  1. Refitting Poly V-Belt on JET JWSS-10LFR

I turned the machine off immediately and found it easy to re-fit belt (as per manual) however it slipped off again when I started it up. It seems the belt simply holds in place by the tension from the spring loaded motor plate. I note also that the belt and both pulleys (arbor and motor) are grooved which I assume assists in keeping the belt in place. Is there something I am missing here? Perhaps I didn't have it sitting perfectly aligned? Is there anything else that keeps the belt in place. First time I have has an issue with the saw in 7 years after purchasing second hand so can't complain. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks, John

  2. Rust Prevention on Machinery & Tools - yet again ....

    For a few years, I'd been a regular user of Silver Glide (SiberGleit) on table saw and band saw tables - until recently. Back in July, I had a month away from the shed due to illness. When I got back into the shed in August, I found that the surfaces treated with Silver Glide had started to corrode - quite badly in some areas. The Lathe Beds and other equipment that had been treated with Inox were had some rust, and had attracted a thick film of dust and other corruption due to the oily film that Inox leaves on the surfaces. I don't use Inox anywhere where it might come into contact with timber as any traces of Inox that get onto the timber cause finishing problems.

  3. Books on routing

    If anyone has tried I would appreciate a PM to let me know As it now confirms my suspicion for the past months.

  4. More Information On The Bench Standard Router Lift

    1) What is the thickness of the Router Plate ?

    The top mounting plate itself is 6mm aluminium.

    2) What method is included with the router for levelling the Router Plate in the table ? (I will be using my own shop made table.)

    There are grub screws that can level the lift with your table on the rebated edge that the plate rests on. From memory there are six leveling holes for the grub screws with two holes that are used to fix the plate down to the top. You would need to install some insert nuts in your table to screw the locking (sic hold-down) screws in place.

    3) What sort of sealing is used on the bearings and gearboxes to prevent ingress of wood dust ?

    All bearings are fully-sealed. The winding nut mechanism itself

ID:	347946 I did some more reading on the Jessem factory web site and realised that the Jessem Mast-R-Lift Excel II is actually a full sized Router Table Top with the Router Lift fitted, and not a router insert . I didn't realise that. On first read, I had thought it was the usual router insert. Not correct.

    After some careful reading on the Jessem web site (http://www.jessem.com/MAST-R-LIFT_EXCEL_II.html), it turns out to be a 24" x 32" (609.6 mm x 812.8 mm) laminated phenolic router table top with the router lift ---- not a router insert.

    I guess I should have realised that it was a router table top and not a router insert when I saw the T-Track/Mitre Slot in the photo. Duh...

    I had intended that my new Router Table would eventually be fitted with an Incra Positioner Fence when funds allowed. Not sure how
