    Powerline BK2 Bandsaw problems

    Hi TMHM. A brilliant job for a replacement low speed wheel. All that you need is a new belt which Ebay UK can provide. How is the condition of the roller blade support on the lower guide?

    Long drill or extension needed

    You could try using a cove cutter to route a semicircular shape in two timber pieces and glue them together to produce an internal circular profile. The exterior could then be shaped for the dimension required. It may be possible to produce a length of timber for several whistles at one attempt.

    Powerline BK2 Bandsaw problems

    The nominal thickness of the low speed wheel at the drive belt diameter is 13.2 mm. This measurement is the outside flange face distance. The nominal distance between the inner flange faces is 10.0 mm. This distance allows fitment of the drive belt and maximum blade width. The low speed drive...

    Floor strength for heavy(ish) machinery

    This thread has been interesting and informative, it seems your workshop was erected some time ago and may have been constructed to regulations that prevailed at the time. Is this the case? Present day tables for beam sizes and spans for domestic applications will provide advice for the designer...

    At the expense of the chuck an angle grinder could be used to cut it apart to release the chuck dogs and expose the lock screw.

    another geometry question

    Sunny Bob I hope you are in good fettle . In an earlier post I got the impression that you would use your router to machine the angled staves using a dovetail bit. As has been hammered home by others this will create problems. If your preferred power tool is a router could you consider cutting...

    another geometry question

    Hi Mike regarding a circumscribing circle which aligns with joints at 170 mm diameter. What you say is correct and finishing the exterior of the tub to a circular shape would not be possible if 170 mm diameter is required. I seem to recall that when Bob first brought this issue to everyone's...

The stave width which represents the chord to the arc of 35.6 mm is 35.34 mm. This gives an error of...

    Adjustable Violin Peg Shaper

    Some time ago I needed to replace the tuning pegs on a violin and wish the peg tool would have been available. The replacement pegs were bought via the internet and needed to be resized. This was done using a homemade pencil sharpener type tool. 4 blades are used to guide and cut the peg. The...

    Wondering simething about beam conpression

    BugBear is spot with what he is saying. Beams will have an area running the full span which is known as "the neutral axis". This area or sometimes called neutral fibre does not change in length under loading up to the elastic limit of the beam material (the elastic limit is the point where...

    compressor problem

    The seating for the rubber needs to be checked for corrosion of rough spots and cleaned up if necessary. A light spring is all that is needed but if your feel it has been weakened or corroded look for a replacement, SIP perhaps. Check the rubber for ridges or lost material and install it...
