    Mark

    My Rolair JC 10 has the drain at about the 5:00 position. That compressor I do depressurize when I'm done with it, and then tilt it to get any accumulated moisture out of it. I rarely use...

    Mark
    If you're going to use an auto drain, don't set it up to open after every cycle. The moisture in the tank needs to condense first and then gravity will cause it to collect in the low spot....

    Matthew
    The key is stabilizing the material through the jointer. You need to cobble together some additional infeed and out feed supports to take the weight of the material out of your hands.

    John
    This is definitely different than on a well system.
    There must have been some other changes to the codes, as the isolation valve for the cold water supply "used" to have be installed at the...

    I modified the snow blower by closing the gap between the impeller, and housing, with rubber gasket material. I've never had the chute clog, it's always been the impeller housing that was the cause.

    Bill

    I think you'll be fine now.

    Bill

    Jay

    I'm going to take the opposite approach.
    You're a mechanic, correct? There is nothing exotic about the hydraulics on that Deere, and virtually every part you need is still available though...

    Ryan

    I have the Festool TS-75. I also have 12-15, 2" thick walnut slabs, so I kind of know where you're at.

    Dueane
    I've never found that setting the speed to fast helped with my drum sanders.
    My 3HP, 27" dual drum sander takes very light passes,and the speed is definitely not "fast".

    We use the MAC700's at work, and believe me, they're robust little buggers. We'll have 10-12 of them paralleled for work inside the...

    I've had the same Porter Cables for close to 20 years now. The compressor they came with was the worst, loudest, most obnoxous piece of junk, ever produced. I couldn't wait for it to blow it's guts,...

    My Rolair, JC-10 has held up well. I don't use it a lot, but it works when I need it. It is pretty quiet.
    It's good for finish nailers and staplers, but it doesn't run a framing nailer without...

    A trick I saw many years ago was to place a dowel between the pipe clamp and the edge of the material. This way the pressure was applied...

    Wow!
    I think we've strayed a bit far, and it's getting a little "snipey".
    Shapers have had router bit adapters for at least 50 years. (My machine is from the 60- 70's.) So router bits do work,...
