Title: Today's junkyard find.
Post by: Kbeitz on January 09, 2017, 03:03:34 PM
I found a hand winch, 12" of 2" sq bar stock and this neat mandrel.
At first I was thinking that was factory made but now I'm not so sure.
If you look real close the body look like part of an old car/truck starter.
You can see the screws that would hold the winding in. But the end
covers are both matching covers. Some one built a chuck out of an
old gear. The work that was put into the chuck is an extreme amount
of effort so maybe someone did make the whole thing. I thought this
would make a good jackshaft for something and I'm always looking
for things to build.

Cool find.  I have a feeling as you post more finds, there will be a lot of junk yard envy growing! :D

When I want to spin down my drill press chuck, I give a quick flip on the power switch and grab the chuck.  Don't think I'd want to try that on your new chuck! :o

when I was doing scrap  I saw a lot of cool stuff/junk but the yard guy was an   and would not let me take anything even offered to buy some of it at double the junk price someone junked a jd 350 dozer with great tracks and sprockets and I watched them take a shear and cut it to pieces  :'( :'( :( >:(

Today's junkyard find.... 1/10/2017


rochester automatic lubricator. All Brass.
Sure needs cleaned up. I was in the right spot
at the right time. As I was looking around the
truck with the junk came in and was unloading.
It;s 19" tall at the highest point. I will post
more pictures when I get it all shined up.
48.24 lbs of brass.

I have never seen one like that . Most steam traction and older gas tractors ran Madison Kip . If you ever get the chance take the cover off a Madison Kip . There is a pump with 2 plungers per port and a eccentric cam to work each port .

Maybe two of the line are returns ?

I just have to post a responce here so that when I am in a hurry and only go to the reponces to threads I have posted in page, I will be able to have this thread come up for me to see the new pictures so I can be jealous.

I know this is not the same but it was made with things I found in the junk pile.

I took this old back massuager
 

 (http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/39533/0112171347-00.jpg?easyrotate_cache=1484616831)

and made this honey extractor.  I had everything laying around but the six bucks I spent for paint.

I love seeing what you guys find and also what you do with it.  It gives me ideals to steal.

Ps I just replaced the jointer motor on the yardsale jointer that is in the back ground with a treadmill motor.

Today's find... 1/17/17

I got a whole bucket of these bits. They all have the tapered ends.
I'm lathing down the ends to 3/4" and sharpening them up.
The biggest in the picture is 2-1/8" od.

I don't know what kind of metal the bits are made of but i had another
long one that I needed to cut about an inch off the tapered end.
My cutting wheel was near it end and a little short. I cut all but about
1/8" off and took the bit and smacked it on my anvil to finish breaking
the small chunk off and the bit broke in to 3 chunks and fell on the floor.
Now that's what you call hardened steel. Maybe a little to hard. Oh well
easy come easy go. I still got more to do.

I got this Grumman stepvan out of a JY. Had 29K miles on it. took me about 20 minutes to get it running, steering column was locked up and would not shift. Loosened the mounting bolts so I could turn the entire column to make it go in gear and drove it out of the JY. 6.2 diesel, 400 auto. Put all new brake parts on it including lines just to be safe. runs and drives A1!.

Today's find.... 1/21/17

It took me awhile to find out what it was . It's the bottom half of a Yankee
vise. I found and bought the top part off E-bay...
After I get it and mount it I will post another picture.

Wifie complanes that I don't sell some of my stuff now.
I said ... Why? All I would get for it is money.What would I
do with money? Just buy more stuff. I already got what I want.
Everyday I can walk out to one of my shops and play with things
that i don't even remember having. It's a dream world that I don't
want to give up. Just looking at the stuff gives me pleasure.
I don't think I will ever stop collecting. I could post so many pictures
if things in my collections that people would get sick at looking at them.
This is just a sample of one of my buildings...

With the cold and the snow and mud I have been avoiding the junkyard.
Today I needed to make a trip to town and I could not resist stopping in
to see if anything was new. This is what I found. Cost me a cool $20.00.
I have no idea if it works but not much can go wrong with a welder.

I actually built a spot welder.  I used brass rod for the electrodes - worked fairly well.  I used a "programmable" timer to trigger a relay.  It has three dials to select from .001 seconds to .999 seconds and then you can switch something else to slide the scale to whole seconds and minutes.  Pretty cool timer.

Post by: Kbeitz on April 15, 2017, 06:19:39 AM
I stopped in the junkyard yesterday to see what's new.
They had crane problems and they wanted me to look at it.
It would not start but had power to the starter but nothing
from the key. I could not find any power in the cab or the
generator room. Yes this thing is BIG. It has rooms.
It took awhile to find the problem. A wire came unplugged.
I did not have any test equipment with me so I used a 12v fan.
The fan would really rip on 24 volts.

So then I went scrounging... I found a

drill press
A brand new 24" chain saw bar
40 lbs of cut off flat plate steel.
boat winch
trailer jack
A hand full of bolts
20 foot log chain with hooks
12 volt school bus window fan
3/8 x 12" socket extension
3/4 hp antique induction repulsion motor
and a 5 gal. tractor gas tank

I went to pay for it and they said ... Get out of here...
Guess they was real happy to have the crane running again...

Kbeitz, I'll take all the flat iron you can scrounge  ;D, but seriously what is a reduction impulsion motor?  Once again my ignorance rears it's ugly head, good thing I can lean on you fine folks.

An reduction impulsion motor is to me one of the neatest old mechanical
things to collect. You don't see many any more. This first picture is the one
I just found. It's big for only 3/4 hp. Note the penny lower left of the photo.
I will strip it down and clean and paint and add it to my collection.
I already tested it and it runs great.

Years ago the farmer across the street had to move after he rented the farm for 25 years.. I helped them move.  After we were done he said.. you can have anything that's left. It was 9pm and raining.. I was still dragging old implements and other finds half buried in the dirt w/ my 35hp tractor.  All good stuff.. some just don't see it.  Thankyou for sharing!

Two 5 gallons pails of 4" new spikes.
Two Gravley tractors. I made one good one from the two.
Two nice 20" bandsaw band wheels.
One very nice drill press.
One pin router. I had to look that one up. Never seen one before.
One Sears garden tractor carry-all bucket. I had to paint that one.
And a bunch of little stuff all ready put away all for $160.00 .

I have one of those Rockwell pin routers and use it only for pattern routing.  Its made a few dollars for me.  The best attribute is it takes so little of my valuable floor space.  It's a nice find and I've seen them sell for around the $500 mark.

I have one of those Rockwell pin routers and use it only for pattern routing.  Its made a few dollars for me.  The best attribute is it takes so little of my valuable floor space.  It's a nice find and I've seen them sell for around the $500 mark.

Not nail gun nails. I think that's why someone trashed them.
You got to use and old tool called a hammer. I don't think
the younger generation know how to use one unless they
are bashing someones head in.

I will set up the pin router and play. It's 220 volts only
so I need to find a dedicated spot for it. But it does run.
I did not get any pins with it so it looks like I will need
to make some. Could you post some pictures of what
they look like and how long they are ?

  I got that little drill press (heavy little bugger) delta and or made by delta I keep mine in basement for small jobs in house. Might need to move to shop as wifee getting
antise  about getting full of junk I keep telling her it's stuff not junk. LOL LOL I think you will like that press works fine for me.

I already have 6 drill presses and someone offered me $65.oo for it
so I think it will go down the road. It does look to be a good unit.

This is my shop made all steel version.  I made it with a 1/4" pin and a 1/2" bushing that is a light press fit.  About all I use is 1/2" bits.  The OEM plate is aluminum with a 1/4" pin.

Brushes are no longer available for the motor so its roll your own if needed.  Bearings are also a pain but I can't remember all the details.

It makes things simple if the pin size matches the cutter.  I have used different sizes but that was for something special.

I keep a custom sign painter supplied with wood sign blanks.  Anything she dreams up I can make on short notice.  This is pattern for a sign end that attaches by vacuum....I gave up on two sided tape a long time ago.

My machine saw first life in a high school shop and later worked in a shop making novelty toys.  It was maintained pretty well but some of the pins in the foot raising mechanism were wore bad.  Made it hard to raise the table accurately so I replaced a couple.  Had to do a little brazing on the notch that holds the foot peddle also.  It works like a new one now.

Your pin insert looks good.  Some machines have a little pin and a notch in the insert to keep it from spinning.  My machine does not have the pin but I never had any problem with the insert spinning.

