    What to do with a Grand Prize that I cannot use.

    I am absolutely thrilled that my ticket number was drawn for the raffle grand prize, the Rikon 15" helical head planer. What an awesome machine, donated by our awesome sponsor Klingspor. Problem (for me) is, I already have a 20" Grizzly planer with helical head. Don't need or have room for 2...

    Another tool upgrade :-)

    This actually happened a while back. I took advantage of Klingspors black Friday sale to upgrade my Rikon 10-305 to the new Rikon 10-306. The 10-306 has a few new features. Motor is stepped up from 1/3hp to 1/2hp. It also has 2 cutting speeds vs one on the 10-305. Toolless blade guides...

    How do I remove this bearing? (solved)

    Trying to replace the bearings on my planer cutter head. I was able to remove the one on the pulley end of the cutter head using a 3 jaw gear puller. The bearing on the other end is pressed into a recess in the gearbox case. The cutter head shaft goes through the case and seats into the...

    After spending another 3 hour session cleaning the filter on my Oneida DC, I decided to bite the bullet and eliminate the filter by venting outside. Got the whole thing done, except, I don't know the correct/best way to finish and/or seal where the vent hood mounts to the outside wall. The 8"...

    Picked up a Sargent 1080. Looking for cutters.

    Picked up this Sargent 1080 combination plane recently. It is in excellent condition and appears to have seen very little use. Unfortunately, it only came with a single cutter, which was/is installed in the plane. So, the hunt for a set of cutters has started. If anyone has a lead on a set...
