Found this old cast iron piece that is labeled as a motor adjuster. But I dont know if that is what it is for sure or not. Has anyone else ever seen one?

We have those types on our big mixers here at work, although newer and just big jack scerws used for adjustments. Ours are used to tighten the 4" wide cog belts between the motors and mixers.

That's obviously off somthing much smaller, but probably same principle

o ok. That makes sense. I was thinking it would be neat to mount a small briggs on it and use it to engage a corn grinder or water pump or something

That might work like that since that one is spring loaded. Ours at work are all fixed and mainly for tightening belt in stationary position, only used when changing belts.

What he said. We have them at work to tighten belts on blowers. the motor mounts on them.

I ended up purchasing it. When I got it home and got it all cleaned and freed up, I mounted a briggs 5s motor on it. It turned out looking pretty good. I'll post some pictures later if I get a chance

If you don't find a use for it, you could mount a clock on it.

Seriously.

I like that idea. Take the flywheel off the 5s and put the shroud with the clock on it.

I saw one like that on a small metal lathe. It had a Reeves(spring loaded) split pulley on the electric motor. By cranking it, pulling the motor against the pulley, it changed the speed of the lathe.

Y'all might be on to something there lol. I've already got 7 shroud clocks to build for some guys who ordered them from me
