My son is moving an old shop and will not be using some of this old equipment. I’m not sure if these have any value, or to who I would direct the question (I’ll post it on owwn as well). I’d love to see it back up and working, but I don’t have the room and to much is missing.

If there is any interest, please PM me. Otherwise they are just cool to look at.

Here is the table saw

What’s left of the drive system (I hope to have some more pictures)

Cool to look at, but pretty scary to think of actually using it.

To think, at one time they were state of the art equipment. Now considered dangerous. Makes you wonder what we take for granted today that will be seen this way in the future.

Love the glimpse into history.

would be worth checking with local museums and the likes. these should really be preserved and put on display for future generations (and ours)

Don I don’t know if you follow Richard McGuire’s blog entitled ‘The English Woodworker’, but he recently moved and put back into operation some lovely old line shaft machinery. Check it out:

Thanks Andy. I hadn’t seen that site. I subscribed to it.

I posted this over on owwn and the moderator deleted it. Another reason I love LJ,s.

I would love to figure a way to see this working again.
