Its been a while since I come back to restoring Old Wood Working Machines, Actually I did a couple of Restoration back in 2007 and 2008 but never had the chance to post them here. Okay fast forward now, Just a little over 2 months ago now when I was browsing Craiglist for tools when this had caught and took me again to slippery elbow grease road to restoration hobby. I could't resist to have it. The machine was originally up in the high $600, and finally went down to $400 after a not so lucky waiting for weeks by the owner, Finally after 2 phone calls and couple of text I meet with the guy who was only 3 miles away from my new place. They were paid to him for some debt or I don't know I guess its not my business anymore that he ended up having also a Delta 10" Bandsaw and a Delta 1" belt sander for sale. He said it was from the original owner and never been messed up by him as he is from a different passion. We finally made a deal for $380 including bunch of old new in a box vintage blades including New Vintage Craftsman Dado blade. The machine looks to be in good shape and hardly ever used or little used as most paint of the original paint is intact and never been taken apart. Also it comes with $60 worth of extra accessories and offered free haul and delivery to my place with my help of course.
Machine unique feature are as follows it has a motor shaft/pulley cover on the saw side and the motor was mounted differently in the back with a shock spring load absorber that was bolted down(Damaged at one end). I have no idea if this feature is original or modified. The Table stand was enclosed and turn into a cabinet with wheel rollers with brakes. The motor looks sound and was wired for 220V.
After Eager trill to start dis-assembling it, I missed a frontal view shot. The whole machine has been taken down apart. cleaned, lubed, Jointer and Table were sandblasted and powder coated. I will post them later when I get it all done.
