and a 1995 [510] as my floor set up.


Its a good machine to have, fills in where it's needed.

I can't remember this one, but he is nice for shure! 


I love the fine details.  I use a similar method for making those small round/tapered pieces.  Whew, I was hoping to find an easier way, lol.

Wheel making jig with the SS drum sander.
It starts with an adjustable router jig mounted to a sliding table.


Looks like a very useful jig.

Main Street to the Mountains

Set the SS up like pictures 3 and 4 Then make all your fine adjustments with the router adjusters.
You can now put  the wheels one at a time over the dowel and turn and they will all be the same
and by making small adjustments you now have super fine  adjustability.
