It followed me home

Recommended Posts

Those ladies have seen some work but all seem to have been pretty well cared for, the broken horn notwithstanding. Did you get any dovetail bottom tools for the big one?

Nice score all round!

Yes they all have seen some work, but overall they're quite nice. the edges can be refined, there are no broken parts except the horn.

No I didn't get any tools for the big one.
But I try to find out, which tools were used with this dovetail.

Please don't be too quick to refine or repair the edges, they look pretty good in the pictures and once you remove steel it's a real bear putting it back. I'm just suggesting you use them a while before you decide.

I believe someone posted videos of a knife or scissor shop in England where the anvil was a section of face and two dovetails to hold specialty tools. It appeared to work very well for the job and I imagine different tools would make it very versatile.

Unlike hardy shank bottom tools dovetails are very solid almost becoming part of the anvil. Solid enough coupling to work very well on power hammers.

Two pieces of drive shaft, four mower blades, and an interesting bit of steel with all kinds of possibilities, all from the local farm implement sales & service.

Nice pick up, Stan, but I hope you never need a spare part for it. Ryobi are notorious for inability to supply parts. I have just thrown out a perfectly serviceable Ryobi radial arm saw for want of a miserable rubber drive belt. Tried the world over to get one but no dice.

Thanks ausfire I did finally find some replacement belts but it wasn`t easy when I bought it I was thinking it was a lot older and a better bargain  than it probably is.

JHCC if you find out what those pliers are for with the screw driver head on one handle please let me know. I have had a pair for30 years and used them for everything but what they were made for. The jaws are serrated on mine also.

Manolito, Thomas mentioned that they are pliers for crimping hose fittings, etc. Go back a few posts to read the answers.

Ausfire, do you have the specs on the belt you need for that saw?

Picked these up for $50.00  including the belt sander, I think it is a Grizzley. One of the hole punches is stamped: Heller usa

Good score! Does the belt grinder work?

Frosty The Lucky.

Yes it does but the disc sander wobbles, and there is no table for it but I really only waned it as a belt.

A handy conversion is to modify the sanding disc holder to take a disc grinder arbor and then use 9" grinder discs in it.

I talked to a couple guys at an equipment repair shop two weeks ago when I saw a coil spring. I was told to come back to give them time to make sure the new part fit so I did. Today I stopped back by and loaded the coil spring and a surprise one of them saved for me. The surprise is about 3.5" off the end of a hudraulic hammer from a hammer hoe and it's about 4" across. No idea what kind of steel it is but I couldn't help but chuckle when he said they ruined two bandsaw blades at the machine shop tryin to cut it. :) I had my two year old helper stand next to the spring, he stands about 38" tall.

What really makes it nice is he told me where they pile old stuff they can't use so I can keep an eye on it as I drive by. I'm gonna have to make them something to say thanks. Just sayin "thanks" doesn't seem right when they gave me 40lbs +- of steel.
