1939 Walker-Turner Driver Line Drill Press Series 700This is my latest restoration job. It took me quite a while tocomplete but I’m very happy with the results.Unique to this drill press is the fact the shaft has 4 sets of ball bearings..You talk about smoooooooooth running.. It’s excellent!Read the OLD brochure for it! I’ve advertised it now for $300.00. I sell these pretty quick.My last one was a 1948 Duro Drill Press Model SF3083 and it was gone in the first 24 hour...
Please be guessing what Lazy Larry is up to now… here is a lamination that I started today for a new found friend, Scott… Closer pic. One more. I added a little turps to highlight the colours… Dimensions are 1500 mm long but 50 mm square… each piece is 10 mm thick…Translation…5 feet … 2 inch….3/8 inch…. This will be glued up and then shaped into the final product… Let us see who can come up with the correct answer &...
I found these table legs at a “repo” property I was inspecting for the bank. They were tossed aside for trash. When I picked them up for a closer look, I couldnt believe how heavy they were. I have been looking for some wood to make a couple mallet heads and thought these would work pretty well. I have no idea what wood this is, but it is very dense and heavy. I will be getting some handle material in the next couple days.
Well, the drill press is mostly completed. The only thing I need to do is fabricate a cover to hide the belt and power cords. Not exactly a match to the original color, but now it looks like a tractor! Next project is to build a cart, this thing is to heavy to move around by lifting it. Who ever had this before really used and abused it! Someone welded a T handle onto a bolt to make it easier to position the table. Used an old extension cord for the wiring.
Called Timbedwolf and finally ordered a decent blade for my Central Machinery BS. 3/8 AS 6TPI. This should smooth out the cuts and make me sand less.
Like I stated in my last posting, I picked up a 1949 Delta 14” Band Saw last night for $150. I should be able to make a couple bucks on this one. I also just picked up two 1950’s Delta 1460 12” Wood Lathes from a friend that need a little cash, Paid $400 for both. More then I wanted to pay but it helps a good friend and as long as I can make my money back I’m OK with it. Should take about 2 weeks to get these out of the garage… I hope. Started with $2695 minus $5...
First of all, I went to 4 yard sales last weekend and didn’t find squat. So today, my wife and I were coming back from the grocery store and we saw a sign near our house that said “Moving Sale – Furniture, Tools.” So we followed the signs to the sale and I looked around, really hoping to find a circular saw or a router. They said some other guy wiped them out of the tools, but they still had a couple of pipe clamps and he said I could have them both for 5 bucks. ...
I’m still working on the wheels.Now they’re round and crowned. Also I’ve formed the drive pulley.I tore apart two old treadmills, and used one as a temporary motor to spin the wheel while shaping it. I have what will probably be the final motor on the bandsaw, but I used the treadmill motor for its variable speed. I kept it fairly slow since I have zero wood turning experience. It took awhile to get the wheels round, but I think they turned out alright.Next steps are to ...
The Problems I am having with my Shop Fox Dust Remote.
Hi guys, look what kind of trouble you have all put me into: 777 days and $57 later, this is where I am now. Buying expensive drill bits. And I’m loving it! The guilty one concerning the purchase of this monster 3 1/4” Forstner bit is Al, aka Boxguy, because of this . He made me realize that jewelry drawers can be as simple as a round hole in a wood chunk, which made me redesign a part of one of the jewelry boxes I’m currently working on. Hence this mon...
