I took the cover off to observe the action of the Reeves drive and found the driving pulley on the motor does not get real skinny when you adjust the driven pulley real wide.

Origin of one of our Woodworking Tool Companies - 16 replies

This is true. I looked it up. If you were in the market for a watch in 1880, would you know where to get one? You would go to a store, right?

Well, for about 500 towns acr...
