    If you have the brake toggle switch set at short deceleration, with a very heavy blank, it will trip the VFD. If you change it to long deceleration, no problem. That's the way mine works, but it is a...

    Does it actually say made in USA? I thought they only sold cheap import machines. The kind of stuff sold in Popular Mechanics in the day.

    I have zero love for Delta. A shell of the company it used to be, and a mess for ever getting any parts.

    I'd build a thicknessing system like folks do on big natural edge slabs, and use a router to take off the 1mm. .04" is a lot to even begin to take off evenly over an entire board with a random orbit.

    The answer seems obvious. If you took up blacksmithing, make a draw knife.

    Look at the rpm of the pneumatic tools. Sand paper can be overheated very quickly, as can velcro interface pads. Effective sanding on the lathe is best done with slow lathe and sander rpm. In my...

    I assume you've seen the quote, "Life is too short to turn crappy wood." Is wood in short supply around you? Around here, I have about 2 lifetimes of wood stored away. Ash trees are being taken down...

    Misalignment is never normal. Belt stretch after a few years and never running is. Be extremely careful with those reeves drive pulleys. They are as brittle as glass. Don't pry them off the shaft or...

    Helping a stranger with a commission bid is fraught with danger and misunderstandings. I don't know what speed you work, what tools you have, what your raw material costs are, what labor rate you...

    It's an incredibly antiquated system with that yahoo group. Not much activity. I post once and a while, but always wonder if my post will show up. Suddenly it does. Try posting and see what happens.

    There is no better machine mover than a roll-back wrecker. Costs me a $100 bill (those guys love cash for some reason LOL) each time, but the machine comes off the flatbed right onto the shop floor....

    Powered walkie stackers I used in my day job had almost zero hill climbing ability. They are incredibly expensive, and the ones that lift 3,000 pounds are incredibly heavy and long! It will take up...

    Vacuum kilns work well because under a hard vacuum you can get water to boil around 90 degrees F. You get very little degrade with a vacuum kiln. The issue is keeping the inside of the kiln 90...

    Take a piece of scrap and try to bend it. Polycarbonate is very soft and you can actually bend it in a sheet metal brake to 90 degrees. Acrylic will shatter as soon as you try the slightest bend....

    I'd suggest some extreme caution here Bill. You are getting a ton of advice from people who have no idea what this machine is and the electrical components in the machine. If I found the correct...

    Start out by making sure everything in the edgebander is 3 phase. The heater may not be. Not 100% certain, but I don't think you can run a resistance heater on 3 phase.

    Who hired the installers, you or the flooring company. If the flooring company did, that's where the phone calls have to start.

    Die grinders are usually too high of speed for effective sanding. I'd suggest the Metabo SXE400 3 1/8" random orbit sander with different densities of interface pads.

    The biggest issue with powder post beetle infestation is the elimination of all three stages of the life cycle. You have to even kill eggs laid in the wood. Fumigation is not good for that. ...

    Way to thick of wall for a hollow form with the pith in it. You should be down to around 1/4" max. 1/8" is even better. Even there, some would drill out the pitch with a 1/4" bit and then plug it...
