Brand New Boat Anchor
« on: March 02, 2013, 03:58:14 PM »
Well, I went to look at an old Belsaw 802 twin edger and couldn't help but drag it home. looks like it's going to be a while before it cuts again but at least it's a place to start. 8)

 8) Hey, it ain't all that bad, it does still have some paint on it in some places.  ;D :D  That will be a nice edger once you give it a go over, a little elbow grease and some TLC will go far.  :)

Surprising enough, most everything is free. The moveable saw is frozen on the arbor but I think it'll come loose fairly easy. Infeed/outfeed rollers all spin though the bearings are all bad. main bearings spin nice and smooth, but no visible place to grease them. blades are 12" so hopefully it will go to 4" lumber.

The worst of it seems to be bent and welded, and welded bent issues... fortunately I should be able to deal with that. :)

That looks like it's going to be a project. Looks like lots of fun :D
It will be nice when it's done though.

btw, I almost forgot, the guy I bought this from also has what he called a left hand mandrel for driving a circle mill saw. He said it is threaded differently for driving the saw from the carriage side so you don't have the drive shaft between you and the boards/flitches etc.

I bought the 48" saw that he was going to use, but have his contact info if anyone is interested.

So anyways, I'm thinking that the best thing to do is start from scratch and basically build a new edger based on this design.

What would the rpm limit be for those saws? I'm thinking of using the same feed speed ratios but cranking the input rpm up. I do have access to some 40hp range diesel engines and can fabricate the frame etc out of steel.

Does anyone know what the main shaft operating rpm range would have been for the original belt driven pto design?

A couple of safety issues to consider...

You need to have the top of your saw blade well above the top of the boards you are edging. The less blade is exposed at the top, the greater the chances of a board getting fired back at the operator.

Find out what the maximum RPM is before you run it, and don't exceed that limit. Also don't move the main support bearings further apart and don't add anymore weight to the main shaft. If you do any of these, there is a good chance you will set up a resonant condition that can cause something to fail suddenly. One of my former high school classmates lost her husband when the sawmill he was refurbishing blew apart.

If you are going to build a new edger then you have lots of parts you could steal off of your anchor.

I certainly don't want things, inc saw inserts, flying apart on me... also, I have been thinking, why would I ever want to manhandle a 4" thick slab?  :D

I may well take you up on that offer.  :)

If you are going to build a new edger then you have lots of parts you could steal off of your anchor.

I was thinking of copying the pieces that are there, with improvements where things have not stood up, particularly the bearings, however, the whole thing really looks beat up. pretty well everything I inspect closely is bent, nonetheless its probably a good reference.  :)
