Marvel saw maintenance

#260103 by WillieOsgood » Sat Jun 01, 2019 2:29 am

Marvel series 8 Mark 1 vertical [url=band saw[/url]. Next to the hand wheel is the carriage feed worm gear. The operating manual says to check and fill the reservoir annually. It doesn't really give a good description of the desired oil level. Filling it completely as insinuated causes oil to run out around the shaft. Does anyone know how much oil they want? Since the worm is on top only the gear is in the bath unless the reservoir is actually "full". The exploded parts view shows no seal around the shaft.

Thanks,

As long as the gear is in the oil the gear should pick up enough oil to lubricate the worm. I don't think the shaft should leak very much at that point.

My first impression was that this is spam, albeit incompetent spam (he/she/it screwed up the url)

A quick Google search on the original post shows that it is directly cut and pasted from this 2010 post on the Practical Machinist forum.

So, yes it is spam.

That was a functioning link when I saw it early this morning. Being on my iPad, I couldn't see what it linked to, so I didn't report it. But Admin had apparently deleted the target by the time I was on a PC.
