    How to stop rust on lathe accessories

    Johnson's is all I use on all exposed metal surfaces in the shop. A jointer is the oldest tool (~45 years old) and no rust yet.

    Yes. Thse were were Kunz (painted green) and purchased new. I read in last 4-5 years they were marketing more expensive bench planes ~$150 or more.

    Back in the 80's I bought a scraper plane, small poke shave and a couple of Stanley copies of scrapers. No issues have been found and I still use them. I forgot what catalog I used for purchasing them.

    Torch wood "staining"

    I use a BernzOmatic torch with flame spreader tip attachment. So far I've only used it on white pine. It gives a nice brown with grain highlighted. Keep the torch moving and go over areas to even out the color. Be sure to remove all the ashes with a brush.

    Direct external vent for DC??

    Scott, I use the DC for the miter saw. But, being a graduate of the jury rigged school, I use large cardboard box as my enclosure. it has a 4" vent/flex transition to main 6" system. It removes most all chips & dust. I found that setup in an old Fine Working book. I know; no photo, didn't happen.

    Dust port for Delta Unisaw

    Go to big box store or heating supply outlet and buy a metal 6" diameter transition to a rectangular floor outlet (6"x14"). I adapted it to the right side sawdust outlet below the hinged access door . My collector uses 6'"x 10 ft. plastic pipe from Agri-Supply to all machines and chop saw.

    Decimal, fraction or metric

    Familiar/comfortable with both systems. I'm with Bas's thoughts and use English system because of lumber/woodworking measurements. I have begun to use gage blocks for tool setup. To each his own.

    Remote Start Issue for DC

    I also use a $15 remote for lamp control that activates the 220 circuit on my ClearView Collector. I used a Long Ranger on my Delta collector that only lasted year or so. Went to my cyclone and sold the Delta. The lamp remote and 110/220 V relay is still going strong after 14 years..

    I hate to give up on a saw but...

    I had this issue with a DeWalt when new. The clamp screws were not installed correctly. After I corrected that, no more slipping. Not sure how how Pegas clamps compare to DeWalt, but folks use Pegas clamps to replace DeWalt's.
