Saying Hello
« on: March 24, 2021, 09:40:52 AM »

Just a simple "Hello"......just joined but been around forever. I'm a Watch and Clock Maker with many interests, one of which is Geology/Lapidary. I also restore old vintage machinery (from all trades) which right now I'm working on a Frantom 18" slab saw. I might post some progress pics once I figure out where to post it. Also need to ask a couple questions on one if there's anyone here who has one. Maybe message me? Anyway looking forward to hearing from anyone.

Hello from Napa !. Progress pics are always welcome and can benefit those that need machinery break down photos.

 Pics are easy to post if you pre-size them. I use "Pix-resizer"  https://pixresizer.en.softonic.com/

It's free software and easy to use. I usually go to 450 x 600 which posts well on this site.

I don't know if there is a post tutorial on this site but if you have trouble posting yell out and someone will help.

Cheers !

Appreciate the offer but I already know what to do since I'm not new to forums.....I'm just a "newbie" here. But I'm not afraid to ask if I have any problems...thanks

Thanks Stonemon......once I start the progress thread I might look you up........the saw I have is approx a 1950s model but the badge and model plates arent there but I have talked to Diamond Pacific (Highland Park wasn't alot of help) and got some questions answered. I usually do lots of research and pics before I do any disassembly and try to obtain manuels with Parts breakdown to see what was original and what was monkeyed with from a past owner. It will be slow going since I already have several projects in the works......this saw, a vintage 14" Delta wood and metal bandsaw with art deco base...ca 1950, Rockwell 12" Disc Sander ca 1962 and a Rock Island #574 Vice...ca 1940-1950s, I found in like new shape to upgrade/retire my other one in my shop.
