A couple new used items I just bought for my shop. Two stage 7.5hp 24cfm compressor and a old vertical Delta band saw. The band saw is wood working saw but I will convert it to cut metal.

My level 2 car charger plug was getting hot right where the wire goes into the molded plug so I decided to cut the plug off and wire direct into the wires in the 4x4 box. to my surprise the plug only had three wires coming out but four prongs on the plug, go figure?

I started on the band saw project and I love how people paint a piece of machinery, machined surfaces, threads, label plates, everything.

I finished up the Delta band saw project, new bearings, new cool block guides, gearbox, 3 phase motor, link belt, new top and bottom pulleys, and a new VFD. This particular VFD will take 120v single phase and convert it to 230v 3 phase. I can cut both metal and wood on this saw now.

Okay so far everything checks out good on the old 1947 Parker Majestic no frills surface grinder. My main concern was if the spindle motor was any good and with a VFD connected the motor took off spinning. I cleaned and lubed the spindle and motor bearings also removed the old electrical equipment. Next up is to take it outside and give it a good cleaning, bring it back inside and check out the ways, that is the

Standing water on your property is almost never a good idea but in this case I want to attract mosquitos to the water in the buckets because they contain mosquito dunks made by Summit Corp containing a bacteria that kills mosquito larvae and that my friends is a good thing.
