    New tool! More room!

    I recently bought a used 12" Laguna TSS . I got rid of a work table, and a homemade downdraft table to make more room as I kept my old Unisaw. The Unisaw became the worktable, router table and I can saw stock longer than 9 ft now by opening the garage door. With an old power feeder I can power rip and mold lumber using a Sears molding head!. The Laguna slider sure is smooth compared to the Old Excalibur 60" slider which took up a LOT of room. I sold it and bought a Jessem mitre guage ! I have replaced all the shop pics in the original post with new ones and will incude a few extras in this post. Since selling the old Honda motorcycle and with the big Excalibur slider gone I have a lot more room to walk around now!

    NEW TOY!

    I sold my chinese made 6x99 oscillating sander and picked up a used 6x108 Progress single phase 2 hp. I have seen others come up for sale but always 3 phase. I didn't waste any time deciding! A lady marquetry artist moved and her new digs couldn't fit the sander. Hasn't had a lot of use, which is good! Canadian made in Toronto, and made when steel was cheap cause this thing must be 700 pounds. Front table was missing , but easy to make one from mdf and 1/2" water pipe and flange. I had to pull my craftsman tool chest out of the line up along the wall to fit it in. I also made up some feet to be able to slide it easier if I need to use the front table. Rubber / plastic furniture pad with a flat head stove bolt.

    I also have added wood storage racks to the shop, buying 3 of the Triton racks . I mounted 2 sets together above the lathes and 1 on the other wall beside the stroke sander. So nice not to be tripping on the lumber pile behind the TS.

    Hi Bryan.

    Good for you! more toys to play with! Enjoy them for me!


    Just a question, I see that you have a dust extraction system with a cyclone,

    could you give me some details about it? I'm thinking about setting one myself but the more information I have the more disoriented I feel.

    Thanks in advance.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    The cyclone is Bill Pentz design. Cost $50 in sheet metal, 8 hrs to put it together. Had the sheet metal guy fold and roll the parts, that saves a lot of time. The DC is a really old Grizzly 4 bag, probably near 25 yrs old now. I mounted it on the wall to make more room at floor level. The cyclone is used as a pre-separator. The cyclone is mated with a 2' sq of melamine board, strapped to the wall in a corner. When the garbage can is pulled out , the straps keep the cyclone from falling. A handle on the melamine assists in lifting a 1/2" so you can slide the can in. Not the best in efficiency, but way better than my previous attempt at separating dust and chips.

    Thanks Bryan.

    I have to start taking some decisions about building a cyclone, my main problem is that I will need to contract three phase power, because I can't find 3,5hp 220V single phase motors here, as soon as you need more than 2hp they make them three phase, and here domestic installations are always single phase.

    Anyway, I do not want to hijack this thread so I stop here.

    Thanks for the info provided.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Update!- Planer

    I spotted an ad for an old 5 hp single phase 20" Delta planer about 150 miles from me. It's a 1985 Delta-Invicta Rc-51, good shape but rusty and needing a paint job. It didn't take long to polish the rust off. I used Rustoleum machine grey in spray cans, taking most of the parts off to sand and spray. At around 1200 pounds, it's a beast to move. 4" poly casters makes it easy to roll. Can this thing plane lumber! 5 hp and that huge planing head, plus double outfeed rollers, sure moves stock throught it in a hurry.I love the powered raise/lower feature!!

    I have to start writing down and memorize all these things, otherwise I might get into trouble someday.

    Just remembered, She was Ayesha, great novel Ryder Hadgard ( if I remember well), I read it when I was 14 or so, later I saw Ursula Andress' movie.
