    Sicar makes good workmanlike machines. That sander sells used for $7-$10,000 in Europe.

    Indeed you can select reverse rotation on the VFD control panel, but the units I have used default to FWD when power is cycled. One less thing to forget.

    For three years now every time I use my...

    Ah good, then you should be set. Baldor has plenty of online info on connecting their 9 wire motors.

    You no doubt have read elsewhere that if you get reverse rotation just swap over any two wires...

    I agree. A standard VFD does not increase the voltage on any one leg, so use the low voltage connections.

    However, you should advise which VFD you are using as I am told that there is an...

    Yeah, that was a favourite ploy of my father. But there was plenty of stout black iron pipe back then, and good pry bars. He even had a pry bar with steel wheels and a long handle. It may have come...

    They do seem pretty artless compared to classic old wwm. I imagine it, the thicknesser and a green Altendorf panel saw might go for a combined 4K US. Plus fees. It’s tempting…

    By the way, can you find any third party identification on that panel Alan? I am positive that would be an off the shelf item from a vendor

    It absolutely pisses me off with Felder documentation. They know that outside of Europe woodworkers are not also trained in machine maintenance, and they know plenty of their machines go to...

    The long time owners on the Felder forum can often be quite helpful for this kind of thing, plus there are electronics experts and mechanical gurus there, and other D951 owners.

    Just out of curiosity did the new motor come with a mounting bracket or did you have to reuse the old one? If the former, maybe verify that they are identical. I have struggled with a similar...

    The four individual jacking screws likely have to be all set with the same load. That is all tight in the up direction. If you could find some way of doing that (vice grips?) you might be able to get...

    Yes, its a common problem. Eventually they turn into goo. There might be an updated compound on the replacement O rings

    These are from different AD941/951 manuals. Is your machine like either of these?

    I grew up with A-B controls on everything in my father’s plant. I can still smell hot bakelite. I might look for one to put on something just for nostalgia's sake.

    Good looking saw John

    I guess I was thinking about the size of my 2.2 kW unit which is pretty chunky. Even the original contactors were in a surface mounted box. That’s on a ‘78 Italian 24”.

    Those are really nice installations John. I especially like the Allen Bradley contactor box on the Unisaw. I wanted to do a similar installation on my bandsaw but chickened out on cutting a large...

    Or reinstall the motor/sprocket assembly the way you took it off…engage the chain first, then line up the bolts and don’t tighten any single bolt until they are all at least started.

    Well, if you can get both the SCM machines for US 36K that’s quite a bit cheaper than the Martins.

    I believe that Martin ships directly to NZ and the tech flies over for commissioning and...

    Just hop on a jet to BNE Albert. The Martin dealer is within 25 minutes of the airport. If it was me, I would be opting for Martin for both, but the money is probably $80K NZ for both.

    Depends. If it is an obvious manufacturing defect they may repair it free. When I sent my Kapex in for an electrical recall they upgraded my fence no charge.

    I didn’t adjust the wheel depth in the chassis since the blades tracked well in the centre of the (non crowned) tires. I tend to use my saw for one chore at a time…resawing typically, so I make the...
