Comments:
This one I bought in May (2013) as parts to complete my other CB&F No.61. I was finally able to collect it in September. I had to disassemble it and bring it back by bus as I think the airline would have spat the dummy. It’s complete except for the table. However the main casting is broken. There’s some paint under the grunge on the spindle gear that (hopefully) is the original colour – a dark grey.

Run of feed = 3"; dia. of spindle = 7/8"; crank cog has 46 teeth; spindle cog has 30 teeth; flywheel shaft cog has 22 teeth.

Update (10th May, 2015): The flywheel; auto-feed lever & pawl; carnk arm; and possibly a few other bits and pieces are now fitted to my other Canadian Blower & Forge No.61.

Comments: The crank gear, wearing what I hope is the original factory colour. On the right, a daub of paint which is a first attempt to colour-match the paint. Less obvious, on the left, is a second attempt - Resene Paints Limited Ebony Clay (N34-006-264).
