  1. The answer appears to be, YES, if you replace the impeller and want to risk overwhelming the motor in the future. But hey, modify it to something like this, then in the future all you would have to replace if the motor fails is the motor or blower\impeller unit. This guy used the RIKON 12" impeller from one of their units. Its mentioned in the video
  2. I have a Delta T2 and I love It ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I'll have to look at the alternatives Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I have a gripper I'm actually going to buy a second one with the full accessory kit Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. OUCH !! My dad is a diabetic so his extremities do not heal nearly as fast as they used to, his warehouse job has 3 or 4 of his 10 fingers in that situation Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk PINCHES suck. They make me jump up and down and curse at the pain At least with bruising I feel like less of a wimp I show my wife a tiny blood blister from a pinch and she'll tell me to suck it up haha But seriously, folding tables or items with pins (ratchet straps) have gotten me good a couple times in life Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I used to wear steel toe boots One year I worked out in the rain and they got drenched, I kept working and hung the boots in the bathroom upside down to dry over our towel bar WELLLL... let's just say they began to smell horribly mildewy and I never checked on them After cleaning the house up and determining my big boots were the cause of the smell My wife threw them out and told me NO MORE BIG BOOTS they make you're feet stink She didn't care to listen to how they got that way. It was the "Boot Smell Incident of 2013" She saw my bruise and has since agreed it's time for a pair, but not to let that happen again Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yea I can see that We shall see how often I use mine Bought it for 80$ in better condition than most similar ones on CL Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Grizzly had theirs (identical I believe) on sale for 29.99 this week Got em in 2 days Here's how I'm using mine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. This last weekend I had the very simple displeasure of dropping a 8' piece of rough 3x3 mahogany on my foot Guess what? It was only about 8-10 inches off the ground and dropped onto my foot MAN did it hurt I had hiking style shoes on. Suede/canvas shoes, not thin or anything 2 days later the bruising I was feeling finally became visible What injuries have you had in the shop? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hey if someone wants to get me some Narex Chisels I'll do a side by side ! Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I just purchased a set of Wood River Chisels. I had them sharpen them for me since it was cheap. I suspect they should be a decent set of chisels (6 of them) for about 100$ with shipping Anybody have experience with these chisels?
  10. I got this metal working lathe with very light surface rust getting mounted and all the sudden it dawns on me, do I even need the counter shaft and pulley system with this thing? It seems like a 1750RPM motor reduced from a 1.5" pulley to a 5" pulley would slow this thing down plenty I just don't see the point if I'm using a link belt and have a way of properly tensioning the motor drive Here's some photos I took, counter shaft not pictured Any advise or reason to leave the countershaft by design? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I should say, I WILL be using this for wood turning and will have a tool rest mounted Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have the Milwaukee kit with both bases and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT It's 2-1/4" HP, and so comfortable to use I also love it in my router table with the fixed base microadjust as a router lift Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Yea, it's just braced enough not to fall in. That was before I had developed the leveling method. Even now I just ordered a 5/16" tap so I can thread the rods upward to keep the leveling adjustable in all 4 corners I also wanted to create something better to pinch the top in a square position and shift it back and forth other than the composite shims Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. That's a great idea ! I usually don't use vertical feather boards but I have a featherboard that rides in the miter slots usually I'll use it without it for now and if I have to figure out the rear clamp situation later I will Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I did notice a tiny bit of lift when I initially clamp down but it goes right back I couldn't use downward clamping force off the fence for sure without something back there I wanted a vega originally They just were oversold and overpriced when I was purchasing a fence originally Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yea the T2 just has a little clip that barley grabs the fence as the front settles the clamping mechanism doesn't actually move anything on the rear fence It glides rather smoothly, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something on these biesmeyer fences Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Just like the heading says I've been piecing together this interesting deal here. I'm not done yet It's a Dewalt 7480 saw mounted inside of a Solid Core Door 1-3/4" thick. I leveled it with a machinists straight edge and using some threaded rod. To wedge the thing square I used composite Door/jam shims (might have another idea for future adjustability) The fence is a Delta T2 30" fence The door is 32" deep and I do not want to cut off any width if I can help it. The rear rail is not currently mounted and the fence is just gliding across the table without the UMHW piece and the hook/clip that grabs the rear rail Do T-square style fences only rely on the rear rail for areas of the saw without a table? Would I be fine working without it? I tested to make sure the gap under the fence is very small and I can cut 1/8" plywood without it slipping under the fence whatsoever Any help would be great Thanks !

