Found this on CL. The young man who owned it (active duty Air Force) said he got it from his dad who got it from a garage. It was a little dirty and rusty when I got it, In fact the head would not move at all, as the radial part was completely frozen. A little PB Blaster and some persuation, and it was free. Spent a day cleaning and polishing and this is what it turned into. I didn't paint it, just cleaned and hit it with some clear high gloss poly. I had been looking for a radial arm for a while, this one fits the bill.
