    I'm new to metal working but like my old iron woodworking machines so well I started finding metal machines too heavy for most to deal with. The Pacemaker certainly qualifies. When you get used to...

    This thread will make me more careful so I'm appreciative. Dave

    Assuming your starter is a size 1, go on ebay and look for a 1A06 AB coil. They run $10-20. The first digit is size so a size 0 starter will be 0A06 for a 220v coil. Either 220 or 110 will work. ...

    Look at my post #24. The coil is rated for 440V or 380v @50hz. the reference to 220 is irrelevant. You want a 220v @ 60 hz coil. Dave

    Probably not your first rodeo but keep in mind that trailer weight limits generally include the weight of the trailer. You also need at least a Class 4 hitch and good brakes. I hit a deer with a...

    Here is your starter from my pile of stuff. Keep in mind the coil will need to be changed as well to either 110 or 220. 1A06 I think is the 220v version. The heater chart is not clear but they...

    That starter originally used N style heaters. The N style were a little problematic, mainly if tripped and reused so many starters were switched to the later W style by removing the post in the...

    For those of us who work in Whitworth machines, the 10-32 is a life saver. The BSF 3/16-32 bolts with rounded off heads because someone didn't have the proper wrench can be replaced, at least in...

    The old Delta wedgebed is a design bought from Yates. While a great design, the wedge isn't nearly as important on a 20" machine. Back in the old oiron days, an 18" planer was considered light duty...
  14. K and T CHL and 2CH, compared to Cincinnati 2ML and 2MI

    I have a Rambaudi UR60 and use the vertical 95% of the time but am always looking for a horizontal if it has the low lead, mainly because I like old rare iron and there are no parts for Rambaudis. ...

    I would consider another direction. I started with woodworking as a hobby, found I preferred old machines to new, for most not all. Got into metalworking to help make parts for the old machines and...

    24" SCMI spiral head planer on Woodweb in CO. I'd buy it in a heartbeat over a Taiwan machine. Dave

    Those bearings are available for 200-250/pair on ebay. The important thing is the 15 degree angle and the P4 ( ABEC 7 ) designation. Dave

    I took everything apart today. The bronze plates look to have started out at .063-.064 and most were worn only to .062. A couple were at .060 so I replaced them with spares from the extra clutch I...

    If the planer is not high volume production, I'd look at a 5-6K planer ( any used Euro ) and a 4-5K single belt sander. A WB is really nice to have and even the best planer needs some final sanding....

    Reading more about Colchester lathes, it seems their Matrix clutches were instant on and made to grab quickly rather than the slower engagement of the S and B. That may be the reason for the...
