  1. Man, I am following this thread because I got the Mast-R-Lift a few months ago. I put one of my PC 890 motors in it and love it. I was thinking about upgrading to a 3 1/2 hp motor, but prices are ridiculous ($5-600, when you can find one) for the major brands. I'll probably just keep my PC in there until I hit the lotto or my inheritance comes in. Sure would have liked that Jessem PowRTek setup.
  2. I've had multiple sanders for a long time to make a job I hate go a little easier. I have my Ridgid OS on one side of a flip cart and a 1x30, 4x36 & 12" sanders on the other. My little 1x30 is used almost as much as my Ridgid OS. I use it for smaller pieces and also bought some stuff from Pro Sharpening that are great for touching up knives.
  3. I like his explanations and tips. I've struggled with spraying, so I've bookmarked his channel to go back through closer. Thanks for the link. - Chris
  4. I don't think Harbor Freight sold it for that much brand new.
  5. Years ago I bought a plastic rim that attaches to gallon cans at Home Depot that performs the same function.
  6. I bought the Performax 10/20 years ago (well before Jet bought them out). Like Chestnut, I don't use it very often, but it's one of those things that you'll figure out ways to use it. Works great for parallel surfaces that you can't or don't want to run through the planer. I also use it to do a good final sanding on things by putting a 220 belt in it. I have mine on one side of a flip-top table, so it's out of the way when I'm not using it.
  7. Are you using a blade stabilizer? That will reduce the cut height.
  8. Or you could just go with it. Since it's not large enough to be a river, call it a trickle table.
  9. I have the shinto and love it as well, but I want to see pics of your copters!
  10. I've built several of these and the frame is very easy. I just made a "shadow box" 3" deep with a groove toward the outside edge for the glass and a rabbet around the back edge to accept the removable back. Luckily, the client mounted the jerseys, so I didn't have to figure out that part.
  11. Sorry to come to the party late, but where are you going to set the grinder when you lift it out of the bottom to use it? Somewhere I've seen a temporary platform that bolts onto the bedrails (similar to the tail stock) and extends past the end. Mostly used for extra space to lay your tools, but don't see why the grinder couldn't stay there temporarily while you're turning. Hope I'm explaining it well enough to get the idea across.
  12. Not that I would ever be able to do something like this, but I'm following as well. Love to see the process to create something like this and am definitely stealing some of the jig ideas.
  13. You could always consider it a gauge to find that angle again.
  14. I have an old Delta benchtop that I built extension wings for some time ago from an old ShopNotes mag. Each wing is 12" long, so the total length is 54" now. Handles anything that I have thrown at it with no problems.
  15. That is a great price. Too bad they're out of the 1/4" right now. Did you glue them in? With some of these inexpensive ones that I've looked at, the bit is hard to get in and out.
