Well I have been in and out of the forum, but mostly out, a lot of personal things have taken up our lives here for the summer and fall. I recently picked up an old Rockwell shaper, a 43-120. It has a 1hp motor, and it squealed like a stuck pig. So I anxiously disassembled the motor and the drive shaft to replace the bearings. I am happy to report that the whole process went smoothly and everything disassembled and reassembled very easily, and it now purrs like new and will soon be in service as I just ordered a set of cutters from toolstoday.com

Nice buy Jack. Looking forward to hearing how it works for you.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hey Jack hope things are perhaps slowing down some for you and yours. Perhaps we will see you a little more often now.