My latest project is putting a second floor in the barn. So I had to move a lot of
stuff that hasn't been moved for a while. Some of the stuff was part of my small
engine collection. I had over 3000 engines in my collection years ago. I'm now
down to a few hundred engines. All came from the junkyard. The ones I want to
show you is kinda rare. Years ago small engines was made so if you changed the
oil pan and rotated the carb. you could change a horizontal into a vertical one.
The first picture is of a very rare B/S engine only made a very short time because
the crank would not get the oil needed and they would blow up.

I'm green with envy - all the cool stuff you find for virtually free.  I'm also a bit red with anger - at the waste.  You are just picking in one junk yard of probably 10 of thousands across the country.  What a wasteful society we have.

We used to have a little junk yard in the town I worked.  It was on Berry Street.  They organized the junk a bit and you could buy whatever (haggling allowed to some extent).  The running joke was people called it the "Berry Street Mall", playing off the big shopping center malls in the area.  You would say you went shopping at the Berry Street Mall instead of scrounging at the junk yard :D  It closed down probably 15 years ago :(

Post by: Kbeitz on June 27, 2017, 03:27:34 AM
What surprises me is that more people doesn't go shopping at our junkyard.
I think the biggest reason is that it's one BIG mud hole. It's nothing to find
6 inches of mud to walk through. They haul in rock to cover the mud every so
often but it just disperses.

The good stuff in the junkyards is a sign of the times.  People are becoming more useless, less thrifty and more flush with cash apparently as well.

has the end of the tape broken off. I was thinking wow. I'll just go to E-bay and buy
new replacement tapes (#32-625) Wrong... The cheapest I can find is $17.99 and
I can buy new the whole tape for around $5.00... Hummm....

I have been finding stuff every week but today I found something worth posting.

Ireland Machine & Foundry Co PTO winch. It's missing the wheels and the front
of the PTO shaft that goes onto the tractor. I dont know how well it works yet
because I have yet to get it unloaded. You can tell that the wheels was just
taken off of it but I could not find them. It need a new wood handle that works
what I'm thinking the brakes. Looks like this will make a great logging winch.

Also under the winch you can see a Sears cultivator
with part of the 3 point hitch. That stuff brings big bucks.
This load cost me $75.00

A little history on the  Ireland Machine & Foundry.

  In 1886, A. Bertsell Ireland, of Greene, NY, patented
a shingle machine and a saw blade. His shingle machine
 (and probably the saw blade) were manufactured by
Lyon Iron Works of Greene, NY. At some point, perhaps
in the 1890s, manufacture moved to Ireland Machine &
Foundry Co., Inc.

     Ireland's product line expanded to include a variety
of sawmills and related machinery. Some of their machinery
was sold by the John Deere Plow Co. The company survived
until at least 1936.

What I find amazing is all these towns around here are basically dead as far as manufacturing but were once manufacturing giants.  Lots of stuff going on.  Heck, my little dead town was once a central hub for shipping when the Chenango Canal was operational.  Then the railroad came and all the shipping just kind of died slowly but I don't know why cause I ain't that smart.  I'm thinking most little towns were once bustling with manufacturing, iron works, sawmills, dairies, etc.  Oh well, at least we have small momentos. 

K, that's a great find with that PTO winch.  It's amazing to me, all the time, what people will throw away.

around 15% of what it sells for and you get the rest. I have sold
a lot of stuff there but I have also bought my share.
To find a  consignment auction in your area just go to

I lost the hubcap on my dodge the day I brought it home (bought used).  I had every intention of replacing it but apparently I am a procrastinator.  That was seven or eight years ago, or maby ten.

I went back to the junkyard to find some tires and rims for the winch
and I found two real nice tires. I walked over to the pile where I found
the winch and they was almost done cutting up the rest of the pile.
So I looked around for the missing PTO shaft and I found if. I sure wish
I got there before the junkers took off the old rims and tires. On side
had left hand lug bolts. I was very lucky to have some in my lug bolt
drawer. Tomorrow I'm going to make a new handle for the broken one.

Can someone explain why they used to put right handed threads on one side and left on the other?  Not important just always wondered why. Nice little winch though!

If your wheel is turning and you are going forward the turn force on the nut will be to tighten instead of losen.

Thanks, never thought of that.  I've only seen them on bigger trucks and always wondered about it but wouldn't the side with the right handed threads be opposite of that then?
Title: Re: Today's junkyard find.
Post by: Ox on July 21, 2017, 02:25:45 PM
Right handed threads for the driver side, left handed threads for the passenger side keeps the twisting force always tightening on either side.

I don't think it really matters cause most things aren't that way today.  If it really made a difference it would be different threads on everything made - cars, trucks, trailers, etc.  Everything is standard right threads today I think.  There's always an exception to every rule and people love to bring it up to prove people wrong, so look for that here soon...  ;)

If you really think about it, there isn't a twisting force applied to the lug nuts/studs.  If the nut was just on the axle, then yes.  But even on trailer axles, there is a castle nut to keep it from tightening or loosening.  Perhaps this is a relic from long ago (wagon wheels?) or some engineer wrote a really good thesis on it :D  Y'all know that engineers don't live in the real world, I should know, I've got an engineering degree ;D

But with weed wacker's and flywheels if the shaft stops fast the heavy parts can spin and
take the nut off if not left handed.. This can't happen with a wheel. It does not matter how
fast the wheel stops it can not spin on the hub.

I have had a couple of old cars/jeeps with left hand lugs.
The first one was a 46 or 8 CJ2A. I was around 14 and trying to pull the wheels off. I had chiseled off one lug and was starting on another one when my father pointed out that they were left handed.
Hard lessons learned are hard to forget.

Jackpot today... First... I helped the boss fix his zeroturn mower so everything shown here today was free.
Whatever comes into this junkyard means nothing to the owner. He only see $$$ as weigh in junk.
He saves out very little for his self. Back of my Jeep was full. This is what happens when you don't go for a while.
It took me around two hours to get it all separated and put away.

I got today...

Nails.
Screws.
Much electrical stuff.
Gear motors.
rotating air connections.
Nits, bolts.
Washers.
Bushings steel.
Bushings brass.
two tractor headlights.
16" ridgid pipe wrench.
3/4" heavy duty eye bolts.
all thread couplers.
Two new steering boxes.
lots of pulleys.

I wonder if that pipe wrench got tossed by accident, mixed in with some miscellaneous.

Those look like bronze bushings, to me. Ever done any metal casting? I've always wanted to but never got the roundtuit to build a furnace.

Wouldn't give 2 cents for the electrical switches and receptacles, but everything else looks handy. What were those heavy eye bolts for?

I got both steel and brass or bronze bushings.
I have a foundry and I do castings.
What do you have against light switches and receptacles?
The ones with the switches and receptacle in one is expensive.
I have no idea what the eye bolts was for but I'm sure
they will come in real handy for things like hinges.

Generally, switches and receptacles get tossed when they cause a problem, that is, when they're worn out. Could've been just a fashion change, though.


Hinges and joints in some newly created machine?

The switches and receptacles was new or I also would not have touched them. Most still was in
the store box but they was damp and dirty so I just dumped the boxes.

I see many gear motors. I only pickup the ones that are really different.
I bet I have 200 gear motors now. Never the one I need. This one turn out
to be 115 volts AC. but on the label it say change the red pos for reverse.
AC does not have Pos. This came from the factory this way. I have yet to
play with it. RPM's not listed. I'm thinking that it's not an AC motor because
the wires is Green, black and red. I think the label is wrong.

One cabinet for springs.
One cabinet for electric items like wire nuts conduit connectors and such.
One section of shelves for electric motors.
The list goes on. Some time I loose things.
Sometimes I find things I did not know I had.

When I was about 8 we lived near a local dumping spot on the river. Just full of good stuff a kid needed. Everyday I'd drag stuff home and everyday my mom would make me drag it back. You're what I would have been if it hadn't been for a woman holding me back!

Well it rained today so I got time to check out the chain saw. I put some gas in it
but it was almost full of what smelled like good gas. I should of dumped it out
because after about 5-10min of run time it locked up tight. I dumped out the gas and
put in a heavy mix and I backed out the H. screw one turn. I removed the spark plug
and squirted in some WD-40 and pulled the rope. It pulled hard but it came free.
So I fired it back up and ran it hard. I cut wood for about 30 min with no problems.
I had to put a chain on it . I have 100's of junkyard chains but I had a hard time finding
one the fit the narrow blade. I find lots of good bars and chains at the yard but not many
chainsaws. This looks to be a keeper. Like I said before this looks almost unused.
When was the last year homelite made a super XL ?

