Phasing out of business. Nothing lasts forever, including myself. I will be offering items that I never intended to part with. Virtually all that I have is available. You may even buy the building and most of its contents that houses my photo studio and machine shop. I get lots of compliments from visitors including tool and die makers, professional photograpers, artists, architects, etc. The building has 3 5X10' skylights (one of which is also a lightbox with 4800 watts of light available), a 3 car garage, a roof deck and a roof garden. Yes, I still buy and that is a habit I am trying to overcome.
NIELSEN TRANSFER SCREWS. Don't measure, TRANSFER, because it is more accurate. 1/2-13, 3/8-16, 5/16-18, and 1/4-20TPI sizes. $100 all.
CHAMPION AIR COMPRESSOR. I call it "deep throat" because it has a low pitch. It could also be called "old reliable" because it is obviously old and it has been most reliable. I have had it for about 20 years. I bought it at an estate sale. They do not make them like this any more. Look at the beautiful castings. It is very heavy. It was set to shut off at 175# when I bought it and I have left well enough alone. 2HP 110/220V single phase motor is newer than the air compressor. I have done nothing to it other than change the oil and clean the air filter and periodically drain it. It is very heavy. It stands about 7' tall. Made in Chicago, IL. $600.
CHRISTIANSEN, CHICAGO, IL WOOD VISE. GENUINE ANTIQUE. About 12X29X6" overall dimensions. About 12 X 2" jaws (clamping area). The 3 larger screws held the nut to the bottom of the workbench. The 3 smaller screws hold the vise to the edge of the workbench. In one image the vise is illustrated mounted on a workbench. Workbench not included. I replaced the wood nut with a Nylon nut that is far superior to the wood nut. The Nylon nut is made to much closer tolerances than the original wood nut and it will outlast the other vise components. Photos of the making of the Nylon nut may be found on my HARDINGE HOLY GRAIL web page. $300.
SHOP MADE KNURLING TOOL. Capacity to 1.45" diameter by any length. That means that any diameter round bar that will fit into an ordinary 5c collet may be knurled. You can even use it without power, but why would you when it is so much fun to watch it knurl any length that will fit in your lathe in a single pass. Outperforms any commercially made knurling tool I have used. The price is based upon its usefulness. If you do much knurling it will pay for itself quickly. It is largely hand made. Notice how the dowel axles are peened in place; very practical! Essentially, this is MACHINIST FUNCTIONAL FOLK ART. $350.
NEW 45* DOVETAIL CUTTER, 1 3/8" DIAMETER X 5/8" SHAFT. I opened the box just to photograph it for you. $60
45* DOVETAIL CUTTER, 1 3/8" DIAMETER X 5/8" SHAFT. USED. USEABLE. SHOWS VIRTUALLY NO WEAR. SEE IMAGES. IT SAYS ON THE SHAFT "INTERSTATE, HDV-570-H, 1 3/8 X 5/8, SPAIN" THERE IS ALSO AN "M" ON THE FLAT ON THE SHAFT. $40
45* DOVETAIL CUTTER, 1 5/16" DIAMETER X 5/8" SHAFT. USED. USEABLE. SHOWS LITTLE WEAR. SEE IMAGES. Other than an "M" on the flat of the shaft it is unmarked. $35
ISCAR SGFH 26-3 PARTING OR CUT OFF BLADE. This cuts really well (with the appropriate inserts installed). Appropriate inserts are Iscar GFN-3. The nominal height of the blade is 1". Actual dimensions are illustrated in the photos. No inserts included. I use a version optimized for the Hardinge L-18 tool post. It is wonderful to watch the ribbon curl off the cutting tip. Best cut off tool I have used. $100.
9" FLY CUTTER. The 3/4" shank is too large for my mill or I would keep it. With an equal amount of weight on either side of the shaft, it should be well balanced. It has an unused triangular carbide insert. The words on the shank read "B52- 9 JOS 24:15". There is also what I understand is a Christian symbol of a fish engraved in the shaft. If you can tell me what company made this I would appreciate it. $OLD.
2" by 5/16" T-SLOT CUTTER. 1" shank. Staggered tooth design. Used. Sharp. It says on the shank "FKD 2 X 5/16 HSS C08 JAPAN". Hard to find and expensive new in this size. $150.
2 T-SLOT CUTTERS, 1 3/8" by 1/4" . 5/8" shanks. Staggered tooth design. Used. Sharp. It says on one shank "513015 I. T. W., 11-23-55". It says on the other "531264 I. T. W., T1, 4-11-57". Used. Show little use. $60.
T-SLOT CUTTERS, 3/4" by 3/8" . 5/8" shank. Staggered tooth design. Used. Sharp. Like new. It says on shank "TS-2521". It says on the other "531264 I. T. W., T1, 4-11-57". $40.
~3/4" BALL CUTTER. 3/4" shank. This came in covered in plastic. Possibly it is new. Used. Sharp. It says on the shank "418088-T-5, USAF". $150.
.9" DIAMETER CENTER DRILL. 5/8" shank. Nominaly 1", actually .9" diameter. $15.
Binks air pressure equipment. I have not used this. It came in with a lot of stuff. I do not know how well it works. Sold as-is. $40.
Compressed air tools. Dotco and Thor grinders. Weaver, ARO, Ingersold-Rand drills. Onsrud turbine motor. They came in with a lot of stuff. Some work. Some do not work. Some do not have fittings for testing. Sold as-is. $100.
Welder's foot switch and lever switch. Cast iron foot switch for 2 air/gas hoses. Mostly brass hand operated lever switch for 2 air/gas hoses. I guess that the foot switch, at least, needs cleaning. I have not used these. They came in with a lot of stuff. Sold as-is. $20.
CAST IRON GRINDER. SOLID! QUALITY! FEATURES! OLD SCHOOL! 5/8" Arbor. 8" grinding wheel capacity. New 6" grinding wheel. Used 6" grinding wheel. 1/4 HP 110V 1140RPM motor geared down to about 800RPM. No burning of your tool steel with this set up. Change the pulleys to change the speed if you wish. Illuminated magnifier. Dust collection set up with your shop vac or mine as an optional extra. 3 outlets plus a switch on table top. Turn on the grinder and your shop vac comes on at the same time. Quiet running w/o the shop vac. Pleasant to work with. You will not find any cast iron tool supports on any new grinders today. And most new grinders run at too high a speed for my purposes. Most new grinders are too noisy for my tastes. Tabletop included......which means it will be properly set up for you. The tabletop sits on a cast iron stand which also includes a small table saw. That stand with table saw is available as an optional extra. In the last 3 photos I am grinding a cutter to cut 2" diameter X 2TPI threads to make a nut for the above listed wood vise. The grinder ground that hardened steel countersink I used to make the threading cutter rapidly enough for my taste. The tool steel did not get too hot to handle with the gloves on. The machine ran quietly enough for me to be able to enjoy classical music while I ground the cutter. I was happy with the final results. And now I have added 2 more images where I am grinding a rod to prepare it for threading. The important thing to note here is the position of the cast iron work support. $250
1/2-13TPI Turnbolts. These are designed to be inserted from above into T-slots. Tightening a nut onto them locks them into the T-slot. These fit the 9/16" wide T-slots in my Clausing mill table. They fit my Universal rotary table. They fit the accessory T-slot table on my 15" Delta drill press. I am willing to trade some of them for 3/8-16TPI turnbolts.
