    Are you building face frame cabinets? Frameless? Doing your doors in house? (sorry if I missed it above). How much space do you have?

    I do very little sheet goods work, but when I do get the...

    It really is an odd system. They're back up to a T77 with their new saw, which is NOTHING like the T78 being discussed. One of these days, those fortune cookie lottery numbers are going to be right,...

    I have one of these shapers in a similar configuration (2 hp 3 phase), so here's a few thoughts.

    Double check the spindle size. These were sold as 1" spindle machines, though some have since...

    I'd second the recommendation that the OP spend some time with the Bob Vaughan video on knife setting. It goes through a cutterhead diagram that will answer a lot of the questions that have been...

    I just finished some bent lam work with Unibond One and had a reasonably positive experience. The open time is pretty good and I got next to nothing springback-wise. Glueline dries hard enough to cut...
  8. Another vote for nothing. Grip for hand tool work...

    Another vote for nothing. Grip for hand tool work is more important than any benefits a finish offers, and it gets resurfaced every year or two, so no point in attempting to pretty it up.

    My 24" Crescent jointer has one-piece gibs (it's a Crescent, so they're different than most other gibs, but it's a one-piece bar.) My 18" delta wedgebed planer has a two-piece gib setup for each...

    Adding on to cover the rest of your questions... Guides can be replaced or rebuilt, but many of the stock guides on that class of machine are as good as or better than anything you'll get today.

    If that F&E is even an option.... GO GET IT! Monster of a saw. But make sure you're comfortable handling and transporting something that size. Even if it needs tires (which can be expensive) and a...

    I've seen one of those in person. Magnificent machine, but if you're worried about saving space, it's probably not the right planer for you. :D

    I’ve done several of these. They’re tricky, but people really like them for the reason you mentioned - no leaf to store under the bed.

    You certainly can (assuming it's belt driven like Andrew said), but it might be easier and cheaper to just throw a VFD on it and run it as-is.

    I've done this, but I have a 24" jointer that's the better part of 8 feet long. I wouldn't feel comfortable doing it on a small (short bed) machine. I also haven't repeated it since trying it once,...

    Use it? Oh yes! It gets a lot of use and is by far my favorite machine! It's basically as safe as any jointer you can buy today. It has a 4 knife "safety" cutterhead head that was so good that other...

    I can second this. I had one for over a decade and outside of bevel cutting (which I did very little of), it was a solid machine. I did the typical link belt/machined pulleys/Vega fence upgrades and...

    Oldest is my 24" Crescent jointer. The cutterhead has a 1915 patent date, but the castings only have a 4 digit serial number, which puts it possibly a decade earlier. (dating a Crescent based on...

    My Sawstop is the only modern machine I own. Next newest is a 1980, and I go all the way back to about 1915, so my idea of a problematic machine involves a welding cracks in cast aluminum bandsaw...
