    I have used old tooth brushes in the past but found that mounting them in a way they don't move to be a little difficult. I like that PVC idea. I should be possible to mount the brushes too the...

    For a short period of time I had a Harbor Freight 14" bandsaw. The port on it was worthless. What I did was similar to what you are talking about. I just put a spare flexible hose from a shop vac...

    I wouldn't hesitate to remove the top. If you can do it with just the wings removed then clearly that's the way to go. Removing the top will mean setting the miter slot back up to the blade. This...

    My 514 came with bad urethane wheels. I replaced them with a different brand but I'm positive grizzly would have sent replacements. It happens. When paying top dollar I expect perfect out of the...

    I have yet to see any of the Asian make Laguna or Rikon band saws to be any better than those made (probably in the same factory) as Grizzly. What I have seen is that of the 3 Grizzly seams to be...

    If it makes you feel any better I started off at about the same place as you. I ended up well above my initial budget after getting the G0514X2. It's easy to do and as you go up in price you have...

    I'm lucky enough to have access to a shop with almost everything a woodworker could dream of (no CNC yet). The only time I've used a power feeder on a table saw was after jointing and planing...

    I use them all the time on my Vicmarc chuck. I use them to hold the rim of a bowl or box so I can finish off the bottom. A vac chuck would probably work too but since I just trued up the rim of the...

    When I was a kid we would play in the wood chip pile at a local mill. They separated the dust (which went into a trailer) while the chips went to a huge pile behind the building. When they were...

    If they were made wrong then it wasn't Taylor's fault but as the seller they are responsible to make it right. A restocking fee is only for someone who buys something and then changes their mind. ...

    Seams like there's more than one topic being discussed here. They are similar but not quite the same. A straight edge for woodworking can have many functions with each requiring a different level...

    At my last house the garage was detached and the power was ran underground to it. The wire was a 120v 12/2 direct burial that was under the cement sidewalk between the house and came up through the...

    First off the G0771 does have a riving knife. I've posted a picture from Grizzly's site below. If 240v is out of the question for now then it's best to move on from that option. The biggest issue...

    I can't say all Grizzly urethane tires are bad but the ones that came on my 19" (G0514X2) Grizzly were. I could have gone down the road of having Grizzly send me a replacement set and hope they were...

    One think to keep in mind is that you will want a 2hp 120v saw on a dedicated circuit. At a previous house the garage only had 1 30amp 120v line going to it. I had several pieces of equipment that...

    Just for fun I thought I would try to sharpen the blade that came with my bandsaw (not a quality blade at all) and after about 20 teeth I gave up. I'm usually cheap but the monotony would of drove...

    At least it's not just me. Now I need to find a project so I can justify buying some cutters for it to try out.
  20. Have you ever bought a piece of equipment and then wondered why?

    I came across a great deal on a 3hp 3/4" shaper. It's an older one made in Canada with an American made single phase US motor on it. It's in very good shape and I probably have $100 into it. I was...

    There are plenty of schools that hold classes, usually a week long. If you can do cabinetry you can do a timber frame. There's a few tricks and you need to understand the physics involved. But over...

    I would be thankful that a miter gauge didn't come with the saw. That saw is a budget saw (nothing wrong with that) so anything extra would raise the price up. That means Rikon would most likely...

    I think what you've done is upgrade the saw to parts that can be bought if they ever need replacing. To me that a bonus if I was buying the saw.

    You missed my point. Rarely do you work with a board exactly 1 meter or 1 foot. With the imperial system you break the number up. For example you don't say a board is 1 meter, 3 decimeters, 2...
