Might be nice to get bench tubes chromed... There is a bumper plating business here in town that I assume could do them. Might be too pricey.
Some of the chrome plating on my Goldie's way tubes has been eaten through be corrosion but after 50 grit, 150 grit, 320 grit and 400 grit, they polish up just fine with paste wax. They slide pretty well but the locks hold very well.

New Speed Changer Grease

Post by ddvann79 »

A new speed changer came in the mail today. I felt it best to avoid dealing with a bent shaft and bent ears. The quadrant teeth are neatly caked with lithium grease or whatever it is. Should it be removed or is it intended to be in place during use? Seems like it would attract a lot of dust.

I also noticed that the gear on the face of the speed changer came with the beveled side down. Also, the worm screw is firmly set against the back of the dial. No play along the shaft as with my old one.

Yes I now believe the beveled side belongs down. When I created the reassembly thread, I was having a clearance problem with the crank that reversing it 'fixed'. Thread has been corrected!.

I would leave the grease as is. If it collects dust, it can be replaced with graphite or whatever be yer choice

Far more important is sheave shaft lubrication and sedate slowing speed down adjustment.

That screw is a newer design that apparently has a raised slotted portion. We be interested where the nut/end of screw location ends up after 'high speed adjustment' with the 'new' screw'. Also if it needed to be moved much from 'as shipped' position.(i.e. Are they preadjusting it during speed changer assembly to eliminate the need at final assembly of headstock).

Looks like someone with some brass nuts redesigned that speed-control from my version. We need those!

At high speed the screw was about 1/8" above the nut, which was about where it was as shipped. I still don't have the belt within 1/8" of the lower sheaves but I'm tired of fiddling with it. 1/4" will just have to do until I get my patience tank refilled.

Completion!

Post by ddvann79 »

The new motor came in from Bill Mayo this weekend and I got everything reassembled. The U-drive screws for the nameplate on the headstock came in tonight and the danger sticker in place. I still have a few accessories and arbor to put the finishing touches on but I'm calling this thing DONE!

Here are some photos of the completed 1962 Goldie. She runs great. Thanks, Bill! He installed a reversing switch, new toggle switch, new bearings, sheaves, cord and basically a whole new motor.

She really looks good! Great job! You can take pride in that!

Consider putting her in the 'restored' thread by shipwright!

You are doing a fantastic job of restoration. It is like a new production release gibing the machine still another twenty five to thirty years of usability. Great job.

I'm looking forward to viewing your next video. Hope you have greater success than I have been having. I started and scrapped at least three sessions.
