Rivett 918 Brake Removal and All Speed Variable Pulley Issue

May 10, 2017 § Leave a comment

Removed non functioning Cutler Hammer Type S size 4 from the Rivett 918.  Also noticed that the Variable Speed Drive has a broken “foot” and the bottom left Pulley is wonky.  Can feel the vibration so I will investigate solutions.

Cleaning up and adjusting coming along pretty well.  Arbor removal was stubborn but done.  Cut some tubing on one of them just cuz… 

Rewired all done and motors good.  Rewired one of the coolant pumps…worked good until I reassembled…now showing some sparks.  On the list but don’t plan to use them anyway.  

More soon

Diamond M22 Horizontal Milling Machines

Two Diamond M22 Horizontal Mills.  Picked up this morning and got them both into the shop.  Trip was thankfully uneventful!  One is more complete than the other…missing overarm bracket and one crank.  Saved from county school system many years ago…very little wear and should clean up nice.

1000lb each

Made in LA..neat to find them on East coast.