That ice cream mixer would look good attached to one of your gear motors.  Then you can cut some staves and make a tub for it to fit in.  I guess you'll need the the container and lid and paddles too.  Maybe it's a bigger project than I thought.  Anyway, that mixer brings back memories.

Those little (and big) homelites are all I used my whole life untill about 3 years ago when my last two gave out and are probly in the junk yard.  I remember my cousens using the Mcculloch.  We were all pretty loyal to our brand and more then willing to look down on the other brand.  I grew up thinking that Mcculloch were hard to start :).

I cut ALOT of wood with an old Homelite Super XL with the thumb oiler.  I mean a lot.  It's got enough torque that you can really undercut when sharpening and take the rakers right down to crazy depths and it'll still pull a 20" chain loop on a hard nose bar.  I could keep up with the Husqvarnas the other loggers and woodcutters were using.  It was funny to see their faces when I pulled it out and in some cases outperformed their expensive modern saws with an old "clunker". 

Yes, they're loud, heavy and vibrate horrible.  But they always start easy and run flawlessly.  At least mine did.  I'll always have a fondness for the old Homelites.
Title: Re: Today's junkyard find.
Post by: Magicman on August 22, 2017, 10:29:34 AM
I have no idea what I will ever do with mine except keep them for whatever reason.  They both still crank and run.  I quit using them because of the lack of a chain brake.

I wish I had them cause my huskavarna 350 is falling apart and I have stolen dads stihl 390 cause I am too cheep to buy more saws and too lazy to fix the two that dad still has laying around.  I find that the one with the gas leak runs good but I find gas leaks hard to fix.  I think the closest to hurting my self that I remember is I cut into my tennis shoe and the greatest avoidince of real dangerous stuff that happended more then once was turning around with the saw in my hand and somebody standing or working there.  Sooo lucky.  I like working by myself when cutting up stuff. I am sure there are tons of other times that I got lucky that I can't remember or did not even notice. My smallest homelite newer modle had a chain break (plus auto oiler) on it but it was a total piece of junk.

A local logger named Junior and his brother Max worked together all the time. Max relayed a story to me about his brother Junior's homelite xl super. If there was a bigger one it was probably that one. Junior left it at a saw shop and when he went back to pick it up a couple novice woodcutters were admiring Junior's saw and going on and on about how heavy it was. One said that he thought you would need a wheelbarrel to carry it in the woods. Junior shut them up when he said''If I couldnt take at least that big of a saw to the woods, I would just stay at home and play with mommie.

Those hooks are very useful. The fat end goes into the slots on a car frame so you actually have someplace to hook chains to. The are usually connected directly to the chains along with J hook and whatever else the towing companies use.

It's not an XRP but it looks to be in pretty good shape.

Jack works good.

Next item I gotta do some research to find out what it even is.
I hoping that it's a VFD.

I have a "Remington Logmaster" that's been hibernating in an old shed since 1978. That was the one and only time I ever heard it run. A man gave it to me when I moved here. After firing it once, I decided I'd get a new, small chainsaw for my firewood.

[edit to add:]
Found your chainsaw collection (http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,63034.0.html), loggah. I see a Remington Logmaster hanging from your rafters in one photo.

Might have to find a wandering mule to deliver this one to Kbeitz. He'd be powering that edger with it in a couple of days.

I like this one the best. The carb rotates. So if you tilt the chainsaw on its
side to cut off a tree you need to turn the carb so the gas doesn't run out.

My grand father totally rebuilt a 1919 Clectrac and hauled it from Pittsburgh to Knox county Ohio in 1937 on the back of a Dodge ton and a half .I'd imagine at about 30 MPH if that .With that crawler and a team of big Belgians and a Farmall regular  they farmed about 120 acres which must have taken forever to get the crops out .Granddad bought that old crawler from a junk yard for next to nothing according to the story .
My dad was 17 years old at the time and told of that old crawler,slow as a snail but could pull a very long line of equipment behind it .With a front mount pulley it was a real chore lining it up to run something off the belt .

on a new wire. It still worked with the old one but it was unsafe.
It was just to nice to see it get cut up for scrap. A few more presses
and I will have one for every size bit. I wont need to change bits.

The saw blade and chain came off another good looking Homelite

only took the blade and chain. The coil is off a tecumseh engine.

A few of those right angle grinders got " liberated " Ingersoll -Rand good ones .Problem was most peoples air compressor could not  supply enough air to run more than a few minutes .
I've got a 5 HP myself dumping into  two 60 gallon tanks at 160 PSI .I've got big air grinders but I seldom use them because the electric is less hassle and the lack of the exhaust air doesn't freeze your fingers .Those dang things will make you go deaf too, loud .

Yesterdays finds.

This is the chainsaw that I took the blade and chain off of last week.
The saw was still there saying (take me.... take me...) so I brought it home.
I put gas in it and cleaned it up a little and put the blade and chain back
on it and put gas in the tank. It started right up and ran fine for about 30 min.
Then the coil died, It looks and runs good enough that I'm going to wait for
another saw to come into the yard to rob a coil off of.
The blue thing on the left is a 1" impact gun. All that was wrong with that
was that the trigger was stuck. I needed to remove the handle to get it
unstuck. But now it runs fine. It's the best sounding impact I ever heard.
It sounds just like a single cly John Deere tractor when running.
In the middle is some very expensive TV or stereo  wires.
Not a bad day...

Yep a Vise holder and a tool holder. Many of my tools just slid into the hitch.
I have them on all my work benches.  I keep many tools under the bench and
just pull out what I need at the time and pin it fast. Saves a lot of room.

Another good day today...

This blower was upside down between two other tractors. So I had to roll it
over the tractors and then roll it again over a big mud pit. I looked it over
and said to myself "sure looks good" But I hate snowblowers. So I gave the
rope a pull. It had compression. I pulled it again and to my surprise it started.
I looked around to see if anyone else seen it running. I thought maybe they would
not sell it to me that one of the yard guys would want it. No one was around.
I shut it off real quick and I seen no smoke and that also surprised me being
that it was upside down. After I got it home and pumped up the tires I checked
the oil... There was none. Guess that's why it did not smoke. But it had a full
tank of gas. So I filled the oil and started it up. It started up again on the second
pull. Still no smoke... So I drove it around checking all the gears and it worked good.
I checked the arbor and no go... The small gear box is out. So I'll just wait until
another one come into the yard so I can strip it. Ebay has one for sale at $40.00
but I think I'll wait.

one but they are so expensive. One old fan to add to my collection of fans. One NEW

circle that I don't know what I'm going to do with yet.

I did good again today. I found this Globe Gravity Feed meat slicer.
It looks real good with no missing parts. But....
It needs a current relay. That's a little box that takes place of starting capacitors.
This thing runs great of you give it a little push to get it started.
Someone a long time ago told me there was a timed relay that can take place of
starting points and or a current relay but I don't remember whats it's called.
Could anyone help me out there? I know I could put a momentary push button
to start it but I would like to fix it the right way.

I found a very large avenger tripod in the junk.
I was going to buy it and I was sitting in the office
talking about it and I decided to google it on my
phone. The picture is what I found. After I showed
it to the owner he decided that he wanted to keep it.
I don;t blame him. The things people throw away...
So I did not get to bring this home.

Prices like that are why I built a 20 ft tripod for the end zone camera for the local high school football team. I used thinwall conduit (EMT) for mast, legs and for controlling the tilt of the camera. It withstood all the weather they played in and it withstood the gentle attentions of the gang of over-muscled, hormone-crazed teenagers when they'd load it in the equipment truck and toss a half ton of pads and helmets on it. Cost less than $300, including failed experiments along the way.

together and using the stuff. Then they would smash everything before dumping
it. Good while it lasted. I have about 19 junkyard within 20 miles of my home

The "cash for clunkers" deal pretty much eliminated many salvage yards in this area plus China  trying corner the market on scrap metal .
They would load old cargo ships about to the water line  and try to make one more run across the Pacific .I can't help but wonder how many are on the bottom .
National Geographic showed them cutting up scrap,ship and all in India with men with 4 feet salvage torches in loin cloths and bare footed .

I made a visit to the junkyard yesterday.  Picked up about 20' of two different kinds of 80/20 aluminum extrusions.  I can always find a use for that stuff.

I had a request for a 3 hp electric motor.  Found one in the motor pile and made $70 off that so it paid for my extrusions plus.  The motor pile is a money maker for somebody......

