    I use to live and work on Maui... for about 6 months of that in 2007 I lived upcountry on the side of Haleakala in the town of Makawao, and drove about an hour to work every day across the island to...

    I pretty much cowboyed the conversion. I used a serrated 8" contact wheel from an old Square Wheel grinder, and turned it to fit the Abrasive machine's hub. I used the old tension wheel from that...

    I have one too. It's an Abrasive Model 3B, 8x24" mechanical automatic surface grinder.

    Wow, that place has some good lathes but I agree their prices are completely nuts! Plus the way the pics are taken and the machine specs listed, it seems like they have little idea of what they...

    Yes they are hard to come by... and pretty sought after by smiths right now. This is quite an enormous hammer for any small operation to own and operate... just the rigging and installation costs...

    I think that price is much closer to practical. It's still not a sell-it-right-now price, I'd bet... and it's not going to help that it's not under power and is partly disassembled. For $25K a...

    It's probably gone already (5 day old posting) and who knows what's actually wrong with it, but for $500 I know I'd be willing to haul it home and figure it out later. Of course, I live too far...

    Cool! Think you'll be setting it up for use soon? Have some projects planned yet to put it to work on?

    I quite often enjoy what you have to say Joe, but damned if you didn't just hit this nail right on the head... well said.

    That looks to be a mechanical auto table. I have an old mechanical 8x24" surface grinder, works great. There's a lot that could be wrong with one of these, though...

    I'm under the impression that you're maybe picking up that Hendey T&G lathe that was featured in a "dropped and broken" thread here a while back? If so, I'm very happy someone has taken up the...

    Ugh how sad... if I'd been within 600 miles I'd have come and got it.

    I don't know specifically about the pin... but "silver steel" is a pretty common grade in Europe, fairly high carbon plain steel, similar to W1 water hardening tool steel found in the US, to my...

    Depending on where it is (I'm going to be over in coastal WA next week) I'd make an offer. I guess PM me if that's an option?

    Yeah, I'm thinking 1.5" thick steel plate under it all. That repair... I guess they could have used shorter scab plates but not by much! :O

    Jeez... those hammers and that anvil! Beaudrys are the best mechanical hammer that was made. I love mine. Also Trentons, along with Fishers, are my favorite anvils...

    Thanks for the continued input, guys! I received a nice chunk of 1" thick 90A durometer polyurethane rubber sheet in the mail the other day... I'll be machining a new friction disc from it when time...

    Joe, the material you speak of sounds a lot like paper micarta or phenolic. Being a knifemaker, I use phenolic from time to time, in linen, canvas, and paper versions... it's great stuff for...

    Interesting... that pattern board appears to be a species of high durometer, dense polyurethane sheet. In small pieces I'm finding it available through McMaster, but looks as though smaller, cheaper...
  21. Friction disc recommendation, huge old GE camelback drill?

    I have recently acquired an ancient and huge Gould & Eberhardt camelback drill... 37" swing, powerfeed and backgears etc. I'm currently in the process of getting it mechanically operational, prior...

    Not to offer unsolicited advice, but $2000 for a tiebar with a burnt out motor, play in the spindle bearings, and no longer a drive to the leadscrew, sounds wildly optimistic... and that's as a...

    There's a Fastenal in Hermiston, OR... I don't know if you have one near you, but Fastenal is a cheap and effective way to ship machines of this size. Just sayin'.
