Laguna PX20 Planer

03-18-2021 05:01 PM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

Has anyone seen these new PX series planers from Laguna? They have a few size offerings from a 12-1/2” benchtop planer, all the way up to a 22” beast with electronically variable feed rate. The one that caught my eye was the PX20 because it has excellent capacity (can plane timbers up to 8” thick and panels up to 20” wide) in a relatively manageable footprint. If you’re stepping up from say a 12-13” planer, the main advantage I see with the PX20 is you...

Jet table saw jwts-10jf / blade splitter missing

02-28-2020 02:09 AM by Reto | 9 comments »

I recently bought a Jet table saw jwts-10jf on craigslist, restored it – which was a lot of fun – but I miss the blade splitter. Seems difficult to find the splitter for such an older model. Does anyone have one or know where to get one ? Your help is much appreciated. Ciao, Reto

Floor space is so precious, I decide to hang my DC from the ceiling. One 1990’s, 220v, Jet DC1200, 2hp Dust Collector, a few trips to Lowe’s, and a lot of planning the Sketchup finally sees some results: Here’s the plan…..more or less: Install a 8” vent to the outside. Make and Hang Ceiling Mount. Make a box frame to hold the Blower and Motor Hang the box. Make the shelf to hold the blower and motor. Keep special attention on the blower input...

Shop Dust Collection

02-05-2017 10:26 PM by Fiddy | 2 comments »

Thought I’d share my dust collection set up since I struggled to find something that gave me what I was looking for. Part of what I’ve been working on lately has been my “must have” shop projects and the first was dust collection. I had an older Jet 650 that I bought of CL for about $125 a few years back. When I was at my old house, I would just wheel it to which ever tool I was using and absolutely hated that. Most often I just wouldn’t use it. I had a few ob...

My Shop #3: Dust Collection

12-06-2016 07:01 PM by Kent Shepherd | 2 comments »

I have owned a Jet Dust collector for some time now, and have always hated emptying the bag. Recently, one of my customers offered to swap this cyclone from a school wood shop for a product in my store. It was perfect for my needs so I jumped on the opportunity. Having several pieces for the duct work already, I did not have to buy much to get it set up and going, The worst part was finding the time! Using 5″ flex hose I rerouted the air flow to go through the cyclone. The bag only gets what...

Jet JDP-17MF drill press depth stop mod.

06-14-2016 03:49 PM by splintergroup | 5 comments »

I’ve got into the habit of trying to knock one item off of the shop “to-do” list after I complete a project. Kind of like “sharpen the chisels” or ” sort/organize the scrap wood bins”. I had just finished sweeping up when it struck me that I despised the depth stop on my drill press (Yeah, that’s right buddy! I’m a depth stop hating psychotic!). The drill press in question was purchased maybe 10+ years ago with one of those coupons that...

Jet 1642 Maintenance and Repairs (spindle bearings)

03-25-2016 04:23 PM by JimChrisawn | 2 comments »

A few years ago I purchased a used Jet 1642. It has been and is a great lathe with very little trouble until recently. I noticed I had began getting some noise that was different and I was having trouble with getting smooth surfaces. At first I just excused it as just a bad day for tool control, however it slowly kept getting to me. I began checking things on the lathe. No play in the spindle, but noise. I decided that it was a bad belt so I ordered one. When the belt arrived I began the proc...

New to the group

First of all I want to thank the many of you who responded to my issue with Jet table saw arbor nuts with advice suggestions and support. The problem was solved with help and kindness from Grizzly who ID’d the thing as M16-2LF which I ordered from Jet by spec, with no relation to the website diagram or part number. I’m really amazed by the number, variety and quality of projects I see here, and hope mine will be up to spec. Meantime, here’s a bit about me from the profile:J...

Anyone having the same problem with **[email protected]@! Jet?

04-10-2014 02:39 PM by eldercop | 10 comments »

Lost the arbor nut on my JWTS10 table saw but had no idea it might require a new saw to replace it. Ordered the replacement nut from Jet, according to part number and diagram, waited the week plus, it arrives and doesn’t fit. I came a little unglued, being work stoppage on a much wanted project. Customer service transfers me to tech support where the conversation goes like this: Me The arbor nut you sent doesn’t fit. Tech Suport Guy I’m not surprised. M Huh? TSG Yup. W...
