New tool (woodworking) - May 16, 2013, 10:07 AM

Picked this up last wed. I finally got around to testing it out last night. 2 cuts and dust everywhere. I quickly remembered why I prefer metal over wood

Can't see pic at work. Dust everywhere is why I don't like working on the internals of motorcycles (the dust from the woodworking would be difficult to keep out, it really does go everywhere).

Early 90's grizzly 1023 (unisaw clone) and 52" Biesemeyer fence.

I'm already looking at dust collection options.

Oh, sounds pretty sweet. I have a ridgid contractor saw so I have never bothered with dust collection (it can be done but there are a lot of holes to fill). I have actually heard good things about the harbor freight dust collectors.

That was/is my current plan. I might be able to get away with using it on my blast cabinet as well.

Other option: go by the local middle/high school when school is not in and take theirs. The local middle school has a monster dust collector sticking right out the back of the building... It's goofy but I look at that thing with envy every time I see it.

Saw, fence, blades, cross cut sled, 50' of power cable and a huge pile of other non saw stuff.

The saw was vibrating more than it should and I could hear the bearings. I decided to rebuild the motor and picked up bearings for the arbor. There was a lot of slop in the pulley after some further investigation the orig owner never put the keyway back in. Only the set screws were holding it.





I ended up turning the rotor to clean up the shaft and knurled it to bring it back to the correct size.


All that including bearing replacement took about 45min. Not realizing I moved the starter winding switch I got to take it back apart about 10 times trying to figure out what I did wrong.

It's kind of lucky you were the buyer. Most would just be screwed with an inaccurate saw, with some just replacing the whole motor.

Yeah in hindsight I overpaid seeing as the motor rebuild would have likely cost someone a couple hundred, and a new motor is $350-500

Luckly for me it its metal I can generally fix it.

That's a big 'un. You've got 220 in the garage? What are you building?
