Comments:
This local auction find had its motor, switch and four knife cutterhead replaced by PO. The Dayton 1 HP replacement motor with a ring-oil system for sleeve-bearings is marked fifty five dollars and uses 3-IN-One's SAE 20 motor oil. The present three knife cutterhead assembly is Rockwell Catalog Number 37-810. The old Furnas customer supplied electricals are now Square D, HP rated. I replaced the original Delta V-Belt with Grainger's $7 V-Belt p.n. 4L590.
