    BS blade tracking hinge

    After removing the riser from my Delta 14" BS I found a problem with the tracking hinge. It is hitting the edge of the hole where the wheel shaft comes through the rear guard. There are two bolts which screw into the upper frame. I removed the two bolts and placed two washers so they were on the...

    BS blade tracking

    What would cause a BS blade to wonder (best word I can think of)? I noticed the blade was not tracking where I had set it. I tweaked it a little and watched it track for a minute or so and all of a sudden it ran all the way to the back of the wheel. I adjusted the tracking arm until it was...

    shop vac dust separator reviews

    I have watched way to many videos about shop vac dust separators. The ones which they claim catch all the dust which clog the vac filters and the dust which is harmful to your lungs. One guy uses flour in his tests. Flour is not sawdust. This test is so dumb I can not even figure out what he is...

    Remote control

    I want to add remote control to my 1.5hp, 120v dust collector. The DC is a Delta 50-850. Right now I am going to connect to my table saw and BS. I do all planning outside. Decided to skip hours of research when we have the best info source right here on NCWW. OK, I am tired of doing research on...

    Delta 50-850 dust collector

    I want to change the top bag on my dust collector to a canister type. I know the difference between a HEPA type filter and a true HEPA filter. One of the biggest differences is price. Unfortunately a lot of companies are selling HEPA type filters as true HEPA filters at the much higher price...

    limits of a 14" BS

    I am starting to wonder if I am expecting to much from my Delta 14" BS. Bought it around 1994. I have had less trouble building a complete bedroom furniture set than what I am doing now. I am laminating cherry boards to a rough size of 8" X 12". I am making the larger Ventura BS boxes. I have...

    Carter Stabilizer bearing

    I have changed every bearing on my Delta 14" BS except the Carter bearing. Need to reuse the housing so I do not want to damage it. Need some help on removing this bearing. Thought about clamping two boards just wide enough apart to drive the bearing out. Very little experience with bearings so...

    carter stablizer bearing

    I have looked for a replacement bearing and not had any luck. I do not know if you can buy just the bearing or the bearing and the part it mounts. I can not read anything on the bearing and I am waiting on taking the nut off until I know more. Anyone ever try to buy this. Called Carter...

    linked belts

    Follow up to earlier post. If you have arthritis in your hands find someone to help. 13 years as a baseball catcher was not good for my hands. I managed to do it but it was not fun. Use needle nosed plyers to start the tab through and use regular plyers to pull the tab through. It did help...

    wood planner- yikes

    I have used a 13 inch Delta planner for over 30 years. Yesterday I was planning some 4"wide cherry when things went south. A loud noise so I cut the planner off. Raised the cutter head and pulled out the wood. A large chunk was missing. The grain is a little squirrelly, not the best cherry. I...

    gluing cutting boards

    In another thread someone said absolutely do no use Titebond 1. I used original titebond to make several cutting boards about 25 years ago. There have been no problems. What was used before Titebond 111 came along.

    Breadboard ends

    In the past I have used a router to cut across the grain on the table top, protecting the end from tear out several different ways. I started off cutting the groves in the end pieces using the table saw and slowly moving the fence until I reached what I wanted. I bought a Frued dail a width dado...
