Haven’t done a whole lot lately, finished all the wire brushing and removing of the old pant and rust. I had to stop using the wire wheel when there was more wires flying off then paint. I got my use out of the $3 wire wheel. There’s still some paint in those hard to reach places but It’s better than it was.
Now I’m going to give everything a good wiping with some mineral spirits and tape off what’s necessary and go to town with the spray cans.
I took some pictures of the tag on the motor for DavidRoberts to look at and for my own knowledge. It still needs to be cleaned up under there. And I’m missing the back door for the base but I have some 1/4” Birch that is looking good for that. And David I had plugged it in and used it prior to the restoration with 110v and it worked fine.
The tag says Rockwell Manufacturing Company, DUAL VOLTAGE SINGLE PHASE MOTOR – TO REVERSE ROTATION INTERCHANGE T5 & T8,
MODEL: 62 -010
It’s stamped 1/2 HP, 115/230 VOLTS, 1725 RPMS, 60 CYC, 7.8/3.9 AMP, 56-3 FRAME, SCS -TYPE, CLASS B,
I saw a newer Jet 6” jointer on CL this morning, $250, barely used, open base. Sometimes I wonder…Is it worth it…I guess mine might be more solid and look cooler. Help me out here, this is a good investment of time and money, right?
