Everything Mark 5 / V - Technical info, documentation, links

Post by mickyd »

With the volume of various threads and posts related to technical info on the Mark 5 / V machines, I saw it fitting to start a thread that can compile 5 / V related information in one place. It will either contain the info directly or link out to appropriate areas. Informational commentary and dialog is welcome. To keep the thread on topic may be difficult. We'll see how this works.

newbie with a greenie.

Post by robodad »

I have an A-headstock greenie from my dad. I use it infrequently but when it kept tripping the breaker, and after cruising this forum, I decided I needed to lubricate. The motor and belts were replaced about 10 years ago.

In drill press position.
Motor dropped.
Control sheave removed(and drive belt). Belts in decent shape.
No lubrication holes except on floating sheave(as expected).
Not a lot of sawdust inside. Overall things look pretty good except porkchop which is not the subject of this thread.
Poly V-belt (or Gilmer) in place.

After I finished lubrication (I am still in drill press position) I manually turned the main spindle shaft clockwise and it is smooth.
However, counter clockwise it binds. I know that this is a forbidden movement when the drive belt is in place and would cause binding. But what does counter clockwise binding indicate with drive belt disengaged ?
I can't seem to find a forum answer.
Hope its not the bearings!

Thanks to forum members for taking time to share.
I hope I am in the correct thread!

how hard should it be to turn the thickness planer adjustment

Post by onevw »

I got this thickness planer with the cast alum round handle used to adjust the plate. It is hard to turn, I lubed the lead screws with bo-shield a light lubricant usually used for Alum. But is still very hard the turn handle. Not sure how hard this should be. And help will be appreciated.
Thanks RICK

Why are a number of the links not able to be shown .............. something about "Religion" problem and showing the information is halted ???

This has to be an incorrect situation ............. is it because some of the titles say "Reborn .........."

How crazy is this ???

I suspect that it has to do more with a recent change change in the forum software. From "vbulletin" to "phpBB".
SS 500(09/1980), DC3300, jointer, bandsaw, belt sander, Strip Sander, drum sanders,molder, dado, biscuit joiner, universal lathe tool rest, Oneway talon chuck, router bits & chucks and a De Walt 735 planer,a #5,#6, block planes. ALL in a 100 square foot shop.
