Getting close. Donovan sent me a smaller pulley to slow the drive down some.

I am also going to have to open up a section of my ceiling to mount the upper part

A vfd would be goofy on this thing. It crossed my mind, for a second...

PrestigeR&D 02-02-2015 04:19 PM

I will put one on my lathe.

Put the iron center in the top, sanded it down and refinished it.

That looks awesome

Am i crazy? How the heck do you have the time to do all these restoration projects, run your business, and raise a family. Its all i can do to keep up with work and family. My shop is a mess. I need to take some productivity lessons from you. :thumbsup:

Strain is hung, things have been figured out, blades made and it is running.

Still have a couple things to do, new air pump and material hold down foot, but I should be able to make some test cuts soon.

WarnerConstInc. 02-19-2015 01:28 PM

It's location in my shop is not real good for picture taking, but oh well.

Found some 1/4" 4tpi band stock today and made up some new blades.

Cuts a fair bit quicker, especially when switching from across the grain to with it.

WarnerConstInc. 02-22-2015 01:56 PM

Starting to get a little better at running this thing. Still have a few little quirks to iron out.

I tried one with a jig saw, it was ok. It won't work on a modern scroll saw (can't cut that thick) you couldn't get the sharp points on a cnc.

It could be done by hand with a bow saw is the only other way I could think of.

I had one person keep telling me to cut it open and use a bandsaw then glue it back together. I thought that was a dumb idea.

I have a few larger projects for it as well, think barge board scroll work and larger fret work on porches.

This was probably the hardest machine for me to figure out how to set it up. There is really nothing out there about them.

Some literature says it would cut up to 14" thick material.:eek:
