i wasfortunate enough to inherit a number of vintage craftsman shop tools,
namely a jointer, radial arm saw, 12 or 14" band saw (haven't picked it up
yet so not quite sure), and a beltmaster bench grinder. unfortunately, the
former owner is deceased and was unable to communicate anything about the
tools before passing, and the tools have not been used in some 15 years.
there is some light surface rust of course but nothing major. all are from
around the mid 1960's, full metal casings, etc.. oh yeah, a huge lathe too,
if i can find a trailer to haul it with
1) are parts and accessories going to be the same as what is available
today? for instance, i cant dind a dado head, so i will have to buy that,
and who knows what else, i still have some drawers to go through.
2) the motors all appear to work fine, except for the jointer. a
hand-labeling stick on the motor said "220 volts", and the plate on the
motor says "115/230" for volts; there is no switch to alternate between two
voltage settings, and the cord is a standard 3-prong 110. i plugged it in
and the motor hums and turns 1/8 turn if i help it a little, like it is
under powered and needs 220, but again, the cord is 110 and i am not about
to hardwire it for 220 as an experiment... ;-)
any help avaialable?
