Comments:
Rockwell sander was originally used in a high school shop, was taken out of service and changed hands twice without being used before I picked it up and restored it. Motor is a 1.5hp single phase TEFC 115/230 volt that I have wired for 230. Original furnas mag starter with new remote switch. All new bearings, paint, wiring, belt, etc. Still have a few odds and ends to do like a dust door for the cabinet, and a handle for the belt sander tilt table, but it's fully functional and works great.
