  3. Improved "OFF" switch for Grizz Saw

    I really like the Grizzly 1023 table saw that I have had for several years. However, I never have been comfortable with the location and size of the "OFF" button, so a while back I decided to make an addition to the saw to improve the operational safety. As you can see in the picture, there...

    With all the great saws showing up on Craig's List at dirt cheap prices I am temped, but…….. It does everything I have ever wanted it to do. I am not going to be making furniture or cabinets except for maybe an occasional project just to try it. The biggest issue is the tune up. My old...

    Hey all, first post here. I'm in a jam and need some advice. I bought my first bandsaw from a guy off of OfferUp. It's a Tradesman (Craftsman's step-child) 10" three-wheel bandsaw. I was skeptical, but the guy sold it to me for $20 bucks, so how could I refuse. I've used it for several projects...

    Hey all! I'm new to the forum - thanks for taking a look at my question! I just picked up a Delta 34-670 table saw off CL. Of course, it worked great when I tried it at the guys' house, but I get it home, and now it won't turn on. My buddy and I checked/confirmed the switch and the breaker...

    (Finally) Upgrading from a Shop-Vac So for the longest time I've heard how much a Shop-vac doesnt quite cut it when it comes to larger machines, and how much quieter "real" DC machines are compared to a shop-vac, but being a weekend warrior, my budget is limited, and space was a big issue for...

    I couldn't find much help with this on the net, so when I figured it out I thought I would post this here. I needed to change the belt on the 22-580, 13" planer, so took the extra I had for a few years, and removed the covers from the machine. At the motor shaft end, there is an allen head...
