    Default National Trust organised visit to Brinsleys Joinery. Lineshaft machinery.

    I did the tour on Saturday, didnít take the old government bus from the tram museum which would have been fun. Garry Waller took us on the tour and ran the C1900 machinery.
    The factory was originally built early 1900s with the gear driven by a large Kero motor.
    It burnt down in 1926 and was rebuilt with some of the original machinery and a 415 electric power supply from the mains. All lineshafts are floor mounted under feed off tables.
    They still have the original supply board and main switch in situ although not in use.
    Looks like all the motors had the old star delta push up til she gets the revs up, pull down to run switch. We had this on the dusty where I did my time at the naval dockyard.
    Iíll post a few pics now and more in follow on posts.

    Default Planer and circ saw.

    F957DBBC-5EC8-4DDE-B707-39E31D85C2E5.jpg61B89FFD-4612-472D-A842-7B7638B434D6.jpg67A849C6-6CD3-4B69-8231-CE7CB37D0712.jpg2848E64F-5049-4669-8F51-F3C4108A203E.jpg7FCFE19A-D369-48F3-8AE9-1F2D70D598FE.jpgThe TTTG had the details about the open day on their website.
    One of the tool club members said heíd not seen it on the National Trust site?
    More pics, Iíll try and start at the front and work to the back.
    First off a planer with 3 square cutterblocks.
    Next a break down circular saw bench.
    These had a common table behind then on which a large curved piece of Joinery is being glued up.
    Two motors under the rear with long leather belts on fast and loose pulleys at the machine to be driven.
    I didnít get to poke around as there were other people there but the planer may have utilised both motors.
    Sorry about the order of the pics the pulleys should be with the saw.

    Thanks for the photos so far H. I particularly like the switchboard photo in the first post - as you're aware, I have a bit of a bent for old switchgear too .

    Cheers, Vann.

    Default Mortiser etc.

    9F34FF16-A9E2-4DFA-AFFF-ED6C86876E4E.jpgD3C43322-231D-4F35-80D4-A45C20B212A9.jpgC0C45916-1F75-4473-B86A-FEDC5C4B9A70.jpg2C95AE73-F73B-4783-8DF8-1A0129C2BE60.jpg7C874E17-C3EC-4EFE-889C-158B53C6919A.jpgNext up the Mortiser and the tennoner.
    Both run off one motor.
    They took a while to get up to speed.
    Mortiser was a Wilson chain or chisel.
    The ĎBall bearingí pic is from the Mortiser.
    Tennoner 3 head. No markings that I could discern.

    Green sure beats grey,everything at the dockyard in and out of the water was grey.
    Matter of fact Iím painting a lathe that colour currently.
    Looks better than the grey one.

    What a great looking workshop Henry! The windows and light is nice . love the woodwork as well.
    And great machinery . I was hoping the tenoner was coming after a glimpse of part of it in your first pictures. There is some cast writing on the flat middle section between the trusses the table rolls on . Doesn't look like a name though . Did you make out what that said when there ?

    Default Jointer and stroke sander.

    Next around was a jointer.
    This was belt driven and may have shared the motor with stroke sander.
    It Looks Oz made possibly early Macson or Barker.
    It wasnít guarded and I didnít get the chance to ask Garry about it.
    The stroke sander had no brand that I could see.
    It didnít look that old but you canít see much for the guards.