Saw about 10 chainsaws, they were all old or home owner types.  Projects is not something I need.  I thought it interesting a medium size Suzuki motorcycle that looked to be in too good of condition for the yard.

Got a couple of grader blades.  I can use them too recondition/modify backhoe buckets.

It is amazing what is thrown away sometimes.

I always watch for the bigger electric motors in single phase.
Anything around 5hp is money in your pocket. I smell them.
If they don't stink I can most of the time fix them if they need it.
Most of the time there is nothing wrong with them I don't touch
the 3 phase stuff. You can't give that stuff away. Right now there
is a 500hp new looking motor sitting in the yard. I bet thats more
than a 1/2ton pickup could handle in weight.

More times than not single phase motors get scrapped because the start capacitor is defective or the start switch has faulted .Generally speaking both are an easy fix .A burned out start winding not an easy fix .Leave those in the pile and walk on .

Everything goes to China. I'm sure it will be coming back to us in the form of a bomb. There are pics of ships loaded with scrap headed to Japan in the 30's You see how that turned out. By the way, I buy 3 phase motors. [I used to buy them from the scrap yard] I have to buy them from around here. Shipping is too expensive.    Muggs ::)

Our yard sells motors for 60 cents a pound.  I used to get motors a lot cheaper than that at auctions but the good auctions have dried up.

I have one static, one rotary, and a whole herd of VFD's.  Picked up two more about 6 months ago cheap.  One is reserved for a 3 phase grinder but those have been scarce for some reason.

Yes, that was at Ozark.  I just wander in, find the jewels, and check out.  Might help that I'm in the same age class as the crew. :D

Rogers has better quality, but my shopping habits have to change completely to fit in with that group.  They don't care for walk ins. ::)

I used to get great enjoyment of going to one scrap yard .Henry who was a second generation dealer never smiled but being of old school upbringing  felt if he made the first sale of the day the whole day would be profitable .Working mid nights a mile away I would be the first one often .He gritted his teeth but I got the deal of which of course he always made money,just not as much .
He did smile one day when I showed up with a dump truck full of number 1 copper .I did too when I left with 5 thousand dollars worth of Henry's money . 8)

A very good day for me today at the yard.
For many years I have collected old Gilbert erector sets.
I have over 70 some sets. I also have some Gilbert fans.
Today I found a Gilbert electric drill and stand.
This is the first one that I even seen and it's now all mine... :)  8)

I got lucky twice today. After adding the drill in the last post to my collection I
seen a display board that I bought years ago that was missing a drill. It was a
Pioneer drill. I never seen or heard of a Pioneer drill. I spent many an hour watching
E-bay for one to come up for sale. Today was my lucky day. Landed one for $20.00.
First photo is my board. Second picture is the drill I just got from E-bay today.

Once you plug in the male you have to push the two white buttons the get it apart again.

Not exactly a junkyard find but I am still excited.  I got a woodmaster 408 thickness plainer for ten bucks, a electric hand sander for 5.  A folding table that has 3/4 inch 4x8 sheet of osb board for ten bucks.  I will cut it up and use the osb and store the legs (probly forever).  My wife bought a bbq utensil set just for the lighter in it for 2.

I consider some of the stuff above as mercy buys due to the planer being so cheap.  I got it home and all I had to do was rig up a handle and it seems to work perfect and the planes are quiet and smooth.

 

 (http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/39533/003~0.jpg?easyrotate_cache=1509636553)

Now I will only have to travel to do wide boards.  Did I mention I was excited about my find or actually my uncles find for me as my uncle is the one with the planer I have been using.

You got to get up 3:00 am to be the first one at yard sales and flea

You also need to know what to look for. I look for things that I never
seen before. If I never seen it before then someone somewhere is
looking for one.

It happens to me a lot. It's one sure way I found to make money.
Just this week I found a Dynamometer in the junkyard. I had no idea
what it was until I Googled it. It's used to set the tension on cables
for bridges and towers. Sells for around $800.00 on E-bay.
I also found 36 new bandsaw blades. I will cut the longer one's down
to fit my machines. I'm sure glad I bought a blade welder.

I thought the same thing after I found out what it was. It's made for 5000lb. pull.
I was thinking that probably around the poundage needed for a saw mill band.
I'm not going to try it. I came up with a hollow hydraulic cylinder that works great
for tracking my tension and I'm done building bridges. Think I'll sell it.

I forgot to mention that at the same place I got the planer, my uncle bought an old fan, I am assuming like the one you have a picture of in this thread.  He paid $12 bucks for it.  He was very excited cause he came home and looked on ebay and one had sold for $750 and there was another one listed for $950.  Him getting his fan is probly why I got the planer.  He needed and excuse to get back in the ladies house to see if she had other interesting stuff she would sale.

Since you showed your fan on here, I thought you might find that interesting.

I'm sure some of you people won't believe this story.
A few days ago my wife said that she would like a heavy
duty sewing machine to make quilts. I said I don't think
anyone makes a good heavy duty machine today. So
today I went shopping at my junkyard store and look at
what I found. Being that I spent 30 years in the textile
field I said I can fix that. I took it home and found that
it had a broken needle. I have a cabinet of around 1000
needles from one of the factory's I cleaned out. I put in
one that looked like it should work and tried to sew. I
wasn't doing to good. So I googled on how to thread this
thing up and now it works as good as new... I'm all smiles.
Wait till wiffie gets home.  8)

Post by: gww on November 10, 2017, 10:28:14 AM
Mom has one close to what you have but it also has a reverse on it.  It used to work pretty good but now breaks the thread when you use the reverse.  I have three commercial sewing machines.  One is an old juki and the other two are cheeper chineese newer ones.

  One is a walking foot machine for light leather.  None are really used in the last few years except by me to fix all the rips I get in my clothing from having favorite pairs that I like to wear due to having lots of the right pockets on them.

My wife is back to doing all her sewing on a just a portable phaff and an overloc.

What I keep my eye out for is a good 5 thread commercial overlock. 

My wife used to home sew for a factory.  It was hard work and didn't pay much.

When I was young, we did some hand quilting.  It would take up about the whole room haveing a quilt hanging while you stithed it up.

The world has changed quite a bit with the use of plastic.

model number tag on it anywhere. I think it's a Stihl st400. I want to
research it to find out what I have and buy a recoil and a muffler for it.
Lots of other little goodies.

I looked over the saw to see if it was worth fixing. Two things I found wrong with
it. One the muffler was missing and it looks like it was run without it. I know
running a two cycle without a muffler can destroy it . But I see no burns on the
piston and it has very good compression. One of the muffler bolts was broke off in
the block. I had a very hard time drilling the broken bolt out. I used a carbide drill bit but it still drilled real hard. I resharpened the bit for every 1/32 of the hole I
drilled. The second thing is the belt was shredded.I think this is why they give up
on it. I also think this is why the recoil was missing. You need to remove the recoil
to get to the belt. So I need a recoil, belt, muffler and some bolts. Not to bad.

That is my goto saw for roof ventilation. Biggest heaviest beast but the easiest to handle while hanging off a ladder and working it with 1 hand. Also pretty close to impossible to cut through a joist or truss. The blades also last a lot longer than our vent saws.

7018's and 6011... Just what I use. Most of this stuff came from a gas line
company. I guess they are cleaning house. There was a lot more cable there
but it was under big stuff that I could not move. I have no idea how many
more rods might be under the pile. I'm going back to see if i can find the saw's
recoil tomorrow. There was 1000's of dollars worth of new in the boxes bearings.

To bad you not closer. Our local yard also got in a Onan aircooled 4 cylinder generator. It look like newish except it was taken apart. The head was off it for

In the last picture with the saw. I got the dewalt 18v battery to charge up.
The large chunk of round steel will become a centrifugal weight for my cut off saw.
The 3 sanding pads are like new. New cost for them is around $7 each. I have no
idea what the two square looking chunks of steel was used for but I though they
would be good wire spool collars. The square head bolts will go to my milling machine for hold down bolts.

Loggah, That cat gen set came from down here. The guy that got it runs a 3508 set that is almost maxed out as they add more machines. He also has a 3412. They are welding this 3512 back together this winter. It was the channel frame that was cut. The gen. is shaft connected to the diesel on this unit and they [the guys that did the cut] unbolted the shaft coupling ! The co. that owned it had to vacate the building.  P.S. hate to admit it but I,m not sawing today.

