sorry cboy, it was a week of thrashing trying to get my bro's 67 camaro up and running. the day of rain really messed us up. think we could have gotten it done if that didn't happen. where u located? i'm sure i might be there again, maybe next year. hopefully i'll get a chance to post some pics of what i did in a week out there(pulled the front subframe, painted firewall and dash, cleaned subframe, new bushings, new brakes, drum to disc conversion, my bro was putting the 383 together, while i was getting everything else done.) divide and conquer kind of deal.

but i'll post the pics in a bit here(or a link to them). maybe next time i can get him to come up to your place and we can come with the camaro

our service center here is a joke. they always tell me i have to order this myself. talk about customer service. and the manual is long gone. i think the saw is older than i am. dad got it when he was still around. all metal. they don't build it like that anymore. it's probably 30+ yrs old.

I have a $150 Harbor Freight unit that is about 10 years old. While it is not a super unit, shipping was free and it does have 16 speeds and is fine for occasional use. You really have to crank down on the adjusters or the quill will stall going thru anything much thicker then sheet metal. My biggest complaint was the Jacobs style chuck - it made nice oblong holes. I replaced it with a $50 JET chuck and it is now runs nice and true and with tight belts will drill most anything.

As far as JET tools, my 15 year old 10" table saw, made in Japan, has been a godsend for my wood shop work. The only change was a to better drive belt, and of course, a better blade(s)

You can also check on Sears parts online, without calling a service center.


Am I missing something here? Why is there no adjustment to be able to use a stock band saw blade? It has to loosen to change blades, right??

Get a floor pedal for safety sake. Every try to reach up and turn off a press if something gets caught and spinning? I picked up a pedal for 20 bucks and I keep my foot right where I can kicked it off.
