Need Images of a Jepson B6609 Sander - 1 reply

Does anyone have a Jepson B6609 6” X 48” Belt & Disc Sander? I need pictures to reassemble the belt mechanism to the stand. I took it apart to replace a broken polley and to put on a new belt. Stuff at work got crazy and I’ve been away from the tool too long to remember in what order things go. Thanks in advance to anyone w...

Adjusting Tension on a 6"x48" Belt Sander - 6 replies

Does anyone have any experience adjusting the tension on the belt for a Jepson Model B6609 6”x48” Belt/Disc Sander? I don’t understand the adjustment methodology and can’t keep the belt from pulling to one side or the other. There appears to be 2 adjustment rollers and 2 lock down bolts (one of each on either side). IR...

Delta line boring machine - 2 replies

In the past, I’ve used a contractor friend’s Delta 32-325 line boring machine to make shelving pin holes for Cabinets. He now wants to sell the machine and will let it go for $500. It’s at least 10 years old, so I’m concerned about the condition of the spindle gears. I’d appreciate input from those that have this ma...

Dust Collection Hose and Fittings Assembly - 18 replies

Does anyone have a trick or technique for assembling dust collection hose to fittings that are a very tight fit? It seems like everything I get from Rockler is the same diameter. The hose to blast gates are too tight of a fit, the hose to coupling (to splice two hose lengths together) is too tight of a fit, etc. It seems like the hose should be ...

Dust Collector Problem - 16 replies

I finally got my dust collection system in place. Last night, to test it, I turned the dust collector on for a couple of minutes and everything worked fine. This morning I adjusted some of the hose fitting and looked things over once again. I noticed that my test last night was done with both blast gates closed. I opened one gate to run it again...

Which Router to Mount? - 9 replies

I’m finally going to mount a router in my table saw extension table, and could use some experienced advice. I plan to purchase a Kregg insert plate, and use my table saw fence (with a jig set up) for the fence and dust collection. My question for those of you that have done this (or have an opinion on the matter) is, which router should I ...

Which Unisaw Should I Keep? - 23 replies

This is a nice problem to have, and there’s no bad choice, but I would like your input on these two Unisaws. I have a Delta Unisaw model 34-802, but a buddy is retiring and closing his shop. He needs the money now, so I bought his Unisaw model 36-825 Limited Edition, even though I didn’t need it. I did it to help him out, and I figu...

Connecting tools to Dust Collection System - 11 replies

I could use some help/insight with dust collection. I have a Delta Unisaw without a motor cover or dust collection plate (it’s the small rectangular opening at the bottom type, under the motor). I can fabricate a dust port out of MDF and PVC pipe. Question #1, should I make the opening 4” or 6”? Question #2, does anyone know wh...

Do I really need a Jointer? - 84 replies

Can you guys give me your insight and experience on the need for a jointer. I’ve debated back and forth as to the need for such a tool. It seems so many are for sale on CL, reenforcing the notion that guys get them, don’t use them, and then want to sell them. I have a garage workshop and do woodworking as a hobby, not as a money maki...

Need Help/Input on Finding Proper Angles - 28 replies

I could use some help on how to find the proper angle to cut support pieces for my table project. This has always given me trouble. It comes up when installing diagonal support pieces on a picnic table, picnic bench, or any project with diagonal support pieces. In this case, I am running diagonal supports between two horizontal surfaces. The cut...

Jointer Reviews Needed - 3 replies

Is anyone familiar with the ELEPHANT 6” JOINTER MODEL WJ-150? I am considering buying one second hand and would like to know if there’s anything I should watch out for. Is it a good unit or should I stay away? Are parts easy to come by or are they out of business? How do the knives hold up, and can they be sharpen effectively? The on...

Jig Ideas Needed - 4 replies

I am planning a project to do Crown Molding in various rooms in my house. I have bullnose edges and would like to know if you guys have any jig recommendations. I have seen a couple jigs on the internet, but have no idea if they’re a waste of time or money. I’d appreciate your feedback on jigs you have bought or made that would simpl...

Unisaw Advice Sought - 2 replies

I’m looking at buying a used unisaw model 36-944 Premium Edition. I currently have a unisaw model 34-802. They seem to be about the same saw, except for the Premium Edition stuff (motor cover, dust collector, and hook for wrenches). The 36-944 was made in 1999 while the 34-802 was made in 1989 (I believe). I’m going to keep one and g...

8" Jointer Questions - 5 replies

As I passed on the last jointer I looked at, a new one has caught my eye. This one is an 8” jointer made by YMC, model # WJ-200. It is made in China. It looks good from the picture, but I’ve never heard of YMC. I did a google search and was directed to the TRUPRO website, out of Taiwan and China. It appeared to be the same tool, but ...

Powermatic Model 53 Jointer - 5 replies

I have a chance to pick up the above jointer for $100.00 but don’t know much about it. The price sounds good and there’s some rust on the top, but that’s about all I know. Most of the Powermatic jointers I see are yellow, but this one is green. Is that because it is older? Can anybody fill in the blanks for me? What to look ...

Porter Cable Biscuit Joiner #557 - 9 replies

I could use your opinions on the above joiner. I have a chance to pick one up on CL for $125.00, new and still in the box with the yellow shipping straps in place. I like Porter Cable, in general, and need a joiner. My question is, is this a good joiner and is it priced right? Thanks!

Purpose of a Jointer - 51 replies

I need some help. I’ve read a lot about the uses of a jointer but fail to see it’s proper value. Just to clarify, I put the onus on me not the tool. My understanding is that if a board is warped, twisted, or bowed, a jointer can remedy the problem (only to a degree in some cases). I have a planer that I think pretty much does some of...

Jigs and Such for a Unifence - 8 replies

As I read through many of the forums, and watch videos on You Tube, I’ve come across some great looking fence jigs for easier woodworking. However, almost without exception I see the fences are the Biesemeyer or Delta type (box shape) fences. I’d like to reproduce some of these items for my saw, but I have a Unifence that doesn’...

Rules of Woodworking, Rules of the Shop - 41 replies

As I’m fairly new to this site, I have found the forum topics very interesting and enlightening. One of the most helpful was the “Acronym Glossary” posted recently. With that in mind, I thought it might be helpful/interesting to know what are the rules of woodworking, or rules of the shop that you employ. For example, thereR...
