  1. I am looking for a set of guides that would be an upgrade from what I have now, which is just the stock roller guides for my Grizz 14" Ultimate Bandsaw. I have folks say they love the freeze blocks, and then there are some nice bearing guides too. My saw is this one at http://www.grizzly.com/products/The-Ultimate-14-Bandsaw/G0555?utm_campaign=zPage A 14" with riser block. Does anyone have any recommendations for a new guide set? Thanks!
  2. Need some help from the folks. A couple years ago I purchased an Enco 199-9001 14" band saw for $40. It needed cleaned up and a trunion. Called Enco got the trunon and this thing worked pretty good. Now the upper guide block ( pot metal ) broke. Called Enco, the model and all parts are discontinued. Went to Lowes, looked at the Porter Cable one they carry, looked close enough to swith the complete assembly and I would be back in business. Looked up all the parts, made a list and called the local Dewalt repair center, talked to a nice guy on the phone, gave him the list and most of the parts were back ordered. They have been back ordered for a while and he noted this may mean they are discontinued also. So I am back to looking for a upper guide block or upper assembly again. This saw is not the best, but works good and gets a fair amount of use. ANy help, ideas or information is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys
  3. Champion Drill Press

    About seven weeks ago I was scanning thru some on line ads when I came across one for an "antique " drill press. The ad was accompanied by this rather poor picture. What I saw was enough to get my interest as a first blush it looked like a 14" delta. I sent the seller a note telling him I was interested but lived a two hour drive away so could he send more pictures. These are what he sent. It sure looked Deltaish but I did have some questions. I called him and he told me it had absolutely no identifying marks .It was a 14", column was 2 3/4" , it was the right overall height. Still I had concerns ; the spring return did not look right, the stop rod collar looked odd, the motor mount was different, the collar for the table was different. What was this press? I searched over on the Vintage Machinery site for a like machine. No luck ,the closest was still a Delta. A review of old Delta catelouges revealed a 1933 floor model which seems to be Delta's first that had some differences from the 220. Could this be one of those. Another phone call and conversation. Finally I could not stand it any longer and made an offer conditional on there being a front pulley cover. He insisted it did not have one but I told him the pictures gave a clue to it's existence and would he remove the metal shroud and check. He was amazed, as he said "one magically appeared". Okay sold said I and arranged for a payment via the web. So now I owned what might be an early 1930's Delta two hours away. As it happens my daughter lives in the same city as the seller so I contacted her husband to pick it up. A couple of Saturdays later we made or monthly trip to visit my grand daughter and loaded it up. When I got it home the close examination began. It really was a close cousin to my 1930's Delta 220 but no marks could be found. First ,off came that metal wrap around the pullies. Voila, a pulley cover. close to delta but not quite. Note the odd pointer and stop rod collar I then started disassembly, more to clear up some floor space them start the refurbishing. After all I already had two disassembled macines on the bench, one was the 15" General I picked up the week before. Decided to remove motor and as the switch box was taken off what should appear but this decal. I quick cleaning reveal the rest of the decal It's a Champion Blower and Forge from Lancaster PA. I would have never guessed. I know Champion made a lot of post drills but a check of the ones on the VM site showed nothing similar so maybe I got an uncommon machine after all. As I completed disassembly I decided I might as well start the restoration now. Afterall when you are already cleaning up two machines whats one more. My major concern was the Champion decal. As the machine had no other identification whatsoever, including no foundry casting numbers preserving this was necessary. In the end it proved impossible but a member from another forum sent me the artwork so I could make this one. Anyway , this is how it looks today. My 1936 delta DP220 stares across the shop as if seeing its own reflection
