    Little late to reply. But using a hand held impact driver can help as well. You can get that at an auto parts store for maybe $20. Hold it in your hand like a chisel. Hit it hard with a hammer,...

    Sorry but your new switch is broken. That center contact needs to be there for 3 phase, but the black arms that hold it appear to be broken off.

    Your old one, that center detail you are pointing...

    That looks a suspiciously like Northern Tools in South Houston, like one exit from Monroe off 45. Pretty sure they won't be selling your grinding wheels. :D

    When i saw the thread title, I was thinking that. I was guessing it must stiff or kind of bindy toward either end of the screw. Reading the replies, guessing you'd adjust it to be almost snug at the...

    I prefer rotary phase converters. I'm aware that the idler motor is running, but it's pretty quiet since it doesn't actually drive anything. A rough general rule, use roughly twice the size hp...

    Your headstock bearing surfaces look really reaaly nice, big plus there.

    You don't necessarily need to pull base for motor out. But there's a check you can do. Lay on the floor on your back....

    Besides a pin to locate it, and weather you disturb the current location, or not, you most likely will need to do a bit of alignment anyway. Time, wear, cast iron distortion etc. To get everything...

    To answer your question directly, might try Ted on this forum, or a bearing company using the bearing number with maybe a cross reference depending which bearing company.

    Electric chucks operated off DC voltage. If you really wanted to use it, you could jumper a car battery to it to see if it had any response, but the actual voltage range for true operation is higher....

    For $300 its kind of hard to wrong, even if you have to scrap it you'll get something back. But you most assuredly will have to do at least a half assed clean, lube and inspection prior to operation....

    I'd say the loudest gear noise from my 16 are the reverse tumbler gears, or their contact with gear on spindle. Though not over bearing by any means. I have a 2 speed motor, 1800 and 900 rpm,...

    To get shaft out #55 would have to come out. Then with nut loose you would be slipping shaft out, away from nut, and gears would fall off shaft one at a time.

    Couple of options: 1) leave it...

    Id prefer getting it all apart just to get old dirt and debris out, however you don't need to get shafts and gear assemblies out to change felts. Also you can clean and lube while assembled.

    I roll up a rag and jam it between gear teeth, so long as it's not crazy tight. Tighten it the same way. Just reverse when done and get any rag fragments out of teeth.

    I just lifted one myself. Under a 100 lbs guessing, as I struggle a bit with another part I lift that's about 105 lbs. Im thinking the apron is between 75 to 90 lbs.

    That being said, pulling the...
