    Power Tool Table Polish

    Also use Johnson's on lathe and saw. My jointer gets an application of Renaissance Wax that has very fine abrasives that not only lubricates but helps clean and polish. Both provide good protection.

    Nova 1624. Opinion

    I have the exact one that is pictured. That length is needed for Shaker rockers that I've made + stools. Additionally, bowls from 2-3 inches up to 15". After 9 years, needed a replacement drive belt. Bearings still tight. Would buy Nova again if needed.

    Digital angle gage

    My Wixi gage died and looking to replace it. All the amazon ratings are about the same, between 58-79% 5 stars. The Wixi was to difficult to consistently zero and sometimes repeat angle readings would vary ~ -0.1 to 0.2 degrees. This was a common complaint with a lot of the gages reviewed...

    Easy Turning Ideas

    There are several "web sites" that show a diy type Wolverine setup. I don't recall the book title, but Ernie Conover has plans for building a similar setup. I made one out of plywood and other stuff in the shop. Instructions were from "Around the Wood" web site (basically the Wolverine setup...

    Best Pricing locations for dust collection piping/hoses

    I've has a 5 hp cyclone for about 10 years. I used 6" PVC white drainage pipe from Agri-Supply. It comes in 10 ft. lengths with one end flared to fit the next section. All the reducers to 4" at machines, wyes, and elbows were metal and came from PSI. If you want, run metal tape down the length...

    Building a steady rest

    Check Lee Valley. I bought a 1/2 doz of these wheels for $3.00 each. I forget the axle size, but they fit a standard size bolt. They were still in the last catalogue.

    lathe motor died

    My nova 1624-44 has functioned flawless for 6-7 years. Turned it off today for lunch. Later there was no response when I tried to start it. Have power to lathe. Hand spin and try to start = nothing (no hun, noise, etc.). The motor is induction 4 pole. The switch box has a 60mf cap that is not...

    Making a round base for table - many questions

    The top can be made of baltic birch plywood since is is usually 60x60 inches square. Then use same veneer on the base. Cutting a circle using a trammel attached to a router would do the job.

    Dust Collection Questions

    I haven't seen a hobby system that will collect 100% chips and dust. Use the mask. For plastic pipe check out Agri-Supply. I bought 100 ft. of 6 inch drain pipe for about $12-15 per 10 ft. length (no coupling except for wye, elbows, etc. One end accepts the end of the next 6" pipe. Price may...

    Earlier I was logged in and tried to post a response to a question. An error message stated that I did not have permission to perform that function . I don't post often but, have been able to in the past. Did I do something wrong in this effort?

    Password will not save when I log out.

    I check the box to remember me and it does not. Even MS EXPLORER does not remember me when I log on. Am I doing something wrong? (don't know why italics turned on) Warren
