  1. I get my sanding supplies from Industrial Abrasives, https://www.industrialabrasives.com/sanding-sleeves-replacement-abrasive-spindle-sleeves-c-77_99.html?zenid=057v44k6hebdjeiqoooh8sjhf0
  2. I purchased one of those a while back when they first came out, mine doesn't have the side shelf. I've been very happy with it so far with not a single thing to complain about. They are very well built.
  3. +1 I have a hose reel in my shop and also one in my garage. Replaced both over time with the Flexzilla reel and hose unit and like them better than the old rubber hose ones.
  4. In the past I've had some of those pads just fall apart from use. A phone call to the company was all it took to get some FREE replacements sent my way.
  5. I don't normally put very much stock in Amazon rating however the ratings on this drill press seem to suggest it's probably very ordinary and average at best. See for yourself; https://www.amazon.com/JET-JDP-17MF-354169-Drill-Press/dp/B00004T9L0/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=jet+354169&qid=1573498060&sr=8-1
  6. As mentioned, there many books out there that are worth buying. One that I've found helpful is New Woodworker Handbook by Tom Hintz, https://www.amazon.com/New-Woodworker-Handbook-Spending-Working/dp/1565232976/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=tom+hintz&qid=1570302356&sr=8-2
  7. I own the Baileigh TS-1040P-50 Cabinet Saw. I purchased it in May of 2018 and have nothing but positive things to say about it. The fit and finish are top shelf along with the performance. Assembly was very straight forward and easily accomplished by myself. The only help I needed was getting the crate into my shop and positioning the saw on the mobile base I had purchased for the saw. Baileigh does have a warehouse/showroom about 100 miles from my home so I was able to actually see and put my hands on their products before buying. Everything I looked at was built solidly and in my estimation with high quality materials.
  8. I've had very good luck with these bags; https://woodworker.com/14-diameter-x-31-plastic-dust-bag-mssu-893-247.asp
  9. Powermatic makes excellent table saws as does SawStop and Delta, and quite a few others companies. Companies such as Jet, Grizzly, Baileigh, Laguna, Shop Fox all offer cabinet saws with more competitive pricing structures. Pretty much all of the cabinet saws out there will provide a hobbyist user with excellent results.
  10. I put this mobile base under my table saw and have been extremely satisfied with it, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0000DD6B9/ref=sxts_kp_bs_tr_1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=8778bc68-27e7-403f-8460-de48b6e788fb&pd_rd_wg=dHHXz&pf_rd_r=JEP06TX7NRRFGBF6CYS1&pf_rd_s=desktop-sx-top-slot&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_i=B0000DD6B9&pd_rd_w=FHGJi&pf_rd_i=shop+fox+mobile+base&pd_rd_r=119f6f95-3b39-422c-ba78-c361c939754b&ie=UTF8&qid=1543186608&sr=1 When set to be stationary it's solid as a rock and the base itself is very heavy duty.
  11. I have this one and it works very well for me, https://www.amazon.com/Cen-Tec-Systems-Premium-Vacuum-Extension/dp/B076N1CR42/ref=sr_1_3?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1542238543&sr=1-3&keywords=cen+tec&refinements=p_72%3A1248915011%2Cp_36%3A1253524011 I like the fact that its 30' long which lets me use it for both sanding and shop cleanup.
  12. I think a phone call to Grizzly, 800-523-4777, would get you an answer right away. I doubt if there were to many models of 18" bandsaws in the Z Series.
  13. I use a 1/2" blade on my Rikon 10-325. I find it difficult enough to tension the 5/8" blade that came with my saw and I figured a 3/4" would be a real challenge. For the resawing I do the 1/2" works fine for my needs.
