I've been looking and waiting for this exact machine for a while now and it just popped up last week on Craig's List 180 miles away. Sooo, a few days later after clinching the "deal" I rented an SUV and off I went to get it. I was so NOT disappointed! It came with a new Leeson 1 1/2 HP 110 single phase motor. The bearings also seem good (I guess... ) and the top belt cap has no cut thru slots from a mistracked belt. The paint is also mostly original and a keeper. Pretty good, huh? I also just found the belt table and trunion and it's snail mailing it's way to me as I write this. When that comes in I will disassemble and clean & lube as necessary. If someone wants a deal on the Delta Backstop I'm going to replace it when the belt table comes in. I also want to thank all of the previous posters of these sanders for posting GREAT photos and stories. They taught me enough to make an informed decision to buy my own beauty. - Thanks!
