    Yup! Steep investment, but I think it may be better than trying to fix a bad blade.
    Also agree with JK that getting plane irons super flat is not really necessary. Although a Hock blade may come...

    I'm with Alex on this. I went through that choice when buying my lathe. Less swing Jet (save 1000 bucks or so) or more swing PM. I opted to get the less capacity Jet and spend the 1000 bucks or so on...

    I have 2 ideas. Do you have another Nova chuck body to try mounting the slides? The other idea is to install the slides loosely and fully close the chuck which should align the jaw set and then...

    I don't personally own a set, but I do have dumb question #1. Did you get the order right? I can't imagine both sets of jaws not seating correctly.
  6. The points should fit in between the chuck jaws...

    The points should fit in between the chuck jaws as mentioned before. True, you can't fit a 11/16 point to point inside a 5/8 hole, but a chuck is different.
    I'm in the camp that says you have a...

    I use the Blue towels from Costco. Cheap. Less lint than the regular paper towels. I cut a sheet into smaller squares depending on the use, and keep them handy in a ziplock. Use once and toss them on...

    Oh man. I thought corrugated planes were rarer than smoothies. No wonder I got my 8C cheap. 25 bucks...... I guess for a jointer, it will only be used on the flats, so the corrugated would less of a...

    If you're married, seriously, I'd check with the wife before I try to dry wood in the oven.
    I also don't think its a good idea. Cut your slabs, let it air dry. Why do you want to oven dry it? Are...

    I'll have to agree. It's quite amazing how fast it removes wood with a coarse coarse disk in. You did say finish is not a concern. With finer grits wasting wood will take more time. If time is money,...

    Ok, I'll toss in my worthless $0.02. Mount it on the lathe and start turning. Perhaps it will come to you what it wants to become. Everything you turn starts as a cylinder. Rough it out and see what...

    For details, if you have a 4" grinder, Arbortech does sell a ball attachment that runs less than 100 bucks. For the seat grinding/carving, again if you...