APARTMENT SIZED WORKBENCH. 28 1/2" long. 17 1/4" wide, 31" high. 1 1/2" thick. The splayed legs make this small and narrow bench stable. There is a triangular shelf under each edge. There is a vise mounted at one end.The vise jaws above the rails is 2 3/4" by 7" and opens to 6 5/8". $150.
GIANT HEAT SINK. 6' long. 8 3/4" wide. 1 1/2" thick. The top plate is .220" thick. The fins have a slight taper and are about 1/10" thick. The fins are about 1/2" on center. I guess it weighs about 50#. It is more than a heat sink. I bought it for possible use as a flat, lightweight, straight component for whatever project. $400.
STEEL CUTOFF BITS. Well ground cutoff bits; may need slight touch up of the cutting tip. 5" long, 7/16" wide, 3/4" high. These ferrous bits were cast, then ground only at the cutting tip. $15 for one. 2 for $25.
GARAGE DOOR OPENER. It is called "automatic." Several limit switches on motor. It is an older system. There is no remote included. Probably it was not even designed to work with a remote. I believe it is complete, but I am not sure, so I am only asking $40 for it. Motor tested and working.
FENCE FITTINGS or CONNECTORS. 1.7" nominal inside diameter. 78 aluminum + 5 steel connectors. A 20X13X13" apple box of them. Box with connectors weighs 53#. None appear twice. $450.
MECHANICS CREEPER. You will look like an experienced pro mechanic when you use this vintage wood creeper. 4 swiveling wheels. It works well and is comfortable. $40.
WALNUT DOWELS. About 1.354" diameter. Lengths vary from about 18" to 25". Used. Unfinished. $50.
MAPLE BALLS. About the size of a jumbo egg. The shape is between a ball and an egg. Indelible ink writing on wood will sand off. New. Unfinished. $15.
UNIVERSAL JOINTS. Curtis Johnson Mfg. Co., Springfield, MASS, USA. Catalog # C642. For coupling 1/4" to 3/16" shafts. 2" overall length. Without set screws. $25 each.
EBONY. Purchased decades ago. 20 5/8" long, 1 7/8" wide, 11/16" thick. Weighs ~2#. No splits or cracks in wood. $95
SCHWEITERMAN CENTER FINDER. Works smoothly with appropriate spring action. With 2 extra tips and conical piece. With original hardwood case. Extremely well made. $150.
2 WHEEL HAND CART. Very heavy duty. Solid rubber tires. Hardwood with steel covering going up the front verticals. Extremely well made. Rolls smoothly. Unbeatable for some things. With feet for laying horizontal. No doubt an antique. The design may be centuries old. How many modern handcarts have you seen trashed? $150.
SUPERMETRIC 5/16-18TPI THREAD CHASERS. $25.
TUBE FLARING PART. For use with tube flaring kit. 13/16" gap. Says "drop forged. Imperial Brass Mfg. Co., Chicago, USA." $15.
INTERMATIC TIMER. Designed to control multiple circuits each with it's own time schedule. Made in USA. Appears new, unused, but it is not working, so only $10 for parts or free with $100 order.
DELTA MOLDING CUTTER. Read the instructions to learn about the capabilities. Molding is expensive. Worse than that, the profile you want oftentimes is not even in stock. Make your own molding; save money and time and make it out of the wood of your choice. 4 sets of cutters, wrench, original instructions and packaging. For 5/8" arbor. Made in USA. $75
DELTA GRINDER WASHERS. Or course, they will work with any 1/2" arbor. Made in USA. $10 each.
ACRO SAFETY PARALLEL UNIT. 4" high, 10" wide, maximum of 19" long when used with the connecting bar. Made in Chicago. New, unused. $105.
Small crank handle. The hole is .250" with slot for 1/16" woodruff key. Overall length ~1 5/8". $95
Craftsman hand sander. Model 110.27810. You do not use pressure with this sander. You let the weight of the sander itself, which is not much, do the work. It is designed for producing a fine finish. Primarily it vibrates, but it does not vibrate you because you are exerting little to no pressure upon it. It does not leave sanding marks. It will not gouge your work. Of course, you will not use it to remove a lot of stock quickly. I suspect that this will sell to someone who already has one or more and wants a spare or one they can put a different type of sandpaper on.......or just to have a spare. Excellent for veneer work or finishing hardwood plywood. Utilizes a 7" by 2 5/16" piece of sandpaper. The outer wrapping on the cord is bad in at least one spot, but the inner wiring is still good. I use it as is, but it needs a new power cord. $45
Brass with steel tip plumb bob. There is a hole in the top for an eye or a string with a set screw that engages that at a right angle from the side. Weighs 1# 7 ounces. 4" long. $25
ENCO COMBINATION LIVE CENTER AND CENTER DRILL. Morse #2 taper shank. 4 center drills with adapters included. Made in Chicago. Purchased at a store at a time of transition to new ownership and new modus operadi. Shows no signs of use. Like new in original packaging with original paperwork. $225.
ACRO TRISQUARE CHECKING JIG. Click on the individual images to read what it says on each piece. A trisquare was not included with this checking jig when new, but there is a slot provided for your own prized trisquare. The 0.0001" Starrett dial indicator works smoothly but the cover glass is missing. Super accurate square block may be used to check your other items and setups. I use the jig itself to check the square of my milling machine table with the tilting spindle. Quality hardwood case with brass piano hinge. Made in Chicago. $175.
STARK 4 1/2 LATHE COMPOUND AND CROSS SLIDE + T-BOLT AND LOCK KNOB + CROSS FEED LIMIT STOP. The model 4 1/2 Stark is a 9" swing split bed lathe; the compound will work on other split bed lathes, Hardinge, Rivett, etc. The compound shows no abuse, but plenty of use. Despite the considerable backlash on both screws, this is the cleanest and best performing Stark compound I have seen and the only one I have seen available separately. Newly cleaned, lubed and adjusted. Compound T-bolts for split bed lathes are difficult to find by themselves, let alone with a compound. $500 for all. $400 without the T-bolt and lock knob. T-bolt and lock knob available separately for $150.
