    I have two of their 6" digital calipers, one with a scar and the other with the wrong battery door. I also have a HF one that's 12". The HF just feels like there's sand in it when you slide it. ...

    I'm using a Mitutoyo digital rotation meter. It's older and I have no idea if it's still in calibration but it should be pretty close. I don't know if they even make it anymore. I'll measure the...

    I can check the diameter of the drum but I have to believe that it's the original. Unless they made different sizes I would suspect they are all the same diameter. The pulley could be changed but...

    The basic design hasn't changed but the specs for it seam to have. The spindle stayed 3/4" but it's almost 7" long so it can hold a cutter up to 5 1/2" tall. It was offered without a motor and I...

    It's a 2800B. It didn't say on it so I measured the rpm of the spindle. It was a little over 7800 rpm.

    Thanks Paul. Since I can't change the speed the only thing I can change is the diameter...

    Without a photo I can only offer that if you've rough turned it then let it dry and then decide what's the best way to deal with it.

    Thanks for all the replies. One of the reasons why I started this now, before I'm ready to try, is I wanted time to process all of the different opinions.

    The shaper is made by Poitras. It's a 3/4" shaft but the previous owner, a cabinet shop, used it exclusively with 1 1/4" tooling. It's a more basic design with only one speed. The whole spindle,...

    Byrd head for shaper

    I'm thinking of trying my hand at making a rocking chair. I figure the first few will be out of red maple (throw away wood around here) and could end up in the fireplace until I get a design I like...

    If it was me I would cut some wood the same thickness of the height of the blue part of the jig to support the work piece and put it in front of the blade. It may not be your problem but it's not...

    Those old Delta 14" cast iron band saws are like an AR-15. Tons of stuff you can add to them, some very useful, some more just looks than functional. A stiffer spring is one of the few things I...

    That one in the background looks like what the Chinese copied when they made the Harbor Freight band saw. I'm guessing under the cover above the stand is some pulleys to change the speed. I would...

    It sounds like you have the tools for setting up the planer. If the above advise doesn't work I would do some more measurements. Check to see if the table is flat. To do it I would set up your...

    When I was looking I looked at the things that couldn't be easily upgraded. How robust is the trunnion and how heavy is it. To me a heavier saw means thicker metal was used somewhere. The spine of...

    I have a Prazi saw attachment for my circular saw. It's a very crude saw. I needed it for cutting the foam panels for the exterior timber frame walls. It's at best a small step up from a chainsaw,...

    The stuff I have no longer has a label on it. My guess is it's over 15 years old and no longer has a label. I got it back when I was doing a lot more automotive bodywork. The pressure sensitive...

    Powermatic 8" jointer

    I was talking with a coworker last week and he said his father has a PM 60 8" jointer that hasn't been used in years. It's about 300 miles away and in a basement so I would have to deal with that if...
