Startrite Saw Drive Installed

So I got into the shop for a couple of hrs this morning. Cleaned up the saw worm drive, drive wheel and hardware. Drained and flushed the gear box, refilled with extreme pressure gear oil, painted and set aside to dry.

Dry enough to handle this evening. Installed the drive and drive wheel on the saw.

Did not tighten anything down yet, waiting till the tension assembly and idler wheel are installed. I can then adjust for tracking and tighten everything down. Lots of built in adjustment, each wheel can be adjusted at four points to align the wheels accurately.

Hopefully do that tomorrow.
