 Nice , I see it's running what looks to be Simonds B-7 5/16 Long bits? I actually make the dies that forge those bits LOL .

 

 

close, they are B X 8 X 1/4" 

 

Wonderful that you are getting to use it.
From someone who has some hearing loss, consider some ear muffs and glasses.

 

 

always wear glasses anyway, and yes i have ear plugs in 

 

 

NOW its on to sawdust removal!!!

Can't be , only bit that skinny is a different style, After looking at it and seeing the video , it looks more like the ( B 8/9 9/32 REG) Hugely popular bit !!
Do you swedge them or file them to sharpen ? :smilewink:

Nice videos. It's interesting that it drops the cut offs on the shafts. Should there be some decking there?

its definitely a B X 8 and the calipers say .250 on most of the teeth width. could be because of how old the bits are.

 

i file to sharpen for now until i get more "toys" for the mill like a jockey grinder

I'msure they are worn after all the rust.
Shine that bad boy up and keep it oiled once shiney, nothing robs hp like rust and pitch.
