H.Lands blower bearings


Recommended Posts

My forge blower was begining to rattle because the bearings were shot. Today I took it apart and found the bearings are cast in babbit. While I was melting out the old bearings I found out that the bronze bearing holder is hollow and was stuffed with some kind of flamable material. I suspect it was to hold oil to lubricate the bearing. What was this material? and how do I recast the bearings? This is a H.Lands blower patened in England in 1886. Does anyone know where I could get that information?
