3D printing for the Woodshop - 7 replies

How many here have their own 3D printer to make up jigs, tools, brackets, etc. If you do have one what type of quality should I look for? I don’t want to get a cheap one that can only use cheap filament that will produce low quality plastic pieces that break. Let me know your experiences and what printers you have used or like/don’t like.

Moving soon, how should I protect my lumber? - 14 replies

How do you all protect your lumber when moving? My circumstances are that I am in the military and more than likely will have to have the movers pack my wood shop up along with the lumber I have collected.

I recently got the WEN 3 Speed Remote control air filtration system Model 3410. I was wondering the best placement for the system.

Delta T3 fence not moving right... - 14 replies

The clip that goes over the back guide rail seems to be very tight and when sliding it will shave off the coating on the rail. The fence seems to only be able to be adjusted left and right and then up/town in being able to ensure the fence is perpendicular to the table saw surface. When I move the fence along the rails it twists and won’t kee...

Homemade air filter? Worth it? - 13 replies

I am sure having one is better than nothing. But is buying one better than building one? I have a 2 car garage along with a older 2HP Grizzly dust collector. I always wear a dust mask even when using my dust collector or vacuum. I would like to get to where I don’t have to wear a mask all the time, after I make cuts. Would building a ho...

American Machine Tools Drill Press Model 1405 can’t find much on it - 4 replies

I think this company went out of business or got bought out. I recently was given the AMT-1405 and was wondering if anyone has had an AMT or even used this one before and what their opinions are. I don’t want to spend too much time trying fix it up if it is a piece of junk. Also been having a hard time finding a manual.

So my G1022 does not have any dust collection so I need to build some in. The question I have is what is the most cost effective way to connect up my 4” hose to my 3/4” MDF that I am using to build out the dust collection “box”.
