The headstock had babbit bearings.You could see the oil cup on top of the headstock casting. 

I'm not sure what my bearings are made of, but they're the unsplit type, pressed directly into the bored out headstock, with those little, spring loaded oil cups on top.

When I first found it, it was real stiff, but after a good cleaning and oiling, it spins like flywheel with the big, cast iron 8" pulley.  Wink



I love that song in the video, too. Anyone know what that is?

my wife has a app on her phone that if you hold the phone next to the music it will tell you the name of it. I just sent her a e-mail to see if she can get it for me.

Well, it's not really a song

Dvorak's Violin Concerto, 3rd Movement

Good catch Ron. I used my wife's Droid & it said it couldn't find it.

When you start a project you have "the plan", after your first catch you have "the intent".

Was just given a Rockwell table saw, it took two of us just to carry the table top to the basement. It must go 150-200 lbs. haven't moved it sence taking it down, but would guess the whole thing is 4-500 lbs.
