Topic tags/keywords: tools machines planerjointer scm 2000d combined2000d

That was me with my dad at his workshop, 42 years ago. On the left resided the SCM l’invincible 2000d (made in the early 1970s). My cousin bought it after a few years when my dad decided to close down his workshop. Last June dad passed away.. and I decided to buy his machine back. And I did buy it, but unfortunately, it was in a bad shape; I had to rewind the saw/planer 5.5 hp motor, replaced all cables and switches, repaired cutter shaft and replaced its bearings. The planer feed mechanism was messed up as well.

Now I’m testing the planer and if all OK I’ll install the saw unit and table back. Actually, there’s still a little noise coming from what I suppose is the gearbox of the feed mechanism.

I’ve tried hard to find the user manual, drawings and/or spare part lists on the Internet but without success.

I’d highly appreciate if anyone can help with the manuals or can share photos of their combined 2000d machine.

It’s the box behind the large wheel.
I’m hesitant to start dismantling the whole mechanism to reveal what’s inside the box that’s making the noise before knowing what’s in there.

You could inquire on owwm.org.

I have seen those machines for sale in the United States so seeing as most of the participants in that forum are American and Canadian you might run into somebody who has worked on one.

Thanks to Kenny, I found a manual for my 60’s Delta Rockwell lather at ozark maunais, they don’t have SCM, but maybe another search term?
It sounds like it isn’t American made, so this might be a big dead end.

Thank you Jimarco. The concept 2000d is a completely different machine. I tried to look for the l’invincible 2000d but unfortunately it’s not there.

I assume it is a dead end. Even the SCM agent here doesn’t have the spare parts list for this machine.

Although SCM is an Italian company, this particular l’invincible 2000d was made in Germany. I assume it was made by a German company that was acquired by SCM.

They might help you; especially if you explain that it is in memory of your father.

Update

Planer:
I removed and opened the feed gearbox. The noise was because of worn out teflon gear and low oil level. For now, I cleaned the gearbox of the teflon/oil sludge and put new oil hoping the thick gearbox oil would help reduce the wear and noise. Actually, now it’s working smoothly with very negligible noise.

Adjusted the fence and it’s now perfectly square at all positions. The jointer’s infeed and outfeed tables need readjustment to bring them parallel. I haven’t figured out the adjustment mechanism yet though. Something to do next week.

Saw:
The saw unit and table are all in place with a new insert plate. All working fine as well. I’ve leveled the slide table but kept it locked in position as the stopper/limiter is missing. Will install one next week.

Spindle moulder:
The lowering/raising mechanism worm gear was missing its locking bolt and when running it caused abnormal vibration. Found out that the sleeve on the cutter block was not the right size causing imbalance when rotating. Without the cutter block it runs smoothly. cutter I’ve installed a new locking bolt and will get the right sleeve size.

Generally speaking, I’m very happy with the machine operation now. Also, the rest of issues are minor and be rectified.

Will post more photos. Not sure if we can post videos here! Maybe a link to a YouTube clip.
