A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

I don’t understand how that works. I will study it and report here.

I continue to remove parts from this paper shear. The large gear and the shaft it is attached to is simple to remove after the machine is turned upright. Before that however there is another assembly that I will remove. There is an interesting component in that assembly I will show after I take it out.

Before I learned the flywheel weights 500 lbs. my plan was to make a power hammer. Now I intend to make a wood splitter. There are other components in this machine that I think lend themselves to making a very kewl old fashioned style log splitter.

I removed what I would consider another interesting assembly from this paper shear. The assembly weighs 680 lbs. and consists of two shaft assemblies.

One shaft is 3” diameter and has two sector gears in the center and a crank arm on each end. It also has two pillow style plain bearings about 5” wide that it runs on.

The other shaft has two pinion gears with a cog wheel ratchet mechanism between them. On each end are what looks to be a spring loaded slip clutches.


I also picked up a few other goodies including a bucket full of Faultless casters, 40 lbs. of 10 and 6 ga. wire and a some 3/4” bolts.

Little do you realize. I no doubt would receive the Suck Master award every year if such an award was given.

This is a light to average haul from yesterday:

The machine components are from a surface grinding machine of sorts. The tall yellow devices is the wheel dresser, it has a lever operated quill and a micrometer feed. The grinder has a round magnetic chuck that I am thinking of getting.

The cutting tools in the can are all in good shape. The two vertical endmills are carbide. The plate grab still has sharp teeth. There are 12 sticks of 1”EMT in front.

Along with a few small parts from the paper shear I paid $42 for all.

Nice haul. I used a copy of that plate grabber for years at my old job. One time I think I tig welded some more grip on it, or ground some other teeth on it, but would love to find one for myself someday.
