Workshop operational tips. #20: Having trouble drumming up tension?

05-31-2020 09:22 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 6 comments »

Boys and Girls, A lot of people seem to have trouble getting the roll of sandpaper holding on their drumsander and start contemplating turning to the dark side of hook and loop conversion. Before you bite the bullet, try the following first. Ensure the paper is wrapped tightly on the drum. The paper doesn’t have to abut between turns/wraps. To stop the end from slipping out, bend it over itself before you manouver it into the tensioning clip. The sandpaper face on both side...

New Toys #2: 2019/2020 New Toys - Gloat!

01-02-2020 10:40 PM by Jerome | 5 comments »

Hello all, 2019 was a pretty good year in terms up upgrading existing toos with new/older/ more versatile tools. In 2018, the my old Jet bandsaw was replaced with a new 14” Jet Bandsaw. The focus was on better dust collection.In Feb 2019 only the CNC Prianha was purchased brand new. Well the CNC and the router, dust boot, touch plate, and a few hundred bucks worth of bits! However, it was still a good deal because i got it on sale for $1000, rather than $1600 which all of the accesso...

Performax/Jet 16-32 plus - Jetmax, PerforJet, PerJetMax,..... frankenstein tool gloat

08-16-2016 02:41 AM by Mike_D_S | 6 comments »

So I’ve had the Performax 10-20 plus for a while and really liked it, but in the back of my head I’ve been sort of thinking a bigger one would be nice. I happened to be browsing CL and came across a guy selling a Performax 16-32 plus with stand, extension tables and a 3/4 HP Delta dust collector for $600 last Friday. I went by to look and it was clean and everything ran like it should, so I took it. I figured that parting out the dust collector I’d be looking at $500 fo...

Drum Sander speed control repair #2: PTL! It works!

03-11-2016 03:58 AM by lightweightladylefty | 3 comments »

I can’t express how thankful I am for all the help in getting my sander’s conveyor running again. Living in the middle of nowhere, I was unable to find a vendor for the bridge rectifier within an hour of here so I ordered one (actually two) from China for $.99 plus $1.98 shipping. We received them yesterday. My husband soldered one on the circuit board this morning; we reinstalled the speed control; and it runs like new. We’re both do-it-yourselfers who will try anyt...

Drum Sander speed control repair #1: I need help to identify a component on speed control circuit board

02-28-2016 03:20 AM by lightweightladylefty | 15 comments »

My drum sander's conveyor recently quit. We were able (with help) to narrow down the problem to a component on the speed control. My husband said he is willing to attempt to solder on a new component (a new circuit board is over $240) but after considerable web searching, I have been unable to find one. It might help if I knew what it was called so I could more easily narrow the search. Here’s a photo. Can anyone tell me what the square, gray component on the lower left of the ci...

The progression of my workshop #1: The Woodmaster 718 - A Story About Craigslist

01-06-2016 11:57 PM by WmWalkerCo | 3 comments »

I made a short film documenting how I found and purchased a Woodmaster 718, UFO DC-101 dust collector, and overhead air filtration for $500. Craigslist can be a really wonderful tool for building your workshop on a budget. You just have to be patient but then be ready to jump on something if it comes up. Watch the story here: The Woodmaster 718 - A Story About Craigslist

But basically I made it for the joy of making it. So material are MDF.First I cut a base and top that fits my drill press table.Think now I would have made it a little bigger if...
