    I'm just a hobby guy but turn it on and leave it until I quit. Mainly because I'll forget and it could stay on for weeks in the storage building. Dave

    It is worthwhile to take a look at the impeller. If the blades are straight, the impeller will pull less cfm at low pressure but outperform a curved blade fan at higher pressure. The straight blade...

    Adding a cushion to the sandpaper, head, or table doesn't improve the machine. A drum sander is a calibrating type machine. Won't take off more than a few thou but will leave a surface very...

    The rip fence on a long slider still serves a purpose, that is why it is still there and why it slides. Slide it forward and it serves as a stop ( and gives you enough reference ) and you rip just...

    Keep in mind you are looking at different frame sizes so the mounting will be different, the shaft diameter and pulleys are different, and the belt will need to be changed. The starter or switch may...

    Look at larger hp units with larger diameter impellers. A cyclone is a pre separator and while the separation helps the filters, it comes at the cost of reducing cfm at the port. 1.5 hp will not...

    Dave at Oella might have some resharpened used cutters. I've had luck with him. Tenon tooling is often not used much and shows up on ebay , CL, and facebook if you can access them. Dave
