Help with Hinges

Hey guys so I tried to figure this one out on my own and I think I am there but just want to confirm. I am having my cabinets refinished and while everything was off I wanted to upgrade to concealed self closing hinges. No big deal right? Wrong. Apparently there is a vast selection of different hinges and I need the exact type to fit my cabinet. So I now know I have face frame full overlay style cabinets so I know which type of hinge I need to get. My question is i want something that will…See More

"THANK YOU KEN!!! You couldn't have made it any easier. I took off the old belt. Brought it to my local ACE. They measured it and handed me an exact replacement. All for under $10.00."

"You probably already know this but make sure the outer edge is as wide on the new one so it doesn't ride in the bottom of the pulleys.  I got my Craftsman TS belt at the parts store."

"Another option may be your nearest auto parts store.  If it's an independent or Napa, they can probably measure the old one and get you a replacement.  The chain stores may be able to help if they are staffed by car guys and not…"

Mao Shan 12" tilting arbor table saw

Hey guys I need your help again. I aquired a 1987 MAO SHAN table saw from my grandfather today. All in all it looks to be in pretty good shape. I gave it a thorough cleaning and once over. Obviously I will need a new blade and it didn't come with a fence. Those are easy fixes. The problem I am having is that the belt is shot. Not from over use I dont even think this thing has 50 hours on it. It is dry rotted. I have the manual which lists a part number but that doesn't seem to be helping. I…See More

"Count me in on the Triton TRA001 3.25hp router. You can find them around $250. Mine is doing a stellar job. The built in lift isn't as smooth as others but does the job just fine. I also strongly agree with the need for adequate dust…"

Added bonus when I bought my house was the air compressor in the basement with a line out to the garage. I never would have put one in. To many other higher priorities. But now that I have it I don't know how I ever lived with out it.
