    Ah, yes. Thanks for reminding me. I only ever sold K500Sís, so didnít even think about the smaller K500ís. Like David said, the double-hung trunion is not something a hobbyist woodworker would ever...

    David, that’s a great solution. A machine shop could probably bore out the ID pretty easily (if required).

    I’ve never actually removed the arbor shaft from the lower wheel. Not that it matters now but that step is not necessary in order to access the footbrake. I agree with Robert: Best to take it to...

    I think Robert is onto something here: OP, any chance the arbor shaft is hitting the clock bolts in the rear hub as you try to slide it in? It makes no sense that you could remove the lower wheel by...

    Len, a former customer of mine attached a mandrel to the handwheel shaft on his FS41E and was able to use a cordless drill gun to act as power-drive. Jeff… (I’m forgetting his last name); maybe he...

    OP, can you post some pics of what you are seeing? The upper flywheel on Centauros does require a puller/driver to remove from the arbor shaft but AFAIR, the lower wheel simply slips back into place....

    The Felder K500 uses a true double-hung trunion, just like 700-Series. This being said OP, the issue you are mentioning is not a problem in the real world. I sold a million Minimax saws that had the...

    Chris, with all due respect, every EU manufacturer actually has to conform to and identify exact data as far as chip extraction, CFM needed, etc. Now, that being said, the design of dust extraction...

    Just my opinion, which anyone is free to accept or reject as they like: Don’t overthink the dust collection situation and just buy a 1-phase extractor. 5hp is awesome but 3hp is more than adequate...

    Iíve used/sold MANY of both. To answer your question, there is no real-world difference between those machines as far as dust extraction, especially with modern spiral cutterheads. The biggest...

    This on the fast speed? Big planers that are running fast just spit chips a lot of the time.

    Hi Len. As others said, I would manually cycle the wall breaker even though it doesnít appear tripped. This exact thing happened to one of our A/C units last weekend. Start with the obvious. I donít...

    Looks like the predecessor to the Carter “Zefyr”s, which many Italian manufacturers used on and off over the years. In for pics of the whole beast!

    ‘nuther vote for the wire brush. Actually, I’ve been using these cup brushes from Harbor Freight that have red synthetic bristles. A little friendlier to the hands when installing/removing.
