    John, those are suhweet! I really like the metal/wood combo, and I especially like the way you tapered the underside of the tops to lighten the look and add real class. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the replies, fellows. And after a warm meal and time to re-think the events, it is clear I need to check the wiring inside the receptacle. Re. the 50 AMP circuit...well the story gets a little complicated, but I'll try to keep it simple. It is a 5hp motor and the machine specs call...

    Need Conveyor Belt for Supermax 37x2

    Looking for a recommendation for a replacement conveyor belt for my SuperMax 37x2 drum sander. There are several sources on line, but the price is so variable I'm not sure which to get so as to get good quality and not get stung. Any suggestions from those of you who have faced this issue?
