    OT: Table Saws

    Ok, update. Disassembled saw and found arbor pulley and motor pulley for v belt had loosened set screw and were about half way off their respective shafts. Plastic shroud over belt busted and rubbing against belt. That along with my pulleys was the chatter. All fixed and belt realigned. Then took Naptha, WD 40 and 150 to 400 grit sand paper and used vibrating sander to “de-rust” top then good coat of Johnson’s paste wax. Also re-paralleled fence and re-centered kerf splitter. Guess what? Works like a dream now. No more motor bind. Moral: Little preventive maintenance more often than every 10 years goes a long way. Still have the Saw Stop on my Christmas, Birthday, Anniversary, ....... list.

    I’m not disagreeing. Remarkable technology.

    Have looked at them. I’m not a pro woodworker, just a “ piddler” as my dad used to say. The Grizzly remains looking good. I’m reworking my Craftsman now. Found one issue I’ll detail later.

    Oh yeah. It was built when Craftsman still built really good power tools. Gonna look to refurbish since Craftsman still has parts availabile but dreaming if I can’t make it work. BTW a factory refurb Grizzly sounds nice 👍.

    After 25 years my Craftsman 10” table saw is giving up the ghost. Gonna try to refurbish if I can BUT... if you were going to get a new saw what would you get? Budget is $1000 or less (I’m not a professional woodworker). Don’t want portable. I’m looking at Ridgid, Dewalt, Delta, Craftsman and even found some factory refurbished Grizzly that would fit the budget.

    Can’t answer your question Charlie, but dying to know about the police encounter.

    East Coast Rally Registration

    Denver, You are registered and all is well. For some reason between PayPal and the site it takes a long time to “process “ the order. So it does say payment received but still processing. When it completes this process it should show up on your dashboard. David Dixon should know more about this since he setup and runs the site. I’ll see if I can get in touch with him, but not to worry. All is good.

    High Desert RV Park near Albuquerque

    Glenn, We stayed a week at American RV couple of years ago. Nice resort. We were warned not to leave anything of value out in the campgrounds near the interstate. Apparently some petty theft from quick off and on freeway.

    Volvo "Console" Ideas please

    Just an idea to help redeem myself. How about a mesh bag that is suspended between four straps with snaps. Easy to stow when not in use. Easy to unsnap for access. Snaps could be on cab divider.
