Table Saw Motor Problem - No torque - 11 replies

Hi All, I have a used Powermatic Model 63 table saw that I bought a few years back off of Craigslist. The motor was originally wired for 220V, but I didn’t have an outlet in my shop, so I swapped the motor jumpers around for 120V.

Do I need a new router collet? - 9 replies

I was making a cut with a 3/8” up spiral bit in cherry. The cut was started at 3/8” deep. During the cut the bit started to climb up out of the collet and the slot being cut got wider and deeper. I thought I had the collet tightened properly. Is my collet just worn out? Looking at the cut it looks like the bit was off balance and...

working with cherry - 21 replies

Hi, I’m relatively new to woodworking and I’ve been tackling projects to increase my knowledge and skill. I’m working my way up to build a desk someday. After completing a few projects with cherry, I think that is what I want to make the desk out of. I like the arts and crafts style and this will be more of a table wit...
