Delta 31-250 Drum Sander elevation gear removal - 14 replies

I have some dead spots (stripped gear teeth) on my Delta 31-250 drum sander, which I realize is quite common with this sander.

Please fix the Zoom feature on the projects pages. Not too much to ask - 1 reply

I’m not sure if anyone has posted about this yet. But for the last several weeks, clicking on the zoom feature to zoom in on the project pictures, simply enlarges the first picture, but leaves no option to move to the next picture.

I’d like to upgrade from a Shop Fox 1752 10” lathe to the 1758 16×43” lathe. Does anyone have experience on it? I like the small lathe, just need something larger to turn canes in one piece.