8" diameter facemill. Facemills allow you to work faster and achieve a better finish. The 12 carbide bits with 4 cutting tips each are extremely well retained and backed up. Designed for use on milling machines with INT 30, 40, 50 or larger spindles a customer told me; I do not know which size it fits, so measure your milling machine to determine if this will work with it. The machined center hole is designed to fit over a 2.5" diameter shaft. The four 5/8-11TPI mounting bolts are located 2" off center. 6" long by 1" wide key slot. Weighs about 25#. With a machined flat back it should be easy to adapt it to your machine. If you know specifically what machines this is designed for, please let me know. Like new, probably unused. $300.
X-axis STOP for Clausing Mills. I have a spare one. 3 part; T-nut, spacer stop block, and nut. $100.
Y-axis STOPS for Clausing Mills. Did Clausing ever make such a Y-axis stop system for their mills? If so, I have never seen one. It is a great thing to have. I used the X-axis stop system all the time; finally I got around to making a Y-axis stop system. You still have full movement, but you may quickly adjust the stops to anywhere you want by pushing a button on the quick adjust nut and sliding the nut into position. You may also screw the nut into position. $300.
BELTS for Clausing Mills. I just replaced the belts on my Clausing mill. The belts required are as illustrated. I post this primarily for your information. Those are my old belts in the new belt sheaths. New belts cost me $18 at a full service, well stocked, old time hardware store--not at a big box. The well worn, but serviceable old belts are free with $200 order.
LEAD SCREW with NUT and CRANK. Someone in Australia told me that this is a cross slide screw from a Hembrug DR-1 lathe and that it probably also fits the A.I. Hembrug Dr-133. Another item purchased from an SPI dealer. Seems to be unused. Overall length, 17.25". Length of ~5/8" diameter square threads is ~8". The divisions on the scale are .001". Each revolution of the crank is .125". The nut has 8X1.5mmp threaded hole. Note the spur gear just inside the crank. This is no doubt an European piece made for the American market. This certainly has possibilities in the construction of your own equipment. In fact, that is why I bought it; I may find a use for it. NO WEAR ON THIS PIECE. $250.
METRIC ARBOR ADAPTER, 15mm to 20mm. Another item purchased from an SPI dealer. Someone emailed: "This is for scripta single lip cutter grinder AL20, AL25 and AL34 . We sold scripta during mid 70's." Item is 33mm long. Flanges are 44mm diameter. Nut is 26mm. New-old stock. 3 available @ $65 each or 3 for $150. One assembled arbor adapter is illustrated behind a disassembled one.
BROWN & SHARPE #625 parallel guage. Newly cleaned and lubed; works smoothly. $50.
BROWN & SHARPE BENCH MICROMETER Designed to be screwed to bench. 0 to 1/2" capacity. Accurate to .0001". $60.
I recently moved all Hardinge lathes and accessories to their own page: HARDINGE & ELGIN BENCH LATHES and accessories
6" 4-JAW BURNERD SCROLL CHUCK. With inside and outside jaws. With a 3rd set of jaws. I plan to manufacture a series of wheel chucks that will mount onto this 3rd set of jaws. With chuck key. This bent chuck key did not come in with this chuck, but fits it well. With L00 backing plate mounted and ready to use. A scroll chuck automatically centers work. 4-jaw scroll chucks are rare. Because I frequently bore holes in square view camera lens boards that usually must be centered, a 4-jaw scroll chuck is a time saver for me. Hardinge commissioned Burnerd to make chucks. Burnerd chucks are at least as high quality as Buck chucks. I had used this on a Hardinge lathe with an hlvh 5c taper spindle nose. I sold the chuck to someone with the LOO backing plate. So the Hardinge 5c taper spindle nose backing plate is available and listed immediately below.
HARDINGE BACKING PLATE FOR THE ABOVE CHUCK. This is the backing plate that I used with the above 4-jaw Burnerd chuck. It worked well. 6" diameter. Although made for the 4-Jaw chuck, it probably would have worked with the 6-jaw Burnerd chuck as well. I did not try it because I had several 6-jaw chucks for Hardinge. $250
6" 6-JAW BURNERD CHUCK. With inside and outside jaws. With chuck key. With L00 backing plate mounted and ready to use, $OLD. Note that the chuck key also has an allen key on one end of the T-bar for adjusting the chuck centering screws around the middle of the chuck body. Hardinge commissioned Burnerd to make chucks. Burnerd chucks are at least as high quality as Buck chucks.
7.5" 6-JAW BUCK CHUCK. Tru-adjust. With inside and outside jaws. Note the special feature of the inside jaws that allows you to hold a dime or even a smaller item. Without backing plate. With chuck key. This chuck was $OLD. I leave this listing up because it relates to the below listed backing plate that it came in with.
BACKING PLATE for above 6-JAW BUCK CHUCK. 7.5" diameter, 2 1/4x8TPI. Came in mounted on the above Tru-adjust Buck Chuck. The dimensions of the hole spacing and the outside diameter of the central ring (used with the tru-adjust system) may be seen in the above listing. $150
LUFKIN INSIDE MICROMETER and BLADE SETTING DEVICE FOR PARKS THICKNESS PLANER. You will encounter situations where you need an inside micrometer such as this situation where I had to measure down inside this recessed lensboard. Also included is this jig I made for checking the height of blades on my Parks thickness planer--utilizing the micrometer head. This jig may be recut to fit the diameter of your thickness planer cutterhead if necessary. $200.
To avoid duplication I have moved the below items to my HARDINGE & ELGIN BENCH LATHES and accessories web page.
Dumore Tool Post Grinder #44-011. Dumore Tool Post Grinders are the standard of the industry. Has 1.25" wide by 1/4" thick T-bolt for mounting into the compound T-slot. Distance from top of compound to grinder centerline is adjustable from at least 1-2". Fitted case. 5 pulleys, #1,2,3,4 and 5. Drive belt. Spindle wrench. Spindle collet to accept 1/8" shaft tooling. 1/4" shaft grinding wheel arbor. 2 grinding wheels included. Click on images to enlarge to see motor specifications and spindle speeds. $850.
Dumore Tool Post Grinder #77-011. Distance from top of compound to grinder centerline is 1.25" minimum. Drive belt. 1/2" shaft grinding wheel arbor. Dumore spindle is part number 7x-250. 2" and 3" diameter pulleys. I mounted this on a cast iron pedestal base. I do not have a large enough lathe to use it on, so I am using it with a wire brush and with a grinding wheel for freehand work. The wire brush, the grinding wheel, the work light, the Aluminum baseplate and the pedestal stand are not included. Altough it performs wonderfully for my needs, I am underutilizing this grinder. Buy it and put it to use on a large lathe as it was intended to be used. Click on images to enlarge to see motor specifications and spindle speeds. $800.
