Frame is nearly complete


We've added the feed tables and finished painting the frame.  We'll be making a guard for the gears and belts, which are too close to the operator for comfort.  Also will be relocating the electrical control box under the feed table.


Now comes the testing!  We've rotated the flywheel by hand and engaged the clutch regulator and brake.  Everything seems to work.  The old motor starts and runs like new, now that the brushes have been cleaned and the stator polished.  Once we install the leather belt, we'll see how well everything actually works in real time!
