    I think they say it is rainproof in about one hour or less. To me that means it will not wash off or rub off if touched.

    My similar looking saw I put a piece of plastic split wire loom over the blade slot on the left. This helps reduce dust thrown up into the air with or without dust collection.

    I have read that 3 seconds or more is the recommended stop time. Any faster and you risk unscrewing the arbor nut etc. Any thing like a lathe that has a lot of rotating mass needs even longer or...

    I have found that the LED's last forever but the power supplies fail quickly. So the 4' led replacement tubes only last a year or two then they no longer light up. best is to get separate power...

    I meant that a VFD for every machine will cost more in the end then one big rotary converter. But a vfd can offer features that a RPC can never offer. Such as soft start, dynamic braking, variable...

    Took me years to realize this but if the paint is hard to remove it is sticking to the substrate and should be left alone as a primer. Now if you want a dead level finish you have to remove the good...

    How many horsepower? Up to 3hp a vfd is the way to go. Full power to the motor and variable speed. You do not need reverse or dynamic braking for a belt sander.
