Racine power hacksaw

Post by Jeff in Pa »

A couple weeks ago I purchased an old Racine power hacksaw off Craigslist. I also located a older 1-1/2 hp Wagner motor too. I made a different plate to mount the motor and a longer jackshaft since I had to put both pulleys on one side of the shaft. Here's a slideshow of how I got it and the modifications I made.

It has patent dates of 1908, 1914 and 1918 on the access cover and was originally powered by an overhead flat belt. 8-)

I got everything together and here's a video of it's second cut ( while I owned it )
