Came from a school covered with rust where it had been stored in a room with condensing pipes dripping water all over the bed. Machine came with a 1/2 HP single phase motor, but I put on a one HP motor. Original switch was dissassembled and contact points cleaned. New bearings and knives. Machine had sagging beds until the bed ways got cleaned. When assembled again, things were as perfect as they can be. Because of time constraints, I had to use the color green that was purchased for me by SWBO. Drive pulley was balanced and this made all the difference in how smoothly and quietly this machine ran
Before restoration. Switch was knocked out and repaired by shop teacher
Parts laid out and paint drying
Restored. Very green, and very restored.