Back a page I had a picture of the chunk of round stock that I wanted
to make a centrifugal weight for my swing saw. Sometimes I think it's
cheaper to buy new than to build. I split the chunk if steel and drill tapped
it so I could slid it over my shaft and bolt it on. I'm guessing this was a
hydraulic ram pivot pin and I thought I was going to have a hard time
machining it. So the first thing I did was to drill a one inch hole in the
middle with my lathe. This turned out to be the easy part. This pin was
case hardened on the outside. Drilling the hole in the middle was easy.
Drilling the six mounting hole through the skin and countersinking was
a real pain. It only took two milling bits, two hs drill bits and four carbide
bits and three dremel grind stones to get the job done....

Many of your post weather it be wood burning, Sawmill, small tractor or just some old time common since i enjoy reading. This thread is right up my alley! If you don't mind i also have a few "head scratching" items in my shop that i would like to picture with a "what the heck is it" question.

Guess things don't change.  ::)  Getting accused of something that you were NOT doing, had NO reason to do, had NO affiliation with said charge, is not the norm for me. Asking about sawmill equip coming up for auction (value/need ect)  that i don't have much knowledge of is what i thought/know is done on forums. If i was able to buy something and make a buck is the American way, right? Seen it on here many of times. 
 As you can see i did not come back to the site for a year or 2. Reason for coming back was a good friend asked me to look at a thread to give him my thoughts. He post/reads on here a lot being a 2 time woodmizer sawmill owner.
I will delete my link to the site if you wish?

We don't delete. We ban.  Is that what you want?

So EVERYONE knows what we are talking about, this poster came on after making 9 posts. He started a topic on the general board saying he was going to an auction, and listed many items of the auction. He posted that his intent was, that if you saw something you wanted, to let him know and he would buy it and sell it back to you here for a profit.  His post was deleted for breaking our commerce rules.  He then decided he was going to debate it with me in personal messages.  that ain't going to fly in my house.  I never banned him, or called him out publicly on the forum.  He comes back after all this time, 2014, and his second post states he has a longer story why he doesn't post here.  If he would have kept his virtual mouth shut, I wouldn't have even recalled who he was. 
I still havn't banned him, but I may.

passed to my older brother. Second picture is when I got it and put a gas motor
in it back in the 80's. Third picture is with me in the 90's. Forth picture is still in

I put a lot of different tools on hitches and I got receivers on many of my benches.
All my outside benches have receivers on them for two reasons. One so no one
can steal my tools and second to take them in out of the rain. Before I did this I
put my tool on a flat plate with a flat bar under the plate and clamped everything
in my vises. The receiver works so much better. You can find cheap hitches at the
junkyard and Harbor Freight sell a class 3 hitch plate for garden tractors for $10.00

That 1/2" chain makes me tired just looking at it .I've got a few 1/2" myself and they are heavy .I drag them around if I use them . Partly because they are heavy plus the fact you can't push a chain .

I like that idea, I remember seeing a mailbox post built out of chain.
. My old mail box post is a great big chain welded together. My papaw built it and put one of them big metal mailboxes on it. A couple years ago we had to put a wood post and new mailbox up next to it because over the years as our road was repaved and the way the old one sit it was to low for the mailman to reach.

I have some 1/2" load binding chain from the hold of a C-5, there isn't anything stamped on the chain. There was a small sheet metal plate hooked to a ring but its gone now and the bent grab hook is part of the chain.

Post by: Chuck White on January 11, 2018, 01:34:05 PM
Yup, cargo chain!

Stress rated to 10,000 pounds, according to the tag, but they'll do a lot more than 10,000 pounds!

I have a couple of them!

They only have a hook on one end!

We put the two tail-ends together and bolted them with a grade 8 bolt a few years ago and put it to a stress test a few years ago, pulling a cement delivery truck out of the mud, and the 75 hp tractor with all it had did not snap the chain, and eventually freed the truck!

The bent hook is really nice, when you hook them, they stay hooked!

Sounds like a 10k working load vs break strength. The real question is, is it a 4:1, 5:1  or a 10:1 for the working load to break strength ?
Title: Re: Today's junkyard find.
Post by: starmac on January 11, 2018, 05:12:03 PM
If it is a newer chain, there should be a grade stamp on it, seems like 7 is the magical number. If it is an older chain it is probably a good one, but may not have the stamps. I have never had the dot check for the grade, but they can if they want.

1/2 in chain would only be of use to guys running lowboys or hauling heavy equipment, a general freight hauler will not use it.

I knew an old rancher that died in the early 80's, that used an old gas maytag till the day he died. He was well off for the time, and even though electric lines ran right by his ranch house the last 20 years of his life, he would not let them hook him up.
He had a nice shop full of human or gas powered tools and equipment, I would have loved to have.

Question for Kbeitz!

It depends on what it is. Metal or plastic is a good example. I get a lot of
stuff like relays, contactors and breakers. Most of the time I just say
"will you take twenty bucks for this". I help the boss out a lot with welding
and electrical so I get really good deals. Right now I'm making the yard a
can  conveyor. Best part is the yard guys don't want to keep anything. I
could never work there. My pile would be bigger than the the pile going
to the smelter.

My last job that caused my retirement was at a trash transfer station i got a lot off good things out of the containers. Sears was always throwing out good stuff, We have a jobcor center up the mountain and me and the welder loaded up on drills and grinders that someone cut the cords off. the most usefull thing i got was a pooper scupper being i have 5 dogs to clean up after.

On my welder I have 2 grooves on the drive wheel. one groove has serrations one is smooth. I always forget which is which but all I have to do is flip the wheel over.

Post by: isawlogs on January 27, 2018, 09:33:19 AM
I would like to change it to flux core.
Do I need to change the drive wheel and liner to do this ?

 On some you need to lighten up the pressure of the drive wheel on the wire. You will also have to change the tip. if using .30 wire  use .35 tip opening. As the coreflux wire is pushed through the wheels, it is crushed some, it will make your life a lot easier if the tip can alow for this wider wire to go through!!   :P   ;)

The reason I would like to change it is that I already have a really good

Dad has a small 90 amp one that works good for light stuff out of the shop where wind can be a factor but for heavy stuff I still go to the old buzz box.  I have a small 140 amp gas and as was stated you just turn the wires and change the tip to go to flux core welding.
Title: Re: Today's junkyard find.
Post by: pinefeller on January 27, 2018, 11:43:03 AM
unless you are welding in remote areas or windy conditions dont bother. it will weld just fine, but the cost of flux core will overrun the cost of gas shielded and it is also smokey like stick. so no real benefit. if i had 2 welders i would setup one on like .025 for sheet metal work then the other on .035 for heavy duty work.

When I just had a 140 amp wire machine I still used a stick a lot. I bought a 300 amp wire welder with a suitcase and 75 feet of cable, and eventually gave my old buzz box away. I still used stick on portable jobs.

If I had a large job to do outside in the eastern New Mexico wind, and by large I am talking about a day to a weeks worth of welding, I would change over to flux core wire, but generally would just use a wind break and gas.

I got rid of my small wire welder, when I bought the large one, and as time went on, wished I had kept it for light weight welding, so I second the idea to keep it and stay with gas and small wire on it.

Gas wire feeds are okay I guess .I once worked at Baldwin -Lima -Hamilton as a welder .This company was where the original Shay locomotive was built .Later the world famous Lima cranes .
Some time in the 60's they had some wire welders normally used for thinner metal of which they did excellent .However being rather old school I prefer good old electric arc stick welding for most things except sheet metal . I don't have a wire welder but it would be handy at times .

I learned to weld on a Lincoln 225 amp buzz box and could weld just about anything.  And while I was a nurse, I didn't weld a single thing. Then one day my son asked me if I'd weld spades on 50,000 end posts for his blueberry farm and I sad sure, why not. I learned mig in a hurry. The first day, they brought back a few posts that the spades had broken off of but after that I figured out how to do it. Now for tough jobs I still prefer good old stick but for most things, wire is quick and easy. I have both at this time and wouldn't want to be without either. Although , I did go through a period of time that if I wasn't welding a spade on a 9' piece of pipe from the oil fields I couldn't mig weld to save my soul.  :D

When you work with dirty rusty junkyard metals you learn to like stick.
I paid $2800.00 for my mig and it just sits most of the time.
My stick welder has a DC attachment and I have been using it since
I was 16 years old. Mig welders work great on new metals or clean
metals.

