    Why...

    Hi Hank, This was all done with a ShopBot PRT96 CNC router using a 1/8" shank 0.050" diameter end mill at 1"/second cut rate and 0.5"/second plunge rate. Had to use a 1/4" to 1/8" collet adapter (thank you Klingspor!) ... fun to see such small fine work on such a large machine (48" x 96" x 6"...

    Why...

    Here is a peek at a part of my current project. (Sorry about the portrait layout). These are two rosette blocks for the bookcase project I'm still working on. The bottom image was engraved with a 60 degree V-Bit in air-dried poplar. It's pretty ragged, partly because I missed the fact that...

    Fence rail source?

    Lowes and Home Depot carry split rail fencing (be prepared for sticker shock). I'd also call a few fence installation companies and ask them if they'll part with a few. Regards, Rick

    CNC endmill sharpening?

    Good morning Brad, Here's an alternative: Sharpening • Bits and Bits Company Haven't tried them yet, but will probably send them a pile of dull router bits to sharpen. They also recycle carbide, so if you have broken carbide bits, they'll be happy to have them. Regards, Rick

    Free Table Saw

    Good afternoon all, Andy, the saw is still available. You can call me or send me an e-mail if you want to coordinate pickup. Berta, thanks for your offer, but I really don't want to be holding onto parts of a saw ... I'd rather it continue to be useful to someone (Like Andy's friend). Bruce...

    I have a 10" Direct Drive (2 HP!) Sears/Craftsman Model 113.226880 table saw available for anyone wanting a project, or is willing to risk the motor completely quitting on you during your next project.

    Table saw time

    Good morning Stephen, Just went through that search. I finally decided on the Grizzly G1023RLW. I decided after receiving the saw that I should have gotten the mobile base (T28000) ... but it will be here next week. I'm happy to discuss my initial thoughts on the saw (it's still in the garage...

    2x4 Office Shelving

    Thanks for the suggestion Jack. I forgot to mention that all the adjustable shelves are faced with 1" thick poplar. This is for a church and preschool library and edge banding won't last. The poplar and shelf receive a 1/4" x 3/8" groove and a 1/4" x 1/2" spline (cut from the 1/4" plywood...

    I need a few parts made from aluminum and brass.

    You might consider contacting Clark Easterling at Windy Hill Foundry and see if this is something he might consider casting in either aluminum or cast iron. While casting from an existing casting adds some error (2-3% shrinkage if I recall), you might be able to use your existing trunnion(s) as...

    Craftsman 10" Table Saw

    Good afternoon all, Thanks for thinking about me. The Lucas Replacement Smoke Kit (Lucas Replacement Smoke Kit) that I found at a yard sale has me back running on this project. After further thinking, and deciding that I really want to woodwork, not restore woodworking machines, I'm going to...

    And then the magic smoke oozed out of the table saw ...

    Thanks everyone for your offers of assistance, suggestions, and comments. I pulled the blade off the saw this morning and despite the operators manual stating there was nothing to service on this motor, I found a screw to allow oiling the arbor end bearing. After much fuss, I managed to find...

    And then the magic smoke oozed out of the table saw ...

    Good evening Jack, Another good link ... thank you very much. The Shop Fox W1837 looks like a pretty good saw, sadly no one has them in stock. I'll keep digging through the rest of the reviews you linked. Regards, Rick