  17. I have an ceiling mounted overhead dust filtration unit that can pickup anything that makes it passed the 1 micron bag. I also wear a respirator during just about any extended cutting operations. I suspect I am pretty safe in this regard
  18. I looked it up and you are correct. BUT...... Im not going to pay the extra expense for that. Ill just keep water off my floor lol
  19. If youre looking for darker finished, I have used Polyshades before. They definitely softent he woodgrain look though because its more like tinting than a penetrating stain
  20. That makes more sense. I believe someone did that in my families old house to put a plug on the back porch. Garage power is no different than the rest of the house. Even outdoor sheds often have power professionally ran to them buy tying in a breaker, running and burying conduit and running up to a light, or a plug or two. Of course, once you run power to a shed or put it on a foundation, the city\county often will try to tax it as part of the house sq footage jerks lol
  21. Well I am not terrible concerned with all dust being captures, just mostly the chips. The dust collector itself has a 1 micron bag, so I anything that makes it passed the chip separator will go to the main dust collector. Its mostly for heavier planer\jointer chips
  22. Im almost positive thats not true. At least in California. Ive been in new and old houses here and none of them are GFCI. The only rule is if its within 10ft of a water source i believe.
  23. My rigid shopvac worked great for all of these things in my garage individually. The Static pressure was higher, but the CFM was rated at 150 for the vac, and limited to that by the dust deputy. The suction on this shopsmith when used directly with a hose is very different than a shopvac. I can tell just by testing it that it moves dust differently with a 2.5 inch hose. I know from researching it that HP is not everything, and neither are impeller diameter or CFM respectively. Its a combination of too many factors entirely lol Perhaps keeping the dust collection mobile is the most practical. But how about presorting chip collection with this unit?
  24. I recently picked up a Shopsmith DC3300 Dust Collector (new generation) with the large 1-micron dust hood on a steal. I tried my dust deputy (smaller clear one for shop vacs) and the suction drops too significantly because the cyclone unit is limited to 100-150cfm. I want to build a chip collector, and already have a 30 gallon blue rigid plastic barrel with a snap-ring style lid that is nicely sealed. The existing hole where i had the dust deputy is in the center, and already around 3-3.5 inches or so. Under the 3 way junction on the shopsmith, where the 3-2.5" ports meet, is a hole around 4.5" directly in front of the impeller. I was thinking about removing it and installing a very short piece of 4" hose on a flange, meeting with the center of the blue barrel to maximize air movement between the barrel and the chip collector. My existing shop vac ducting is 2" and I wonder if installing a piece of 2" elbow on a 90 degree angle to the side of the barrel will help create that cyclone effect Ive seen on barrels that use the dust right-style system. The CFM on the Shopsmith is 330. All of my tools use 2.5" ports on them (with the exception of the 4" on the lunchbox planer, and 1.25" on the miter saw port) Do I ditch the ducting and make the chip collector and Shopsmith DC a single unit that gets attaches to each station, each time? I would assume this dust collector must work better for woodworking than my rigid shop vac system. Before I get too far with this thread, I have to ask that people refrain from the unhelpful 'sell it and buy something better' comments if you feel the urge. I saw a few of those in other threads i visited before reaching out here. Thoughts opinions?
  25. How did you manage that? Ripping on one? What type of Drum Sander are you using? Jet?
