    Took about 4 hours to get it apart.

    Half the fence parts cleaned and ready for paint prep.

    I only found one actual broken part. One of the teeth on the hand wheel gear for tilt was broken off. Didn't notice it in usage, just take it next door and have the tooth fixed.

    Trying to order new stickers, and see what parts I can still get. Need to hunt down the horrible manual.

    Darcy,
    I have the manual and sliding table setup for these. It’s not much of a manual and it’s from the older version of the saw. I don’t know if they had a English version for the machines from the 70s. If I get your PM I will send what I have.
    And still would like to get your spindle copied.

    Been busy, hauled a wadkin EEC resaw, couple 12" jointers, a 24" BS, a 24" jointer, 16" jointer, 3 Oliver TS, and a PM 24" planer home last week, had parts show up for several other machines as well.

    Almost all parts are clean, all hardware is done, some painting has been started. Today I had time to get the arbor apart and the motor apart, between trying to help my kids make bike ramps for the shop, shipping equipment and keeping a couple guys busy working.

    Hi Mike,
    I use Irfanview 64 - this is free program for viewing and editing photos.

    Sorry, I take all my pictures not in landscape orientation, basically because they all go on IG and that's how it's set up for pictures. This forum turns them sideways.

    That's one of the weak points of this forum software. It's the only forum I visit that has this issue.

    I had a chance to do something on this, mostly because I put my new benches in my way and needed to try them out. 20190608_144328.jpg

    Once my guy gets this arbor copied for Joe, I can put that and the motor back.

    I believe these things were assembled upside down and flipped over after the base was put on.

    Darcy looks really nice.

    Is there any need to grease the worm gear?

    I’m loathing compressing that spring and getting the strut put back in my machine.

    Mark has outlined a fairly safe way to do it but I’m still nervous. Anything can go wrong at anytime and with a spring like that preloaded removing it from a arbor press with that shim in there and handling it while I get it back in the machine has me with some pretty cold feet.

    I probably look back and wonder what I made a big deal about. Well hopefully......
