  2. Efficacy of cyclone with resin ribbons and clumps from slab flattening

    The problem is if my impeller extractor picks up the resin coming off the...

    Thanks everyone, I have 15A powerpoints - paid $1,000 to have 32A run out to the garage couple years ago. So the supply and sockets aren't a problem.

    Thanks, that's what Twitter is telling me also. So it's not a dealbreaker or won't require expensive rewiring or be a fire risk or anything.
  14. 10A plug on a machine now sold with 15A plug?

    Hi, I'm considering purchasing an older Carbatec dual drum sander off a forum member and it's fitted with a 10A plug. Carbatec sells them new with a 15A plug.

    It's about 20 years old, but has been little used for much of that time.

    I ended up getting the Geiger Tru-N-Dress but unfortunately, I couldn't correct the wobble. So I replaced both wheels. Brand new, and it still wobbles. So ... guess it's time for a new grinder!

    No no, grinder is bolted to bench. I mean vibration is causing things on the bench like angle gauge etc to fall off the bench.

    Also, that video is gruesome. But sobering.

    The dog is 18.8mm - it's the spring that's the problem; maybe I can use a Dremel sanding drum and just open the top of the hole a bit.
  45. Are you sure 19mm is right for a 3/4 bench dog?

    The Timbecon website and everything I've read says a 19mm hole is fine for 3/4" bench dogs, but mine are getting jammed in tight, requiring pliers to extract them from the workbench.
