Got it apart except the spindle it seems ok , I replaced the electric cord to run the motor it started rite up sounded good for a while then started to kinda howell I’ll prob bring it to a motor shop and have them check it out,
but it is a Howell motor I don’t think it should howell. I’ll fix the arc of shame with JB weld unless someone knows a better way ? . It’ll get cleaned up and painted, thinking of filling the collom with cement for stiffness what u think ? .
that’s it for now.
If you have some grinding chips mix them up in the epoxy it be more realistic then old gray epoxy. Looks like it may be the bottom pulley causing the howling, it's about wore thru. Epoxy it will help that too. Oh I'd add a counterweight in the column with a pulley and sash chain hooked to the table to help adjust it easier. Ck Mr Pete on YouTube easy to do.
Do you have a gear puller that will fit over it?(or make one) Put some load on it with the puller and tap the sides of the pulley without denting the aluminum. If the motor is shot, cut off the shaft and tap out the remainder from the pulley. Does anyone know if that motor is original? The motor on mine is labeled Clausing.
No, I probably didn’t explain it properly, I put a bearing splitter behind the pulley, then use a puller the pushes on the mtor shaft, while puller jaws, grab the bearing splitter. I just don’t use the puller directly on the pulley.
That makes sense.
How about this idea: lay two steel bars under the pulley with a gap to fit the shaft. Support the bars on blocks and then drive the shaft out with a punch or press. You could notch the bars for a better fit.
All cleaned up painted , all new bearings in the head, arc of shame JB weld filled filed smooth, new power cord,
.0008 tir on spindle taper, squirted some spindle oil in motor oil ports sounds good now.
I bolted it down to the rolling cart w/locking wheels. Still waiting on new locking collar 1/2” chuck to arrive and need a new 47” belt
I replaced mine with Timken p202kdd52 per the invoice, I had my bearings with me at the bearing shop.
The dp is on a rolling cart I mounted the 3ton arbor press and the Reed vise behind the dp so I can get them out of the way.
