    Like others, I use my SB as a very large and expensive planer. Typically, I'll flatten the bow out first, then flip it and take out the cup. When doing the bow, I use index cards to prop up the...

    I think we're discussing two separate things. A workhorse machine that has no issues is fine even if it's 20 years old. A brand new machine with a 20 year old control system is not exactly fine in my...

    A horse was great for transportation until something better was invented. Would you invest $65k in a device with a 20 year old control system?

    But are they using the same old tired control system that's so beyond obsolete as to not even be funny?

    Did they update the control system too or did they keep the old one?

    Frankly, it doesn't look that enticing for twice what the old one cost.

    With low temperature plastics like acrylic and especially PVC, I find the best results are with an upcut single flute running low rpm's and a fast speed. The chips have to be cleanly ejected or they...

    Melting plastic typically indicates the speeds are too slow and the RPM's are too high. Lower the RPM's to the minimum and increase the speed. The problem with small bits and plastic is the chips,...

    It sounds like your machine was either screwed up from day one or something happened to torque it. Did a semi crash through your shop lately?

    I think the amount of pinion wear that's acceptable is up to the user. For me, I value accuracy and repeatability over unit cost so I change my pinions whenever they start to show slop. It took 7...

    I suggest two things for the pinions: 1. Get a allen socket to crank in some torque on those set screws. The angle wrenches just don't have enough oomph to do it. 2. Use Loctite.

    I suggest refraining from hitting the red stop button during bit changes. It's not only unnecessary, it also cuts power to the motors, rendering them free to move. All you need to do is remove the...

    If you don't call, you won't know. Besides, it would probably cost more to ship the darn thing than buy it regardless of where you sourced it (unless Amazon Prime).
