    Hi all, I am new to LJ and I am amazed at the collective wealth of knowledge and experience here. I have been woodworking for just over a year and I am in the market for a good dovetail jig. Money is an issue, otherwise I would jump straight to the Leigh, so I am considering the Porter Cable...

    I just bought a Porter Cable 12 1/2" thickness planer from Lowes but cant seem to find them anywhere else to get some information on it. The Lowes website doesnt even list having them, however they do sell the replacement blades. Has anyone ever seen one or heard a review on one of these? I was...

    Big bummer - I let the router and plunge base fall from my workbench onto the floor. Now the plunge base has a little play (side to side) in it when I release the thumb switch to plunge. I don't think it had that play before. So I'm wondering - can I get a new plunge base - without play - or...

    I am thinking about buying a 10" Porter Cable Stationary Table Saw so I can have some fun with a new toy on Easter Sunday. Lowes has one for $599. It looks great with some nice features. Does anyone have positives or negatives to share about Porter Cable or their table saws? Thanks Don

    Ok…. it's been a really long time since I've been on LumberJocks. I can't believe how long it's been. I was having some issues with my Router and my Kreg router table. From the day I brought them home I've had the same problem. The screws that attach the router sit proud of the table. So…...

    I burnt out the motor on my Porter cable bandsaw, called PC service in the US and they are shipping me a replacement motor under warranty, simple and easy… Talked to Mary Jane who was of great help to many of us who wanted to add a riser block to these saws.

    I've got a 16 ga. Porter Cable finish nailer that went belly up yesterday. The nail striker won't retract. It has been a very reliable nailer for years so this bums me out in the middle of a commissioned project. I believe it was a model FN250A and I've got thousands of nails for it of different...

    I have 2 larger floor machines that I need to sell off. One is a Delta table saw. The other is a floor model Porter Cable Drill Press. The Table saw is about 6 months old, the drill press 2 months. I need to sell off before winter as it looks like I may be moving in the Spring. The Saw was...

    I bought it a couple of years ago. It worked fine for a while. Recently it's started misbehaving. Raising the blade is difficult. When cranking it up, it'll go fine for a couple revolutions of the handle, then be difficult to turn the crank. After a few revolutions of the handle, it'll get...

    I have a Porter Cable Jobsite table saw…everything was fine, then it wasn't ugh I cant get the blade raise! I was working on a zero clearance insert. Used the saw to make a few cuts, lowered the blade then came back to see if I had a fit and blade would not move! *SCREAMS PLEASE HELP! UPDATE**...

    Looking for a good 6" jointer for myself. Some facts/controls about the situation: 1) Benchtop unit required - small shop (garage) where I need to be able to put tools away 2) 6" is the target - The only benchtop unit greater than 6" I find is the Jet 8 jointer/planer combo and I'm not keen on...

    Hi everyone, If someone could provide some of their knowledge then I would be very grateful. Grizzly wasn't able to help, unfortunately, because their parts are in a warehouse and the agent wasn't able to measure them. I have a porter cable 14" band saw with a 1.5 HP motor that is missing the...

    LJs, I'm looking to buy a dead or dying Porter Cable 7518 (router base model #75361) so I can permanently mount a base on my router table and not have to remove the one on my horizontal router table. Does anyone have one of these around that is just taking up space and you would consider...

    I have the opportunity to buy this pair of Porter Cable brad and finish nailers for $50. Is this a good deal? (assuming they work) My story: I'm new to woodworking (literally just a couple weeks in). I've read a couple of books and now am starting to purchase tools. I've heard to compile tools...

    I want to build a few small keepsake boxes and music boxes with decorative joinery. I doubt I'll ever build a bunch of drawers or what have you. I was looking at the Porter Cable jigs vs. trying to learn how to do them by hand. I'd also like to do box joints as well, and I've built a few cheap...

    I have a five year old Porter Cable pancake compressor, the red bellied 2002 model that I got from the Depot. About a month ago the safety valve started popping at about 180 psi. My workaround was to charge it to 150, do what I had to do, and finish my work. A little online research told me...
