    I need to replace a 300mfd capacitor for my jointer motor. Many of the capacitors I found online are rated in the 274-325mfd range. This is on a jet jointer, which isn't sensitive electronic stuff by any stretch. Will that small a difference either way cause harm to the motor or a failure for it...
  2. Band saw repair

    So a couple of weeks back I was working on something small on the band saw. The piece slipped and the blade caght, resulting in the shattering of the table insert. After much cursing I decided to do what any of us would do: waste tons of time making something I could order for 5 bucks! So...
  3. Christmas Countdown/Pallet Christmas Tree

    My wife found plans to make flannel characters/symbols that tell the history/story behind Christmas to our daughter, but she needed a way to display them. We chose the design after looking around the internet and made a tree from pallets, with the tree made of red oak and the base from pine...

    Hello all. This is my first post on Lumberjocks, so bare with me. I am in the market for a thickness planer and just had a few questions. First off, I am a hobbyist woodworker and just started about 2 years ago. I do a lot of rustic furniture for my home, but am starting to become more...
  5. Hand Tools
    I'm trying to restore a type 20 Stanley No.5 jack plane that I've had lying around for a while to good working condition. Everything seems to be in fairly decent shape except for one crucial component: the y-adjustment lever, AKA the "yoke", which of course in the type 20's is a cheesy assembly...

    My chop saw started making the DeWalt death squeal, so I pulled it apart to replace the bearings just like this video: Problem is, replacing both end bearings doesn't fix it for me. Now, I admit, I was using a 6202-Z that I happened to have on hand rather than the original 6202-LU. And...
  7. Finishing
    I was using my saw and after cut was made I released trigger but saw kept running. Took apart handle trigger housing to see if anything was wrong cleaned everything with air and small dry paint brush. Does anyone know what could be the cause of this? Had this miter saw since I was about 15 I'm...

    Cleaning, finishing the band saw stand, carpentry, and making pestles I took a look at my project lists this morning, like I do every Monday, and picked out a something that had been waiting a while. It was a carpenter project, custom exterior stair rails. I went out to my shop to take a...

    ONEWAY Live Center Repair I damaged my ONEWAY live center a few weeks back and finally got around you repairing it this morning! I placed a split pin in the "locking hole" and then installed the live center in the headstock. A few minutes of turning and filling and I'm back in business. For...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm a somewhat novice lumberjock, but am interested in learning. I have responsibility over a set of vintage (50s/60s) powertools that have been sitting idle in a backyard shop for about 20 years. They've been kept dry, though in hot temperatures, and I've noticed dry rot in some plastic and...
