Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Hello everyone,

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have been busy viewing all the tremendous, beautiful work on the LJ pages….. Can’t get enough. It’s amazing how many talented woodworkers are out there. I am thoroughly enjoying the site. I am working on a few projects and look forward to posting them for review when complete.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

I have an older Powermatic Model 66 table saw. It has sat unused for about 6 years. I have been refurbing the saw for the last few weeks.
It is a 2 hp 3 ph running thru a phase converter from my single phase power. When started it runs fine for the first few minutes. Then the reset (overheat?) button in the starter box trips and shuts the saw off. There are two small levers in the lower part of the box labeled Automatic – Manual. I note that this area (not the motor) gets too hot to touch.
I am fairly ignorant of the functions of the starter box.
Is anyone on LJ ’s familiar with this setup? Any advice on what the problem might be?
Thank you for the attention.
