I have recently inherited an old sedgewick pt. I am wondering if anybody knows where I could find information on its maintenance. It seems to work well apart from the infeed "grabbing" roller which doesn't seem to be doing its job and the wood needs to be force fed, not a good idea I know. I would like some info regarding this point especially. Thought I would be very unmanly and try to find instructions before I take it apart and play with it! It seems very good quality and simply designed, a sedgewick advantage I believe, so hopefully I'll be up and running really soon. Surprisingly couldn't really find much on their website.

Yet again Sparky comes up with the solution to some one's problem. Just awesome dedication. Long may it continue.  Alan T.
P.S. Has anyone else noticed how quiet Dennis has been since as the turning comp date approaches?That's ominous for the rest of us I reckon. Cheers.

Why thank you Alan
I think Dennis is keeping quiet just in case someone asks him what he's made.........he wants it all to be a surprise

I dont know the Sedgwick machine, but these things are mechanically quite simple. If the roller is not turning it could be either a chain or cog. I am shure Sedgwick will be a help.

Thanks Marc, got in touch with sedgewick and they are sending me an instruction manual. It sounds like I have to adjust the springs to tension the "grabbing" roller, reasonably simple. Thanks once again. Jason.

I have the sedgewick pt singing like a bird!
After adjusting the fluted and smooth rollers down 2mm from the cutting circle as per instructions, the timber was still needing a "helping hand" to travel through the machine, my last option was to clean and wax the table. Wow what a difference! Sometimes the simple solutions are the best. Would never believe that removing the tables natural friction would make such a difference, I barely made it to the other end before my timber appeared! I'd recommend cleaning and polishing to all pt users. (just don't tell her in doors)  Thanks for the help Marc. Now where did I put that camera?
