    Jessem Mast-R-Lift 2?

    I need to do the same thing. I've been avoiding buying a lift because it will mean a new router, and to me, it's not a "sexy" purchase since I only really use the RT for edge profiles and pattern routing. Maybe it'll be my next "big" buy. Or maybe Roubo hardware will be. It never ends.

    Bandsaw setup video

    I haven't got in to it on here, mostly because I haven't dedicated enough time to work through my problems, but I'm not digging the fence on my Rikon so far either.

    Bandsaw setup video

    To be fair my guild's discussion forum is very inactive. Nothing more than a handful of posts saying it was good advice, etc. Seven responses in like four days. It's the most active thread I've ever seen on that forum On rare occasion I'll put a miter gauge on the bandsaw for a quick cut, but never for accuracy. I'm not sure what jigs would be essential on the bandsaw using the miter slot, but I know I (still) under-use the bandsaw and don't really scratch the surface of it's potential.

    Bandsaw setup video

    My local guild just brought this FWW video up for discussion. It seems like an obvious piece to the bandsaw puzzle that I can't ever remember being discussed in other bandsaw setup techniques. He kind of takes a tablesaw setup approach to the bandsaw to eliminate drift. *Will delete if it's already been discussed here and I missed it*

    It was not recorded, he just talked about it in a safety related video.

    Marc's mishap was done with straight knives, I bet helical head and backing up the cut made a big difference. My luck, had I tried this I still would have screwed it up tho.

    Electrical talk for the Hammer

    ^ Exactly why I'm not going to attach the power myself I'm not afraid to do things I don't know much about by myself, except electricity, lol. Gotta draw the line at electricity.

    Holy smokes...jointing end grain, and on a huge piece like that? All I can say is I'm glad it worked!

    That makes sense.

    Electrical talk for the Hammer

    I'm really not worried about SJOOW vs SOOW, aren't they just codes for environmental resistance? Oil/water resistance, stuff like that? Not an issue in this application as far as I can see. What confuses me is the number of conductors in the wire. It seems that 12/3 romex has four conductive wires, while 12/3 so has three(?) For the extension cord I know I need three conductors, so I wasn't entirely confident I didn't need 12/2 so.

    Electrical talk for the Hammer

    I know I bought cable by the foot to replace the power cord for my tablesaw at Home Depot. They were about ready to kick me out of the store because I used their measuring thingy to measure it and cut it myself, they weren't happy about that. The setup is different now though and I didn't find anything but huge spools of 12/3 sjoow/soow. Maybe I can sneak to a Lowes tomorrow to see if they have any, and go back to HD to replace that outlet. Unless anyone says otherwise I'm pretty confident I have the other components I need.

    Electrical talk for the Hammer

    I have no idea why I got it in my head that I would have to do a female plug on the machine and male/male on the extension cord. It makes zero sense that it would have to be that way. Definitely scratch that and go with the traditional configuration. As far as additional tools that may also be 220V...it's just not likely to happen. If anything, it'll be a dust collector that will need to be on a dedicated circuit anyway. I'm not moving off my bandsaw that I just got last year and I'm content with my tablesaw.

    Electrical talk for the Hammer

    Here we go. Electrical talk is like a different language to me. Please use small words, crayons, pictures. I have it in my head that I will run wire to the sub panel to have it ready for someone to help me connect it to the breaker. I have ZERO intentions of powering this thing up without someone who knows what the hell they're doing. I went today to start buying crap to put this together. I bought everything except wire, will get to that in a minute. Can you guys look through this junk and make sure I am at least close? The debate on 20A and 30A circuits for this machine is well documented with no real winner as far as I can tell. People say that Felder themselves give varying answers, but most at Felder say 20A is appropriate. This is my one and only 220V tool in my shop. People on Facebook suggest going 30A (or 20A with 10/2 wire) in case I add more tools later that require more power to save me from running another wire. The thing is, running wire is the easiest part for me. I have exposed rafters and an exposed sub panel. I'm not concerned with this. I have a lot of 12/2 romex cable on hand, left over from when I ran all of my outlets in the shop. If possible, I'd like to use this. If it's not appropriate, I'll buy new cable no problem. Attached is a photo of the breaker I bought. Look right? Dual pole, 20A? After I got home I realized the outlet I bought is 30A. That must be exchanged for a 20A, right? As some of you know the Hammer comes with a short wire. They say the warranty will be voided if you open the electrical box up, so the manual says to construct an extension cord. Dumb, but whatever. The cord from the Hammer has two black and one yellow wire. I bought a 20A female locking connector and two male plugs. I was going to buy 12/3 sjoow cable for the extension cord at Home Depot but couldn't find it sold by the foot. Maybe order it from this place? Is 12/3 sjoow appropriate for the extension cord?

    New jointer season? I think so.

    Nope. Electricity isn't ran yet Probably another week away.
