    Cool tools. Do you still use them?

    Btw, there is a thread dedicated to old tools.

    The bandsaw need some new tires,and thrust bearings. I haven’t used it alot. Looks like I have it working good now. The only thing I don’t like about this bandsaw is the plastic wheels.

    The Belt sand was a great purchase. It didn’t need anything other then a new belt. Something I would like to add to this sander is a disc. I not sure how it mounts on this sander. Even if is possible to find one.

    The 4 inch jointer needs a new pulley motor and stand made for it. I do have a motor for it. No hurry to get going.

    3400 lathe. Well I need to make a new stand for it. I have another motor for it and I am thinking about adding a jack shaft too it.

    Yes I use the bandsaw & the belt sander. I will have to check out the old tools thread. Thanks for the heads up. Still learning this forum.

    Thanks

    @dabbs might have to step in I tried merging the two but I can’t find the other thread in the merge tool.

    Hopefully he can help if I don’t get it figured out.

    Thanks, The bandsaw & sander were bought at auction sales. The lathe & jointer I found Kijiji. Most of my tools have been bought at auction sales. Sometimes you get some good deals. Just for example I got the bandsaw for $10.00.

    Great finds @GTokley . I really enjoy seeing old tools brought back to life and used regularly. Thanks for sharing.

    I would like to have a belt sander like yours but they don’t come up very often.

    BE the change you want to see.

    yah because those older machines don’t break down the same way the newer plastic ones will.

    Ditto that ! It looks like a good solid machine. I have a 6X48 w/9″ disc Craftsman that I hate. Getting the belt to track is a real PITA
