  1. Pulled motor on Powermatic 65 table saw, made repairs to elevation gears, reinstalled motor, and it will not run. It just buzzes and tries to turn. I checked switch for loose wires, plugged into wall socket that is running fine on belt sander. My volt/amp meter conked out, so I bought another one that has a clamp-on the cord type tester, but haven't checked it out. According to youtube, I can check capacitor with this tester. Will check it and also to see if a connection on the motor might have pulled out. Any other suggestions? Thanks!
  2. Picked up this old Powermatic a couple years ago after watching it sit beside the burn pile behind a local high school shop for most of a year. The weather was really starting to become unfriendly to it so I inquired about its status and was told that it was out of service permanently due to a problem with the foot brake making it unsafe to use by students and a new one had replaced it. They only would release it to me if I signed a waiver releasing them of responsibility which I did. After a man vs. saw episode even involving my wife’s help to get it trailered, it came home. The brake was indeed bad as the lining had worn out and the brake was used metal on metal for sometime, thus grinding away the flywheel area where the brake makes contact. It coasts to a stop for now. I had to replace the power cord and after hitting a wall finding suitable thrust bearings for the factory guides, I swapped them out for some Carters. The blade guide and table were pretty rusted and I had to disassemble those to free the guide. It isn’t beautiful and still sits in its original skin with some graffiti scratched into the paint, and drips of varnish, and such. I may paint it one day but I like the story it’s appearance tells. It is a monster machine when all of that cast iron momentum is in my favor as can be seen by the walnut block in the picture. I have cut small lumber from logs mostly and a few turning blocks and it’s even great for this. I gave up my 14 inch Delta after I ran this one. Only downside is the large footprint in my shop so I had to put wheels under it so I can move it around if I’m feeling strong. The good news is that the high school that housed this saw still is running a wood shop program, at least on some level. Not the case everywhere. I have an “as retrieved” picture of this one somewhere but could not find it. The photo here isn’t a great one but shows the saw this week in its messy glory! My shop is nearly all 50 plus year old machinery. I like the challenge of the old stuff I guess!
  3. "Back From The Archives " A few months ago I picked up some nice old metal working machines from a guy up the canyon (same guy I bought my Enterprise band saw from). As payment for the machines I agreed to restore his beautiful old Walker Turner drill press with power feed and a Powermatic 81 band saw for him. Here is a pic of the machines that I got from him. On the trailer is a LeBlond Tool and Cutter Grinder, An Alfred Eriksen 10 inch metal shaper, a 15 inch State disc sander, and his two machines. Not on the trailer is a huge Gorton Mill that weighs in at 3900 lbs and was to big for the trailer. I will pick that up when I deliver his machines to him. The band saw was converted to cut metal and was in pretty rough shape. I didn't take any real good before pics but you can see it in the pic above and this pic of the trunnions it was pretty typical of the condition of the rest of the saw ... rust everywhere. Here's what it looks like now. Hopefully this is the last stamped steel machine I have to work on .... give me good old cast iron anytime. The Walker Turner DP will be next. I will post pics when I get it done Thanks for looking, Shane
  4. Hi all, I would like to introduce you to my new (to me) baby. 😁 This is my first lathe and I am excited to fall into the vortex. I have been watching CL for well over a year but nothing ever came up that I liked. I was just about ready to give up on used and go new. I was invited to the local Woodturners Association meeting a couple of weeks ago and was given a lead on this one for $1400. Can’t wait to start this new adventure.
  5. Dear folks, I have been in a quandary lately, I have some extra funds for this year, and I would like to purchase a table saw. But I cannot decide which one I want, so I am coming to the membership to help me decide. You'll see a poll I created with the table saws I have in mind to purchase. Can you please participate in my poll, and vote for the brand you find most reliable in your experience. Thanks! This is a test topic for our new polling feature, please see tutorial at:
  6. LEMETELLYA That head stock was a BEAST of a lift. From the floor to a low stool from the stool to a bench, from the bench to the bed ( twice). Got 'r up and runnin' and ohhhh sooo smooooothhhh, That three phase with the inverter really delivers too. Running it as the slowest possible I can't grab the hand wheel and slow it. Love the tool rest positioning. Love it. Put that sucker anywhere on the bed and it stay. Changing the belt between the speed ranges is easy. Lift the motor lock it in position and move the belt. I got the bed up with a Come-along and some chain and nylon webbing.
  7. this may be as good as it gets for a new one. I just got an E mail from Craft Supplies that they have them for 20% off through August. You don't normally see PM stuff at 20%, so though I'd mention it. BTW, shipping isn't free....but I ran an estimate to get one to me; it was about $78 (NW Ohio). They are shipped from the PM distribution center, and I have no idea where that is.....but the freight is still a lot less than Ohio sales tax.
  8. I'm headed to an auction Saturday and there is a Powermatic 14 spindle sander up for auction. I read that there is an issue with the oscillation gearing. Anyone have one? If so, what's your take. What's it worth?
