|This is a 36" band saw affectionately
know as "Big Bertha". It took me
about two years to rebuild and move
into my shop. She stands about 9 feet
tall and takes about a 4 by 7 feet of
floor space. She runs beautifully.
|This is a before picture just after I
got her home. Originally it would
have had cast spoked wheels and
babbitt bearings but a previous
owner changed the wheels, and the
bearings to roller bearings. The
table originally was cast iron but it
came with a wood table.

|This is my lumber rack where I keep
my lumber and bowls. The lumber is
there to dry for future projects.
|This is my lathe you can see the head end the bed
is 9 feet long. To the right is my lathe tool rack on
wheels so it can be move along the bed when I
am working on long spindles. The black hose
coming down is for dust collection. It is custom
made I bought the head stock spindle , tail stock
and banjo from Nickels lathe in WA then built
the rest myself.
|This is my 12 inch jointer made by C.H Clement
co. from Rochester NY in the early 1900s. It has
babbitt bearings. I made the knife guard as they
didn't come with them back then kind of scary.
|Here is another view of the jointer. I put a 2 hp
motor on her and it runs beautifully. For now I
use a box under it to collect the shaving hope to
get it connected to my collection system soon.
