    Well, it's nothing exciting, but it's a toss up between my Uni and my DC380 planer. I'm not really sure. I've only ever moved the Unisaw by means of dollies, levers, and the mobile base, and it no...

    I worked up an article about my replaceable insert throat plate which I described in Dennis' Weekend Accomplishments the other day. It's over at WoodCentral. More pictures. More words.

    Nice post, Mike. By the way, not only does the Uni come with a 6-15 plug, but my DJ-20 (jointer) and DC-380 (planer), both with 3HP motors, each came with a 6-15 plug. My shop is a complete NEMA 6-15...

    I believe the seller is blowing smoke saying that's a dual voltage motor. I don't think any Unisaw motor since perhaps the '70s, maybe earlier, has been dual voltage. At 3 HP that would be a 30 A...

    Well, that just goes to show what our faulty memories and faulty conclusions are worth. I was only off by two decades. Looks like the Exacti-Cut was invented a lot earlier than I remember, too.

    If I had to guess, I'd say it looks like something vintage 70s. I base that on a couple of things. One, the logo appears more like one used back in the day (even before the '70s). Two, the web cast...

    I was saying marginal tongue in cheek, that's why it was in italics. And actually, I was referring to a 30A circuit as marginal (italics again--same reason) for a 5 HP motor, which it probably isn't...

    The bigger the wheel the easier it is to roll over detritus on your floor. Clamp racks are not only heavy, but they tend to be top heavy, and you want the lowest rolling (and starting) resistance you...
