Pulley lamp from an old treadle sewing machine. First, I start by taking apart an old treadle base. Usually, these bolts are pretty easy to get apart. Sometimes they're stuck. I decided to use this treadle sewing machine base because both of the side panels had brakes in various locations and I didn't feel comfortable using them for a table or anything else that would support the weight. So I'm going to use the side panels, for maybe some sort of wall decoration and I'm gonna use the middle portion here for a lamp.
Usually, when I take these apart, I try to save as many of the pieces as I can, because you never know when you're gonna use the parts for another project the screw in this pulley was very stuck. I tried firm, even pressure with a screwdriver, but it eventually just sheared the screw. Maybe I tried that didn't work. Finally, I decided, maybe some impact would work and it did that might have been in there for a hundred years. Who knows now? I have to install this pulley in a location that was never intended for, and I decided to use this bolt.
It's a bolt from another sewing machine that I had taken apart before it's a little too long, so kind of town. I found a bushing in my spare parts. I need to make that opening a little bit bigger almost fits, so I just had to drill it out a little bit. It's perfect. Now I want to cut away the cast iron that I don't want just using a silver sharpie marker for that I was gonna cut off the extra there, but it seems like I need to put it in a vise. These are awesome, flap discs, it's a Diablo, disc, I'll, put a link in the description.
The flap goes all the way around up to the top of the disc. Not very many of them are like that. It allowed me to contour that shape all the way through and make it look like. It was always that way, just lining it up visually and doing a rough idea of how long I want to cut it same thing here. I'm just lining up the cast iron, where I think it looks good I'm making marks where the holes are, I'm making sure that they're the same distance off the sides and then I'm marking the middle one.
Now, I'm just checking to see what size drill to use for that bolt using a countersink to create a bevel to match the bolts that came out of the sewing machine. You see him here, I'm testing to see if it's proud of the cast iron and it was so it'll - accept a bolt or nut rather, I'm just checking to see if the line coming through the back will go up and over the wheel looks good little distress, I'm staining the end of this piece of wood, because the rest is already dark from age, and this is the closest thing.
I had used a little bit of sharpie marker to get into the deep crevices and than go back over it with a stain again. Just a little bit of spray paint hide the spots that I was grinding, I'm gonna let that dry. While I work on the wood here, this is a recess for the court. It's gonna come through the back and hang down and I'm stopping right where that pencil line is on that fence. I don't know if you saw it my hand just covered it. Next, I'm gonna fasten this down to the bench, and I'm going to use this bit to create some keyhole slots that screw I used to fasten to the bench is in line with the cast iron, so you'll never see where it exited the face of the Woods, I'm just testing to see if the screw works in it.
