    Hendey Planer & Shaper way drip cups

    RCPDesigns: It may take a day or two to go through the files to get the information you need about pulley speed and the drip cup dimensions. The cups are a two part assembly, the hanger rod and the cup proper. With all of the moving of my shop, I have had limited time do any research. When...

Check your taper again to avoid buying any incorrect tooling...