Post by: thecfarm on January 28, 2018, 08:48:28 AM
I guess I don't know what I am doing. My metal sits outside and I have a mig with flux core. Does run off 220,I had one that ran off 110 but when I moved here I need more power. Duty time was bad with the 110 unit too. I have built a few things,they are still together,no repairs needed,so I must be doing something right. All my welding is done outside,that's why the flux core. I don't weld much stuff thicker than ¼" either.
I also buy wire by the 10 pound spools,those 2 pounders don't last me no time.

stick welders you can stick them  :)   and yes with mig the metal needs to be good and clean don't know much about the flux core but jmop if your going to use it may as well use a stick   I like the fact that with gas you can weld over your weld with out stopping and chipping  ;D
Title: Re: Today's junkyard find.
Post by: starmac on January 28, 2018, 03:54:23 PM
Wire does need the metal to be cleaner than stick, but then your weld with stick will be better if the metal is clean too.

They do make a wire to use on dirtier metal, it is called dual shield or at least dual something, I doubt if it comes in the little 2 pound spools.
Title: Re: Today's junkyard find.
Post by: Kbeitz on January 28, 2018, 05:04:32 PM
I guess the biggest reason I stick with stick is that I get so many
free rods from the junkyard. We have gas lines going through our
area and the company's waste so much stuff. They will use a few
rods out of a 50lb box and toss the rest. Same with grinding stones.
I bet I have around 300-400 lbs of rods stocked up now. I burn
around 100lbs every summer.

I have not acetylene welded anything in years, and the last time I tried was a total joke, but I have a very good friend that uses an acetylene and what he calls wonder rod to weld aluminum, it is as strong as anything welded with a tig machine and someone that knows how to use it. You can literally cut  aluminum pop cans in half and he will weld them back together and there is no way you can break his weld, you will tear the can first.

Kbeitz, I have an old welder, not near as old as yours, but still pretty old. The story was, it came out of a ship yard, have no idea if that is true or not, but it is a heavy devil. When I got it you couldn't turn the handle to adjust the amperage, I took it apart to free it up and the handle is hooked to a threaded rod that screws into some threaded hardwood nuts. It is in storage, so can't look at it right now, but it is 2 1/2 feet tall or so and round, probably 16 inches or so in diameter, with a crank on the top. I want to say it is a smith brand, but could be wrong on that.

Post by: Al_Smith on January 28, 2018, 09:19:54 PM
Brazing comes under the category  of "hard solder " .Meaning you aren't fusing the base metal as in welding .Silver soldering properly is  called silver brazing .It's all in the terms which can vary locally  .
As I understand it that method uses a material that melts at around 650-700 degrees but aluminum melts at around 1200 .Which is not saying it would not be strong  nor saying it would not work ..Again the only way I've ever seen aluminum welded was either MIG or heli arc .I've tried the stick rods but they aren't worth a hoot ,total waste of time .
Title: Re: Today's junkyard find.

My friend that uses the wonder rod and acetylene torch, welded up a bell housing that kept breaking. I had had them tig welded and mig welded, but he built them up with his rod and solved the problem.
My son uses tig for 99% of his aluminum welding and I feel it is the best, but I am no good with tig, so have a mig set up. I have used the dc rod and it works, but only used it on portable locations where a mig or tig was not available.

A Lincoln 400 amp mig for steel or aluminum a 300 amp tig and stick and plasma for just cutting. every welder has a different way of getting the job done. I need all of them but that little mig is just so handy if i burned it up today i would have a new one in short order. The difference i found running flux or gas deeper penatratraion with gas . I have run flux and gas on some welding, very nice. just remember carbcleaner and welding should never mix.And there is no good way to weld galvanized metal the fumes will get you.

I had a similar welder for years. Mine was a bit newer, but used hard. the motor wore out to where it smoked like a freight train and the last year I used it the exciter was going bad, I had to manually wind it up past the governor to get it to excite the first time of a welding session. For some reason you could then weld all day without ever having to do it again.

There was an almost new floor scrubber battery operated there today.
If no one else take it I might take the DC motors out of it. I bet

I had to look that one up... I see there is left and right handed ones.
Expensive little things...  This is what I found...

Clinch cutters are designed to have a sharp and very hard heat-treated cutting edge for quick and easy shearing of nail clinches.  The striking surface is not as hard to save the life of your driving hammer.  The handy pointed end is used as a hoof pick or nail hole cleaner (pritchel). A gouge is used for under-cutting the clinches. A clinch block is used to set nail clinches on a horses hoof.

The first portable welder I owned was a kohler powered miller roughneck ac only. I gave 100 bucks for it with no leads, it ran good but did not generate even a spark, so I sold it for the same 100 bucks. The guy I sold it too had it fixed and put a new set of leads on it, plus built a real nice welding trailer to mount it on. A month or so later I had bought an old school bus for storage for 75 bucks, he wanted it and traded the welder new leads and trailer for it.
The very first time I used it was a 1700 dollar job, I had mounted it in my service truck where it lived till the engine wore out, I bet that little welder generated 10,000 or better in the time I used it. I gave it to a friend that worked for me occasionally, he overhauled it and used it periodically until he passed on.

I bought that sander from Grizzly in 02 for $230.  The same machine sells today for $460.  The reason I bought it was because of the glowing reviews and cost.  A comparable Delta was $1,200 something which I could not afford.

As it turned out the reviewer had to be on the take.  While the sander does work, the table mounts are flimsy, and dust collection poor.  Overall a low quality machine.  I am thankful it was available as it is a lot better than nothing.

At present I have one of those expensive Delta's in about the same condition as your machine.  I'm slowly getting it restored.

I wanted to put this somewhere and I guess this is as good as a place as any.
I have had this so many years that I don't remember where or when I got it.
1951 Onsrud  Turbine Pneumatic E2GA router. Still works great.
Googling it I can only find the Patent for it. Nothing else.

You should have used that on your router sled mill you are building.  Then, duct the exhaust to clear the chips as you go!

It's a power hog. It would cost a small fortune to run it.
I'm thinking I would need around a 10hp compressor to keep up.

 :D I think a lot of those old air tools were designed to run off of plant air .Dang things will make you deaf listening to them .
I had a friend who was a tool and die maker telling of a small Amish machine shop in Indiana  where everything was air driven from a big diesel air compressor .He said it was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think .
I suppose though that was a better option than using line shafts with a team of mules for power .God love them I don't know how they do what they do but they do .

   Less than a mile from here is a big Amish welding/machine shop where they have all sorts of air powered equipment including band type cut off saw, shears, drill presses, sheet metal break, and a Series 2 Bridgeport mill. In a smaller separate building there is a John Deere diesel powering the compressor plus a generator for the welding equipment. I've had them do a few jobs and enjoy looking at the set up.

It they ran stuff from a constant pressure open center  pressure header it would be a more modern version of a line shaft .Certainly not as ear splitting as air .I can't imagine how many valves something like that would use .Not to mention hydra-motors hoses and what not .Can you imagine how much diesel fuel you could burn in a day,mercy me .I mean ya gotta do what you gotta do but economically you can't get much cheaper than utility  based power .That aside they do get-er-done .

Hydra-motors on everything.  bought a 20" planer off them that
I had to change back to electric. We have a local auction that has
tools in it all the time that has been changed to hydra-motors.

We have a small Amish community here that has an auction on occasion and surprisingly, tools go for very fair prices. If a guy wanted "Yard Art" tools, they just about have to give them away.
They also have a little store that we visit a couple times of year just for the cheese.
I originally visited them to check out their EZ Boardwalk JR and decided then to buy mine. Those folks have sawn more lumber with their mill than I ever will if I work until noon the day I get buried.

40 years ago the state said they was going to build a new road through this area. 40 years of unfulfilled promises. They are just now doing it... One BIG road. The Central Susquehanna Valley Thruway. This is the northern end of four-lane Highway 11/15 just north of Selinsgrove, Pa., PennDot has started a highway project, 40 years in the making, that will continue the four lanes to I-80. It will require a bridge unlike any other in north-central Pennsylvania.

 A near-mile-long concrete monster, with piers that soar more than 180 feet above the river, it will be taller than all but a handful of buildings in Harrisburg. To build the bridge will require cutting a saddle through the nearby hill. To cross the highlands west of Shamokin Dam will require another series of bridges -- and more than 4.2 million cubic yards of earth moving in total (or enough dirt to fill Beaver Stadium five times).

Even the price is huge. The bridge alone will cost $155 million, the entire eight-year-long project will total more than $650 million when all of the planning, property acquisition and building is complete. Between this and all the new gas line coming to this area it's a busy place.

There are a couple of truck stops there, one on the right and another past a light or two on the left.  I just remember the first time I ended up there wondering how on earth I had taken such a wrong turn, the next time I realized there was no wrong turn, it was by design.  Of course I had no money left in my pocket to spend at the truck stop given the PA toll fees one encounters heading east before that wonderful exchange.   :o

Good deal on the 743. I had a 91 for about 18 years. Had the Kubota diesel as well. Great machine. Tough as they come and no computers to go haywire. I had to do an axle bearing on mine. They have to be done from the inside out.The rear ones anyways. I changed them all so I wouldn't have to do it again. You have to remove the pump/tranny/whatever you wanna call it. There is a constant velocity ujoint between the motor and tranny that needs to be greased every so often. Motor has to be rotated to the exact right position and you have to raise the cab and basicly become Houdini to get at the three nipples..You'll see it when doing the bearings.

I had two others that came out of a motor home that was 4000 watt.
I would think it would depend on the size of the camper.
What I like is that these are low RPM engines that last forever.
I wish I knew the HP of the engine. It's not marked anywhere.
I bet it might make a good mill engine.

Google says it's a  9.5 HP. Displacement, 304 cc

I forget just what it was about it, but I pilled apart a smaller onan generator and the engine was pretty much especially built for that purpose, not suitable to use on anything else.

Don't give up on the tapered shaft engines. Cut the armature off
the generator next to the windings. Slide the sawed off chunk
back on the tapered end of the engine. But a bolt through the
hollow shaft and bolt it tight. Now you have a normal engine.
I've done this many times.

I have one of these!  Came out of a motorhome, and is 4,000 watt and runs at 1,800 RPM!

Only issue I have is I need a coil for it!  It takes what is referred to as a double coil!

Seemed to run forever on 5 gallons of gas!

The 4kw onanas were used on motor homes that had only 1 rooftop air conditioner. The coils are unique, but can be had. They fire both plugs at the same time..A clutch off of a golf cart will fit the tapered crankshaft with a little lapping.

My parents had a 7500 Onan with a 3 cylinder Yanmar water cooled diesel on a motor home ..It would not carry the load until it reached operating temperature nor shut down until it cooled  below a certain temp .Very well designed .Glow plugs, it probably would have started on the North pole .
Being a 4 pole generator running at 1800 it's probably a 16 or 18 HP engine .Should be able to tell from the engine name plate by referencing the model number .
We had a little Miller welder generator with a pancake Onan .3600 RPM  for welding which was about 5 quarts of gas per hour .1800 for generation which I have no idea but it went a long time .It was an 18 HP if memory serves .,5,000 watt .

An 873 is a serious machine. For 1500.00, that is like stealing. Some would pay more than that for an 873 carcass ;D

But I'm kinda disappointed that it's not a kubota engine.

One of our A300 Bobcats has a Deutz in it. Great engine. No antifreeze. Just oil and air for cooling. Always starts. Stingy on fuel too.

Kbeitz there should be some kind of alarm to let you know if the belt breaks or comes off.  That or some kind of tattle tale switch to shut it off should that happen.  Without the fan turning the motor will be toast pretty quick.  Use to have a couple Liebherr 921 trackhoes.  They had the air cooled Deutz,  My ex partners little brother got one of them too hot....not good.  Banjo

i was actually giong to call the guy that did it last and see what he used, its due again. i was told this phenomenon has to do with being oil cooled instead of antifreeze and not being turbo charged. im pretty shure he said texas refinery so it should be rotella t (i believe shell is owned by T R. im used to losing a half gallon or so between changes in pretty much all large equipment ive maintained and black oil by 200hrs. this engine has been unbelieveable, no leaks, no burning, good power and pretty quiet.

Hiring a rollback can be the simplest, and relatively cheap.

We move our JD 250 with a car trailer occasionally, but it's a bit overloaded.  If you do that, block the midpoint of your ramps or they may not slide back into their "home".  Just like ours no longer do thanks to my brother.   ;)

I'm confused. Did Kubota make the Deutz engine. When I search for my starter
number ( first image ) on E-bay it take me to this page of information (image 2)
Applications all say Kubots but if you look down the page you can see it says
Bobcat with my starter number (6685190). So is my engine a Deutz or Kubota
or both?

I understand the new epa compliant duetze engines are water cooled, I have not seen one myself, so could be heresay.

I doubt Kubota makes or owns duetze, and a duetze just going by looks, can not be mistaken for a kubota either, at least the older air cooled ones can't.

I do seem to recall my son telling me when he had to get a starter for his bobcat that the one starter fit all of them, not sure exactly what he meant.

Kbeitz

I own a 2003 Bobcat 873 with the deutz motor and it looks just like yours. IMO your motor is the deutz.

The starter #s you quote may not be the original starter. My starter is a DENSO [japan] bobcat #666 7825 or Denso # 228000-5731.

In terms of oil, engine oil I use shell Rotella T6 5-40 synthetic. Bobcat uses 15-40. In terms of hydraulic/hydrostatic oil, I bought a good supply of Bobcat brand oil [very costly] because I could NOT get any specs off it [bobcats oil pails] to try to buy cheaper alternate. In future I will use Shell brand oil once my Bcat oil gone.

I also have the maintenance manual and many filter numbers, etc if you want any info, PM me.

You guys are  triggering my mud PTSD  I am having flash backs to the time I stepped out of the 8920 and about one yard away was an intake  fish skeleton.   It was helpful that mud had a clay bottom to it.    Heck I could leave all four wheels spinning go have lunch and come back with nothing changed.

And speak about mud season?  I have seen it in each of the 12 months.   Yes thats right there are years we have a week or more of mud in each month all year.   Come March it will spit snow every third day the other two will be in the mid or high 30's.   Yeah beautiful that.  Warm enough to make endless mud but not warm enough to get that snow gone and dried out.   Not that it matters because more snow/sleet is never more than tweo days away.   

Does that sound traumatized?

A number of years ago I spent a winter of discontent working on 42 miles of 20" high pressure gas line .It went from an area known as the great black swamp in NW Ohio .
Welded pipeline construction of Rosebud Mich had the contract .They had a D6 Cat swamp tractor with 36" pads and a long under carriage that would walk over mud you'd sink to your knees in .However the D8 side booms and Cat 245 excavators would not .
  Most of work was done in dead of winter which just happened to be a cold one with night temps often 20 below .Two feet of frozen tundra the 245 Cats went  through as if it were butter .The machinery was never shut off .The big crawlers  carried a couple hundred gallons of fuel .It was the spring thaw before they ran into trouble .
  It was interesting .They used the D6 swamper to clear about a mile and a half of snow ahead of the spread so it could freeze up and hold the side booms .I was only installing the electrical gauging etc not working on the line itself .42 miles in 42 days .Pipeliners are a different breed of cat for sure

  They talk of digging down 12 feet and uncovering logs that sank building the early roads through that quagmire .Now that's mud .It took about enough clay tile to circle the globe several times and enough drainage ditches to equate to the Panama canal to get-er- done .Imagine that ,mules and slip scoops . :o

Technically it's not roller chain. Flat detachable ag chain. The tool is called a detacher.  I have several sawmill stories regarding that type of chain, one includind a broken hand when i was holding the chain in the detacher and the guy swinging the hammer missed the chain by 6 inches.

Post by: Jeff on March 06, 2018, 06:49:51 PM
All it is is a holder. The different slots are for different size chain. You could do the same thing with a vice, but its hard to carry a vice out to where most of these chains break! You slide a link in the slot, bend the adjacent link so that the slot in it lined up with the end of the link you are working on, then you use a hammer to either beat the inks apart, or together.

Comment on that video. Going to using paddles made from heavy belting instead of wood extends the life of the chain big time.  With wood or metal paddles, there is no wiggle room for when the inevitable stick or chunk of debri gets in there. The belted paddles will push past where the ridigid paddles wil pin bind and break.

Good day today... I got 16 sharp blades that will fit my mill. I'm not sure if they are new or not. They was coiled up and they are very sharp. I can't tell if they was used. But I'm happy. I'll run them till they break.
I got a cheap 12.000lb winch (Badlands) The only thing I found wrong with it is that's it's missing the release handle. I guess I can build one because I can't find anywhere that sell parts for them.I guess it's a Harbor freight special. I got 3 more cans of nails. This has been a special year for nails. I got two more spoke wheels for my bench projects. I got a nice Honda engine.

