    This is the blade flange that I bent a bit whilst trying to remove it. I was going to remove the brazing and try and weld it straight but since my welding is pants and the braze was still sound I skimmed it on the lathe. When its installed I will finish it off in place.

    The reason it was so difficult in removing was because its really snug. I measured the difference in the hole to the spindle and it was 0.3mm. To get it back on it needed some heat and a decent wack with a big hammer.

    I have started putting it back together.


    For the blade guard I was wanting to do something different, shiny with the wadkin in red. I spent ages with the dremmel cleaning up inside the lettering but it looks naff compared to the rest of it. Its really hard to get a good finish in between the letters. If any one has a idea?

    What's the ID and OD of the flange Mark?

    Not much to report apart from I got the starter cleaned up abit. This is new old stock from a hoard I acquired a while back. It had been on a shelf at a motor repair shop in Scotland for donkeys years until the old guy passed away then the daughter was going to scrap everything.

    Finished'ish I still need to get some rubberised 4core wire and plum the motor in.




    I still need to check and maybe grind the flange on the spindle

    This is how it sits in the line up

    The old saw looks fantastic. Like seeing how you dealt with some of the problems you encountered during the restoration. Your journey is a good read, thanks for posting.

    Default No Photos

    <br>I'm not getting the pictures. Even the pictures in previous posts have gone - the last picture showing is the first photo of your post on 5th October. And it's the same on the Canadian &amp; UK forums.<br><br>Is it just this work computer, or are others having the same difficulty?<br><br>Cheers, Vann.<br type="_moz">


    Edit: Yup, looks like it might be this computer.

    Edit (from another computer): Yes it was definitely a problem with that computer. Strange how it blanked out the same photos on three different woodworking sites

    I thought I'd take the liberty of linking to Raymond's thread on his CQ saw...

    Unfortunately not, just the chuck that's in it and I've got a couple of the hold downs which are pretty cool. They normally have a 2hp motor but you could ask for 3 or 4 this one has the 4hp. I might have a source for some tooling
