4196RE: [MedievalSawdust] RE: rebuilding the workshop
- Apr 17, 2005Harken, hear, and heed.
If it is lore of old power tools ye need, I can direct ye.
But beware, for this way lies danger. The gentles I am sending you to
have lost their way.
They used to be woodworkers, but the passion for "old arn" bites without
warning, and bites deep. Oh, certes, occasionally one of these lads will
remember why we MAKE sawdust, and will turn out a decent piece, but they
are far happier re-wiring switches and restoring old equipment.
They were very helpful to me in getting an old 6" jointer back into
working order not too far back. And I'm looking at re-wiring my wife's
grandfather's industrial Tannewitz bandsaw.
But I can quit any time I want.
Hie thee to www.owwm.com. They call this the Mothersite, wherein old
manuals are scanned and stored. It's open to the public at no cost.
You can also join the discussion list.
Just don't say I didn't warn you.

several older tools lacking manuals.
