Agree, all you need to do is put a new 3-wire cord and connect the ground to the tool metal case. I took and soldered the hot leg directly to the togle switch and soldered the neutral wire to the existing wire, after trimming it up. I too like old power tools and have thought about using a 3 wire cord on at least one of them. I thought about it, in fact I did start polishing the trigger and area around it in case I wanted to polish more.

But when we fired up this tool, not knowing what to expect, what absolutely floored us was how perfectly smooth and straight the shaft still spins (check out our video below). When he's not remodeling part of his house or playing with the latest power tool, Clint enjoys life as a husband, father and avid reader. Guestnebulosity86692 years 10 months agoI just acquired a Mall model 143-T at an estate auction for $2.
This morning’s surfing, along with some memory tingling, produced some time travel I found interesting.
Along that same line, my own Goodell-Pratt #259, not yet 100 years old, saw lots of service before it came to me, and gets used a few minutes per week these days. That comment about 2 minutes a year fired off a bunch of neurons in my feeble old mind, and I ran downstairs to take a picture of my old reliable power drill. If you are a woodworker, and have not been asleep, you’ve heard that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) appears eager to mandate all table saws include flesh sensing technology? The whole story is many thousands of pages long, so I will offer only the barest of facts as I know them. Gass, being a patent attorney, surrounded his invention with patents (counts vary from 50 to 83!). Gass attempted to license his technology to most of the big name tool manufacturers, including One World Technologies (parent of Ryobi) in October 2000. Gass originally asked Ryobi for a 3% royalty which would increase to 8% if a majority of other manufacturers also used the technology. His employer provided him with either a DeWalt or a Ryobi table saw (benchtop model BTS 15), depending on the job of the day.
The CPSC isn’t too sure if they have correctly analyzed the data, but the have performed a miracle of turning 848 of 862 examined incidents into 79,000 (p16 of the briefing doc).
They were very careful to discover that 4 of the 862 examined incidents were work related and another 12 were thought to be work related, thereby leaving 848 as accomplished by we the uneducated, unwashed, stupid, amateur woodworkers of the world. They are careful to mention version 7 of the UL’s regulation 987 on table saws which requires a new riving knife and new modular blade guard design which is starting to appear in the market. Yet at the very same time, on the request for comments, they seek a long list of information, 25 categories of things they want to know more about. Did you know that every contractor who comes to sling paint in your home must have completed a full-day lead remediation course (typically a $300 cost) and also pass a licensing exam (another $100)? I believe that safety is an individual responsibility and that every individual is responsible for their own safety.
Were I to need a table saw now, I want the freedom to purchase the capacity and features I want, not those that some bureaucrat has decided for me.
Historical incident data are suspect due to calculations which extrapolate 846 into 78,000. You can let the Consumer Products Safety Commission know what you think of their proposed rule making? The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government, lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.
My woodworking colleague, Al Navas, has written from his personal point of view on his blog. Close up of the saw, I’m pretty sure this is the same saw that is in the background of this picture on the Woodworking Magazine Blog.
The plaque at the entrance of the Barn states that this workshop is where 56 of the the Boeing Model C’s were built. The Navy bought 51 of the Model C trainers, including the C-1F, and the Army bought two landplane versions with side-by-side seating, designated the EA. The final Model C was built for William Boeing and called the C-700 (the last Navy plane had been Navy serial number 699). Wooden props start out going through the standard power stock preparation steps on the power tools: joint a face, joint an edge, plane the faces parallel and to a uniform thickness, then rip to width. After cutting to shape on the band saw, the propeller is starting to take shape but the complex curves need to be done by hand and perfectly balanced. A series of cuts into the face of the propeller help the worker add the proper shape to the blades.  Here’s a propeller in progress. Every workshop needs sawhorses, but these were used as barrier, keeping me from getting close to the Model C airframe. These men didn’t build furniture, they built flying machines with simple power and hand tools. Modern woodworkers focus on furniture and design, these men focused on engineering and the newly discovered laws of flight.

The Museum is located just South of Seattle at the Boeing airfield and has a ton of military and commercial aircraft from the dawn of flight to today, including vehicles from the space program. At the dawn of aviation airplanes were made of wood, canvas, and wire by very skilled craftsman working to strict tolerances.
Natural light floods into the building through plenty of tall windows, and the wood inside imparts a glow that every woodworker would appreciate.
From right to left, you can see a bandsaw, jointer, the motor, a man working at a planer, and then a table saw in the corner. The tools are powered by the 6hp Fairbanks Morse engine to my left which turns the shaft on the ceiling, and the tools connect to the shaft with belts. The Fay Planer here has had some repairs, there’s a plywood piece to keep the belt from riding off a pulley, and a weld repairing the cutter head assembly.
The manufacturer of this table saw is not identified, and it’s clear that this saw was used for ripping and not cross-cuts. The last power tool in the display is this lathe, which is really two separate pieces (headstock and tailstock) on a very stout bench.
Keep checking back to see the hand tools that were used in the shop, as well as some of the parts the shop produced and how they produced them. This entry was posted in Tools and tagged antique power tools, boeing, boeing red barn, woodworking shop on October 30, 2010 by Matt Gradwohl.

