Now I know what you're up to all the time.

I've lost most of my pictures from the Penngrove Power & Implement Museum, but I'll go back up there and take pix of the equipment we've got.

Last year we snagged a mill from Bridgeport, CT - a small outfit that was operating before Bridgeport took them over, AFAIK - so it's turn of the century. Some other 60's era stuff in Steve Phillip's shop.

This is a damned cool thread, thanks for starting it.

PS: I am tired. I don't want to slight RedRocker & the rest of you FF's skills and passion. I'm just a little tired so please forgive my not mentioning you by name.

I am in awe of ya'lls skills and abilities. I love seeing these things operate and keep being useful. And the folks that make them work.



Dagwood - keep talkin' "kid" - you have a great gig.
You need to post some photos of the lineshaft running off the Fairbanks Morse YVA. The museum is an amazing place.

Yeah, as soon as I go back out there and shoot - probably this weekend. I lost 2 years of photos from there - shows, restorations, etc. when my laptop got stolen this summer.

Old tool question. I have an old band saw and belt sander coming to live with me this weekend. Somehow my mom found them and grab em up several months ago. She never got around to trying them out. Neither one appears to turn on when plugged in. When I hit the switch, nothing. Can they be fixed / repaired? I'll get pictures when they arrive for some help to figure it out.

Sure they can be fixed. Worst case scenario is you need a new motor, pulley bearings and reburbished guides. Even at the worst it can be done for less than the cost of a new machine.

Cool. She's going to be bringing them by this weekend. I'll post up when I get them. They look old, but they may just be heavily used.

Caveat:

I should have added that they are salvageable as long as none of the major castings are compromised. (not a likeley scenario)

Ya what are you doing to that auger? Machining the shaft so you can attach additional lengths to the stub?

Did the guy get caught on the centering bolts?

bolt caught his pocket. i guess it was ugly. knew the guy sorta. worked with him at one time.

it was a fucked up mess from the manufacturer that wouldn't take blame but Had to be installed that night. tight fit for an auger as it carries talc. super fine..
vertical.
if there woulda been time they could have had a new one made for half as much $$.

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.
