Comments:
Found this gem in a dumpster and did a full restoration on it. I removed every piece, screw, bolt etc. It took me about three weeks on and off, by far the hardest part was removing the 4 layers of paint and 70 years of grease, the best part was tearing the motor apart and putting it back together(3 times before I got it right).This was my first tool restoration so it was a great learning experience and this website became my new best friend thank you all who uploaded pics and docs it has been an amazing resource, not sure of its past but it was definitely used and abused but that just goes to show how well these were made, let me know what you think.

P.s. I believe I now have a new syndrome called VMAS (vintage machinery addiction syndrome)
