THIS MACHINE IS NOT FOR SALE, DON'T ASK, AND NO I DO NOT WANT TO TRADE YOUR ITEM "X" FOR IT. THIS IS NOT A SALES FORUM AND I DO NOT HAVE MACHINERY FOR SALE HERE.

I purch'd this fm another OWWMember (thank you John!) and rec'd it from him at the recent CAMA-OWWM gettogether in Kent, CT in the beginning of May '12. I don't know any real history on it except that he had gotten it from a woodworking firm that went out of business, somewhere in NJ. Everything is pretty well rusted, except for the tension mech. for the belt and the horizontal/vertical positioning. Getting the dc chute, pedestal tray, and the broken motor mounting plate off turned into a two day affair, of gentle coaxing, PBlaster soakings, gravity and patience. I believe that the serial # is correct, and from where I got it? Off of the dc chute of all things. I am working with another member on getting this back up to speed and some parts recast, thanks to James for your help.
