This one was found - literally - out in the woods, on it's back, at an estate auction on a rainy Saturday in May. The house had been sold and the new owners wanted everything out, most items were neatly lined up along the driveway, but some (like this strip sander and quite a few other things), were just tossed into the weeds along the edge of the woods out back! It was originally in a Westinghouse facility where the previous owner had worked - hence all the added sheet metal for dust collection between the table legs, and that "wonderful" shade of green overpaint. Oh, and check out the bright yellow 'UNSAFE' tag in Photo 4 . . . "UNSAFE" at any speed(?), perhaps Ralph Nader once used it (LOL)
