Just refinished my POWERMATIC model 10 Mortice machine drilling jig. Been using this for thirty years
And decided to refinish it . One of my jigs that make me stand back and say , yep, that sure did work out nicely . I drill both of my 1”holes in the barstool legs with a offset block to pair up the holes . I did make another vac box for it . I would like to know if anyone with a POWERMATIC model 10 , has a wheel setup for it. My other Mortice , THE UNION , by Gallmeyer and Livingston , has a nice set up with fold down handle ( Which drops wheel and lifts machine , easy pull)
I like to roll my machines outside and not have to use vac system. This ( THE UNION , machine) was definitely my go to machine. Built in the thirtys and is my smoothest finest machine . Having to downsize my shop and having to part with this is not easy. Have to keep the powermatic because I only
Own 51%, of it . If I can figure a good wheel system for it , I would enjoy it much more . It is so nice , wheeling a machine out under cover and be away from the vac system noise , better light , birds singing , and doing a couple hours of making parts
For a barstool order.
