Penn State 2HP blower replacing my HF blower - 14 replies

So I was fortunate enough to have my wife offer for me to purchase the Penn State 2hp blower. I was getting 4400 FPM with the harbor freight, Super dust deputy, and the Wynn filter. Now I am getting 6600 FPM by just replacing the blower. Not sure of the CFM calculation but I am pretty sure that is a big difference. The meter I was using only...

Rikon impeller - 3 replies

I bought this to replace the one in my harbor freight unit. Do to an outstanding wife I no longer need it. I will just ask for what the cost is from Rikon unless you are local to the Cincinnati area where we can meet. I paid $117.98 If you pay shipping I will box it up and only charge the $99 Rikon cost.

Wixey digital readout on Vega Pro - 0 replies

Has anyone installed it on the Vega? I am in the process of installing it and I was looking at the Wixey site and it shows the readout bolted to the fence and the micro adjust section. I was thinking about just attaching it to the micro adjust section so it could still be used. Any thoughts?

Planer? Upgrade or change to helical head - 14 replies

I have the Ridgid R4331 planer. Other than have to change the blades and the table due to a nail or something in a piece of wood (I never did find what caused it) I haven’t had many problems with it. I was in Rockler the other day and saw that they have the Dewalt 735X with a free Dewalt stand. I was getting ready to buy it but decided...

Grizzly Jointer backordered - 17 replies

So I was fortunate enough for the wife to agree for me to buy the Grizzly G0490X 8” with spiral cutting head. Unfortunately it was on backorder till mid August but yesterday I called and it has been pushed back till mid September. The $1350 shipped is the top of my budget so there isn’t really anything else out there in that range...

Grizzly G0771Z (G0770) Fence and rails - 1 reply

I just bought this saw but already had the Vega system so I do not need the stock fence and rails that came with it. I never installed it just opened the box for pictures and to inspect the rails. They say it is an upgrade to the G0770 fence. There is no hardware in the box it was all included with the saw so I will send all the bolts that ar...

New Grizzly G0771Z - 16 replies

I will be receiving it on Thursday and have a couple of questions. I will not be installing the stock fence since I ordered a Vega Pro 40 for my Ridgid r4512 but decided I wanted (and was given permission) to upgrade. I will also be installing the cast iron router extension I had on my Ridgid. Does anyone see an issue with the above plans...

HF Dust Collector + Super Dust Deputy and Wynn filter - 1 reply

Yes another HF DC thread. I originally built a Thien separator when I first got my HF dc and it was working ok just not a lot of suck. I knew when I bought it that I would need to upgrade the bag to a filter but was short on cash. Once I was able to, I bought the new Wynn 222 series 35BA222NANO. Before I installed it I had used my original...