The cast hole next to the loose wire nut, is where I drilled and tapped a place to attach the ground wire. This tool was actually purchased when my grandfather got out of the Army right after World War II ended.
On top of that, the body has held up all these years due to the alloys used (possibly Magnesium-based).
The justification for stepping down from higher grade professional tools to consumer grade was that the average homeowner used their drill less than 2 minutes a year. It has definitely see more than 2 minutes a year, probably a lot closer to 2 hours a year averaged over the time I’ve had it. I did fall to the siren songs of those cordless things and went through 3 generations of them.
First, my pockets aren’t deep enough to pay 23 times as much as I did for the old reliable drill which I still use today. They have both come together in an interesting way, and now the CPSC is riding in on a white horse to save us all from ourselves.
One imagines he expects a wealth of royalty payments to flow from them, or maybe even a wealth of infringement awards.
Some might question the legality of his immigration status, but I think that irrelevant to the case. Osorio slipped while making a rip cut without a fence, without a blade guard, without a splitter, and with the blade at an (unspecified) angle.
Actually, no government agency moves vigorously, but this time slightly faster than before.
That dictum was issued in 2007, and is not yet completely implemented in the industry (target 2014). Are they asking for this information because they really need it, to cover an exposed part of their research?
I’ve been very careful about not introducing politics in my blog, but to me this has a political aspect that I abhor.
Long ago, Congress started establishing federal agencies and imbuing them with regulatory power. Had one once, about 30 years ago, a Craftsman benchtop saw from the era when Crafstman was still making decent tools. Were I operating a facility where many people would use the saw, I would want them to all be as safety conscious as I am, and I would be dictatorial about it. This was one of the few benches we could get close to, so many things were behind barriers. All these tools were unfortunately fastened down, or that chisel would have walked out with me. Boeing and Eddie Hubbard flew the C-700 on the first international mail delivery from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, to Seattle, Wash., on March 3, 1919. There wasn’t detail in how the material was removed down to the cuts but I imagine a mallet and chisel was used, followed by some planing and scraping.
Primarily constructed of wood with some steel (no armor) and steel cable to tension the lightweight frame.
After this tour I’m more interested in machines made of wood, if you are aware of contemporary woodworkers building machines from wood (or mixed materials), please post a link in your comment. Although I’ve lived in Seattle my entire life, and I can count at least three relatives that have worked at Boeing, and I have at least three relatives that were aviators during World War II, I’ve never been. Airplanes old and new, large and small are stationed inside and outside for you to explore and some times touch. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the Museum of Flight feature the original Boeing workshop known as the Red Barn.
The building has been expertly restored and maintained, including a tool area that includes some of the original tools that were used by Boeing employees decades ago to build not only a company, but an industry.
The shop must still work at times (probably for demonstrations) because there is a red emergency stop button near the engine, and it’s a new install.
Notice that the wheels and backside of the blade are not enclosed, but it’s essentially the same saw we use today. The signs in front of the tools were a little inaccurate, but I they usually listed the tool manufacturer.

The hard part of putting a newer cord on some old drills is in where it goes into the handle.
He used it for his antenna installation business where it was employed heavily up until 1969. I found them mostly wimpy and while none of them actually failed mechanically, all 3 fell victim to design obsolescence of their batteries.
It even ended up ticking off the Power Tools Institute, and organization to which most of the big tool manufacturers belong. He couldn’t find employment in the computer field, his chosen field in which he had obtained training and education. What they really did by that statement was establish their own jurisdictional interest in the case. Yet, by neatly sidestepping the work related aspect, the CPSC doesn’t want to consider the effectiveness of the new UL measures, although they have information about the results of 987.
Yet, here was another case of semi-useful statistics being used to justify an immediate mandatory change. The CPSC isn’t telling is what toilets we can have, what light bulbs we can use, what fuel and engines diesel trucks and use, and on an on. The saw was very useful for a few projects, and I went to great lengths to learn how to use it safely. Osorio should have known how to safely accomplish the rip cut he needed to make, or, instead of using more force, he should have stopped to learn when the going got tough on the first attempt at that cut. Yet knowing that some won’t be as careful as I expect, and knowing that we have the highest density of lawyers in the world, I would probably purchase a SawStop saw. Why then should an unelected body, that is not accountable to the American public make such a mandate?
There were plenty of benches in the space with the original tops, but the bases were replicas.

