    No, the 18bx comes standard with a more or less conventional high/low fence. It's nice and works well, but doesn't have the microadjust wheel like the driftmaster.

    They are 3.4cm, not a standard here or in metric. 1.25 would probably work, but then I'd have to weld in end pieces and replace the scales on all 8 legs. A lot easier to make some booties I think....

    The laguna is a fine saw, but I doubt you'd save much room over the 20". I mean, I'm the last guy to talk someone out of buying a tool, but most of the space needed at the bandsaw is infeed and...

    Chris, thanks for checking.

    Since a screw on extension isn't practical given the odd thread (although I could drill out and retap for 9/16), I thought I would just make booties.....a 2 1/2 square...

    Yes, this has been a problem for me too. I've had a number of outgrown but perfectly usable machines that I've tried to find a good home for without much success. I usually just end up donating...

    Sure looks identical except for color as you say. Right down to the red/white pinch warning label. If you get a minute, check and see if you have the wonky threads on the casters. See if a...

    I bought one in the early 80's and still have it. I built many, many projects using only it. I've since replaced most of its functions with dedicated tools, but still use it for drill press and...

    Hmmm, well, since it's already ruined, perhaps a heat gun will soften the hose enough to let you pull it out a little at a time? But have to be careful to heat the hose mostly and not the pipe. ...
  12. Quick Review: Bora PM 2700 expandable roller stand

    I needed a better way to deal with long (12-14') stock at the bandsaw, jointer and planer. For my mantel project I need to work with stock that long. I have a couple of single roller stands I have...
  13. Anybody using Grass Undermount slides?

    I went to an open house/mini trade show at Cleveland Tool and Cutter today and got to talking to the Grass rep about their Dynapro 16 series undermount slides. They seem to have a number of...

    On my mantel project I am planning to do mitered returns on the top (and a lower shelf) to hide the end grain. Drawing below. Given the top is under a foot wide, Can I just glue on the return using...

    If you haven't already removed the old top, why not cut it down a little (so it doesn't show much) and then mount the new top above it. The extra weight is a good thing, and if you have dog holes in...

    Well I respectively disagree. Ripping a board does nothing *for* stability unless you flip alternate boards when you glue them back together, and if you do that, it certainly *does* mess with the...

    Richard,

    I did look at the fast cap hood. I chose the Rousseau because it had a port for dust collector hookup and also because the open front area of the fast cap is even larger than the...

    In general, stepper motors are somewhat standardized and you can usually find equivalent replacements, but you have to have good data on your current motor. Frame size (usually a NEMA number), steps...
