dust hood

Filed under: old tools — howarth frank @ 6:59 pm

i have ruffed out a dust hood for the new planer in plywood.  i am thinking i wall re-make it in solid wood and turn the connection to the ductwork on the lathe.  i am finding in plywood a have dead spots at this connection point.
i have taken the motor for the planer to a motor shop, to be tuned up.  i had found that one of the bearings was not turning smoothly and would get hot if the motor was run for very long. they do not know what the prognosis is yet.
