I’ve been lurking here for a while, trying to learn what I can as I collect pieces for my machine shop. I’ve been a woodworker since I was 10 years old, then several years ago I started ditching my modern machines and collecting vintage American iron. During this process I realized I can’t get parts for most of this old machinery, so buying old machine tools seemed like the next logical step. I built a 30x50 shop that I’m in the process of finishing, and meanwhile I’m collecting machines. My most recent finds are a Cincinnati Bickford 9” column radial drill and a K&T No. 2K horizontal mill, both from the early 40’s. The radial drill is in pretty nice shape, but the K&T is another story. I got it unloaded off of my trailer yesterday (barely), gave it a good cleaning and then moved it into the shop. I’m missing one handle off of the front of the machine, I think it should’ve been the long bar style and not a round handle. I also can not get any of the axis to move manually. When I try to turn the X handle it moves slightly but sounds like it’s moving the power feed gear train. The feed rate dial also will not turn. Is it possible it is just bound up and needs to be running to change the feed rate and then move the tables manually? As far as the surface rust on the ways, how would you attack it? Anything else I need to be doing/looking for as I start cleaning it up? I won’t have power in the shop for another couple months, so hooking it up is not an option currently.
