Purchased on C/L in Sacramento CA in 2007. Seller told me he'd purchased it at an estate sale two weekends previous (to flip it). He said the estate told him it had belonged to a Sacramento HS shop teacher who'd purchased it upon his retirement and whom had passed away in 1985, and that had been stored since then. (Runout was minimal, and bearings appeared to have been replaced.) It included the shorter fence rails (since donated), but no original fence (I had an Incra and a Unifence at the time). Machine was wired for - and tested running at - 115V at the time of purchase. (I recently rewired it to 230V.) The motor and switch had been replaced by the previous owner with a 1½ HP Delta No. 83-621 of 1985 vintage (there are subtle indications it was originally equipped with a 3 phase motor and switch, and that the previous owner never quite finished his project before he passed). Machine moved with us when we relocated to Spokane WA in Nov 2011. (I had never got around to doing anything with it in CA.) After the move to the new house in Spokane, I cleaned it up thoroughly (the condition when acquired wasn't that bad: some rubbing compound and wax for the finish, light sandpaper and steel wool for the surface rust on the table tops shiny-ed it up right nicely) and did some minor renovation (replacing some small parts that had disappeared over the years). Per the pix, it currently has a Shop Fox Classic fence (the short one, due to space considerations) which was a recent C/L acquisition.
