    What does the other end of this bolt look like (where it runs in the slot in the column), please?

    Its supposed to be ground on both sides of the threads to make it fit in the slot. Ive seen alot of times that people have tried to unscrew the bolt which ends up damaging the slot or they try to rotate the arm instead of releasing the base bolt.

    The crown guard has suffered a bit



    Used silicon bronze wire in the mig



    This is part of the fence and just for the wadkin geeks, they were still using the fence of the PJ which was a 2O's machine on this 1941 machine.

    On the base it has a strip machined in it that slots into the dovetail slot in the table. On later versions these strips are removeable to change when worn.
    The strips on mine are quite worn and theirs a bit missing so I'm going to get them machined off and a slot put in to receive a strip that matches the table slot.

    This is the wire I use in the mig. It costs 4 times the normal stuff, I think its for welding dissimilar metals.

    The sliding table is pretty crusty


    But clean underneath

    It has hardened strips set into the casting where it rolls on the bearings

    To clean the rust off I removed the thick with scotchbrite and degreaser

    Then laid kitchen roll and soaked it with that magic deruster.


    Time to make stuff shiny



    Sanded to 1OOO grit then polished

    The evaporust didn't work very well. The solution has maybe been used too much or it was too rusty.
    I reverted back to razor method