Tool Post Grinder. Very high quality ball bearing high speed spindle mounted on a plate designed to accept a small motor. Has T-shaped bar on the bottom to mount into the compound T-slot. Distance from top of compound to grinder centerline is 1.5". $150. This need not be used as intended. I have anther tool post grinder that I am using as a super high quality pedestal mounted grinder.
POLISHING LATHE. "Alternating Current Laboratory Lathe, The S.S. White Dental Manufacturing Co., Philadelphia, PA. This must be quite old when they specify "alternating current." Great old 2 position rotary switch. 3/8" shafts, one with an internally threaded end, the other with a tapered threaded end designed to accept felt disks and other such accessories as seen on the below polishing lathe. Those levers just inside the endcaps are on high pitch threads to quickly release whatever is on the shafts. It still works great. 110V, 5.1 amps. Made in the USA. An oldie, but goodie. Actually, it may qualify as an antique. Very quiet and smooth running. $100.
POLISHING LATHE. Bought from jeweler's estate. 115V. 2 speed. 3450RPM and 1725RPM. With felt disk. Very quiet and smooth running. $150
MORSE TAPER #3 DISENGAGEABLE PULLEY. Push in on the bull nose and the pulley turns freely. Pulley accepts 3L or smaller size V-belt. Works smoothly. $30
MORSE TAPER #3 ball bearing CENTER. Revolves smoothly. 2.890" maximum diameter. $65
MORSE TAPER #3 SOLID CENTER. Does not and was not designed to revolve. 2.225" maximum diameter. $38
MORSE TAPER #3 SOLID CENTER. Does not and was not designed to revolve. There is an "N" in the trade mark, which is visible in the picture. Made in Japan. It is labeled "No. 2," however, it is a #3 shank. "U. S. A. Patent P. 480316" Diameter of 1st cylindrical step is .483". The diameter of the 2nd cylindrical step is 1.06". $40
MORSE TAPER #3 BALL BEARING CENTER. Revolves roughly. New "shield bearing number 5503" needed. Ideal Industries, Sycamore, IL. Type S. $10
MORSE TAPER #3 WITH TANG SOLID CENTER. Does not and was not designed to revolve. $30
MORSE TAPER #3 REAMER. $7
ALL 7 MORSE TAPER #3 ITEMS LISTED ABOVE. $155
SET OF 4 LATHE TOOL BIT HOLDERS: 2 straight, one left hand and one right hand. Right hand labeled "J.H. Williams, USA, TH-I-R." Left hand labeled "J.H. Williams, USA, TH-I-R." Armstrong straight labeled "Armstrong tungsten carbide tool holder No. T 1-S." Other straight is not labeled. All have shanks 1 1/8 to 1 1/4" high. All accept 5/16" square tool bits. Set of 4, $100.
LANTERN STYLE TOOLHOLDER COMPONENTS. Some unfinished. $35.
3 5/8" SQUARE SHANK CARBIDE INSERT TOOLHOLDERS. 2 by Carboloy and the 3rd one is labeled "SVHCR 102B". The 4th toolbit, by Carboloy, is welded onto the shank. All for $40.
3/4" SQUARE SHANK CARBIDE INSERT TOOLHOLDERS. By Kennametal, Kendex and the 3rd one is unknown, but the required insert is labeled on the tollholder. All for $40.
SPI TOOLING. SPI 80-573 9. Cut off tool or grooving tool. Cuts 0.040" thick kerf, 0.160" deep. Shanks are 3/8" high. I like that because I mostly use 3/8" tooling with my Hardinge lathes. I do not have to change the height on the toolholder when switching from a boring or facing operation to a cut off operation. I have tried one on steel; SWEET! NEW-IN-BOX. 10 available. $20 each.
Circular form tool cutters. These can really speed up your work. Grind your circular form cutters to the profile of your choice and go to work. The particular cutters installed on these are included with them; these cutters are both labeled 1/2-13 and are no doubt are for cutting threads--perhaps Acme or square cut threads because they are not ground to a point. The cutters themselves are worth the price if you can use them; they are no doubt factory made. Look at the base: they are designed to be adapted to whatever you wish with user made custom plates like the one you see on the right. T-bolts included. $50 each.
WW collet with drawbar. I do not know what lathe this is for so I give you the dimensions. Probably for Levin lathe or some other miniature jeweler's lathe. A watch and clockmaker said, "I think it is for a 10 mm lathe. It is for sure for a ww watch makers lathe." Impossible to find by itself. $150
JIG AND FIXTURE DESIGN (BOOK). Edited by Edwin Jones. Lost technology series, copyright 1984. Original copyright 1920. 326 pages. Jigs and fixtures are underutilized today. Jigs and fixtures can save you lots of time and free up your valuable resources like milling machines for other work. Set up a jig for a particular operation and then perform that operation on a drill press. $20 with one of the below fixture jigs or $30 separately.
Medium fixture jig or pump lock jig. Clamping range about 3.9 to 5.9". There are 5 factory made holes that will serve as drill guides + 2 reducing drill guide bushings installed in the top. There are numerous holes in the base that held various work positioners; these may be reused by you with your custom made work positioners. You can do small work on a larger fixture jig by using spacers. Quality construction in good working condition. $150.
Large fixture jig or pump lock jig. It is buried at the moment. Will list details and photos as time allows. You can do small work on a larger fixture jig by using spacers. These fixture jigs are just the basic shell of your customized jig; you must complete them for your particular use. The SWISS MADE REGLUS UNIVERSAL DRILLING JIG was the ultimate fixture jig; that was sold, but I still have some literature on it listed at the bottom of this page. The Reglus sold for more than many milling machines sell for. If you utilize them well, fixture jigs can be most valuable. I highly recommend you buy the book listed above with a fixture jig. $350.
STARRETT BANDSAW BLADE STOCK. I estimate there is about 65' remaining on the spool. 3/8" wide blade. 18 TPI. Excellent for mild to mildly hardened steel. $65.
Polycarbonate insert for Delta 14" wood or metal cutting bandsaw. It has several advantages over the Delta inserts. It is more accurately sized and sits flush with the tabletop. It is spring loaded and stays in place without vibrating and making noise. When your blade gets off track it hits plastic instead of metal. You can see through it for checking adjustment and cleaning. In the last picture is a molded pot metal insert recently bought from Delta, my Polycarbonate insert and a decades old steel insert, which is not available anymore. An exclusive GLENNVIEW product. $25.
