I'm very pleased with the fit, finish, and operation of this saw. I'm located in Tucson, Arizona - way out of your area. Let me know...

    Nice job Stan! About how long did it take you to digitize the entire image?
    Thanks,

    Hi Chris,
    I couldn't find the article you are referring to, but here are several videos on the subject that you may find useful.

    Hi Jim,
    My personal opinion is that the Sawstop is a $2000 table saw with $1000 of "safety" electronics added to it. I have seen many discussions about the Sawstop here at SMC as well as other...
