    To replace Drill press motor or not

    I guess just being lazy. Removing the pully and motor would not be difficult it's dealing with taking apart the switch to disconnect the cord and running it through all the holes grommets. Maybe I'll just splice it in cutting the old motor wire. I would have no issue making that connection...

    Measuring for even spaces:

    Thanks for all the input all. I know there is a ..it ton of ways to figure out centering or dividing stuff but I always like the math behind how things get done. I prefer to use a pencil and paper as I think of my next project and not use any type of computer-aided drawing tool for my next...

    To replace Drill press motor or not

    I recently was using my drill press when the motor started to make a scraping sound. I continue with my drilling with no issues other than the annoying sound. I contacted the manufacturer about the issue and directed them to a video I posted of the noise. Within five business days of...

    Drum Sander similar to planer question.

    I started doing some research on open-end drum sanders and wondering if drum sanders are similar to a planer. Meaning a planer reduces thickness but does not flatten. Are drum sanders similar to planers or do they actual flatten surfaces while reducing thickness. Kurt

    Deviation of cut on table saw

    Added a feather board and used a jointer to true up the edge the best I could. This did help to reduce the deviation. My jointer technique still needs some work as there was some flex in the board when I placed on the wing of the table saw. Maybe I did not run it through the jointer enough...

    The fence is a SS Pro T-glide and if I push hard enough I can move the back of the fence a bit maybe one or two marks on the dial gauge. The front won't budge once locked in. The board is not jointed.

    Deviation of cut on table saw

    Yes, I noticed it before and measured my blade which was about 3 marks out at the back from the same tooth I used to measure when I tried to adjust the blade again. I have not re-adjusted my fence after this last attempt to get the blade to zero. My fence veers away at the back by 6 marks. I...

    Deviation of cut on table saw

    That is exactly what I did. Set my dial gauge to 0 on the tooth. Rotate blade back and measure the same tooth. The smallest value was between the 0 and 1 marks on the dial gauge. Just for its and giggles I did the same measurement but using different teeth. Out of the four or five...

    Deviation of cut on table saw

    With my current ability and depending on which tooth of the blade I measure from, the back of the blade is in between the 0 and 1 marks on my dial gauge. The furthest I measured was between the 1 and 2 marks on the dial gauge using the same blade. The back of the blade is moving away from the...

    Belt Sander recommendations

    Yes, I found using a belt sander does indeed remove a lot of wood, especially if using a coarse grit. I also noticed using the same grit in an orbit sander does not remove as much wood as a belt sander. I had a PC orbit sander for 15 plus years that finally burnt out. Purchase a Dewalt...
