  • 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 moyor 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 SDZ allowing PDF files.
    I am putting them back in the SDZ 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

      December 3, 2000 I must be totally star-crossed this week . . .

      "Trouble comes in threes," didn't someone say? This week I've already dinged the blades of my new planer, nearly dropped my router from the accessory table, and now...

    • CBN Wheels - making Tormek Obsolete?

      CBN grinders; Are They Making Tormek Obsolete?

      That might seem like a bold statement, but my 20 minutes of use of the CBN wheels accomplished more than a couple of hours did on my Grizzly “Tormek” knock-off. I do know that the Tormek has MUCH better wheel than the Grizzly, but the problem with both is the speed - SLOW.


      Explanation for those not familiar with good grinding systems:
      Most bench grinders come in either of two speeds 1500 RPM (or 2000) or 3500...

    • Festool Domino Settings for Evenly Spaced Mortises
      by twistsol
      I was in the shop this weekend and was trying to figure out the math for the settings on the Festool Domino to space the mortices evenly and centered across a cabinet front to back. After a bunch of trial and error with my math, I gave up and got close enough and cut the Domino slots for most of the cabinets before my shop time ran out. It was still bugging me, so I figured it out on the plane on the way to work.

      Very simply, we need to subtract the width of all mortises created from...
