If you guys are talking "depth" as in the vertical adjustment between body and base, you must be using them for really specific tasks if you can get by with only adjusting the fence or whatever. I...

John,

No, when I made that I wasn't aware of any of that sort of stuff, but reading this thread and looking at some of the products that are out now, I may start thinking about it. I'm cleaning up...

I built and have been running a sealed box for about twenty five years. I'm having a heat issue with my router at the moment, but it has something to do with my recent repacking of the bearings or...

Speaking of high current switches that don't hold up- Has anybody run into that deal with any of your larger tools where the internal contacts heat up and fuse together or something, so you reach...

Richard,

The 3612BR here (conveniently in pieces) has an STE115A12 in it, labeled 15A/8A @125/250. The body is a bit smaller than you describe (7/8"x9/16"). I have a feeling you're mainly just...

That's exactly how mine ended up getting rejuvenated. Must not have been the finest or most well lubed bearings in those things. I've had lots of stuff with old dried up bearings that didn't sound...

Thanks Chuck,

Yeah, I knew they did that with some stuff. I dealt with one of those 6"disc/36"belt combo sanders recently (a Craftsman) and discovered that there were about twenty others. Usually,...

I can't see Makita actually having anything to do with it, but the stuff about outsourced companies who have factories and machines already set up to do the work for Makita pumping...

Fake Makitas?

What the crap is this thing I just bought? I remember reading of the "Performax" trim router a bunch of you guys like, but didn't realize it went beyond that.

This is the giant plunge model...

I coincidentally built a Shop-Vac cabinet back in the pre-youtube days that looked just like the one in that video, only it hinged open from the top and was 3/4" particleboard. Same result as yours....

Last time I did a bunch of bearing research, I thought it was Japanese, then USA (not sure on USA, but I remember Japan). If the Italians are really expensive, maybe they weren't considered though.

Hi again Chuck!

I'm cool with the numbers you're talking about. The ones they give you on the other hand are weird. For instance, the larger 6001 bearing in this is known as a "330003-09". If they...

Well it actually works. The collet area gets pretty hot for the little time that I ran it. I'm hoping when the grease heats up and spreads around inside the bearings that'll improve (also hoping I...

Yeah, that's what stopped me from grabbing a replacement. There were a couple on eBay, but for some reason they seem to sell for about what you can get a more modern reputable tool for on Craigslist....

Well, they cleaned up pretty well, and I don't usually have any trouble with removing and replacing those rubber type seals, so hopefully it'll do OK with what's already in it. I'm more concerned...

Black and Decker 7604 bearing info.

In case anybody else ends up fighting with one of these, I've recently stripped mine and repacked the bearings. Most of the online info I saw gives you proprietary B&D numbers, and I personally hate...

Just dug up this old thread after doing some myself. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. It sprayed heavy orange dust like a garden hose in all directions. Worse yet, the jig I was working on was...

dag, you're right :crying:

I wonder if the traffic took their supply down. I thought the stuff said it went to the 27th or 31st or something past Christmas, but I could be mistaken.

Thanks MT Stringer!

Does anybody know if that would be a Grizzly thing, or do most brands take a proprietary filter? I saw plans recently for DIY designs using squirrel cage motors, and they just...

That was one of the links I looked at when I first started with it. That and a video I found both use an impact wrench. I think this thing was probably just worse off than most people's....

I *think* I looked at all that stuff when I first started messing with it, but I'll double check when I go back out there. All the parts up in that area are pretty well blocked either by the...