DELTA MOTOR: 1/2HP, 3 PH, 208-220V/440V, 1725/1425RPM, 5/2.5 AMP, 3/4" keyed shaft, C66Y frame. Includes push button start/stop switch and reset switch in box. I sold the drill press to someone who needed a single phase motor. Tested. Works well. I made notes of what color wires go to what terminals on the start/stop switch. Motor plates with wiring connections are great to have; not all motors have this info. Made in USA. $150
Motor with reversing switch and foot switch. This came in with an old Hardinge cataract bench lathe with thread chasing attachment mounted on the bench illustrated at the top of my HARDINGE & ELGIN BENCH LATHES and accessories web page. It works well enough for the size threads that this lathe was designed to cut. I made a custom tool holder to cut larger diameter threads which required more power, so I replaced this 1/3 HP motor with a 1/2 HP motor. I had another reversing switch and foot switch, so I left this motor set up with reversing switch and foot switch for you. It is a lot of trouble to wire a motor with reversing switch. Every time I do it, it takes me a lot longer than I expect; it always seems like one more switched line in the reversing switch is needed--until I figure it out anew. Some motors are not even reversible. This one is all set up and ready to roll. The motor has a 1/2" shaft. The motor is 115V AC, 1725 RPM. Motor by itself, $75. Motor with reversing switch, $180. Motor with reversing switch and foot switch, $200. A 3-prong to 2-prong adapter is included with the foot switch. The foot switch is extremely convenient for use with any lathe. The foot switch and adapter are available separately for $25.
HILD FLOOR MACHINE 3/4HP MOTOR, 1 PH, 115V AC, 9 amps, 1725RPM, Model GHP-18. Very strong running motor. 12mm keyed shaft with 28mm diameter, 18mm long helical gear included. Drops into 7.750" hole. Built-in cooling fan. Made in USA. $80
LELAND 1/2HP MOTOR, 1 PH, 115/230V AC, 7.6/3.8 amps, 1725RPM with built in heavy duty switch. I used one just like it for years, then sold it with the lathe I used it with. Very strong running motor. 5/8" keyed shaft. Clockwise rotation only. Pulley not included. Made in USA. $80
5000RPM BODINE MOTOR with 288:1 speed reducer: 1/80HP, 1 PH, 115V AC or DC! .48 amps, 17.4RPM after speed reduction gearing. This was used to turn a heavy 3' diameter chrome plated drum used to dry glossy photo prints. I used such a device in the last century. It was variable speed. I connected this motor to a variac; it does indeed function as a variable speed motor. One of the brushes is missing an end cap; the brush is held in place with duct tape; simple repair that works. A threaded end cap is required for a proper repair. Made in USA. $80
The above and below motors together are $100 and include the accessories with the below motor..
1125RPM BODINE MOTOR with 288:1 speed reducer: 1/150HP, 1 PH, 115V AC, .52 amps. 5/16" diameter shaft. Made in USA. $30 The accessories someone added to the motor, the 1/2" diameter mounting post and the chuck, are an additional $20.
7" DIAMETER V-BELT TYPE 2 DOUBLE VARIABLE WIDTH PULLEY. Cast and machined aluminum. Very high quality. 3/4" diameter hole with bushings at both ends to reduce the hole size to a 5/8" diameter hole. Set screws at both ends. 2" maximum belt width. $100.
7.5" DIAMETER SPRING LOADED V-BELT VARIABLE PULLEY. Cast and machined steel. Very high quality. 3/4" diameter hole with key slot and set screw. Will accept 3/4" shaft to a depth of about 2" at pulley end. The other end is spring loaded; I am exerting a good deal of force to open the pulley to its maximum, which is at least 2". Grease fitting at the spring loaded end. $100.
12" DIAMETER V-BELT PULLEY. Cast and machined. 5/8" diameter hole with groove for key, with setscrew. Plenty of room to bore out the hole if needed. Such quality is rarely found today. Such a large diameter is also rarely found. $100.
CRAFTSMAN 18" THROAT SCROLL SAW 103.23151. 1/6 hp (plenty of power), 1725RPM, 115V motor, very smooth and quiet running. Tilting table. Adjustable blade guides underneath and above the tabletop help in making very accurate cuts. The upper and lower blade clamps have 2 screws each; this allows you to center the blade more perfectly. The saw accepts 5" standard scroll saw blades, jeweler's saw blades, jig saw blades, and files. The over arm may be removed to facilitate use as a jig saw or die filer. Mounted on steel stand with casters. I use this occasionally; it works extremely well--as well as you set it up and use proper technique. It will cut 3/4" plywood just as well as thin metal stock. The Robust construction and the hold down foot dampen vibration so that you can see well and work accurately. You may turn the blade clamps 90+ degrees in order to cut at right angles to the C-frame if necessary. Incredibly well thought out machine design. Instruction manual and parts list and a dozen blades included. I frequently use it instead of trepanning on the lathe because it is more efficient. I make a shallow 0.080" wide trepanning cut on the lathe to serve as a guide to follow on the jig saw. $250.
DELTA 14" FLOOR MODEL DRILL PRESS, older higher quality, all cast iron floor model, multiple speeds, with an intermediate pulley to allow for an even greater speed range, manual rise table, tilting table, front rod connects to rear switch, 5" spindle travel with adjustable locking stop, #2 Morse taper, 1/2" jacobs chuck, chuck key, drift pin, belt cover, smooth and quiet running. These 2 photos show one of the advantages of a floor model drill press.....the ability to work with larger items. Great drill press. You couldn't trade me a brand new one for it. This is the drill press I use most often. $600
DELTA 17" DRILL PRESS, Delta, Milwaukee, serial #49-6009, older higher quality, all cast iron floor model, 5 speeds, crank rise table, tilting table, Delta 1/2 hp, 1725RPM, 115/230V, front rod connects to rear switch, one owner until I purchased it upon that owner's retirement, always used at slowest speed, 5" spindle travel with adjustable locking stop, #2 Morse taper, 1/2" jacobs chuck, chuck key, drift pin, belt cover, work light, very smooth and quiet running. In the last 2 photos note the vise mounted to the below listed T-slot table and properly centered under the bit for a deep drilling operation. Great drill press. You couldn't trade me a brand new one for it. The secondary belt guard adds additional protection and it holds the light. Wanted for this drill press: Foot operated quill accessory. $1000
T-slotted Machine table. ~9X10.5" top, 10.5X12.5" overall. 9/16" wide slots; this will accept T-nuts that fit the Clausing 8520 or 8530 mills. Note that there are slots on the bottom for keys if needed. Unless you buy this 1st, I will, when needed for a particular job, clean this up and use it on the above listed 17" Delta drill press so that I may use the several vises, rotary table, etc. that I use on the Clausing. The drill press has a lot more space than the Clausing Mill between the spindle and the table......and the drill press table will rotate! The long slots on the sides will make it easy to mount to most anything. 1 5/8" thick. OK, I did it: I drilled and tapped 2 holes in the base and machined a centering washer. The 5/8-11TPI attaching bolt is beefy enough to hold the T-slotted table to the drill press table by itself. One hole centers the 2 tables; the other hole centers the T-slots under the drill spindle. Note that the drill bit used to bore the holes is one with a #2 Morse taper shank. I needed a 17/32" bit for the job. I only had that diameter bit in a #2 Morse taper shank. I am glad I still had the #2 Morse taper bits listed below. This T-slotted table will fit many other machines as well. It would work equally as well on my 2 different Delta 14" drill presses (with an appropriate centering washer). $175 or $125 if purchased with the above listed 17" Delta Drill press.
