I found this sander in a machine shop for $50. When I went back to pick it up, the broken parts of the table tilting mechanism that I had found earlier, where gone. I called Hammond ,now called Kalamazoo, they have no record of this model. I dissembled it, blasted and painted it, and replaced all the bearings. I rebuilt the belt driven water pump as it is a wet dry model. It's a very heavy sander as the base is solid cast iron.
