I am in the middle of another experiment on the lathe (Jet mini) and the power switch failed. Failed in the ON position. It is nothing more than a toggle switch, but is a pain to deal with. Mainly because of my ability to drop things that fall in never, never land. I unplugged and got a new one at HD. Not a direct match (never is) So I had to improvise. I made it work after fumbling and dropping things. It missed fitting in the old switch mounting by one eighth inch, after I had it all together and tried to mount it. I am frustrated and dropped some screws. Many years ago as an instrument tech, I could work for hours on the same mechanical instrument. I am not as patient now and much clumsier. So I got me a glass of iced water and got on this forum. After about 15 minutes I returned to the lathe, got a flash light and looked for dropped parts. WOW, I found the screws and pieces quickly. Sometimes you just have to chill out.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
