This poor machine reminded me of an old, painted-shut window when I got it. Blue and orange paint brushed liberally over everything including clumps of shavings. I stripped it down, repainted it, and replaced the bearings, belt, and knives. It came with a 1hp/3ph Baldor I'm running with a VFD. The serial number is stamped only on the badge, not the table, and under "Bros." there is a stamped triangle and 119. Simple design that works great!
