« Part 1: Disassembly Part 2 of Oliver 232 restoration series Part 3: A little motor work »

I have been working feverishly on this saw. I have spent quite a few hours wire brushing the castings getting ready for paint. After the majority of the paint and old filler was removed I had to borrow a lift to get the trunnion casting removed. It weighs about 100# and not wanting to injury an already sore back I felt it was safer.

I have applied 2 coats of filler and am ready to do the final sanding. Here she is as of today.

The motor came apart fairly easily. I am replacing all the bearings in the machine. Even though it appears the motor bearings were replaced at some point I do not know the history of the saw and being that the motor is out and the saw apart to me its cheap insurance.

Removing the arbor half did make me pucker a little. Last thing I wanted to do was bend or crack it. But it came off without having to place a wrench on the puller. I screwed it in by hand and off it came.

I removed the key and went after the front cover.

Then came time to remove the front cover and rotor. Slid out without an issue

More puckering

All done. New bearings have been ordered and should be here in a few days. Will update soon as I start painting!!

Thanks for all the photos. It’s like being there..except for the sweat and anguish. Can’t wait for more.

What a hog – in a good way. That beast couldn’t vibrate if it had to!

I am still in the planning stage for the mobile base. I think it will be 1/4” thick 2” angle iron welded at 45 degrees at the corners. To that I will weld a bracket for 4” heavy duty casters.

That thing is a beast! I can relate to the puller pucker. I ruined a DC motor once. This is fantastic.
