    So it goes 80rpm slower than the PM2800? 250 is pretty slow, not sure I'll even need to go that low. Hate hearing about the damage, that sucks. And the poor casting that didn't line up. Haven't...

    John, actually that is what I'm basing mine off of. I was in a Woodcraft in late October and spent a good amount of time checking out their model. I knew I was going to buy one during the next sale....

    I'm guessing the noise from the variable speed is due to the unit having been dropped at some point. Mine runs very quiet. If mine had any issues I would've asked to return it for another one. Pain...

    Pay close attention to the instructions when assembling it. Other than the table and the head being heavy and a bear to handle by yourself assembly is pretty straight forward. Had mine together in...

    TheOKSpindoctor makes one that can go really deep. Seem to remember seeing where one went 33" deep. By far the beefiest one that I've seen on the market!

    Got my press in yesterday. I will say it is a Hoss to assemble by yourself. But got it assembled and everything seems just fine. Will check it out more thoroughly this weekend and see if my...

    I'm guessing they will pull it if asked.

    Well, you did specifically mention their product in a public forum. Asking for compensation seems kinda of childish.
    If you liked their product then what's the big deal.

    I ordered the PM2800B. I was really impressed with it at Woodcraft. 1hp, low end of 250rpm.
    $1189 with free shipping and zero tax was just too good to pass up. It's replacing an old 1950's...

    Fed-Ex Freight will. But I'm sure there are probably cheaper options.

    I was going to purchase this through Woodcraft as they do have free shipping on it(based on an ad I got on Facebook, but I think Woodcraft charges tax. Will have to look at CPO on Amazon. What type...

    I think your over thinking it a bit. You will want to use a dense wood anyway to offset the weight of the scoop. I typically use one of the Rosewoods. I did one once with spalted maple and the handle...

    I have mine set up like Daryl above. I have a disconnect for my 220 right by the door. Flip it whenever I exit the shop. Takes care of my bandsaw, lathe, and table saw.

    Did you try cutting in reverse? Hard to tell without a pic. I'm guessing it's more a problem of raised grain/fuzz instead of tool marks? Is the wood still semi-wet?

    A parellel face helps but isn't always needed. I turn a lot of blanks and just create the face I need on the lathe. Use a spur drive and start between centers and then adjust. A parellel face just...
