How to Replace a Motor?? - 8 replies

I want to swap out motors on the 20” Delta Bandsaw I just acquired. It currently has a 1.5HP 3 Phase Baldor motor connected to a Leeson VFD. Only problem is, once I set it up with a Static Phase Converter I am going to lose 1/3-1/2 of the HP. It will be much cheaper to swap out motors than to buy a rotary phase converter, I think. I nee...

Steussy Bowl Saw?? - 2 replies

I have been eyeing this little gem and am about to take the leap. Looking for anyone with first hand experience using the Bowl Saw. It looks pretty basic & simple. Plus @ Under $75 the price is more manageable than the competitive products. In my book it doesn’t have to be perfect. Even if I just get some pen blanks out of it....

Seattle Area Saw Mill - 4 replies

LJ’s, I have a huge Cherry tree I am in the midst of acquiring. Beautiful 8’ long by 25” diameter, that I want to make 3” slabs out of. A few months ago I had been in touch with a guy in my area that had a Wood Mizer on his property and would rent it out. In a fit of organizational brilliance I blindly deleted all e-ma...

Tool Mule @ Woodturners Catalog?? - 3 replies

I have been checking out the Tool Mule over at Woodturners catalog. Looks like a slick little system that would take care of many of the organizational issues I have around the lathe. I know there are plenty of systems I could build that would be near or under my lathe but frankly I would rather spend my time working on projects as opposed to wo...

Vacuum Chuck - 3 replies

I recently picked up a vacuum pump but am a little short on knowledge of where to get other parts to put together a vacuum chuck. I have picked out the chuck I am going to purchase. But it’s everything between the chuck and the pump that I am clueless about. I have seen it highly suggested that a filter be added but no clue what or where o...
