Comments:
This motor was found in basement of a soon to be demolished house. Along with several other 40"s - 50's Craftsman machines and 2 other machines of different mfg, but similar vintage. I almost overlooked this as it was buried amongst other motors and a rather large amount of raccoon droppings. For the location that I found it in, it is in surprisingly good condition.

The gentlemans father that owned/lived in the house was a carpenter/tool horder. I pulled out buckets of hand tools.
