    table saw slow start up

    Being a small 10" machine I'm assuming it's single phase. If this is the case a a over tightened belt will make struggle to start due to the low torque from the motor. Having said that I would remove the belt completely and ensure everything is free running I.e the spindle I would then start it...

    Wadkin Planer

    the last brake i fitted came direct from dold and cost around £250. Fairly easy to fit you may be better off going for a new starter and brake as i have had problems in the past with the combo of new and old switch gear. Make sure you fit it on a wel it on protected area of the machine as i have...

    Robland SD510 planer / thicknesser

    the wadkin BTS 500/630 had a mechanical counter that was accurate as well as powered rise/fall you can get a good one for between 3-4k. These are far stronger than the robland. And give a really good finish. but if you want the didital read out it narrows your options as not many manufacturers...

    Robland SD510 planer / thicknesser

    The robland machines are a decent machine for the money certainly no better or worse than scm/griggio but not as good as a wadkin/dominion. Yes the panel saws do go out of square but its easy to re-adjust. one of roblands weak points is the switch gear seems to be a bit fragile (if you have...

    startrite feed issues!

    Its difficult to say without seeing whats going on. A common problem i come accross on thicknessers is operators tend to increase the spring preasure when they are having problems feeding which causes more friction in the bed and makes it harder to feed the machine. Try backing off the preasure...

    sedgwick or felder

    olly what you have failed to take into account is a wadkin BEM that you used has likely 30yrs ish of heavy use and still going strong the felder will not last anywhere near that length of time. for example most good old fassioned heavy cast machines will will run for 20/30 yrs before they...
