Paint Stripped in dip tank, wood-fill leaving black stain - 4 replies

Perhaps the learned teams perusing these forums can help me with this question. In November 2018, I had 8 doors dip-stripped. Some had paint only; others had paint over shellac. On one that was paint-only, very nice 110-y-o Douglas fir, my wood putty is leaving a black stain behind as I sand it off. Anywhere the putty sat, the wood is blac...

Maximum Blade Speed (rpm at the arbor) - 4,000 vs 4,400 - 4 replies

All, I turn again to the fount of the faithful. :-) I figured out yesterday why my new dado stack was making noise on wind-down after powering off. The darned drive pulley is loose on the shaft. It’s a new Baldor motor, but the original PM 66 3-groove sheave is wearing out in the bore. It shows a 3-thou difference between the end that i...

Jet Shaper 22CS parts Wanted to Buy - 2 replies

Hi – I bought a Jet 22CS shaper a couple years ago. Finally got a shop space set up, and found that I’m missing some parts. Anyone have any that are orphaned from their shaper, that they might want to get rid of cheap? I need the 2 hold-downs (I have the long L-bolts, but need the hold-down, and the bracket that slips over the lon...

Jet OS16 Planer - Separating Head Assembly from Base Assembly - 19 replies

Hi – I’m at the end of my rope on this. I bought a used Jet OS16 planer. Nice machine, low use, BADLY used. All the rollers, fingers, blades, cutter head, etc. are really gummed up. They were trying to repurpose pallets. (Guess what the knives look like!) So I’ve got the manual, watched a really awesome “delta” d...

New Bedroom Set - New Wood - Cherry? Amana? - 0 replies

Well what the heck does a wood forum do but answer questions about wood and wood tools?! Your thoughts on relative value AND how to repair a missing chunk? This is marketed as Amish (not) and Amana (maybe, but I cannot find anything to support it online). Regardless, it is of excell...

What is this bedroom set made of? - 11 replies Hi! I’ve posted once here and I got top-drawer help. Maybe you can help me with this one? What the heck is it!? The posting says “oak” but we know at a glance that ain’t so. It looks a bit like pine, but it seems a bit to “nice” for pine. I though...

New bearing guide? Jet 710750 18” bandsaw - 4 replies

Hi – I picked up a Jet 710750 18” bandsaw used the other day. It had a rusty table, which cleaned up nicely with 220-grit, a carborandum stone (coarse then lots on the fine), then 0000 steel wool, with WD-40 to loosen it all up. It has very few hours on it. But it has a small problem. One side of the lower rear bearing guide has a bit o...

Delta 36-900 Unisaw - 3 replies

Hi – I’m still looking for a good cabinet saw! I’ve searched the wide internet via Google, but this saw has pretty much no commentary going for it ! (Or against it, for that matter.) Delta 36-900 Unisaw Limited Edition Norm Abrams arbor saw I understand from what I have read is that they were built in 1996? Would anyone k...

1996 Unisaw - Biesemeyer fence 42"(?) 3hp, model 34-802 - Value? - 14 replies

Hi – I’m looking at a January 1996 Unisaw, model 34-802. Seller says it is in excellent condition, reground table-top. Was parked in a shed and picked up some light rust from his PO, so he had it ground, used it a while, then parked it. I’ve done a ton of research and I believe this is a good saw at < $1K, but wondered if...
