    Here is a short slider set up for ripping. While not as handy as a 10' machine, for the space needed, it is pretty efficient.412878412879412880412881 Tonight I was cutting for trim stock. The...

    I have a bunch of sliding saws and like either 10' or longer, or 39-49" short stroke. Have you seen the MM SC2 on Woodweb in Wis? Still in crate. Dave

    Builders like the extensions attached by the factory. I made sure they were flush or a little under and had the builder shim the outside, under the flange and then rabbit the cedar trim. On...

    Input wire size to the RPC depends on if you are running L1 and L2 from the converter directly to the output circuits or machines rather than feeding the machines from the service and only using the...

    Motors are an area where companies can save money and consumers have no way to evaluate their quality. Old large frame cast iron motors were less efficient and probably had poorer insulation but...

    As stated, first look at the frame numbers, probably Metric IEC. Then check sources to find out if a larger hp motor can be had with the same frame. Machines have lots of wire packed into small...

    It takes a lot of use to wear the bearings on the slider. I'm more concerned with the thickness of the extrusions and the build of the cabinet that supports the cast iron and the sliding table. ...

    Do both have scoring? Scoring blades that run off the main blade are less than ideal but scoring with a separate motor is nice to have. Older isn't necessarily a negative. Condition is key but...

    On most gates you can just change the screw so it pushes the steel towards the airflow. No need to switch the actual unit. On larger systems with larger mains the leakage is actually a good thing...

    I'm assuming you don't want the look of a center stile even though it would add a lot of strength to the door? Is the top rail beefy enough to handle the weight or the door and the mdf? Most of the...

    i bought one from Sears a million years ago and still have it. I think I tried it on a handrail but haven't used it since. I don't think it is orbital. Now I would use a ROS with a pad, I have 3"...

    The beauty of a 36" saw is you can tension so you don't really need guides for wide blades. I take mine off when I need the extra resaw height. If you are patient, you can find those large size...

    The Torit 20" cyclones made for 3-5 hp motors are very similar in design to Sternvent, Dustkopp, Air Sentry, etc. Cyclone design hasn't changed much over the years for commercial units, but they are...

    I can't see any size details but looks to be for fine dust. It was expensive originally with the involute inlet and the second cone on the bottom. Higher efficiency but also more pressure drop. ...

    I have a little Bosch saw but wouldn't want to rip much oak on it. Small table and light trunion. Do your dad a favor and find a decent used saw with a large table, good fence, and decent motor. ...

    I've seen Italian motors that state the hp at 50 hz even though the motor was converted to 60 hz and produces 20% more. 23 amps is strong for 8 hp so you have more than enough motor for resawing. ...

    I've got about 10 table saws, most are sliders of different lengths. I love my sliders but there are certain rips that are just not as easy on a slider as on a short stroke or cabinet saw. I always...

    I've run a 6" dado on my Bosch but benchtop saws are not made to handle the weight or stress of dado work. Once in a while is OK, but if you plan to dado often, look for a heavier saw that has the...

    If the uni motor is original it will be a repulsion induction motor. I've never used one but they tended to be large with lots of copper and ran cool, had lots of torque for their size, and low...
