Fan Curves for new Grizzly Portable Cyclones are sort of odd - 42 replies

So I’ve been watching the info on the new Grizzly Cyclone DCs and recently saw that the manual is out and now has the fan performance curves for the G0860, G0861, and G0862 The weird thing is that the fan performance curves for the three machines are all a bit weird. On a first look, they have pretty poor performance, but beyond that t...

Info on elevation mechanism on Steel City 35605 (same as Craftsman 22124) - 4 replies

So in the middle of a build for a set of cabinets, I found that I couldn’t lower the saw blade all the way down on my Steel City 35605. Pulling the insert and looking down, the worm gear had broken loose and at a certain point, the gear would start sliding down the shaft rather than pulling the blade down. A little further investigatio...

Anybody know if there will be another Laguna sale anytime soon? Need a bandsaw. - 4 replies

I wanted to order the Laguna 1412 band saw during the last sale in November, but due to bad timing on my side and not reading the ad details very carefully, I missed the sale. I know it’s probably not going to be right away, but does anybody know when their next sale is likely to be? I don’t usually pay much attention as I don...

Performax 16/32 - leveling bed to drum trick - 5 replies

So if you have a Jet or Performax drum sander, you have probably had the joy of trying to get the bed level to the drum. It can be done, but it’s a hassle. On my 16/32, I have to loosen the 4 bolts holding the drum/motor assembly to the frame, adjust the tilt with the knob and then tighten the bolts back down, often shifting the head in ...

Does anyone know where I can buy a tilting top workmate in the US? - 25 replies

So I’ve been thinking about building a face frame assembly area with a tilted work surface sort of like a Kreg framing table but more in the 3×4 size range. Doing some research googling got me to a forum in Europe where a guy was doing something similar using a type of workmate that seems to be common in Europe that looks like the ...

So I’ve been wanting to upgrade my trusty Delta 37-190 to a helical cutter head, but couldn’t ever swallow the nearly $400 price tag for the Byrd head. Recently I saw that Grizzly has a helical cutter head that has a shear style set to the cutters and they were priced at $215. I did a bunch of research including calling Grizzly a...

GONE: Free planer dust hood for Delta 22-580 for cost of shipping. - 5 replies

Dust hood is gone now. I found this in a box of stuff my dad gave me that came out of his shop. It’s the dust hood for a Delta planer. I’m 99% sure it’s the Delta 50-446 dust hood and fits the Delta 22-580 planer. He does not have and has never had a Delta planer, so no idea where it came from. Anyway, I can’t us...

Bandsaw blade recommendations for bandsaw boxes? - 2 replies

Ok, so I was in the Austin Woodcraft a few weeks ago and I picked up the Bandsaw Box book by Drunkenwoodworker (LJ member). I’ve never made a bandsaw box before and I figured a good way to get started would be to build my way through the boxes in the book (and I seemed to find myself with a lot of small scrap pieces of about the right s...

Help - what do these router templates go to? - 11 replies

So I’m out visiting my dad yesterday and he asks me if I want these router templates that he got at some garage sale somewhere.

Getting new insulation blown in - radiant barrier paint option??? - 9 replies

So the insulation in my attic was never that deep to start with and with the settling over the years, it’s getting pretty bare in spots. I got a quote today for about $1.15/sq ft for R49 including eave baffles, hanging the existing AC ducts with strapping and installing an attic tent over the access ladder. For me the insulation is a no...
