    Default De-bucketting Post 1.

    Another photobucketted thread I thought I'd try putting the photos back in while there's a window of opportunity...

    When I started stripping it I noticed it still has a lot of original wiring which is well past its best, the cloth was starting to drop to bits so its probably a good thing I chose this one.

    I think this paint job must have been in the late 70's early 80's. Wadkin brought out a 'supersaw' with literature of this colour.

    What is a single phase preventor?

    Its lost a couple of its corners, any ideas on how to fix. Maybe build up with braze and file?

    I started remove the 8 layers of paint and it has done a great job of protecting the metal, no rust. I think the people casting at wadkin must of had a really good day because these casting are really nice with very little evidence of fettling. The surface is perfect for a paint finish.

    The motor is 1.5hp

    This machine dates from 1945

    Cleaned up the lettering with the dremmel and removed some casting marks

    Took the motor to bits to check things out.

    JQw9-3.jpg

    A well maintained motor, I was the first inside and the bearings are still good

    A couple of days later I started assembling things and wondered why the motor wouldn't line at all. After a good 15mins I realised I rebuilt the motor backwards.

After 4 days of messing with it I gave in and installed a modern starter. I managed to use the original start / stop buttons which is good.

    What to do next Hmmm
    What to do next indeed! If anyone has a favourite Wadkin (or Sagar) thread they would like to see de-bucketted, let me know.
