    At some point, G&E ended up in bed with Norton, my 1964 G&E has Norton on the ram as well. VM has a PDF manual for that vintage of shaper too.

    Assuming condition is ok, with what tooling is there, it is maybe worth $2200, at most............As said, variable speed belts can get pricey.
    Wouldn't be a bad little lathe for the home shop.

    We bought an abandoned shop out in St Louis some years ago, roof had been bad for some time, water standing on the floor. Got about three trailer loads of machines out of there. Most everything...

    Buy it for what it all weighs, then you don't lose much but time. I'd say there is 5-6k of machines on there. Not sure that I'd get too excited over the trailer............can't see it well...

    I was looking to convert an old oil designation for a pretty recent vintage G&E shaper. The manual gave some Saybolt numbers, that I did a search on................looks like a ISO 100 oil might be...

    Without a good look at the rest of the lathe, I'm afraid that shimming the tailstock for wear, is the most practical. Seems like the carriage would be showing much more wear.

    That much weight, not balanced over the "sweet spot" makes for a rough ride. Too much weight forward will make the trailer jerk..........too much toward the back will make it sway. With some...

    It has always seemed to me, that felt embeds with swarf and becomes a "lap". I wondered why brass or plastic scrapers weren't used more often.

    We had a place kind of like it in town, when I was a kid.........building was closed in better. Only took him @ 20 yrs to get that junky.

    I logged in the other night, hadn't been on in quite a while, anyway, it wouldn't let me access the "files" for some reason.

    The teeth on my Racine look pretty good, but they slip, when it goes to lift. I have been pondering how to deal with it. No doubt the large size of it doesn't help.......it is bigger than the other...

    IIRC, it cuts on the backstroke, so should "lift" on the forward stroke......completely disengaging from the rack on the cut stroke.

    Cut rate and descent are based on weight of the arm and...

    It does appear that your cam is missing, from what I can see. I've got a Racine, of similar vintage, the blade lift isn't very satisfactory from my experience. I am wanting to try and make a new...

    Does yours have the original crank speed adjustment or is it the later "lever adjustment" to change speed?

    I'd give it a good inspection, check bearings and journals, wouldn't rebuild the bottom end unless warranted. Take the head apart and clean the valves, they get gummy from years of oil residue and...

    I've got an old lineshaft 16 inch running off a 1 1/2 HP motor. It will have to have the rpm dropped down to about 200 rpm by some means of speed reduction.
