    I'd look to a 12L14 steel (McMaster Carr) for that acme thread. It's alloyed with lead to make it easy machining which I think you'll find is better especially on a small lathe. But I don't think...

    Air drier

    I dunno if this is correct spot for this but I’ll give it a go.
    Is an air drier beneficial when spraying water base finishes? I’m not opposed to spending a few dollars to buy a decent refrigerated...

    I'd buy that but I don't think shipping to South Dakota would work out very well. In cost and hassle.

    One thing I don't think folks realize is that the outfeed table on a slider "slides" out of the way when you need the space, unlike the a fixed outfield table on a normal cabinet saw. You must still...

    My woodmaster drum sander just uses a dc motor for the feed and a simple reversing switch. No three phase on it.

    I think it's so all ther motors that might get plugged onto the same outlet run the same direction. '

    I have a few 3 phase machines. A rotary phase converter and a VFD. I like the 3 phase options and it works well for me. But, I think resale on single phase machines is probably higher if you ever...

    I paid $4.5 per square foot. They ground the floor first then put down one or two (I can't remember) coats of color, then 100% chip coverage and finally a top sealer coat. When they put the chips...

    I have a polyaspartec floor in my new shop. It’s great. I don’t know if it’s really any different than an epoxy floor but I think it’s less of a health risk for the installers. It’s pretty impervious...

    Mike, where did you find the CBN disks? I looked a bit but only found them in one place at $59

    We’ll that is significantly cheaper. Maybe I’ll take a run at Siko and see if they can give me a better price. If not I’ll likely go with the Proscale too.

    Im just thinking about the fences and their flip stops for now. I have bolted my Incra positioner to the outrigger table in the past. Itís ok but I would still like something a bit better in the...

    So how did this all work out you might ask.

    Just excellent. I built a plenum withe cheapo furnace filters to catch most of the overspray before it gets to the fan. There is plenty of airflow but...

    Lambtoolworks got back to me. They don't offer a system for the MM slider. I called Siko, they are very helpful and have done this application quite a bit. I'm getting some prices and technical...

    Yeah I saw Sam’s mods. I was hoping to just buy a solution but it’s definitely an option. And likely a bunch cheaper.

    I saw that. But it says the parallel fence fits both Felder and MM. So maybe there is a chance it can work on a MM.
  22. MiniMax digital crosscut fence Lambtoolworks?

    Does anyone know if the Lambtoolworks digital flip stops work on a MiniMax saw? I have a request into the Lambtoolworks site but I thought someone here might know or know of a retrofit.

    Not to speak of closets but I find it pretty funny that most of the pics of peoples dust collectors and piping show that the outside of the dust collector systems are covered in dust.
