The machine was in excellent condition when I purchased it.
Moderate cleaning and a little tuning up was all that was required.
The motor is a GE 3450 RPM 220 v. 1 h.P. 3 phase # 9-891.
In the background is my Northfield 5 H.P. An old timer had it in his garage on the north side of Chicago and was purchased in 1988 for $450.00. It did not have a motor but acquiring a new one was no problem from Mills Electric in Hammond, IN. The machine is completely rebuilt.
The serial number is 64765-B and Northfield told me it was manufactured in 1964.
The original fence was missing so I built my own.
