Powermatic PM72 in Arizona - 24 replies

Hello all, I’m selling my Powermatic PM72. It’s a great machine but I’m scaling down some of the size of my tools and this one is a pretty big machine. Larger than the PM66 younger brother. Everything works great, cones with a phase converter, Shark Gaurd, Wixey digital gauge, mobile base, etc. should do well for someone, I know it’s been awe...

Measure your midi lathe bed please. - 23 replies

Good day all. I would like to get a lathe bed extension but I have a General International midi lathe with a 14” swing (25-114). The only place I found that has an extension wants $240 plus shipping and honestly it’s discontinued everywhere so I imagine they will email to say they really don’t have one. So, I know a lot of these will be in...

Troubleshoot this Super Dust Deputy issue please - 16 replies

Good day. Too many chips get past my Super Dust deputy. I would like some input. 20” powermatic planerPlaning 2×6’s that we’re left over from my shed build. Going to use them for a shelf under my tablesaw extension wing to hold a fence or two. 4” PVC routed from the SDD to the planer. Soft hose the last bit of the way to the planer...

Shop Dog - 14 replies

I wonder how many of you all have a shop dog? I have always had a dog in my life. I’ve had a Rottweiler and have trained and participated in the Maricopa county search and rescue with that dog years ago. I’ve had a Great Dane. My latest buddy was more of a shop dog. She went everywhere with me. She was a Boston Terrier. She was ugly ...

I think this user is spam. Just received a PM saying they want to love me long time and send pics, etc. What do we do with these types of messages/users?

Arm-r-seal on table top...when can I eat? - 28 replies

I’ve put arm-r-seal on my dining room table top. I don’t usually use poly/varnish so I’m curious how quick can I use the table? Do I have to wait a couple weeks before the family gathers up and eats on it or is it cured enough when it dries to handle dinner duties? For what it’s worth I have it in a high heat (90+ degr...

DPDT Switch - Electrical nerds please assist - 17 replies

Ok I’m a nerd but not electrical. I do have general electrical knowledge but I don’t do it for a living so it’s not second nature for me. What I’m doing you ask? I’m a loser at the moment and need to share my dryer outlet with my garage tools. It’s the only 240V plug I have and the expense of a new panel wi...

Super Dust Deputy, this can't be right. - 41 replies

Well, I plumbed the shop with 4” pvc, a super dust deputy, and my Jet 1100 all venting out two 4” vent dryers outside. I have what I think is a problem. First, let me say the suction is great. Way better than previously using flex hose all over the shop and the horrible 30 micron bag my Jet came with. That’s the good news. ...

Hock Krenov Blades, how long? - 4 replies

I’m going to take advantage of the Woodcraft 15% off and grab a handful of wider Hock Krenov blades. My question is, should I go with 3.5” or 4.5” tall? I would think I could build the side walls taller if I wanted and would result in a heftier plane in the end if I went tall. If I didn’t build it out then the extra inch ...

Drill Sargent - 4 replies

All, I have one of these Drill Sargents. It came with my floor standing drill press, I don’t use it. I was wondering however if there is something else I could potentially use it for. I’m not sure what but maybe I could come up with something, a custom application?? Otherwise I guess I’ll look at selling it. It works awesome...

Planer doesn't stay set. - 11 replies

Hey all, I’m running big slabs through the Powermatic PM209 planer. Biggest slabs yet. It started off fine after the first couple of passes on the first slab then it wouldn’t auto feed anymore. So I pulled out the specs and tuned it up. It was way out of spec. Every setting was off from the rollers, chip breaker, pressure bar, etc. I...

Hand Full of Hand Planes *Upadted* - 13 replies

Stanley 10 1/2 to the best of my knowledge it’s around a type 8 or 9 which dates it between 1899 – 1907. It’s in pretty good shape for its age. It works. There is a small chip behind the blade in the middle. The sole is stained but relatively flat. It could be worked to be very useful. Tote and knob don’t appear to have c...

Incra magnetic router table base plate blank *updated* - 2 replies

I have a used Incra router table base plate. This is a blank one so you drill your own holes or better yet use it like I did with a router lift. It comes custom with some scratches. It also has three of the magnetic rings that go with it. You get what you see. $80 shipping included within the continental US.

Incra 5000 goodbye miter saw?? - 16 replies

Well, I did some work for AZWoody and he gave me his Incra 5000 sled as a sort of payment. I’ve used it exclusively over the past week and have used it a bunch. I will have to say, it’s kind of awesome. AZWoody doesn’t use it anymore because he put a slider on his saw. With that said and having the 14” blade on my PM72 wi...

Table leg tenon - 19 replies

All, I’m making some table legs that are wide, you’ll see something similar in the pic. I was curious how deep the mortise and tenon should be to join the base piece with the top contrasting wood? Any input is appreciated.

Econo Kiln J2936 - 5 replies

All, I have an opportunity to get one of these for free, I would need to convert it to gas or something but is it even worth getting to harden steel or make tools? I’m guessing no but wouldn’t mine some input from some of the people I know that work steel for tools. It’s also pretty big and originally used for ceramic. Ripthorn...

Planer sled options.... - 41 replies

I’ve done some research and can’t decide which to build here. First, I got rid of my Makita 2030 planer/jointer combo due to space, fantastic little machine, loved it but I replaced it with a 20” Powermatic planer so now I am without a jointer. FWIW I work with a lot of slabs or wide material so the 6” jointer the Maki...

Thien separator/super dust deputy, vent outside. - 18 replies

For those of you who have a 2 stage DC setup, why aren’t you running through your thien or super dust deputy and then the rest outside? Is there still too much dust? Are you just not wanting to knock a hole in your shop to run a dryer vent? Replacement air coming in that would ruin you climate control? Was thinking about building a thie...

Well I've blown the budget big time now....(tool gloat) - 12 replies

New drum sander from AZWoody, then a laser, the festool sander should get here someday, and now this popped up on my CL fishing app. He wouldn’t go down in price but I was ok with that. Snuck out of work today to go see it and test it. Worked well except the rear feed roller wasn’t pushing everything all the way out of the back of th...
