  • Wadkin PK

    I got a chance to look at the PK that I acquired last year. It seems to be in pretty good shape, fairley clean inside.
    So far the only issues are the sliding fence was dropped at some point in it's life and brazed back together, not well. Had a machinist mill the bottom
    flat again. about .070 off. The riving knife holder is messed up pretty good, I suppose it can be welded up and machined but concerned about it warping
    in relation to the mounting studs. Missing one trunnion bolt. Still need to check the motor bearings. A few photos for your viewing. Click image for larger version

    Nice dual voltage motor! A vfd in your future perhaps? I would love one for the ramp down but not sure it can be done with single voltage motors (400v+). Good luck with your endeavors I'm sure she'll be a thing of beauty in no time! What colours are you thinking?

      What diameter and length is the bolt?
