    I may not be visualizing this right but, the motor probably turns about 3450 RPM. This means the pulley makes a rotation nearly 60 times per second. The point being that the difference in speed...

    I am OK with the straight edge when we're looking at a tenth of an inch deviation. With a machine at this price point comes superior customer service and my first call (not email) would be to MM...

    When I ran a bagger I upgraded to an American Fabric Filter bag. Their site has a sizing tool and you will be amazed at how undersized most commercial filter bags are. A properly sized bag will do...

    I know. Funny, right? With all the livestock around I wasn't really surprised to get flies. I was surprised at how many of them prefer the shop to the great outdoors :D. Only a problem after I...

    Thanks all. The same idea could work vertically if that was a better foot print for you. The real win for me on the swinging feature is that I don't have to have a dedicated open area to remove...

    Plywood Corral

    I have been percolating on something like this ever since I saw one in an American Woodworker mag back in 2004. I've never had space for one. When I started thinking about my next shop I planned...

    I am sorry I did not read the whole thread and this may be covered. The tools I let go when I relocated for "Silly-Cone Valley" were replaced by tools a little farther up the tier ladder but lower...

    What a great industry term :). I too have done away with even the lever actuated drain stopper in the bathrooms. I used a screen drop in. Pretty much solves the goo problem. I bought a dozen on...

    I agree that at that price point buying a whole 'tool only' set may be your best bet. I would call Ridgid for parts (hopefully an assembly) pricing to be sure. I will say that if this is something...
