I bought a viceroy sharpedge at an auction sold without motor and pump got it for around $120.00 U S .
Guess what when I got it home and looked underneath with a torch I found to my astonishment the pump which is mechanical and motor which was almost new was completely intact.All that is missing is a receptacle tank possibly plastic to take the oil and accept the oil being returned .
To anyone who has never seen one of these they are about the size of a small refrigerator and have a sixteen inch wheel carborundum I expect which revolves horizontally and has a pump which drips oil onto the wheel as it turns, hence the pump being mechanical and it seems to work of the spinle of the motor on a cam.It has a side take off also with a tap for to feed oil onto the spindle which has a conical shaped carborundum wheel all encased in a metal floorstanding base unit with a fibreglass hood to protect it from dust etc. It has a large arm which completely traverses the whole of the disk and can be raised and lowered and moved across the disk and I wondered what that was for has anyone seen or used one, or could point me in the right direction with a brochure. It has a arrangement a fitting on the front for holding chisels etc and is a sophisticated means of holding and angling the tool in question.Perhaps it could be argued with the invention of the Tormek of which I already have two off it may be out of date any one with any knowledge of this machine please let me know I can email photos if anyone is interested as I woulkd like more info especially on the arm which has two grooves about two inches and about half an inch underneath I wonder what this is for Alistair
