Welcome to my Website

Welcome to my website where I share information about various machines I’ve restored, and hopefully it may help someone else who’s doing the same.

Also I have a few woodworking machines, power tools and accessories for sale.

I’m based in East Kent for collection, but some items can be posted.

Portamate PM-P254 Router Motor

Portamate PM-P254 Router Motor

This router has only had very light use and is in as-new condition.

The Portamate PM-P254 Router has a powerful 3 ¼ HP motor, variable speeds from 10,000 to 22,000 RPM and is perfect for the router table.

The Portamate is an excellent router motor, except for the bearings, which have been replaced with top quality SKF Shielded Deep Groove Ball Bearings. Now it runs extremely smoothly, is quieter and will give many years service.

Price £145

The tables have been cleaned and de-rusted and although they are nice and flat they are stained pretty bad and not finished as well as I would have liked.

Wadkin 12AGS tables cleaned

Front rail and fence refitted and the machine is pretty well complete, apart from a few small minor details such as the swivel handles to fit, and once I’ve checked fence alignment then it will be ready to use.

I’m not fitting the on/off switch to the machine but instead I’m fixing it on the adjacent wall as it’s much easier to access.
