    First, whats your budget? Is your business stable enough that you are comfortable financing $25,000+? If your budget is only $5,000, then you can start to think about a used sliding table saw, and...

    Ooof, $4k for the fence PLUS the clamps. Your OMGA was an expensive saw before the upgrades, now its a down payment on a house for some folks.

    Do you find the automated fences are 'worth it' over...

    Short of his planer ripping apart the glue joint, i dont understand why you all think this will blow up in the planer? It is glued in place to the 4-5' long 'rails'. Yes, its a short piece of grain,...

    The center stile is in the same grain orientation as the rest of the apron, right? Hard to tell from the photo. I would expect no issues at all on this, UNLESS, the trailing end of that center style...

    Johnny, you are killing me. You post a few sideways photos of what is sure to be the best shop build thread of the last decade on this forum, and then you ghost us. Is it done? How awesome does it...

    It will probably show itself a little more when finish is applied, but in its unfinished state the patch is fantastic. Honestly, only the most discerning eye would pick up on that stuff to begin...

    Oh yeah, great price. Congrats. I watched that one for a week, and was curious, but i dont have any room to store a big saw right now. Also, i couldnt get it into my basement shop. My Felder KF700...

    I just started a thread on OWWM, because i had never heard of or seen a T78 before. I assume you were watching the IRS auction? It explains why that machine sold for very little, i had no idea it...

    I assume your T120 has a 1-1/4" spindle, or is it 30mm? I think there are two school's of thought on tooling. Buy as you need, or lurk around for used tooling at a screaming deal. I chose the latter...

    I have slatwall throughout my shop, and my shaper cutterheads, collars, spacers, and bushing all go on separate hooks clipped into the slatwall. Most of my steel body cutterheads are 5-8lbs, and its...

    His edge jointing issue might be specific to his machine. I cant recall ever coming across a Yorkcraft machine in my frequent used tool searches over the years. Jointer fences can be really hit or...

    Yeah, i never understood the "light passes=greater tool longevity" theory. You are cutting more material surface area. I try to take one 1/8" pass at the jointer to get my face flat/straight, but i...

    If you go VFDs, contact Automation Direct. They will set you up with the correct VFD for each of your motors. However, a VFD for a 7.5hp motor is probably pushing $600, and then the scoring motor...

    Looks like my earlier comparison to the brand i had was unfair. The user Aargghh goes out of his way to say how horrible the Plano Clamps(i remembered the name correctly!) are in comparison to the...

    I always glue my MDF/Ply panels. It shouldnt hurt anything and it prevents the panel from rattling as well as adding a ton of structure to the whole door. I like to get the fit very tight on length...

    Are you sure it isnt a poorly/incomplete stamp of the number "3"? You can do some backwards engineering if you have the KW/HP rating, full load amps, and voltage of the motor.

    Yep, definitely easier to replace the motor. I have seen guys run high voltage 3 phase motors off transformers, but only on saws that were direct drive. In that case, swapping in a different motor...

    If the load ever gets out of control, you can always drop it and stop things pretty quickly. This isnt really an option on very steep grades, and that is when you should employ a winch/come...

    That saw has been for sale for months, i feel. That group must have just upgraded equipment, because i remember they had a 20-25 year old Martin shaper, T43 planer, and 30+ year old martin jointer. I...

    Hey Jeff,

    That looks like a beaded faceframe with inset doors. Inset doors and drawers get a little finicky if you want a super tight reveal, but i agree, that style looks stellar when painted.
