SOLD - 0 replies

I have 2 larger floor machines that I need to sell off. One is a Delta table saw. The other is a floor model Porter Cable Drill Press. The Table saw is about 6 months old, the drill press 2 months. I need to sell off before winter as it looks like I may be moving in the Spring. The Saw was about $650- looking for $475. Drill press was $375...

Has anyone abandoned their air compressor... - 7 replies

...and gone over to cordless completely. I have had both a compressor with air guns and a Dewalt cordless brad nailer for a while. I found that I usually grab the cordless because of convenience and because the compressor was fraught with issues. I recently pulled out the compressor and found it had finally died. Now I’m wondering whet...

Vintage Red Star Radial Arm Turret Saw For Sale MINT - 24 replies

Back in August, a children’s theatre company that I work with was in need of a replacement for a Radial Arm Saw they had been using to produce scenery. They gave me a modest budget- $350. I made some posts on the site and got some leads. I knew that I had to find an older model and only certain brands were any good. I l...

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw...Problems solved??? - 25 replies

Anyone know if the R4512 alignment issues have been solved once and for all? Need to purchase a new table saw for the college wood shop. Budget limits us to around $600. While the Delta at Lowes seems ok, there seem to be some serious questions about customer support and parts availability. The Porter Cable contractors saw is no longer avai...

Dust Collection/Exhaust Question - 10 replies

Not too long ago, I asked for a recommendation on a dust collector. The answer was almost unanimously the Harbor Freight unit. Since that model comes with a 5 micron bag and since I don’t have the budget to upgrade to a Wynn Filter at this time, I had a question. I don’t have a lot of extra space in the shop but I do have a windo...

Bolt sheared off, stuck in table saw wing - 11 replies

Here’s a fun one… I just picked up a Ridgid TS2412 in excellent shape. Since I got a good deal I decided to upgrade it with cast iron wings. First side went great. Second side one of the bolts attaching the steel wing to the body of the saw was stripped in a way I’ve never seen before- I could twist the bolt and the nut in opposit...

Should you cover cast iron tops? - 40 replies

I recently upgraded to a cast iron table saw and jointer. My shop is in my garage and I live in upstate NY. I don’t have the funds to address temperature control at this time. I coat them periodically with Johnson’s paste wax but am concerned that I will need to do more as the weather changes. I know that HTC has “breathable...

DeWalt DW734 Planer issue - 19 replies

I’ve owned a DeWalt DW734 for a little over a month. I did a lot of research and posted questions here before deciding on it. When I first set it up, there were a few things I didn’t like: the dust shoot makes it impossible to lift the outfeed table for storage (the flipside of which would be not using the shoot) neither of which...

Need a planer...Ryobi AP1301? - 13 replies

Sorry to be a pain…I’ve posted a couple of threads on here asking about different planers. There was an older model Delta on Craigslist but it wasn’t in the condition described so I passed. The Delta 22-555 is available near me for around $315, which is a little over the top of my budget, but if it’s a quality tool I c...

Delta 22-555 benchtop planer - 4 replies

I know that B&D bought Delta, but some of the Delta and Porter Cable tools are still decent (PC 690 router). Wondered if anyone had tried the new Delta 22-555 benchtop planer? 4 column design and stainless steel beds sound promising.
