    Who has a chainsaw they don't use anymore?

    I recently purchased a Makita 60cc with a 20" bar, which is actually a Dolmar, and have been very pleased. This machine is a beast. I cut through a 30 inch maple log in no time.

    Looking for older motor starter

    Thanks Ed. Definitely, having done a few restorations so far I spend more time than I should at OWWM. Just thought I would check on this site for something local as well.

    Looking for older motor starter

    I'm in the middle of two machine restorations and looking for older (rusty is fine just needs to be functional) motor starters/switches. Single phase able to support at least 1 1/2 HP. Something like an old Allen Bradley (A-B) 609 or older cutler and hammer (see attached examples). I'm...

    Wanted: Older 1hp to 2hp single phase motor - FOUND

    I just picked up an early 1900s bandsaw and am looking for a vintage motor to add to the restoration. Old, rusted and in need of work is ok as long as it doesn't need to be rewound. My ultimate would be a big heavy 2hp century. I am open to 3 phase if the price is right, but prefer single...

    Any idea who made this BS?

    I just purchased a similar 26" bandsaw and they are very simple to restore and get running. Babbitt bearings are not too bad to deal with and can be re-poured or even replaced with modern bearings if needed (retrofitted pillow block). The nice thing about these old large saws is the bulk which...

    Re-purpose Dust Collector

    I am always one to try and re-use and re-purpose where possible before I scrap something. In a recent auction I obtained the filter portion of a large industrial dust collector. There is a an angled portion connected by a few bolts to a square portion with 4 large holes where the filter bags...

    Looking for a small electric motor repair shop near Raleigh

    Thanks for the replies, would Southern Electric do some minor troubleshooting? They look like a bigger shop. I'll check out the Williams and the one on South Saunders. Thank you!

    Looking for a small electric motor repair shop near Raleigh

    I have an older single phase AC motor that is having issues. I've just about exhausted everything I can think of (capacitor, centrifugal switch cleaning, bearings, etc) and would like to have a professional take a look. It's older and nothing special so I don't want to dump a lot of money into...
