Very Old Saw Bench - the restoration has begun.

Post by bluewater1150 on Thu Feb 16 2012, 16:09

I got this in bits from the forestry at Kielder - the rebuild has begun. I've started with the 'moving parts' - the theory being get everything running smoothly 'away from the table' and then re-assemble the whole saw bench table.

The first photo is of the removed belt pulley guide assembly - with no guide and a seized slider.



The 2nd is of the saw blade casing and drive shaft - as removed from underneath the main table.



3rd is the casing with drive shaft still in place and the two pulleys removed, the inner one was running free and the outer one was solid on the shaft - completely
the reverse of what it should be.



4th is the casing with the shaft removed - it took a gallon of petrol to clean the old 'grease' out - no bearings on this shaft/casing, but a great fit with v.little play.



next is the belt pulley guide, the slider is now all freed off with 2 x new guides c/o the local Blacksmith



Last is the shaft refitted back into the fresh grease packed casing and both pulleys fitted, loose and drive working as they should - the drive closest to the table and support casing, the loose pulley outboard of everything.



Next thing is to get the cast saw bench table home to see what is next in the re-build.!!

Cheers
Elliot
