This machine was in the basement for a very long time. The table was frozen in both directions and the belts were so old if you bent them they would crack. I spent eight hours cleaning and lubricating it to make it slide on its ways. It came with a Walker DC magnetic chuck but it is only getting half the voltage to the chuck. I spent several hours on the phone with a great man, John Knox, talking about leather belts which drive both the automatic table and the stone. John is a real pleasure to talk to and is very knowledgeable concerning machines. If anyone knows what the small dial next to the big hand wheel does please educate me. I am on the hunt for a manual...........
