Today's junkyard find. 1/9/2017
« on: January 09, 2017, 03:03:34 pm »
I found a hand winch, 12" of 2" sq bar stock and this neat mandrel.
At first I was thinking that was factory made but now I'm not so sure.
If you look real close the body look like part of an old car/truck starter.
You can see the screws that would hold the winding in. But the end
covers are both matching covers. Some one built a chuck out of an
old gear. The work that was put into the chuck is an extreme amount
of effort so maybe someone did make the whole thing. I thought this
would make a good jackshaft for something and I'm always looking
for things to build.

Cool find.  I have a feeling as you post more finds, there will be a lot of junk yard envy growing! :D

When I want to spin down my drill press chuck, I give a quick flip on the power switch and grab the chuck.  Don't think I'd want to try that on your new chuck! :o

Today's junkyard find.... 1/10/2017


rochester automatic lubricator. All Brass.
Sure needs cleaned up. I was in the right spot
at the right time. As I was looking around the
truck with the junk came in and was unloading.
It;s 19" tall at the highest point. I will post
more pictures when I get it all shined up.
48.24 lbs of brass.

I have never seen one like that . Most steam traction and older gas tractors ran Madison Kip . If you ever get the chance take the cover off a Madison Kip . There is a pump with 2 plungers per port and a eccentric cam to work each port .

Not sure myself. It has two pistons but 4 lines.
Maybe two of the line are returns ?

Gas valve, Stanley saw, mill jack, lathe drill bits, wood chisel,
lathe face plate, sanding drum. Might get lucky tomorrow.

Last Sat.
 

  

 
4' rod and tractor chains.
Last spring I got a 6" craftsman joiner.
 

 

  In the summer a 10" craftsman T saw
 

 

This summer I man walk up to me at the dump and said I give up and handed me the saw.
 

 


This fall someone threw it away.  :D :D :D :D
All I did is put gas in it and blew off the yard,  Ann came out and asked where did I get that?   At the dump!!! :D :D :D
 

 

The dump can be fun Kbeitz.  8) 8)

I just have to post a responce here so that when I am in a hurry and only go to the reponces to threads I have posted in page, I will be able to have this thread come up for me to see the new pictures so I can be jealous.

I know this is not the same but it was made with things I found in the junk pile.

I took this old back massuager
 

 

and made this honey extractor.  I had everything laying around but the six bucks I spent for paint.
 

 
Just finished it today.

I love seeing what you guys find and also what you do with it.  It gives me ideals to steal.
Cheers
gww

Ps I just replaced the jointer motor on the yardsale jointer that is in the back ground with a treadmill motor.

Today's find... 1/17/17

I got a whole bucket of these bits. They all have the tapered ends.
I'm lathing down the ends to 3/4" and sharpening them up.
The biggest in the picture is 2-1/8" od.

basement. Nothing like making chips.

I don't know what kind of metal the bits are made of but i had another
long one that I needed to cut about an inch off the tapered end.
My cutting wheel was near it end and a little short. I cut all but about
1/8" off and took the bit and smacked it on my anvil to finish breaking
the small chunk off and the bit broke in to 3 chunks and fell on the floor.
Now that's what you call hardened steel. Maybe a little to hard. Oh well
easy come easy go. I still got more to do.
