I thought I posted photos but I can't find them. This is an unknown motor that was powering a Greaves Klusman 24" jointer.
The machine is being restored by Keith Rucker the founder of OWWM.org., for use in the Georgia Agrarama Museum. I don't know details about the museum but I am under the impression it is a working museum. The machine is destine to be line shaft driven once again so the motor was surplus.
Friend of mine that donated the jointer to Keith gave me the motor. It is a very neat looking motor but in sad looking shape. Nice thing is it runs! It his 3 phase and I working on getting 3 phase in the shop so I have not heard it run. He hooked it up and said it was so smooth and quite he thought it was dead till he walked over to it and to his surprise saw it running.
I have been working on it off and on for a few weeks. All the other projects are at a stopping point so it's time to get this one done while I wait on the parts for the RpC to come in. I worked on the bell ends yesterday and got them cleaned, primed and painted.
Went to motor shop and talked to them about doing some work on the windings and he told me to do it myself, that it was going to cost way to much. Nothing like an honest man! Gave me some advice on varnishing the windings and how to repair the leads. So this week I hope to get that done and hopefully will be ready to start putting the motor back together.
