    Wright guides are my favorite, especially for large blades. Dave

    The Torit 20" cyclones made for 3-5 hp motors are very similar in design to Sternvent, Dustkopp, Air Sentry, etc. Cyclone design hasn't changed much over the years for commercial units, but they are...

    I can't see any size details but looks to be for fine dust. It was expensive originally with the involute inlet and the second cone on the bottom. Higher efficiency but also more pressure drop. ...

    I have a little Bosch saw but wouldn't want to rip much oak on it. Small table and light trunion. Do your dad a favor and find a decent used saw with a large table, good fence, and decent motor. ...

    I've seen Italian motors that state the hp at 50 hz even though the motor was converted to 60 hz and produces 20% more. 23 amps is strong for 8 hp so you have more than enough motor for resawing. ...

    Bring a good long straightedge or a decent extruded AL level, at least as long as both tables. Check that there are no hollows ( along length and width ) or table droop. If the tables are flat and...

    I've got about 10 table saws, most are sliders of different lengths. I love my sliders but there are certain rips that are just not as easy on a slider as on a short stroke or cabinet saw. I always...

    Northtech was ( is ? ) a private label imported from Taiwan. The machines were pretty generic, similar to SECO, Lobo, and some others. Dave

    I've run a 6" dado on my Bosch but benchtop saws are not made to handle the weight or stress of dado work. Once in a while is OK, but if you plan to dado often, look for a heavier saw that has the...

    Mike and Bruce, I understand that in theory there should be no difference between two motors of the same rating, new or old. In practice, my old large frame cast iron motors seem to outperform their...

    If the uni motor is original it will be a repulsion induction motor. I've never used one but they tended to be large with lots of copper and ran cool, had lots of torque for their size, and low...

    Mac, runs some discounts so it is worth talking to him. He is a one man operation so you contact him directly. Mine were more like 2000-2200. Dave

    Commercial cyclones are much higher in cost. An involute inlet adds cost, as does a helical baffle and a ramped inlet. The CV design is somewhat more complicated and I recall they worked on a metal...

    The first thing I would verify is that the fence tightens exactly parallel to the blade and does it repeatedly. A poorly designed or adjusted fence is worse than no splitter or riving knife in my...

    I'd suck it up and go with Mac's. They are Martin like in quality and there is nothing like them on the market. Even Martin's pneumatic clamps are second to Mac's. The cost will hurt but you will...

    The heights just need to maintain the tail and pin increment.

    On the manual machine, the height increments depend on the dovetail used. Because you are referencing all four sides at once, two each on top and bottom, you need to maintain the increments if you...

    Those machines use a single flute bit. After you do a couple of drawers you learn how to enter and exit the cut to avoid tear out. I assume the CNC is programmed to do the same but not hard to...
