    452181I have a mid-80s era Model 26 with the narrow belt, a 1 inch solid spindle and what I assume are the original pulleys. Happy to take more pics of what mine looks like and/or try to measure, if...

    I switched my PM 100 planer to Self-Set Dispozablade/ESTA knives a couple years ago and really like them a lot. It takes 15 minutes or less to swap out a new set or edge and the accuracy is as...

    I have my K3 hooked up to a dirt-simple 1 HP single stage unit that dates back to the era when replacing the cheesy factory bag with a felt one was deemed quite the upgrade. Even connected with six...

    If you do use melamine, an easy way to solve the chip out and nasty, sharp edge issues is to rout a 45 degree chamfer on all exposed edges. It actually makes for a very nice tactile surface.447169

    Nothing to add here, except it is incredible to me--and no doubt, I'm dating myself--that no one is any longer selling, and parts are no longer available for, the basic contractor saw that Delta...

    By necessity, this is what I frequently must do: a circular saw, usually, a jig saw or handsaw sometimes, due to limitations on cross cut capacity both to the left and right of my saw. It works, of...
