Hi all, my name is Bill and I just ran across this forum. New to woodworking and I have an issue. I bought an old Powermatic 100 planer that did not work and have been fixing. Put an end on the cord, cleaned up the switch and electrical box, and it took right off! Had to readjust everything to get it to work at all, but still won’t feed. I now realized it is missing 1 bed roller and 3 of the 4 bushings at the ends of said rollers. Does anyone have any of these they would part with or kinow where I can get my hands on some? Are parts for these even available? Also picked up a Powermatic model 30 belt and disc sander, and 1948 delta milwaukee band saw at the same time. Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can offer. This looks like a great forum.

OWWM.org is where you want to be, 1Runamuck.

I had a vintage nameplateless planer once and the bedroller bearings were milled from aluminum. With an oil hole. Worded fine; they travel slowly, But the owwm folks will be much more help that this.

Welcome to the forum. And that 1948 bandsaw is known to explode and the National Exploding Bandsaw Risk Abatement Commission has asked that all these model saws be sent directly to me, immediately, and I will mitigate the risk using classified methods. Sorry to bring you that heartbreaking news but hey, it’s just the way it is. We have your personal wellbeing written right into our mission statement.

Kindly,

AWWW.. the old NEBRAC line… Now Now Lee everyone knows their techniques are DANGEROUS and old school. 1Runamuck I suggest you use the SITMI organisation. (send it to me instead)

Try here for some info as well as the excellent suggestions above. As for parts. Talk to the folks over at Lee’s suggestion.

I have that bandsaw It is great any new delta 14” parts will fit ( that’s what Delta told me years ago when I got it) I have replaced some parts not many.

all of the above is good advice. The other thing I do when looking for parts to some of the old machines is set up a followed search on ebay. I’ve had pretty good luck buying and selling parts off these old machines. It does take patience though.
