Joe K, I wondered how the iron step pulley was driven from overhead. Cutting a wooden step pulley to correspond with the iron one sounds like a great place to start practicing my lathe skills. Thank you from for explaining that.

It seems like some of this stuff may have been at an even earlier shop before this.
I’ve been working in old auto repair shops since the 1970s and I’ve never seen antique wooden shop furniture like this. The wooden standing service writer desk should be in a museum!

My lineshaft stuff is in at Fastenal! We’ll see if it’s another box of corn flakes or if it’s intact.

Congrats on the arrival of your purchase! Glad it arrived safe. I must say I had a healthy crop of jealousy when I saw the delivery truck... 😮
Nice ride! 👍🏼

Canedy-Otto bench drill press with slip pulley and clutch fork. I see a few of these “baby camel backs” around but none with the clutch fork.
The fact that it’s part of a system that was still working just a few months ago is amazing.
Hate EBay all you want but the selection is amazing.

More Dick’s Garage clean out stuff. This 1900s (?) shop counter was being used as a lube table.
It may be the PRIZE of the entire deal. I’ve only seen antique store counters like this in pictures. What do you think? Goes great with my early 1900s vibe.

I was on a tour through the Missouri Meerschaum smoking pipe factory (Washington, MO) in April of last year. Hoped to see old machines and related equipment, but everything has been modernized. Only remnant of the past was a very little bit of overhead line shaft in the gift shop area. I did take a couple of pictures of what they had.

So much I don’t know...all the lineshaft hangers I’ve seen have a reservoir somewhere in the bearing or hanger to hold oil. You gotta have a long-handled spout to fill or a ladder...the orientation of the hanger puzzles me because you know some of these were hung off the wall yet how did the reservoir point up to hold oil? The stresses on the hanger and bearings are different for wall-mount, too. Lots of stuff to learn...looks like desireable “dog leg” cast pulleys.
Very nice!
Thanks!
