  • Relay booster box

    Over the years i've posted a number of things. one popular one was the relay booster box. this allowed a 1-15 A trigger to operate a high current and or high voltage device like the bigger dust collectors 20 or more amp and 120 or 240 volts.. The trigger was from another high current tool like a table saw. this prevented the DC and the TS from working off the same breaker. or to use a low current remote - most don't like big motor loads - to control the DC, or to use different voltages

    The instructions are reposted thanks to Relative who stored them in his server prior to this forum allowing PDF files.
    I am putting them back in the forum attachments here

    the instructions cover three versions
    • Tool switch controlling relay with separate 120 V power
    • remote control controlling 120 V relay
    • remote switch controlling 220 V relay

    • BT3000/3100 Featherboard using SMT
      by LCHIEN
      Here's how I do my Featherboard operations. As you know, Featherboards are spring boards meant to hold the workpiece against the fence snugly to ensure accurate rips while freeing both your hands for hand over hand and push stick smooth, even feeding of the workpiece to avoid burning and sawmarks.

      The Feather board is the classic one that they suggest you make.... Mine was made 20+ years ago, apparently a 1x4 piece of pine wood with one end cut at 30 degrees. 15-16 inches long 3 to...

    • BT3000/BT3100 Belly pan easy dust collection
      by LCHIEN
      I made a belly pan dust collection for my BT3000, using a commercially available, cheap dust pan from one of the woodworking supply houses with a 4" hose fitting.

      It seems to work effectively very simple DC belly pan under BT3000. Not tightly fitting I wanted to allow air in to carry the dust to the DC, pulling on a close cabinet is not a good idea. SO the plywood sits on the stand, not screwed down or anything. So there's air coming in thru the ends and the Shroud dust port arc....

      Small T-nut for the left side of BT3 rip fence or front of miter fence (Article Version)

      11-30-2023, 04:00 PM
      I have found a perfect T-nut for the front of the BT3 miter fence and for the left side of the rip fence (same extrusion used both places)

      Its actually a weld nut, but fits the T-slot described above.

      Weld Nut: #10-24 Thread, Tab, 1/32 in Base Ht, 3/8 in Base Wd, 5/8 in Base Lg, Steel, 50 PK
      Item 1LAJ3 Mfr. Model 1LAJ3​ (WW Graingers)...

    • Special DIY T-bolt for BT3000 Miter Fence, Rip Fence and Rails
      by LCHIEN
      After a bit more thinking, some universal T-bolts for the rip miter fence make more sense than fixture blocks.
      The two big slots in the rip fence and the miter fence and the front and rear rails are sized to take 1.00 inches wide x 1/8th and 1-1/8" wide x 1/8th.

      So I took some 1/8th flat Aluminum 1.00 inches wide and cut 1-1/8" long to make a 1" x 1-1/8" rectangular plates; I used a short rip fence Block to space the length but not cause a kickback with the...

      by LCHIEN

      DIY BT3000 FIXTURE BLOCK for Rip/Miter Fence extrusion

      Simple shop construction - no machining.


      This is intended to fit the top T-track on the Rip and miter fence (uses the same extrusion) on the Ryobi BT3x00 / Craftsman 22811 family of saws
      You must make the Block and Base parts; you can make them 1.5" or 3 inches long or modify to any other length.
      Make the base from 1/8” aluminum bar, you can get 1.5”, 2”, and 3” at Lowes...
