Is this a normal resaw result? - 17 replies

Just finished setting up my new Harvey 14” bandsaw. As I built the cabinet to go between the mobile base and the saw, I used the bandsaw to resaw a piece of dunnage I had in my shed to use as the front cross-member in the case. My old bandsaw is a Craftsman 10” with a 3/8”, 7tpi blade without an aggressive kerf. My new saw c...

Harvey Ambassador C14 Bandsaw - cabinet - 0 replies

All, In a separate thread I asked about the space my 125” (317.5cm) bandsaw blades will take up, because I was considering building a cabinet between my mobile base and the saw to store them. I’ve just completed that cabinet, and since at least one of you was interested I’ll share the project here. The saw on its base sta...

Bandsaw blade drawer in base - height? - 9 replies

Hey all - I just got my new Harvey Ambassador C14 bandsaw Tuesday and am creating a mobile base for it. No, I cannot bolt it to the floor – it must be portable. I am building a short, one-drawer cabinet on top of the all-swivel mobile base I bought to mount it on, to hold spare blades and any other tool-specific gadgets. I’ll bolt...

Riving knives, splitters, blade kerfs, and philosophies - 18 replies

I just bought a new Grizzly G0941 table saw (just before the prices went up …). Like every other brand I looked at, the riving knife and splitter provided is for a “standard” kerf blade, not the thin-kerf blades DeWALT, Freud and its Diablo brand, and others readily available at consumer markets now sell. I’m in a bit of ...

New mortiser! Now what? - 27 replies

Hi all – I just got a Jet JBM-5 benchtop mortiser free from someone, after first thinking I’d buy the Delta mortising jig. Can’t pass up free, right? Especially for a purpose-built tool rather than a kludge. This has been very lightly used and the only chisel/bit ever used is the 1/2” – and it is still incredibly sh...

Move router EVS controller? - 2 replies

Hi, As I plan my under-table setup for my router I’m thinking about how to most simply control it. ON/OFF is easy and built into tables, or fashioning a switch is simple if I build my own setup or just attach a router extension to my table saw (my current plan). I’d like not to have to reach under the table when it is necessary to change t...

Router on table saw - convert 240v to 110v at the table? - 48 replies

I’ve just ordered a new table saw and plan run it on 240v. I also want to put a router table as an extension wing. Here in the US, the routers I can afford all run 110v. I already have two separate, dedicated 240v 20amp circuits from my panel to NEMA 6-20 receptacles. One runs my dust collector and the other my saw. Both tools are run from th...

Harvey ALPHA HW110LC-36P on the way - 3 replies

First time poster, have been lurking and reading while researching a new table saw. One of my top candidates, partly based on input here, was the Harvey ALPHA HW110LC-36P. Yesterday capped it: 20% off meant free shipping so I went for it. I have a 45-year-old Craftsman 12” direct drive saw, the 113.24181. It has served me well for what it is ...
