Here is a picture of my antique Barber Colman #12 hobber after we gave it a paint job. We also fixed a few loose keyways in the gear train and now the flywheel has much less backlash. I haven't cut another gear yet to see how it is going to cut now.
Does anybody have any idea how old this machine is? It has a 5 hp motor that drives with a flat belt. It could possibly have originally run off of a line shaft but the casting where the motor mounts looks factory so I a believe that it always had a motor.
