    Thanks Larry,
    If I can get it apart, I'll learn how it really works.
    Good theory on the Geneva.

    I'm cross posting this here as maybe some of the Boring Mill folks on this forum can speak to this.

    I'm looking for information on the operation of these units, and/or possibly an operation-owners manual?

    I googled to no avail, there seems to be nothing out on the web about these units. The...

    OP....while you're waiting and down without a machine, go by one at Harbor Freight. Use it for 90 days and return it if you don't like it.
    If it fails in that time, take it back and they'll give...

    Maybe slightly smaller solid bar stock wouldn't be much different in price than I beam? Added mass can't be bad?

    I emailed him already, but then decided to pass on the shear.

    Your shear looks to be about the same age as my 6' 14ga Niagara No. 272. What model is yours and what capacity? Have...

    OK, was thinking the Babbitt was in the big end of the connecting link. You 'could' pour it in place, but did you say you think the shaft is rough? Also you'd need to 'smoke up' the shaft with carbon...

    If you could turn the shaft, could you press on or loctite on a thin wall bushing? I have Babbit, and got lucky on 2 jobs I did with it. If you'd really like to get it back working, post a pic of...

    What's wrong with it?
    I do have a Niagara 6' 14ga shear that's good for thinner gauge materials. And it would be quicker and possibly neater than plasma if you were cutting narrow strips. I suppose...

    If you didn't find that problem, the turret would have been another. The turret design on those machines was a total POS with constant problems.

    Yes, I've heard of being able to use an open sided shear like scissors as you say. Didn't look to see about how wide a piece could be cut off that way. Given the size, some jockey probably thought...

    It's called sarcastic humor. Just a bit of 'ribbing'. It's in response to your 'put it back' comment which provides no useful input to this thread.

    I'm disappointed.

    Yep, I think along it's history, some jockey thought this machine looked plenty heavy and able to cut 1/4".

    OK, I had another look. This time I remembered to take a tape measure instead of having to use a stick laid end to end, then guess the width. Model is 642, and the 'catalog number' stamped on the...

    I'm totally dumb when it comes to sheet metal fabricating. But it seems when standard sheets come in 4 x 8 and 4 x 10 sizes, the first thing a guy would wanna do is get it in the 48" (minimal) or...

    My small Niagara jump shear is 31" wide.....not 36. But I guess 36 wouldn't help a guy cut a 4x8 sheet either.

    So I found this old Shear-in-the-weeds.....

    And it interests me mildly. The tag says 10 BWG which is a wee bit thinner than 10 gauge USG. I'd be a lot more interested if it was 48" width not 42". I'm probably not the only guy wondering why the...

    I don't think I ever have told a customer or had one ask. Maybe a tire kicker or two did years ago. Usually if they ask, they can't afford it.