Machine table. 12.5X15.5" top, 5X5.5" mount with 1/2" pin and 1" OD tube with 3/4" hole spaced 3" center-to-center. This would fit the 17" Delta drill press listed above with little or no alteration. $50.
DELTA 14" DRILL PRESS, Delta, division of Rockwell, Milwaukee, serial #74-1067, older higher quality, all cast iron benchtop model, 4 speeds, manual rise table, tilting table, Dunlap 1/3 hp, 1725RPM, 115V, foot switch, 4" spindle travel with adjustable locking stop, 1/2" jacobs chuck, chuck key, work light, very smooth and quiet running. The work light is mounted in a wood block machined to fit the top of the column; easy to do and it keeps the light off your valuable table work space. I wonder about folks who buy cheap modern drill presses when they can buy fine old machinery like this. $300

QUALITY MITER GAUGE. Manufacturer unknown. 9" long. 4" wide. 3/4" X 1/2" bar fits many saw slots, including the Delta Unisaw table slots. Swings to 60 degrees either side, although it is only marked to 45 degrees. $35.
HAMMOND MACHINERY BUILDERS MITER GAUGE. I have a Hammond printer's saw. It is very high quality. This mitergauge does not work with it, however. The aluminum bar that is with it is not original. Obviously, originally a hand or thumb screw went through the slot in the top and engaged the bar, which could be installed perpendicular to the face or parallel to the face. Plus, you may swivel the miter gauge 90 degrees to either side. A set screw locks the swivel while staying out of harm's way. The aluminum bar with it is about 7" long and is sweated in place. The face is about 4" wide. The aluminum bar with it is 3/4" wide, but the slots for the original bar are only about 1/2 wide. I have been using it on 2 different machines, but I just acquired a more appropriate miter gauge for one of the machines and I seldom use the other 3" table saw. $50.
DELTA MITER GAUGE CLAMP PART WANTED. I am pointing to the wanted part in the 1st picture. Looks like a die cast part. In the 2nd picture you see it is missing on another miter gauge......replaced with jury rigged parts. Officially the latest and best version of this clamp assembly was called "DELTA 34-568 Miter Gauge Clamp." One of the similar parts with the hold down screws would probably do the job. I was wasting too much time looking for the original part, so I made my own. Works well. Feel free to copy design.
DELTA UNISAW ARBOR. The bearing is still good, but it is well used and it would make sense to replace it before installation. The arbor has 5/8-12TPI left hand square threads. You get the dished blade hold down washer and arbor nut as well. The broken casting that this arbor was housed in also has a good, albeit well used, bearing and is available with arbor at no extra charge, but will add to the shipping cost. Arbor shaft 0.675" in diameter. The pulley listed below fits this arbor. $75
DELTA UNISAW MACHINED (NOT CAST) TRIPLE SHEAVE or ARBOR PULLEY. I have seen cast pulleys worn to knife edges. This machined pulley shows no wear although it came out of a well used decades old Unisaw. It will outlast any number of cast pulleys. Also note that it is designed to fit over an arbor shaft 0.675" in diameter. $85
DELTA UNISAW SWITCHPLATE. I scanned this on a flatbed scanner; it is absolutely flat. $50
DELTA UNISAW FENCE RAIL BOLTS. The Nylon spacers concave surface mates with the fence rails. The bolts go through the rails to hold the rails to the saw tabletop. The barrel heads on the bolts are .465" in diameter and have 5/16-18TPI threads. $20 for a set of 4. $60 for 14 bolts and spacers.
DELTA 6" DADO BLADE SET, CATALOG NO. 633, fits 5/8" arbor saws, cuts any groove up to 13/16" width, 2 1/8" outside blades, 1/16", two 1/8" and 1/4" chipper blades. Came in with a Unisaw. Click on those images of the booklet to be able to read and print them. The blade set will work as is, but it needs to have the pitch cleaned off of it and it is rusty and it needs sharpening. The table saw is not included. The miter gauge is not included. The table saw blade insert is not included. If you have never before made finger or box joints, this kit will get you started. I have found the adjustable miter gauge face jig helps a lot. Accurate set up is essential. $75
TUTORIALS ABOUND, BUT THEY ARE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND WHILE THEY ARE STILL LACKING. I am not attempting to replace those other tutorials, but to provide a few basics that may add to your understanding. I used adjustable jigs like you see above initially. If your technique is lacking, an adjustable jig is a good idea.....so you can make adjustments. Then, I needed to make a tall box out of 3/4" plywood. The longer the joint, the better your technique needs to be, because any errors in your technique will multiply--the longer the joint. I needed a 22" joint, so I grabbed a couple of scraps of 27" long plywood to make a test joint. That unglued test joint is illustrated. If the 27" box joint looks this good, the 22" box joint will look great! A photo of the dry fit box is now posted, with images of the process by which I got there. The key to making box joints is precision. I used a milling machine to precisely machine the fingers that I used for setup. You can get that precision otherwise, even if it is by trial and error. I used hardwood for the fence and the fingers because a softwood would quickly allow the attaching screws to loosen. I shimmed the mitergauge runner that slides through the tablesaw top to eliminate all excess play. The mitergauge fence was adjusted to be square with the blade. Even with all of this care there may be too much play in your setup to cut an accurate long box joint, in which case the ultimate solution is to cut one slot at a time alternating between mating sides and checking alignment after each cut, correcting as necessary, indicating where the next cut needs to be made, and aligning the cut mark with the dado blade.
CRAFTSMAN UNIVERSAL JIG for use with bench saws. The base slides in 3/4" wide by 1/2" deep standard table saw grooves. The top slides on the base--to and from the blade. Illustrated on Unisaw. The L-brackets and the hold down clamps are repositionable. Presently it is set up for cutting grooves for splined miters. See a splined miter in a walnut frame that I made. If you find it difficult to see the spline it is because the spline is also made of walnut. Use the CUT-N-CLAMP set listed below to cut the miter and glue up the frame. $30
MITER FRAME CLAMPS. Craftsman brand, 1970's vintage. The Walnut frames illustrated were assembled using these clamps. One complete CUT-N-CLAMP set of 3 corner clamps and one miter box and frame clamp, NEW, $50. 12 used corner clamps total available, 4/$35, 8/$60, 12/$100. Buy all 16 new and used @ $125
DELTA UNISAW EXTENSION TABLE LEGS. These came in with Delta's fancy fence. Unused. 32" long legs, with eight 22.5" L-strips, plastic leg tips and set of nuts, bolts and washers. 2 galvanized and painted legs only. Use for a table that is attached to the wall at one end. Use for a tablesaw extenstion. $20
MECHANICAL MULE, heavy equipment mover, pallet mover, hand operated, steel wheels, easily ~2000# capacity, weighs about 200#, ~24x24" platform can easily be enlarged if needed, ~7" high, with articulated pull handle that when pushed down raises up the platform ~2", foot release lever lowers platform, Ex, $300. I needed it recently when I sold a 1500# saw that had to be moved from my shop to the garage for pickup. I photographed it in use. I could not get the saw through the door between the shop and the garage. I had to take it out the front door and through the alley with a rough surface. With those large steel wheels, it rolled very easily.
