    Tool Making Brushes and dryer tube clean outs.

    The self propelled air cleaning tip for dryer vent does exist. Just came across a video showing one in action. The dryer must be turn on at the same time he uses the cleaning tip. It seems to work quite well, the guy runs a business with that tool.

    Machine Upgrading a smaller metal band saw

    I stumbled on the same video a few month ago and really like it. Made the large and small table. Love it and to switch over the table top is a breeze now. I didn't make the outboard table yet, because, I had previously made a quick and dirty solution for that. I drilled and tap 1/4''-20 on...

    Tool Making Brushes and dryer tube clean outs.

    Tool Making Brushes and dryer tube clean outs.

    These duct must be the steel galvanized type, because if they are the flexible aluminum foil type, I don't think they would survive any snake or flex brush clean. At my previous house I had a short run, about 15' and I was able to remove the flex line and take it outside to vacuum it clean...

    How should I attach the bevel gear for my power feed

    Thanks you all for the input. Three set screws will definitely secure the bevel gear properly. Will do. Today I made the 3/4"-20 nuts which keeps the lead screw in place. To make an internal threads I usually test my threading fit progress with the mating screw. I can't remove the lead screw...
