Re: What is it?

The guide wheels on these machines were steel, 3 on the top guide and 3 on the bottom guide, all 3.5" in diameter. Guide wheel ass'y on the top were hydraulically positioned to the operators choice. The blades had teeth facing the normal way for a bandsaw.

Re: What is it?

Our saws had rubber tires. The rubber was vulcanized onto a steel band. We cut the old one off and clamped, hammered and swore at putting the new tires on, I know that because I changed a few of them and it took 2 people to do the job. These tires were 5ft in diameter. They are still using these saw...

Re: What is it?

We had some big Tannewitz bandsaws (25hp drive motors) that did friction cutting. Scary machines, I wouldn't use them. One of the few machines that you could get hurt on by doing nothing wrong.

Re: Electric motor capacitors

More than likely the capacitor is bad. If you can't find one, I can get one for you. We used those Rotron blowers in the foundry for liquidizing the sand beds. They will put out a lot of air. The ones that we had though were 3 phase. And yes, they are proud of them!

Re: Great service

I get the big yellow book too. I use them a lot with my business.
When companies ask how to design a website to sell their product, I tell them to look at McMaster and learn.

Re: Using 811 For Finding Underground Wires

About 15 years ago, I helped a friend of mine who was replacing his mobile home in a park with a new home. We had to dig up the water line to the shut off valve and replace it with a 1" line, original was 3/8" and run about 120 feet. So, I started digging with my backhoe very carefully and with perm...

Re: Using 811 For Finding Underground Wires

We had that happen here to a neighbor. The contractor didn't call "Dig Safe" 811, and pulled up a phone cable 3" in diameter. Turned out the cable was 10 feet from were the maps claimed it was. The cable was next to the foundation of the house and it cost him a lot of money. I have mapped all of the...
