  1. "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
  2. 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.
  3. 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:
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. There is an auction of heavy-duty equipment near Cincinnati. I have no association with this company other than I occasionally buy some things cheap from them. They specialize in business liquidations, estates, overstock and returned items from Amazon, Wal*mart, Home Depot, and other stuff from who knows where. Be aware of voltage and 3 phase where noted. http://bid.bidfta.com/cgi-bin/mnlist.cgi?mcmann662/category/ALL
  8. 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!