I may build this box some day, but on a bigger scale and with some more purpose-built storage. The Model C-1F had a single main pontoon and small auxiliary floats under each wing and was powered by a Curtiss OX-5 engine.
The stock is then cut in the shape of a propeller, but it won’t provide much thrust until it is shaped. They helped build an industry and change the world, but I’m not sure they knew it at the time. Many planes actually hang from the ceiling, and today there was an active duty Navy patrol plane in the parking lot and the crew was giving tours. It’s well restored and although the entrance is adjoined to the main museum when you walk in the sweet smell of wood helps you transition back in time to 1909 when the workshop first opened. The tools are definitely big iron, and besides the lack of electric motors and safety guards they are the same ones you’d find in my shop.
I hope when this guy worked around all those tools, pulleys, and whizzing belts he didn’t wear clothes that were so loose fitting. In a search I found that Perine Machinery (makers of the jointer) was likely local and could have made the lathe and other tools. Reconditioned might Tools for sale one-time Woodworking Machines Woodworkers exchange Shopsmith for sale trade ads etc. Turning Sites & A clearinghouse for information on antique tool and woodworking motorcar patents. It had been regularly lubricated and could have used a good tear-down, but the fact that it was still going after 60+ years is a testimony to the work ethic and build quality of American tools (Mall Tool Company was out of Chicago). He hopes his efforts at PTR will provide builders and contractors with reliable and engaging tool reviews to help them make better tool purchasing decisions. By the time the batteries would no longer take a charge, replacements cost 3 times as much as the next great (consumer grade) cordless drill. The drill itself might not fail in a reasonable lifetime, but how long will replacement batteries be available? To fill the gap, he accepted a manual labor job with a flooring contractor and unfortunately suffered a serious injury on that job. His employment with a flooring contractor started in April 2004 and his injury occurred almost a year later. Osorio used was defective because Ryobi did not use flesh sensing safety technology (already proposed to Ryobi through a failed contract). The first part of one is nearly identical to the whole of the other: a Table Saw Blade Contact Injuries briefing package and an Advance notice of proposed rulemaking. They designed it with divided powers, with checks and balances, that keep each of the three major branches in balance.
Maybe it was to protect members of Congress from making hard choices that might cost them their jobs.
The children who are poisoned at so low a rate we can’t measure it, or legions of trainers and licensing bureaucrats? Were my needs for frequent and heavy use, I would probably buy a SawStop because I recognize that both over-familiarity (a variant of carelessness) and tiredness are hazards that lead to accidents. He has surrounded his invention with dozens of patents, obviously attempting to seek royalties, if not infringement judgments, from as much of the relevant industry as possible. The Red Barn is full of power tools, and this post continues the story describing the hand tools and some of the finished projects. Part of me wonders if these tools were really used in the barn, or if it’s just a random collection from a flea market. If you don’t balance the the prop correctly, it will pull itself apart and destroy the engine. They have a mockup of the Destiny module of the International Space Station, and are working on getting a Space Shuttle.
This is a 24 inch model so it has plenty of capacity, about twice the capacity of my lunchbox planer.

For the past 20 or so years it has seen only occasional use, mostly due to the advent of cordless technology and variable speed tools with integrated brakes.
The other interesting thing about this 1.5-amp drill was that it could run on both AC and DC current, making it extremely useful in industrial environments when access to DC generators was possible and tools could be run in that manner. I am about to disassemble, clean and lubricate it and reconnect the severed power cord to see if it will fire up. If you’re a pro and really do use these things an hour or more a day, or if you just want to have the same things that Mark and Tommy have, go ahead. No one should become so powerful that another cannot correct the imbalance, and none shall go beyond the power of the people.
Advisers say that the poisoning rate can not be reduced further and that the rulings serve only to burden producers with heavier costs, and in many cases products disappear because they can’t be made affordably. Once the nature of my projects changed and the saw sat idle, I sold it and haven’t wanted one since. It’s a top-notch museum that is affiliated with the Smithsonian, when you come to Seattle you definitely need to visit.
At the same time, Joel does put in a suggestion about buying a truly professional quality Festool instead.
I chose not to buy it.] Excerpts from the testimony, available at Wood Magazine (links at the end of this post), suggest very little instruction. It’s the freedom of choice that interests me, not the control of an unelected, unaccountable, bureaucrat. So serious that they abandoned the previous practice of phasing the standard in over time, letting suppliers replace inventory as the improved product became available. Those folks went out of business in the late 60s, or actually, were bought by another firm, and then bought again by Shopsmith, and eventually discontinued. If the Judiciary does things we don’t like, we can revise or replace the laws they interpreted differently than we like. They determine what needs to be done in our interest, sometimes ask us about it, and then go on and do as they please. It’s unclear whether he ever read the warning labels on the saws (which were in both English and Spanish). His technology is available in the open market, and is being accepted by those who value it, exactly as it should be.
It was noted that each had the blade tilted (we don’t know how much), but in opposite directions.
