Merrill77 – congratulation on the bid, I was the other guy bidding against you on e-bay. Was only interested in the attachments, so I didn t want to go beyond $350.

Ironic. I didn’t have much interest in the attachments :) Probably would have paid the same without them.

One thing that s odd, is the Power Station, the drive has a slice down the middle of the shaft.

I m hooking up the jointer (its a beast) and I noticed that the fitting that goes over the power shaft (metal coupling), doesn t screw on, rather floats on the threaded shaft and there is a break pin that slides though the slice down the power shaft for the power transfer.

Is yours the same ? I m guessing this is for safety purposes or am I missing something ?

I’m guessing that power take-off design is some sort of standard. But I’d say that, along with the nylon connector, this allows a connection where the two shafts are not perfectly aligned…or where one end or the other might move a little in use. Just guessing, though.
