    I still have a laptop with 7 on it. It was a company laptop (large blue tech company) so it can't be upgraded without paying. I like 7. I leave that one at work now and had one with 10 on it. You...

    A quick check on Powermatic's website for service centers list several in the Tampa area who do in house and field repairs. I suspect if you called them they would come out and work on Grizzly...

    It was a real guess at RPM. The link you posted to the Chinese one on Amazon was a 6 to 1 ratio. I made this one 4 to 1. The stepper can go so slow it almost looks like it's stopped with the...

    It's nice to know that it comes off the spoilboard easily. The machine I was using had a 20hp vacuum pump, not something most people would have the ability to supply power to. But it's sized that...

    I can't watch the video on this laptop but it looks like you just put glue on the edges in a couple of spots. Did you just glue it directly to your spoilboard? If so is the glue easy to remove or...

    The main reason for using a stepper is so I can control it and possibly make rope patterns and increment the project by a set number of degrees. For example, if I wanted to add fluting to the...

    So it's been a bit of learning but this is where I ended up. The first is after it finished but before I sanded it. I probably spent 5 to 10 minutes smoothing it out with a RO sander. The second is...

    It's a 4 to 1 ratio but I'm using a rather small timing belt. Not sure if it'll handle the forces. But it was in my junk drawer so I used it. I know the one John asked about in a different thread...

    Inspired by John

    Well sort of. It was something I was planning and I did buy a few parts to make it happen. But when John posted his tapered leg idea that motivated me to get-r-done.
