Propane question - Generator Fuel - 8 replies

It’s germane to the forum, because I use the generator when we lose power in the shop. LOL. I’ve got three 120g propane tanks to run my generator. They are “ganged” together, but it only seems to draw from the first tank in the line. It would seem to me that they would equalize, but the other two are full up when the ...

Band Saw Recommendation - 12 replies

Hi folks, Believe it or not, my shop does not include a band saw. I seek to remedy this. On-line reviews seem conflicting. Price isn’t the number one factor, but is a consideration. Reliability is important, I see reviews of some of the saws that say the blades are hard to adjust to track correctly, I had a Jet Belt sander that a...

Router table with 2.5" Dust Control output(?) - 7 replies

I bought several “purpose built” custom router tables in an asset purchase of a small woodshop. Everything in the shop is set up for 4” DC connections, except for one which has a 2.5” output. That table has a function that tends to put out a lot of sawdust, so I’m thinking it was built this way because the reduced...

My Dust Collector sucks at sucking - 35 replies

Hi Friends, The DC system in my shop has developed a distinct last of suction. All the hoses are clear and the gates are properly closed. Used to be much more suction. A while back the motor was making a funny noise when shutting off/winding down, but it sounds OK(ish) now. I took the squirrel wheel cover off, and all the blades on the im...

Going to buy a CNC Router - I Need to know what I need to know! - 23 replies

We’ve got a small “Mom & Pop” commercial wood shop. Mostly we build raised bed garden kits, which is obviously pretty seasonal (depending on where you live :-) ) We’re considering getting a CNC Router table to take on some new types of projects we have in mind, including sign making and table top inlay and such. ...

JET JTAS-10-1 Tilting Arbor Saw - Changing blade? - 11 replies

Hello, I have a JET JTAS-10-1 Tilting Arbor Saw & need to replace the blade. I bought this machine as part of an asset purchase of small woodworking company. I have a selection of wrenches that I got will all the equipment, but none of them are big enough to fit the nut on the blade. I don’t have the manual, but looking up some s...

CO2 alarms going off in wood shop - 14 replies

The last two times I’ve been working in my shop, after I was finished, the CO2 alarms started going off. My shop is in over my garage. There is one sensor in the shop hallway, and another in the furnace room downstairs in the garage. I have a DC system and an air filtration system. I THINK that both times it happened, it’s happe...

Saw Blades - Please Explain - 19 replies

Hi folks, So I have a chop saw that I use for primarily for making raised garden bed kits. I’m using WRC (Western Red Cedar), in 2×6 & 4×4, but I will use the saw for other projects. The blade on the left side of the photograph is what is on the saw now. It seems to need sharpening. On the left are 3 other blades that...

Compressor Tank - Repairable - 18 replies

Anybody know anything about compressor tanks? I got this as part of a bigger equipment purchase. The previous owner had (tried) to put some attachment on it so he could spray finishes with it. The threads are all buggered up as you can see from the picture. Can this this be plugged up sufficiently so I can use the compressor, or is it just...
