Comments:
I bought this machine from OWWMer Bob Connley already restored. Since I've owned it I've swapped out the production table for a perfect, unmarked production table I got from another OWWMer John Snyder. I've also added the huge, 3 foot wide custom made cast iron table that's made to fit on the stock production table, it came from Tony Schmaling. The original 1720 RPM motor was changed out for an NOS Delta 3/4 HP 1140 RPM motor from Tim Kuist. This DP has parts obtained from OWWMers all over the country.
