I found an interesting article in the Aug. 2000 issue of Woodwork
Magazine pages 66 to 72. "Replacing babbitt bearings" by Mike Burton
includes 14 large photographs/drawings. Basis of the article is that if
you are running a woodworking shop with Pre-1900 machinery, you need to
know how to pour babbitt.
Some of the topics are: How to brew your own babbitt (wheel weights
and lead-free solder), pouring the bearing, truing the bearing, paper
spacers, oil, and the care and feeding of babbitt bearings.
A very good article that wanted to let you all know about...
