    Default Major Rebuilds, Repairs, & Info Per Manufacture

    This will be a "sticky" and alphabetized per manufacture.

    I will edit as we go. You post a link to a good rebuild or repair thread, or a thread with solid useful info, like serial data bases, operations and such. When I get to it, I'll add it the list. Then I may delete your post to try and keep the sticky as clean as possible, but we'll see how it goes.

    I'll add in the manufactures as we go also if you don't see the particular one up here.

    We are looking for American, Industrial, and not specifically covered in another section.

    I do have a life, so be patient with me.


    American Tool Works:

    You can get help. Lots of it.

    - Only a privileged user can roll changes into place.

    However..

    - Individuals who care - an ad hoc flexible grouping of volunteers - who cannot effect a change can nonetheless IDENTIFY candidates for your review and action. Simplest is a note with links. No need to duplicate what is already in the PM DB.

    Next-up might be existing text with suggested alternative text alongside.

    - A NEW thread done with cut and paste might make a better sticky, the sources PLURAL left as they were, where they were. Many a 'how to" needs snippets from more than one source, often spread out over time.

    - stickeys can, and should, be heirarchical "tree' branches. Note, for example Monarch forum has so many, all at "top" level, that more than a full screen/page must be scrolled to get past them, and into the active discussion zone.

    Conscript a bit of team support effort, your actioning the suggestions vetted won't absorb as many hours of a given day. Task gets done sooner. Might even get done better?

    Lots of folks don't wish to "Moderate".. or should not, but can still help lighten a Moderator's load.

    Many eyes. Many hands. FEWER "decision makers". Greater the sense of involvement and "ownership" of the benefit derived.

    First honor will go to John Oder, and rightfully so. 20" Greaves Klusman:

    20" Heavy Greaves Klusman

    I'm not sure if I should list manufacture as Greaves Klusman, or Greaves Machine Tool Company.

    Maybe The Greaves-Klusman Tool Co/Greaves Machine Tool Company

    John could answer that if he has a preference.

    I think that is a great choice those machines are interesting, everyone should see that several times. I think its too bad " The Edgar" was not made here.

    All you need.

    Shop floor, foreman doing tasking would have said "run it on the Greaves".

    Much as tasking to a K&T mill was "run it on the Milwaukee."

    I got a long way to go searching through the threads yet. It'll take me some time.

    But I found a thread of yours is a real good example. The vertical head thread, I'd like to add it to the B & S if we can get squared away on whatever the issue is with imgur and the pics.

    I will get right on that with photos, I also had to set the head up in a Cincinnati cutter grinder to grind the 40taper, it was not done during war production, I will have that by 2035.

    Its the weight of that cloud again, it now says I have bad breath!

    My preference is what is cast into the head stock.

    Greaves Klusman, or short for Greaves Klusman Tool Company

    And thank you for your consideration

    On Edit:

    Error corrected - thanks Bill
