Cold saw brag - 9 replies

I am so excited and although this is a woodworking forum I have to say something. I have found a cold saw for peanuts. For those that don’t know, a cold saw is a super high torque gear reduction saw with a liquid coolant system for cutting metals. Back in the day I used one just like it. It’s a German saw. At some point th...

Motor repair? I think I need a contact plate: - 7 replies

I just bought a Powermatic 073 1.5hp Dust Collector. I got a great deal because the motor seems to have some issues, it starts slow and then trips the breaker evidently. Beside the motor issue, it looks like it is in perfect condition, came with a Wynn filter, lots of hose fittings, clamps and other hardware. Did I mention it was cheap?...

Which router table insert is best (for Triton TRA001)? - 18 replies

Looking forward to a router wing project, I have a Triton router in a portable router table. I bought the table used, with insert and after drilling it to mount the Triton, it did the job I bought it for. Now I want to have the best router wing I can make which means I should cut it for the best insert I can afford and add any other features...

Making a VSC/Biesemeyer style fence, any interest? - 2 replies

I have a saw I am fixing up and I know how nice a good fence can be. Looking at the Very Super Cool Tools website, they show how to make a Biesemeyer compatible fence rail and they sell a fence that takes an 80/20 section aluminum rail. It is a very nice system but expensive. I have been thinking about it and want to make an all aluminu...

Shopsmith overarm pin router, what I have learned: - 1 reply

I bought a single column stand alone pin router in pretty good condition. It is not something you need a Shopsmith machine to attach it to. I have to say I am both surprised and impressed with the machine. I haven’t used it yet but I have seen some work it has done and it didn’t exhibit any chatter, the lines were straight which...

C-clamps, how the mighty have fallen - 1 reply

I have done some woodworking over the years but I have done much more metal fabrication and professionally. I’m working up a small shop space and when I was looking for a Wilton vise I saw a pair of NOS Wilton 404 4” standard duty C-clamps. The price was right so I bought them. A couple days ago I stopped at a home improvement...

Old no-name made in Taiwan contractor saw, help me figure out what it is. - 18 replies

I bought a tablesaw on Craigslist for $75. It is probably 20+ years old but it has a pair of cast iron solid top wings and runs smooth and quiet when it is turned on. The motor is a 1.5 hp. The fence rides on two round tubes and might be OK but I want to make an 8020 extrusion fence either way. The weird thing is that it has a big labe...
