Kbeitz..  they will just have to build a museum and name it after you.. the history  you've gathered is priceless.. many many people would enjoy.  I even like the table that the motor & pump is setup on. 

Years ago the farmer across the street had to move after he rented the farm for 25 years.. I helped them move.  After we were done he said.. you can have anything that's left. It was 9pm and raining.. I was still dragging old implements and other finds half buried in the dirt w/ my 35hp tractor.  All good stuff.. some just don't see it.  Thankyou for sharing!

I wish they made stuff like this today. You loosen one little screw and rotate
a plate about 1/4" and you just reversed the direction of the motor.
No wire to full with.

I agree.  I wish that too.  That's a wonderful way to reverse a motor.

I haven't been keeping this post updated lately...
This is some of the stuff I have been finding at the
junkyard in my home town.

Two 5 gallons pails of 4" new spikes.
Two Gravley tractors. I made one good one from the two.
Two nice 20" bandsaw band wheels.
One very nice drill press.
One pin router. I had to look that one up. Never seen one before.
One Sears garden tractor carry-all bucket. I had to paint that one.
And a bunch of little stuff all ready put away all for $160.00 .

What kind of gun do those nails fit? :D

I have one of those Rockwell pin routers and use it only for pattern routing.  Its made a few dollars for me.  The best attribute is it takes so little of my valuable floor space.  It's a nice find and I've seen them sell for around the $500 mark.

Not nail gun nails. I think that's why someone trashed them.
You got to use and old tool called a hammer. I don't think
the younger generation know how to use one unless they
are bashing someones head in.

I will set up the pin router and play. It's 220 volts only
so I need to find a dedicated spot for it. But it does run.
I did not get any pins with it so it looks like I will need
to make some. Could you post some pictures of what
they look like and how long they are ?

I already have 6 drill presses and someone offered me $65.oo for it
so I think it will go down the road. It does look to be a good unit.

This is my shop made all steel version.  I made it with a 1/4" pin and a 1/2" bushing that is a light press fit.  About all I use is 1/2" bits.  The OEM plate is aluminum with a 1/4" pin.





Brushes are no longer available for the motor so its roll your own if needed.  Bearings are also a pain but I can't remember all the details.

I think these are OEM plates.  Galvanized steel and not aluminum as I posted earlier.

Thanks... That should help me a lot. So the pins need to be the
size of the cutting bit?

It makes things simple if the pin size matches the cutter.  I have used different sizes but that was for something special.

I keep a custom sign painter supplied with wood sign blanks.  Anything she dreams up I can make on short notice.  This is pattern for a sign end that attaches by vacuum....I gave up on two sided tape a long time ago.



The completed sign ready to edge mold.



My machine saw first life in a high school shop and later worked in a shop making novelty toys.  It was maintained pretty well but some of the pins in the foot raising mechanism were wore bad.  Made it hard to raise the table accurately so I replaced a couple.  Had to do a little brazing on the notch that holds the foot peddle also.  It works like a new one now.

Your pin insert looks good.  Some machines have a little pin and a notch in the insert to keep it from spinning.  My machine does not have the pin but I never had any problem with the insert spinning.

I gotta check into the foot pedal thing. Stepping on my pedal does nothing.
It's funny that my machine at one time also came out of a school.

I picked up a few things today. There was 3 12volt hydro units there. I only
bought one. I also got the level just for a straight edge. Hand truck was mine.

Wow on the load with the two Gravelys for the money!  You did great. Plus two bus hogs.
