    I am restoring a 1949 Delta Rockwell cabinet saw and have taken the Milwaukee Electric Bullet Motor apart, turned the commutator on Delta lathe using the cross slide rest that Delta made as an accessory for these lathes in the 1950's, and installed new bearings. Vintage Machinery states that...

    Hello, I would like some advice on rip cutting a 2×4 (4 ft. long) into two 1×4's using a table saw. I have a home-built sled with clamps to hold down the lumber and keep my hands far away from the blade. My question is-if I cut half way through and then flip the board and do the other half, is...

    Does anyone have any experience with this contractor saw? So far dealers have advised getting the upgrade fence. I am also thinking of getting the cast iron wings. My shop [and my budget] is a little too small for the cabinet model. One thing that concerns me is there is no provision for "in...

The plywood split out and left a bubble in the side of the fence which i tried to fix with glue and a couple clamps put it is still not very true. Are there any companies out there...

    I have two cabinet fronts that I want to finish into a storage unit for our kitchen. The slots on the back of the frame measure 14mm. or 0.551 in. or 35/64 in. I don't find any plywood at Lowe's that fits that dimension. Do I need to find a cabinet shop to get this odd size? Your help and/or...

    I came across an interesting article about new Delta contractor saw offerings. It looks like they may be pricing to compete with the Jet ProShop. http://www.protoolreviews.com/tools/power/corded/saws/delta-contractor-saw-preview-2014/11409/
