Bandsaw Mills / Battery
« Last post by mountainlake on January 18, 2019, 01:04:59 PM »
 My battery on my is getting weak, wouldn't crank it over very good a -2 f so time for a new one.  I called the local International truck dealer who has a group 31 stud type 925 amp battery for $75. That's what I run on my mill, got rid of those crappy post and converted the cable ends to the stud type.  Thats maybe $30 to $50 less than most places want for the same battery.  Yes its cold again +3 f at 1 pm and windy.   Steve

I love working with wood. Anything from sawmills to wood burning.
I had a VERY hard time getting my user name and pass word to work
but with the help of Steve Hammond and the Sawmill and Timber Team
we got it working... I'm hoping to add many stories to the good one here.

Power Tools and techniques. / Planer maintanence question for you guys.
« Last post by A.O. on January 01, 2019, 08:06:45 AM »
Ok , as you know.. or maybe not.. I bought a used Jet JWP 160s 16" planer, got it all up and running "but"..

It has a set of anti kickback fingers that are on a rod on the feed end of the machine, these fingers are supposed to loosely pivot on the rod to be effective. On my machine they are very gummed up with something, pitch maybe? Anyway, I see no way to remove them to clean without a major disassembly of the machine! I do have the manual and it says nothing about them except to keep them clean!
Does anyone know how to get them out, or know of something I could spray them down with to loosten them up??
They are so gummed up its kinda hard to even start a board through the machine!

Thanks in advance!

Here's a PDF of the manual...

General Discussion / Major Announcement!

Although I am sorry this post had to come right before Christmas, it is necessary, in pursuit of total transparency, to inform our great members of the overwhelming cost this site is having on our wallet.

I recieved noticed the other day of our Annual server bill and let's just say I am not sure if we are going to be able to handle it. 

As you can see from the Picture of the invoice below, the bill is massive!  A whopping $83.88!  :o

Merry Christmas to all!   :laugh: :laugh:
