Old Corley Edger Project
« on: June 12, 2019, 03:37:11 PM »
Posted on the sawmill forum about this thing a while back and have come to the conclusion that the restoration project is not for me.

Bones seem to be pretty solid.  As best as I can tell everything that's supposed to turn or move (feed rollers, blade collars, blade shaft) turns or moves.  There are quite a few repairs done on it, and a few more repairs that will need to be done.

I contacted Corley and they gave me a couple pieces of literature on a similar model (Steel Weld), though it doesn't seem the be the exact one.

I'll answer any questions or inquiries to the best of my ability.

I have read, understand, and agree to the terms of posting an ad on the Forestry Forum.

Sure wish you were about 8hrs closer. Looks like it would be a good project

Tough as nails when you get it going, bones look all there just get the steel wool out and start using elbow grease.  Lack flat belts on the right and a motor and v belts on the left and teeth. Had one just like it years ago ran it off a small Detroit diesel worked great but had a wood frame. I think it had some kick back links hanging down boards went in but not back.  I also used a counter weight to lift the front head if boards did not want to feed etc.