PORTABLE WALK BEHIND ELECTRIC FORK LIFT and DIE LIFTER. Labeled "Economy Hydraulic Worklifter." wih large and capable 12V battery. About 1/2 ton capacity. It has forks and a platform that you may slip over the forks to convert it into a die lifter. There is a quick set and release locking foot. There is a cover over the rear. Platform size 25" square. Lifting range 6" to 56". $600. Being able to switch between forks and platform is a big plus. In one photo one fork is being used to hold a metal drawer housing up against the underneath side of a lathe benchtop. Although the drawer housing only weighs about 20#, you would not want to manually hold the drawer housing up while installing the retaining screws from beneath it. In another photo, the forks straddle feet at the corners of a wood platform that raises a tool and cutter grinder up to a more comfortable working height. That wood platform also makes it easy to move the tool and cutter grinder. With the steel platform installed on the forks, the forklift serves as a die lifter. I frequently use it to move small, heavy pieces of equipment from one location to another. Raise the platform to the height of the surface the equipment is on, move the equipment to the die lifter platform, adjust the height of the platform to the height of the new location, wheel the forklift to the new location and easily move the equipment sideways to the new location. It is foolish to prove your manhood by manually lifting and carrying heavy equipment when you can use a forklift and die lifter to do the heavy lifting. This die lifter and forklift will save you 1000 times the inconvenience of a single hernia. Some of the biggest, strongest, and smartest people I know have had hernias. That is a group I do not want to join. So the next time you want to install your rotary turntable onto your milling machine table, use a die lifter. I do not know what its capacity is. To be safe, I treat it as a 750# capacity unit. When it was time to put the Greenlee 5HP, 1500# table saw onto the mechanical mule listed above, I used this forklift and the below listed die lifter to do the job.
DIE LIFTER. Similar to the above listed walk around forklift and die lifter, but it is strictly mechanical in operation and it is manually powered. It has a fixed in place platform. No battery to maintain. No hydraulics to maintain. Large manual crank with about a 24" swing. Crank handle is removable and stores on the die lifter. This is the 1st such device that I bought in the early 1980's and it has never needed any servicing. I do not know what its capacity is. To be safe, I treat it as a 750# capacity unit. I am using it to install a turret tailstock onto a lathe bed. I value it equally to the electrically operated lift listed above because there is no battery to maintain. $600.
SOMETIMES 2 DIE LIFTERS ARE REQUIRED. The Hardinge lathe on the metal cabinet with underneath drive belts is too much trouble to disassemble for moving. I had this lathe delivered. It arrived strapped to a pallet. I used 2 die lifters to lift the lathe off the pallet. I then removed the pallet and put a dolly underneath the lathe. I wheeled the lathe from the garage into my shop, where space is tight. I placed the lathe as close to its final position as possible, then lifted the lathe off the dolly and lowered the lathe onto some rollers. I rolled the lathe to final position and removed the rollers.
BIG JOE. Designed as a walk around fork lift, it has had the battery powered motor and battery removed and replaced with a 110V AC electric motor. It has forks but no platform. Actually, it has a 6' high wood platform, which I built when I was using it to lift drywall up to the ceiling. Hey, when you have a good tool, you use it as you see fit. Presently, it is being used as an elevator. It lifts me and my tooling up through a roofhatch. I do not know what its capacity is. I treat it as a 750# capacity unit. $250.
Starrett 3" travel dial indicator, 3.5" diameter main dial, 2 smaller dials, by .001", Mint-, $125
MAGNETIC TRANSFER RING. 2.416" OD. 1.711" ID. 1.242" high. $50.
MAGNE BLOX. Stepped magnetic transfer angle plates for use on magnetic chuck. 7 5/8" long by 3X3" with various sized steps magnetic transfer blocks. Manufacturered by Geo Sherr Co., New York. Distributed by Grinding Machinery Co., Detroit. $265.
BRIDGEPORT 6" VISE. I bought this at auction of an old time American company in the early 1980's. It was billed as a "Bridgeport vise" because it was used on one of the many Bridgeport milling machines at the company. 6.064" wide X 1.625" high hardened jaws open to 7 13/16". The included handle is labeled "Williams." The vise is not labeled; it is well designed, very high quality and is no doubt American made. Old timers will probably recognize it. Vise may be mounted vertically--providing much more versatility. It is kind of like having 2 vises in one. It is too big for most work on my Clausing Milling machine, but occasionally it comes in handy as it did in the last picture. None of my several vises that I routinely use on the Clausing would open wide enough to accommodate this 7" workpiece. $400.
HARDINGE VISES are to be found on my HARDINGE & ELGIN BENCH LATHES and accessories web page.
ROTATING CENTERING VISE with REVERSIBLE JAWS. With accessory jaws that allow you to hold up to 12.875" wide work piece. With handle. The drive shaft is 1" square. Illustrated on a Clausing 20" industrial drill press table. The vise is too heavy for me to want to remove it to photograph it on a plain background. Vise probably weighs about 150#. Again, it is too heavy for me to care to remove it to weigh it. Also, it is in position to be used. I do use it occasionally. A centering vise can be very useful. Center it once and forget about it. I use it to bore large diameter centered holes in square mahogany lensboards. I now have another machine that will serve me as well for this task. It is not badly rusted. There is just a slight surface rust that will readily clean up. There is also some congealed oil and some mahogany dust on it. I do not find a name on it, but it is extremely well made. It is an older piece probably made in the USA. Each of the univeral jaws underneath the reversible jaws has a serial number and each of the jaws is individually adjustable. This is a very high quality vise. It is also quite unusual. I have never seen anything quite like it, but then it is definitely out of the small shop league. This is a serious industrial piece of equipment. I added some images of an 8X8" mahogany lensboard being bored on it; the clamps hold a backing board in intimate contact with the back of the lensboard to prevent tearout. $700
WILTON VISE. A truly universal vise. Designed for use with flat or round metal or wood held horizontally, vertically or at any angle. The hefty mounting block rotates and locks. The woodworking jaws are 5X7" in size with a built-in a retractable dog and are designed to have 1/2" wood faces attached to them with screws. The metal working jaws are 4" wide with pipe jaws beneath them. The jaws open to 5.5". Substantial! Weighs 41#. Mount this on the underneath side of the workbench so that the top of the woodworking jaws are flush with the workbench top. When I needed to neatly bore some properly aligned holes in the ends of some 30" long tripod legs, I found this vise to be a better choice than any of the 8 or more machine vises I own. Again I found this vise the best choice for a boring operation on the Clausing Mill, so I have taken the vise off the market. I leave it up for your information. BTW, does this not speak highly of the versatility of the Clausing mill?
