Post: RE: Advice on drum sanders

My 1066z double drum is 10x nicer/beefier/ridgid than my performax 22/44 pro was. I'd trade the 1066z for even a cheap 37" widebelt no contest.

I have several. Awesome. They do not flex like the hf and the screw is high quality. I have mostly longer ones. I'd buy more if i find the right deal.

Post: RE: Problem with my Sawstop

Brake to blade spacing is a measured distance, not just that it spins freely. Could be too far away. Did you read the manual.like I suggested?

Check spacing between blade and break. Prob needs adjusted. Easy to do. Get your manual or down load it.

Post: RE: Variable speed ?

Kbac makes a dc speed controller and people use them with dc motors from often times free or cheap treadmill motors. I prefer ac 3ph motors and vfd. Kbac also sells a couple really nice vfds.
