Re: A few questions about restoring a Mark V

The quill return spring moves about half a turn without springing back and makes some noise in that range. Beyond that it does wind up and spring back but not sure if that initial 1/2 turn is how this is supposed to work or not. I'm guessing not. See this videos [youtube=]https://youtu.be/j1yAttguB...

Re: Greenie rebuild issues

The part numbers do change, but I'm not aware of any actual compatibility issue between the Greenie parts and the newer versions you have. In your last pic though, it is evident that the Worm Control Shaft (worm gear that drives the quadrant) is not in the proper position or not staying in that posi...

Re: A few questions about restoring a Mark V

The plastic part you referred to in #3 above is called the Drive and Ring. This part can exhibit wear, especially with a single bearing quill. You can check its fit on the quill when you have it off. IIWM I'd be likely to replace it if I was replacing the quill bearing. They are about $9.50 new from...

Re: Greenie rebuild issues

It appears to me that your high speed adjustment is still off, allowing over rotation of the quadrant. There is a long setscrew in the speed control assembly that normally will be the high speed mechanical stop. If you observe where the belt rides in the Motor Sheaves, you'll see it moving outward a...

Re: More On Disappointed In MiterSet

One thing about the MiterSet that I keep going back to: I don't have a MiterSet, so I 'zero' my miter gauge per the SS procedure, or some improvement on it. Meaning I set it 90 degrees to the plane of rotation as best I can. Before I do that I've set my table so the miter slots are as near to parall...

Re: Greenie rebuild issues

There should be a key in the idler shaft preventing sheave rotatation relative to the shaft or each other. If you can rotate the idler looking between the sheaves the way you have it in the picture you should see either a key or the keyway. Just for confirmation, you've replace both idler shaft shea...

Re: If you are interested in what looks like a good deal

...And now I've started looking at the dewalt 1/4 sheet battery sander(DCW200B) as a possible future purchase and I wonder what type connection it might need??? Have to see if the stores have one to look at. More on this later. Ed I can't answer the hose adapter questions, but I bought the same RO ...

Re: Saw blade arbor

I've never seen a 30mm arbor for the Shopsmith. Your arbor is most likely 1-1/4", but you'd need to check to confirm. There are new and used 5/8" arbors readily available from Shopsmith and ebay, and I'm sure others. There are 30mm to 5/8" bushings available. I've used 1" to 5/8&...

Re: Strip Sander wheel and bearing

Very nice Ed. How much do you intend to cut the tubes for this sanding shorty? Will it have a main table? Do you intend to mount anything to the Strip Sander at the traditional drive shaft location?

Re: GFCI protected circuits

I know we are way off track from the intent of this thread. As a layman, I'd like to be able to depend on the 'licensed electricians' to know this stuff. Here's reality. I'm looking at buying a new home in Texas as a rental. I presume it was wired by a licensed electrician. When I looked on my own I...
