Found a couple small enough! FYI, the paint matches the old Kysor green much better than the lighting in the pics show.
The camera makes the paint look a good bit off, but you guys get the point.

Paul, the software upgrade in February included a .jpg re-size and compression feature that usually will compress your pictures for you, unless they are just egregiously overboard.

I'm assuming you don't hang around this damned forum enough to have realized that.

Owned! By the Curmudgeon himself! Guilty as charged cutter! Sorry guys. I've been "welderless" for a while, and that's the only reason I've not been around much. I've recently begun to start my machine shop back up again though!
I was forced to sell off a bunch of machines a few years ago when all financial hell broke loose. (I had no choice. Family first ya know).
Trust me, it's not because I have no interest , but it's TOUGH as hell to hang out on the forums when you've got no welder. Depressing almost!
I actually still don't have a welder, but I hope to change that soon.
Anyone care to help a welderless brother out?

Paul,

Thanks for the post. I enjoy seeing other saws restored and yours looks great. Sorry to hear about your welder deficiency. Have you checked ebay?

Can you post more pictures of your Kysor? I am in the process of making a downfeed cylinder for mine and would like to see a close up of the original.

I am using Lubriplate Gear Shield on the spur gear and it is very good stuff.

I would like to know the age of my saw, but there is no nameplate. I am guessing it is from the 1940's. My gearbox was filled with grease when I bought it. Aren't they normally filled with oil?

I have flipped all the gears (worm/worm gear, ring/spur gear) and made 2 new shafts for the gearbox. The gearbox pulley shaft took some abuse and was bent. The worm has a pin holding it to the shaft and was broken on one side and just about to wear out on the other side. Consequently, the worm was worn loose on the shaft and made all the strange grooves on the worm gear. Take a second look at pictures 4 and 5 of the original post in this thread. Compare the gear flanks on the left and right side of the worm gear (picture 4) and the top and bottom in picture 5. One side of both is smooth and the other is grooved. I cleaned up the ID of the worm and aligned it and the worm gear carefully on new shafts. Now it turns very smoothly.

Hi madam X,
Well, no not technically, but I honestly have never been one of those guys that hangs out posting about all sorts of off topic subjects, etc, etc.
I certainly don't mind a little socialization, but I've always been the type who cruises the forums looking to get down to business and talk metalworking.
I'm glad you guys enjoy it though.

Yeah, my fault. Boy, nothing gets by you cutter! One of the threads in my inbox was a notification from allessance, and then I somehow got them confused after seeing here name in my inbox.
My mistake Madam X! So sorry.
