  1. Some Peiple Should Not Be Allowed to Repair Machines

    John -

    I have to ask - did those two ever do work for the Buffalo, NY school system? If not it might have been a relative.

    I started tearing this down in January and then got a bit side...
  2. What Grease To Use

    These are pictures of the back gear housing and the top of the spindle housing.

    You can see the top of the gearbox and the shaft where the phenolic gear is installed. You can also see the...
  3. More Progress

    Got enough done that I will post some new pictures and have a question.

    After letting the Permatex #2 set for 2 days I filled the gear box last Wednesday. So far so good and no leaks on the gear...

    Jholland -

    Great post. I'm curious - the one tanker shown seems - at least to me - to somewhat resemble the 'whaleback' bulk ships that were built on the Great Lakes around the same time frame....

    Gut wrenching decisions are at all levels, from the lowest to highest. But it probably helped Truman make that decision having been a battery commander in WW1 and knowing exactly what the cost would...

    Bill / Doug -

    Well, there is NY and then there are those of us from the sticks. And I have good friends who live down in the City.

    I've been to some fairly remote parts of this planet, as well...

    John -

    Remember that exactly. Fall 1966 freshman course - can't remember the name, all engineers had to take, FORTRAN. IBM 1400 series punch card system (can't remember exact model) where you...

    I live 30 miles from this one - and I'm with Doug. I'd be amazed if he gets that much but who knows.

    Maybe one of the extremely rich NYC refugees who have reportedly moved into the area since the...

    John -

    Thanks. I spent about 7 years of my life as a computer programmer - back in the days of 370 assembler and B-52 G/H computers (1979 version, not the new ones) before I managed to escape. ...

    Finally got the gear box all back together and installed on the machine.

    Pictures below should be self explanatory, show everything with the work completed except for the covers and what it looks...

    That is very interesting. But the painting contractor sign in the picture sure sounds (at least to me) like a Brit outfit although the address is Paris.

    Figure I would update and show a couple pictures in case anyone else is looking for information some day.

    Got it all cleaned up and started reassembly. I removed everything except the one pin and...

    Bob -

    I'm 70 and got hearing aids a year and a half ago - should have done it much sooner (for both my wife and grandkids), but that is another story, fighting with the VA took a couple years,...
  15. John - I'm guessing both these seals were...

    John -
    I'm guessing both these seals were original just based on how brittle they are. Finding them should not be a problem - I just have to go 20 miles either west or south to get to a bearing...
  16. John - Took me longer than I thought but...

    John -

    Took me longer than I thought but finally got everything in the gear box and spindle housing torn down - maybe - but I'm open to some advice. Pictures below. I followed the procedure in...

    John -

    Thanks - and thanks for rotating the pictures. I did not notice that until I posted and was too lazy to go back in. I did not try and clean any of the old sealant yesterday - was end of...
  18. Quill Feed Gear Box

    I got tied up back in February. Then the virus hit and our two grandkids were with us for 45 days - easier for us to have them with their parents work situations. But they went home last Wednesday....

    NYC was not the only one. I wrote what amounted to my master's thesis on the container port operation in Portsmouth, VA back in 1972. The major break bulk ports (that was the old...

  22. Brit versus US English

    In 1991 the plant where I worked got a major contract to integrate (design/make all the electronic sensor/weapons systems work) an Anti Submarine Warfare helo for the Brits. As a result we sent a...

    John and Lott have nailed the best uses, in my opinion, with one additional example from my experiences. That one being in the case of wanting to make sure a tool is not left somewhere not desired,...

    As one guy I used to work with would say 'everybody has a place, but with some it is harder to find the right place'. We all have different gifts.

    Like many others, I'm sure, my wife and I always collected a couple when the kids (and now grandkids) were small so they could see the process. My one sister in law spent 37 years or so as an...
