    The edge of an extrusion mounted to the side of an extrusion forms a t shape. The t-shape helps to reduce inconsistencies from one to the next.

    I suspect that aluminum extrusions will be flatter...

    I agree with Micheal, Use a Rotary, not sure how a VFD is going to deal with the machine’s on/off cycles.

    Once you start buying chisels, you’ll forget all about how much the rotary costs :D

    If you combine heavy section aluminum extrusions to form a T-shape, they will be pretty flat. A layer of that joined together to a base would be nice, heavy and pretty damned flat.

    I joined these...

    I like to order stuff such as this through McMaster Carr. For mine I spec’d the highest quality rating which McMaster supplier SKF Explorer. They are slightly more expensive but run very quietly.

    It comes with a nice mounting block which I had to remove for this. I’ll probably move the pivot point closer to the infeed side by about 1-2” to get a better position.

    At long last:

    458807458807

    This guard is fantastic, it’s driven by a gas spring and actually holds tight to the fence.

    David Weaver developed it so I trust it’s an excellent method but I haven’t tried it. David’s approaches are thoroughly researched and more importantly they are thoroughly tested.

    The smaller belt does not fit on this machine, so anyone following along don’t bother doing that.

    I decided just to tension the motor like I normally do with a couple blocks and a lever. Nice and...

    Mark,

    Yes, that is a good description. I might spin the upper wheel and see what it sounds like also.

    Tom, thanks for the update. The wheels are now co-planar on mine and this saw sounds a lot happier. I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that getting the wheels co-planar had some merit. ...

    Ok, perhaps I will remove the isolation ideas but I can’t imagine 1/8” of 80 durometer adding any yaw issues.

    Hi Prashun, this is not a new practice for me but something limited to western tools for my shop. I can, but do not often do this for Japanese tools which usually get the full run of stones.

    Abrasive paper is extremely expensive over time. I never recommend that approach to students. Oil or water stones and your bench grinder with a CBN wheel.

    Not yet, it supposed to take a while. It took me four weeks to get a set of wrenches from Germany that were in stock so I guess it just takes a while when ordering from Germany at the moment.