CAHER RIMAN CHICAGO vise. Patented Oct 27, 1903, No. 10". 10" wide jaws open to 12+". 4.5" high jaws. This vise has a quick release feature; you may open it any distance in a flash. Another Chicago made vise; in the past we made many things in Chicago. This vise has been in constant use. I bought it from a century old Chicago hardware store that closed when the city condemned an area for redevelopment that never materialized. I bought it about 20 years ago and have been using it ever since. It has many more years of use left; it will probably outlive me. I am not going to remove it to weigh it; I guess it weighs about 40#. It is designed to have a wood face screwed to the movable jaw. When I have the need for soft jaws, I just throw in some wood or whatever. I offer it for sale only because I have so many other vises (not to mention vices). I have an all wood vice of about the same size on the other side of my workbench. An extra long vise comes in handy; in the 3rd photo I am pressing a bearing onto an 8" jointer cutterhead. $120. BTW, notice the triangular joinery on my self built workbench. You see no end of weakly joined parallelogram workbenches. I don't get it; put geometry to work for yourself.
BROWN AND SHARPE V-BLOCKS. Set of 2. Catalog No. 750B. No. 209. The V's are 1.57" wide and 2.5" long. The waists are 1.7" wide. $90.

Coil winding jig. Probably mistakenly left behind by the electrical engineering firm that used to reside in my shop. The owner was a machinist as well. Nicely made, adjustable. The rail is 7" long. The center height is 2 3/16". $95
Drill guide jig. Aluminum disk with medium strong magnets and drill guide bushings ranging from 1/4" to 5/8" set into it. Wood case. $65
Jig plate. Steel. ~6X9" top with 8 each: 10/32-TPI, 1/4-20TPI, 5/16-18TPI, 3/8-16TPI, 7/16-14TPI, and 1/2-13TPI threaded holes. 3/8" thick. Shop made. $20
Adapter for use with Hardinge steady rest or center rest or some other Hardinge component and an unknown 8" or 10" lathe. I provide dimensions so you can determine if it is for your lathe. This Hardinge steady rest is for a 9" lathe, so a 1/2" adapter makes it suitable for a 10" lathe. If you are using it to adapt a Hardinge steady rest for a 7" lathe, then it would bring the center height up to 8". Well made of aluminum. The steady rest is listed on my HARDINGE & ELGIN BENCH LATHES and accessories web page. Adapter, $50
SINEBAR. 5" from center to center of the rods. 1.275" wide. The small holes are 1/4-20TPI threaded holes. Shop made. $75.

I am selling them because they fit none of my machines. The taper shank is neither a Morse Taper 2 or 3. In diameter it is somewhere inbetween. The information on the shank should tell you what size the taper is......if you can translate that information. $20 postpaid.

SCULPTOR'S TABLE, solid oak base, hand wrought hardware, craftsman style construction, splayed legs with cross bracing, mortice and tenon joinery, 27.5" high, 24X24X2" solid maple top, weighs ~80#, top revolves--but not too easily because you want your workpiece to stay put, decades old--from university sculpting laboratory, top is newer, because the top is removable, it may be shipped via UPS. $400. This table is really well built. Sculptors pounded stone on this tabletop; it is designed to support hundreds of pounds. When I got it, the original top was a bunch of oak wood fibers loosely held together because of the pounding and weight it had suffered over the years. The legs, however, are as sturdy as new. I am currently using it in my machine shop. The piece of equipment on it in the 1st photo weighs about 150#; it will support a whole lot more. I now have a 30" diameter maple butcher block tabletop available that you may have in place of the square top. Although, personally, I would prefer the square top with clipped corners--resulting in an 8 sided top to more closely match the base; I'll neatly clip the corners of the square top for you for $50.

There are good reasons why Bedrock planes are collectible. They are higher quality and cost more new and therefore many fewer were sold. The extra heft of these planes does not make them more effort to use. They cut so much better that you will use less energy with a Bedrock. Of course, the tune of the plane and the technique of the operator are most important. This one has an aged patina. It has no broken or damaged parts. You could clean it and make it look like new, but I would leave it as is, only sharpening the blade. $400

HEAVY DUTY STAPLER Writing on the tool: "Markwell Giant Nailer. Markwell Mfg. Co., New York. Made in USA. Sixteen." There are 3 holes at the rear for bolting to a tabletop. The front end is designed to stand free above the tabletop surface or perhaps to be cantilevered out over the edge of the tabletop. I tested it on 2 sheets of corrugated cardboard--which it handled with ease; the cardboard, however, was the cheap asian variety and it tore as you can see. This calls for Markwell SPECIAL staples. $25

Westinghouse rheostat variable transformer, type 125601, 50/60 hrtz, 1 phase, input voltage 240V, output voltage 0-280V, 28 amps, 7.8 KVa, $125. I do not know for sure, but this may allow you to run motors as low speeds without losing torque. \\There is a hole caused by arcing on the electrical panel base plate. I see no reason why it would not work, but I do not know if it does work. I do not know how to connect it up to test it. It weighs 72# and most of that weight is the copper winding. At today's price of copper, that is significant.
Powerstat Variable transformer, style #874509, 40 ohms, input 2.4 amps, output 10.4 amps, 125 volts. Copper windings. 2 connecting cables. $50.
TILTING SERVICE STAND. Oftentimes used in the electronics industry for the repair of plat panel displays, etc. Metal frame is 19X25", plywood base 22X25". Adjustable angle; folds flat.

Formerly used in a basement darkroom; some corrosion on metal parts. Porcelain plates or pans. Fully adjustable and functional. $75
ANTIQUE BALANCE, Fairbanks brand, balance beam type--no springs, adjustment screw, weighs to 75#, cast iron, tabletop model. If you have an old time store, this is just what you need for the sake of appearance. A balance beam is much more accurate than a spring based scale. Springs may stretch or shrink with temperature and grow tired with age, but gravity remains constant. Out of curiosity, I will weigh a package on my accurate balance beam scale and take it to the Post Office to ship and see just how inaccurate their scales are. Their scales may read out to a tenth or a hundredth of an ounce, but because they are spring based, they are inaccurate. Of course, I must pay what their scale says. $125
