Worked on the machine this weekend with Dean. Did an oil change and changed out the fuel filter. I found out  the kubota dealer does not list this machine in their parts system but Napa does. My plan is to get the excavator to Sheepscot this week probably Wednesday or Thursday. Dean is tossing some extra bonus freight on the trailer that will make the shop crew happy when heavy item's need to be moved.

Probably easier to just pickup the welder with the tractor and have someone standby with a hose for when the grass goes up.

Isn't the old Brunswick Naval air station a public airport now? I would think Brunswick must have a car rental place in town somewhere.

According to the tag this is a 30 ton air press when supplied with a 100 psi. I believe this can be used for riveting or the previous owners were using the press to bend flat bar with a homemade die.





This is a rolling machine for light flat plate or bar stock. Needs a new base and some tlc. The wheel with the spokes is for spinning the rollers. There is and old car rim welded to the spokes. Probably had a flat belt running the machine at some point. There was a much bigger version of this mill in the shop still in use runnning off and overhead belt.

I going to give my best shot to describe what the tools do as I understand them. No need for electric for any of these tools just some compressed air. Corrections welcome.

This riveter is for reaching inside tanks or boilers. The tool hangs from an overhead hoist from the L shaped arm with the big chain on it. The wheel located in the middle allows the operator to spin the jaws around in a circle to position the riveting gun and buck on the work piece. The large air piston at the back clamps the tool on the rivet. In operation you would position the tool with the buck on one side of the work piece and the air hammer on the other side, place a rivet in the hole, clamp the tool down on the rivet and work piece, and the operate the air hammer to complete the rivet process.

Air hammer and buck


The round cylinder with the air line is the piston for clamping the tool down.


The big chain and bracket is for hanging the tool from an overhead hoist and the wheel rotates the tool around inside the ring the lifting arm is attached to.
