Looking for Green Engraver, or parts and manuals, Model D2 or 106

Editor's Intro & Apology: --
Gentle readers, we hope you find this page interesting and useful. Please ask what you will and share what info you will! If you can offer a manual free to the readers, please attach it to e-mail to mooney@finishing.com
But we do not have even a tiny fraction of the horsepower & bandwidth that would be needed to try to be a free E-bay or Craigslist, and would drown under spam in a week. So apologies, but sorry we cannot post any offers to sell ( huh? why?).

Q. I just purchased a model D-2 Green engraving machine and need a manual and source for parts and cutters. Did you find a manual and could you sell me a copy if you have one?

Need manual for Green Engraver Model 106

Q. I recently purchased a Green Engraver, Model 106 from e-bay. I was curious if you ever received an owner's manual or could lead me in the right direction to get a hold of a manual? Thanks for your help.

RFQ: I'm looking for the drive band for a Green Engraver -mn 106. Is the drive band just a standard o-ring?

A. No the drive band is not an o-ring, it is a tiny belt that is no longer available from manufacturer but you might be able to get a vacuum belt that might fit. The one I use at work has a 6 inch belt on it.

Q. Here's another fine old machine that migrated to our shop minus key parts. Old machines often come with a collection of stray items and attempts to improvise ... this being another example.

Does anyone have the time to post a close up picture of the lower bearing housing cap for the cutter assembly of a Green Engraver 106? We can fabricate it, but if there are parts collectors out there, I would also like to see photos of what else might be missing.

I am taking this machine on before delving projects on a Lars Gorton Pantomill that came from the same estate sale. My work will be published in the next few years as shop manuals for advanced carvers. Some of my projects are also being prepared for bronze casting.

thumbs up signYou are all off the hook on this now... our local machinist wizard has cast his spell and is up to date fascinated with embellishing items for the pantograph. My first test was, "BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR". Thanks for posting all the helpful elves and wizards advice. John

A. I wrote a book, The Machinist's Bedside Reader #2, in which full working drawings and how-to-make notes will be found, for a machine very similar to a Green Engraver.

Reassembling a Green pantograph

Q. I have a Green pantograph model D-2; my problem is that I took the arms apart to clean, and lost the order of reference. Can anyone help me with the correct instructions on how to reassemble the ratio guide arms back correctly? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A. Hi - I saw your question on reassembly of a Green Engraver. I have a model 2 D that I just acquired with some other equipment. I do not know much about this equipment but I could take pictures of if that is any help.

A. Thanks for posting the pics, Anne -- people have been looking for them for a long time! If you are looking to sell this inherited item, try listing it on E-bay or Craigslist ... and if no luck, you can donate it at freecycle.org. But your pics will help people in any case!
