    Sounds like a problem that could be solved by a trip or 2 to the industrial supply house.

    There is a fine line between too much talking, and not enough. I think the vids with no talking are just as bad as the blabber mouths, for crying out loud, say something:skep:

    In europe the coach dogs were used to run with the stage coaches, they are endurance runners that can easily run 20 to 30 miles per day. They were also quite adept at clearing the roadway of...

    Sorry to hear it is that bad, hopefully someone can use the parts.

    It dates back further, the breed is 1000+ years old, how long have firetrucks been around? In europe they were called coach dogs, in America they were re-named dalmatians and it is here they became...

    I would say deafness in any dog is a flaw, but yes they can still be trained. OT- How many of you know why dals are associated with firetrucks? No cheating using google!

    Start with a precision machinist level, once level you can think about adjusting tailstock if it needs it. Right now you are just guessing.

    How badly damaged? Broken castings or just bent/broken knobs? Might help if you posted a few pics.

    I'm mildly interested, but have other commitments and could not get to it for 3-4 months, so if...

    Tried finding a video clip of it, but I'm imagining it might be something like the trade show scene in "Lord of War":D

    Met a guy years ago in Austin Tx with a construction business, he bought an old fire truck and converted it to a work truck, it was not long before he had a dal riding co-pilot:)

    Another option for unloading (its still not clear if you found a 3/4t truck) is to get a tow truck to lift it off, from there just roll it in on pipes.

    I looked at UCR site and found that collection, wondering if you might know how to search it?

    Oh well, another almost fruitless search, I did...

    So would that be an under-mount, rear-mount, or old line shaft machine with an over-mount motor, your pictures are not clear enough to see:toetap:

    Sounds like you've got it figured out, slap a 5hp...

    It was an other than SB 12x36, sold it when I moved the shop.

    60 gallon tanks make great BBQ pits:D, I kid you not, in Texas I can sell an old rusty tank faster, and for more money, as a bbq pit project, than as a compressor tank.

    Yes I did.

    Edit: If the question in post above was for me, I honestly don't remember frame size, motor was Leeson, had to relocate start/run capacitors to make it fit.

    My old lathe had a 1/2hp motor originally, I replaced it with a 1.5hp 1ph motor, and still had problem with centrifugal switch at high rpm with a load, my choice was lighter cuts, or slow down...

    Lots of old lathes have the reversing drum switch located where you had to reach over machine to operate it, I've used many like that, maybe not the safest, but never sucked me in either. You can...

    Unless the old lady has the rest of the compressor in the garage, and its free, its not really worth putting a motor and pump back on that tank, you could buy a complete one cheaper than the parts to...

    As a cargo trailer owner, my advice is build some long fork extensions, or get a different trailer. Without making a whole day job of it, I see no way to remove the ramp, hinges are all welded, maybe...

    On my machine, if I recall correctly, it was 1.7 to 1 ratio, the boston gears are 2:1, ring gear is is 1/4 or 1/2" smaller in dia, so pinion gear will need to ride slightly further out, I think a...

    If you were not so far away, I'd be all over that, free heat would be a bonus!:D

    With a proper mechanic, they can take some serious abuse! Although I do kinda agree on the re-torque issue. Probably does not help that they have a crazy torgue, then loosen x# degrees, then...
