    and this really nice old motor. i just redid it, it wouldnt start reliably and had a bad rumble when it did
    complete tear down, removed what seemed like 3 lbs of sawdust and grease, repacked the open ball bearings, prettied it up a bit

    Is your shop a Beaver lodge?

    You have the magic touch. Very nice re-build on the motor and can't wait to see what you do to the bandsaw.

    thanks, my last little touch will be brass acorn nuts for the long bolts. i do that on most motor rebuilds. the brass screws for the info plate are also a common thing for me.

    i also always paint them two colours, not necessarily black and gray though. that way i know i had the motor apart!

    the bandsaw wont look much different, its all unfinished aluminum. the door panels are thick stamped aluminum, the rest is cast. a few brass bits will get shined up, clean the rust of the steel bits

    it was made by:
    Wilson Brass & Aluminum Foundries, Ltd.
    Toronto, ON, Canada
