Old machine tools are cool

Little gear drive Swedish milling machine I'm using. It's really just a mill drill actually, but it does ok. need to fix the quill spring, she'll just drop without the clamp tight. I wish this was an R-8 collet, it's an old style Morse though. 220 volt. On it's second owner, I'm not sure how old it is, but I think 1960's sometime. Retired Boeing engineer used it on his hobbies. I'm trying to find out more about him, long since passed away. It's been in Bill's garage for 20 years. I'm slowly cleaning it up while he's not looking. It has dozens of oil pots and grease zerks on it, and adjustable ways. It's got some play in the head bearings, to be sure. I haven't yet swept in the head and put the indicators on it to see what shape it's really in.

I'll have to get pics of my dads metal lathe. When it was made it had pedals on it.

Ok, she brought the tools over today. Below is the belt sander. The circle you see to the right rear is a sanding disk. The case is in good condition.


I plug it in, hit the switch, and nothing. I did hear a little bzzzrk for a quarter second and that was all. There is a cover for the wires, it's not on in the pictures. Below is the MFG plate.


Looks like it was made in July of 1983.

This is the band saw. It's a black and decker and is mostly plastic. I'll have to pull it apart later after I finish the bike.


What do you all think? I feel the sander is worth working on. I'm not to sure about the band saw.

Don't spend too much making them work, but you might luck out.

Just out of curiosity they have 3 prong cords correct? Make sure the metal cases have a ground terminal and that its connected, and used in a grounded outlet.

I have several old tools that all they needed was new brushes, and away they went.

my twelve " angle grinder has clothe wound wires and a metal switch. when i got it it would shock the piss out of you everytime you turned it on

fixed it but it's a monster so it's used as a bench grinder to sharpen the maul after the kids split cement.

My big worm drive circular saw was the same way. Didn't even need to switch it on and the case was hot.

I just put a new insulated cord in with a ring terminal to a screw inside the case for a ground. And that solved those ills. But the first time I discovered that was painful.

I still have my dads 1940's "State" cast iron table saw that took three of his fingers.
paper wound wires and a 1 horse GE motor dims all the lights in the shop every time you kick it on. only tool i have that scares the shit out of me

took the tips off two fingers a few years ago on a table saw. hurt like a bitch. dado blade kickback. lucky it was only up 5/16".

My guess. Logan



That is a really nice old piece of iron.

I'd clean and lube everything before I run it unless you know its history.

Get quick change toolpost too. Makes life easier.

Dang!

ADV brings the wisdom! And fast too. Thanks Tyrannus.

I was thinking about the QC toolpost too. Is that usual easy (standard fitting parts), or does it involve machining something?

Yep, it does need a good cleaning. At least it hasn't been stored in a barn for 40 years. Neglected in the back of a shop, yes.