There is a scrap metal place locally, but all you can do is look through the fence.  They won't let you look around.  The only thing I have been able to get from them was a piece of metal I saw and went to the office and asked about.  He said come back tomorrow and one of the guys will get it out for you.  I figured .... yea I bet they will, but they had it layed out for me. I paid a good price for what they were fixing to cut up but it worked for me.  It was the metal I put on the back of my logging winch.  It was something they got from one of the local metal fab. shops.

We have 2 major manufacturing companies in the area that used to let all the "scrap" go to employees, now both I think have to haul it straight to recycling ::).  It's enough to make a grown man cry to see what gets thrown away from just those 2.  My last score (years ago) was a bunch of 6"x1/2"x 4' flat iron, cut offs from something, I'm down to my last piece :'(.

Within a 50 mile radius we have around 25 junkyards or more.
I only take a very small amount of very good stuff. You should see the stuff I don't take.
It's like when I bring home electrical stuff. I take a hand full of thing out of 55 gal drums of stuff.
I could never bring it all home.

I use to haul alot of metal home from my past job. Sometimes I would find a real nice piece and try to get a slip for it,but than be told,I can't let you have that. So I stopped digging out the real nice stuff. ::)  Some of the guys thought I was odd taking all that stuff home.City people,what do they know. I have probably ten 5 gallons buckets of nuts,bolts and washers I brought home. Maybe only a coffee can at a time,but it added up. I have them almost all sorted by sizes.  Got tired of spending 15 minutes looking for bolts,nuts and washers.

We have only one place that buys junk metals (CHEAP), they also sell new metal at fair prices for here, will order anything you need too.

Anyway a couple of years I was in there and their price list of what they paid was on display, leas was something like 12 cents a pound. I was needing some lead and ask if they would sell any, the person waiting on me at first said sure, but when he ask a manager what the price would be, he said they couldn't sell any to me.

At the time I thought he just didn't want to let me know what the going price was since they were only paying 12 cents, but I know a little about the business, and they are generally under contract to supply so many pounds to their buyers to get the best price, and they may no have had any excess.
This year I was in there getting a weight slip for a load of logs, and in the floor was a box full of nice lead ingots, that had been cast in lyman molds, which I took home with me. I paid the going rate, but it was nice clean lead

Today I needed to coil up about half of what i found. One band blade I could not coil up for the life of me. I bet I spent 20 minutes trying to coil that one band blade. I could not do it....

I had one once that I could coil but it absolutely would not stay coiled. Have you ever noticed that after coiling a band that your hands are not positioned properly for uncoiling.  I thought about stepping on it or holding it between my knees but it was the hot summertime and I wasn't wearing boots and carharts, but shorts and barefoot. I was only setting the bands, no need for all that PPE right? Wrong! The only thing to do was to throw the thing and hope it got far enough away before it opened up and got me.

What got me was I coiled 5 blades before this one. It was the last one. I tried many times and it went back to the junk pile. Thinking back I think it was the next to last one. But I went back to it but it won. If it's still there when I go back in a few days maybe I'll try again. I'll look for kinks.

Take your bands and lay them flat on a concrete floor.  If you have one that won't lay flat its sprung.  It may or may not coil ok but guaranteed it will never saw right.

That's something to check for if you have a band that's sharp and set right but won't saw.

I bet with the proper application of heat and cool you can unspring them. not sure what it will do to the rest of the blade though. may just be creating hard spots that are going to break later.

Kbeitz,

   Do you have a big department style store with various departments for plumbing, electrical, tools, carpentry, lawn & garden, etc. with a bunch of bins where you put all this stuff on display for sale? If you do when I can find an excuse to come shopping I'm going to route us that way and come check it all out.
Not much is for sale. I put everything away in bins and racks for my building stock. I could never build all the things I do if I had to buy all this stuff. Every time I see something new I say now what can I build out of that. Everythings got it's place or I would never be able to find it again.

That's an understatement.  I take stuff apart before I toss the bad stuff and save the nut, bolts, springs, etc.  I drop them in a PB jar and put it on the shelf.  Well, I spent 3 days dumping them out, one at a time, sorting, sorting, sorting.  I have about 250 separate containers with 10 to 100's of items in them.  I got tired of trying to find something I KNEW I had, somewhere...

Have you been to my place? :D
But I have started to sort my nuts,bolts and washers. All by sizes too. Lock washers,flat washers too. All the springs,hooks,and all that other stuff is put in one bucket for now. Now all the bolts need to be sorted by length. If I am not careful I will be able to pull a draw out and have the right bolt in my sights. :o  I have a bunch of flat magnets. Just about the size of those labels you buy on a sheet. I can write what is in a draw and put the magnet on the draw. That would be great. I have 5 gallon buckets of bolts,nuts and washers. I don't want to say 25 gallons,but I think I am right. Might even be on the low side.

My wife went with me out to my shop on Friday and helped me sort a small portion of the stuff we took out of her dad's barn. We've been saving peanut butter jars and the like for some time now. This is the first chance we've had to get this stuff put away and there is a whole lot more to go. I've got everything from rusty nuts & bolts to motors, gear boxes and old circle sawmill parts.  And I'm collecting more. Craigslist free stuff sometimes has treasures you wouldn't believe, I always check it.

I don't want to say 25 gallons,but I think I am right.

A couple weeks ago I picked up a metal bucket about 2.5-3 gallon full of stainless bolts.  Sizes range from 3/16 to 7/16 (most being 3/8") lengths from 2" up to 4-1/2".  Ninety nine and one half pounds.  Based on counts/jar I put it at 1,500 to 1,800 bolts.  That took about 8 hours to sort.  Not bad for $20 on CL.

Update:  As you can see in the pictures, my estimate earlier of 250 containers was a bit low.  I counted at least 400 between the two set of cabinets.  The jars in the green metal cabinets (with red and green lids showing) and the top two rows on the front left white rack are all stainless.

I take a hot melt glue gun and take one bolt,nut or washer out of my drawer and glue it on front so I know what I have in each draw. It's easy to change when needed. My mixed drawers are just marked mixed. This also works for nails and screws.

Organized. Good job.
I found steel cabinets,I think used for cards,like with a hole in the bottom,like to keep tax records? Draws are about 4 inches by a foot long. There are 54 draws.I have some stuff in there. That is where most of the small nuts and bolts will go. A small coffee can fit nice in the draws.  When ever I go to the dump,I pick up those big gallon cans. Hard to fine big tin cards now. Most coffee cans are cardboard now. The brand I buy is still tin,so far.
It is so much easier to walk up to something and pull out a draw and there it is. I do the pull out the draw and the paw through a bucket to find what I need. The pull out the draw keeps me sane. ;D

I picked up this 5x8 tilt trailer for $50.  It came with a big ratchet strap and a good length of chain with hooks.  The deck boards, tires, and receiver need replaced.  It should be an easy fix.

A few weeks back I saved these two pieces from going in a dumpster.  I replaced the carburetor on the quad and got both running yesterday.

I grabbed this set of leaf springs from the dumpster also.  I've been looking for some good forging steel.  There's plenty here to keep me busy for a while.  I was told they came off of an old flat bed truck.

Sweet!  I picked one up in similar condition at an auction last fall.  I guess noone knew what it was.  Paid $7.50 for the whole lot it was in.  They go for $2-300 regularly.  I bought it to use it as intended though.   ;D  Just need to get my moulder running...    :-\

Times are a changing. What us older folks call a junkyard are now called take off auto parts places. I graduated HS in 1979. Couple of days right at the end we had to show up at school with nothing to do.
 So some off us guys got the idea we wanted to go to the local junkyard and try and find some parts for one of the guys car. We went down and talked to the assistant principal and told him out plans and could we get a pass to go out. Now he was an older feller with probably 30 years under his belt. He laughed and said in all his time he had heard a lot of excuses but never a bunch of high school students asking to leave to go to the junk yard.

I got to try out the floor sander today. I had to replace the cord a broken handle and two casters. I had a hard time finding casters that would work, I sanded the bottom of a slab bench thinking I would get sanding swirls from the sanding disc but to my surprise I did not.  This is what I'm using for the casters. I'm very happy with this unit.

I picked up 21 more 150" band blades yesterday. I wont be buying new blades for a while. This set really looks good. I got a few one inch and a few two inch to try out. I found out that 21 bands really got some weight to them.

I deliver product to the big box stores every day. Where I unload at their scrap hopper is close by. I just have to look in it to see what they throw away. Yesterday the hopper had 12 new in the box overhead garage doors and lots more new items. Those items CANNOT be bought.

Most places are like that. The company was reimbursed by the insurance co. Item are to be junked. Then they end up in the junkyard where I find them.
