    No2 Jewel Grinder -resto started

    Didn't mean to start this quick but I went to check the motor and see if would work. And it did.



    Got the motor running. Next thing I know it looks like this.



    So I decided I might as well press on and get it out of the way.



    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Nice start on the resto...

    I'm curious, though. What are the two pieces that look like drive chains that are laying over the top of the motor core? Are they part of the oscillating mechanism, or what? It looks like the rack & pinion gear does the oscillating, though. Please explain.

    Man I hate it when a machine just falls apart like that and begs for a little TLC. You certainly have a knack for resto Jeff. Nice job as usual.

    Bruce, I can't find a single reference to this company on the internet. I can find nothing of them or this machine. I even Googled up the address but nothing helpful.

    Jim, The chains go over a plate that goes on top of the column and there is a large counterweight that hangs inside the column. The motor, table, etc. attach to that large casting that rides on the column. So the counter weight help to offset that weight and make height adjustments easy.
