    Scott,

    It appears the WayBackMachine (part of the Internet Archive ) has some captures. Some recent captures are giving me errors, but here is one for each that worked for me:

    If at all possible plumbing/ connection wise, it would be much better to run a tube from the pump's exhaust port to outside your shop than to extend the upstream volume/ distance. The only negative...

    So, hand planing UHMW PE worked, but was a bit tricky. I had to take almost 0.020" shavings to reliably get a "bite" on the material. Clamped the material from the back so it was in tension, and it...

    I'm really surprised one can effectively sand UHMW PE, I rather assumed it would clog up the abrasive in very short order.



    Going to give this a try on my planer sled if the prototype works as...

    Wow, thanks everyone! Sorry for my delay in getting back, back-to-school night wore me out.

    Consensus appears to be that smaller pieces can be a bit finicky, particularly without preparation. ...
  6. Anyone plane UHMW polyethylene? Gotchas to watch for before I start?

    I'm making runners/ spacers for window sashes. I'm using 3/4" x 3/8" miter slot stock which is the closest I can get from McMaster-Carr, but it's just a touch too think...I'd like to plane it down...

    My current "setup" leaves a pile along the length of the motor cover/ door side, as well as in each of the two other (far, in your photo) corners. I was going to caulk the edges of the black...

    Alright, so it turns out that part #26, even though _not_ listed as such, is an eccentric sleeve/ bushing for the lift worm gear and shaft.

    Before (at the point of least possible engagement, it...

    Jim,



    heard about this in a video on-line last week, definitely on my list



    Doesn't this result in more dust on/above the table in the air with no downward suction around the blade... or...

    Jim,

    What's your dust collection/ usage like on this saw? ...the elevation pin cavity seems the worst of any, and it's barely coated! I had all that buildup you see above, even with a Grizzly...

    Good eye, thank you. I'm hoping part #36 is also an eccentric, as it (the lift worm gear) is much less engaged than the tilt worm gear. They are both getting some attention.

    Excellent point, Frank, and one we probably gloss over in our field...except or maybe the guys and gals working in pro shops where tune ups an annual affair. I'm just hoping to do better than this,...

    Thanks, Glenn, I'll take a closer look...it appears the part on mine where this could apply is the "elevation sleeve" which houses the "elevating shaft assembly" (the worm gear).

  15. Craftsman Hybrid Table Saw (351.221160) Tune up Questions (w/ pics)

    So I have finally gotten around to a real "deep clean" and tune up of my granite-topped craftsman table saw. A few questions have arisen, though:


    1) The saw uses mostly black-oxide coated steel...

  19. Sure, but a very small part in both volume/...

    Sure, but a very small part in both volume/ weight or product cost. Pick your highest Aluminum content (china COO) machine and do a parts-cost breakdown and tell us what you arrive at. I think it...

    Why are we bringing Aluminum into this, it's a separate tariff/ issue. OP posted about the tariff on industrial type machinery being implemented...mostly iron and steel made. Although it seems part...

    Aluminum is not a mineral, as it does not occur naturally. Bauxite, the ore from which Al is most commonly (by far) extracted, is a mineral.

    Tariffs are fundamentally a politically implemented...
