    If worse came to worst here, and you had to destroy the shaft and gears to extract them, how replaceable are they and at what cost? I can well imagine how stressful it would be to have a predicament...

    Dennis,

    I am thinking of acquiring an FP2 but the space it would go in has a passageway only 39" wide. So, I'm trying to figure out if the machine would go through as is, or what parts might need...

    Sounds good in theory, however unless the existing set of knives in the cutter head is all near-new when the nick happens, then rotating a single insert knife into position to provide a fresh cutting...

    Hah! That's funny. The only reason no one comments here on such matters is they have little to no clue about Canadian politics - many Americans would struggle to place Canada on a world map for that...

    Why not obtain that sort of drill from Europe where they are readily available (though not in fractional inch sizes)? Selection in the US is rather marginal - I haven't been able to find any...

    One issue you may wish to consider with the offset spindle, is that there is no plunge functionality. The connection is with a small drive belt, and the offset spindle itself is fixed. So, setting...

    Not directly familiar with the machine, but looking at the pictures you supplied, I would focus attention on the top of the drive pulley, where there appears to be a locknut. You may have to...

    Dōzuki are single-sided saws with a stiffening rib. These may be fitted with rip teeth, or cross-cutting teeth, and are, because of the rib, not intended for deep cuts. The rib improves blade...
