twist link belt recently installed on my 8" grizly jointer. Very smooth and
much less vibration and much quiter. I am only running 1 belt instead of 2
(ordered not enough). well worth the $ the belts were on sale at rockler at 20%
Slide vise installed on my Hollow Chisel Moriser. I bought the 6" from HF (on
sale $20 off) paid $40 I modified it as shown here
discussed here http://www.woodweb.com/cgi-bin/forums/furniture.pl?readD9559
great time savings in alignment of bit and espeacially mortising. Cuts time by
1/2 or more.. The 6 inch is possibly too large, I can mortise to the cenetr of 2
3/4 stock. Next time I would buy the 4 or 5 inch.and maybe get more clearance to
get more capacity.
Hollow chiser sharpener work well. VERY slight diiference in cone taper vs
chisel inside taper. I am using the cheap hollow chisels that came with my
delta and there is a significant improvement.
More reviews of new and newish tools to come if any interest, let me know.
