    Hmm....I should point out that wiring a compressor for 240 would be prohibitively expensive/difficult. Not impossible....all I got now is a 240 for floor tools (one at a time) and one for HVAC, and...

    4 stage or Air Compressor?

    I've been "doing well" with a pancake compressor and a HF HVLP gun, but recognizing the limitations as well as the short life of my compressor running 2 hour long spray jobs....(what it takes to...
  3. How to join dowels together 45 deg? Looking for something very specific

    After an entire morning of glue, clamps, and dowels flying around my shop (and a few pieces into the woods out of frustration), I've biting the bullet and asking the internet: how the heck do you...

    For those saying "Lumber prices are going down!", that has absolutely zero influence these days on construction costs. Labor costs have moved from "silly" to "unimaginable" territory. Insurance/bond...

    Laguna has been heard from. Apparantly incorrect assembly of the coupler/spider was a "thing" in the past, since rectified. I got one of the ones where it was slapped on....

    Great answers! Unfortunately, https://www.lovejoy-inc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/JawIn-Shear.pdf only shows smallest size as LS090, and what's on there now is LS070. Not sure what if any that...

    As a continuation of the Lovejoy Idea, I've (a minute ago) uncovered the specs for the coupling ( think):

    5/8 Bore (which I assume is the drum/motor shaft?)
    3.16 by 3/32 key
    L070 (?)
    44 in/lb...

    How similar is the Jet 16-32 to the Supermax 16-32? There's lots of Jet Spyders available, what are the chances the two models use the same spyder? A little desperate here, the spyder is beat up...

    Well.....the coupler "looks" to be a little "banged up". Given the gap between the coupler halves, from the factory, there's not much spyder left and the couplers are a little banged up.

    I'm a woodworker (hobbyist), not a machinist, so no way to accurately measure shaft diameters and coupling sizes or whatever else you would need to know to get the right part. All I know is the two...

    As best I can tell, on this model, I need to separate the sander head from the mount seems to be the "easiest" way to get the coupling off. Does that...
  14. How to replace Syder/Coupler on Supermax 16/32>?

    I have a Supermax 16/32 with a pretty clapped out rubber spyder-coupler. Little tiny pieces of rubber are coming out of it, which makes sense, I've used this like I stole it for the last 2 years. Any...
  15. Explain shooting board to me like I'm 5 years old!

    I'm recovering from a hernia op, which has me somewhat limited to what I can do in the shop, and to prevent further injury, DR (also a WW) has approved "plane tuning" as an activity. On my list of...

    Not that a lot of WW lumber gets bought at lowes, but I do occasionally get some plywood there, and lumber for jigs, shelves, and what is now my 5th workshop expansion. The 10% off has been...

    The customer is "me". If someone buys the house later and has a different idea, they can hire a cabinet maker. Cost and space are an issue. I need to pack as many serving trays, blenders, mixers, and...
