Added New Free PDF Downloads of Machinery Catalogs to Inventory

Pages from Walker Turner Catalog 1942 Pages from Square D Wiring Diagrams 1977 Pages from South Bend Catalog 15-Y Pages from Powermatic Catalog 1991 Pages from Jet Tools Catalog 1982

We just added 19 new machinery catalogs and bulletins to our PDF Machinery Catalog Downloads section. These pdf tool catalogs added up to 712 scanned pages. We keep trying to add more to help people identify and learn more about their machines. Definitely bookmark us or check back at this blog. We always try to post every time we add a new batch of catalogs or new machine manuals to our inventory. FYI, we plan on adding a new batch of manuals this month as well.

Pages from Delta Homecraft Catalog 1957 Pages from Craftsman 1940 Pages from Buffalo RPMster Pages from Bordhead Garrett Catalog Pages from Atlas 1954 Woodworking Catalog

Some of the new free catalog pdf downloads include a complete series of Buffalo Forge Drill Press and Drilling Machine Bulletins, and we’ve created new selections for Craftsman, Powr-Kraft, and Yates-American.  We’ve added new catalogs to Delta-Rockwell, JET Tools, Powermatic, Atlas, and South Bend. We also found a Square D book of wiring diagrams from 1977 that we thought people might find useful for all those power switch boxes or starters that have been added to their machines over the years.

If you have any other request, please feel free to let us know. We’ll keep providing more as we find time in our shop.

A New to me 4′ x 8′ AXYZ CNC Router for my Birthday

This is what I got for my 65 birthday, today. What do you think?


This is an AXYZ model 4008 with an 4′ x 8′ table, and 7HP variable speed router spindle made by Perske in Germany. We plan to bypass the entire electronics, and use a board by CNC4PC, and set it up to run off Mach3, like the other CNC machines we’ve rebuilt. We’ll share more, once we start the rebuild process.
