Comments:
Craigslist find, paid $20.00. Has an old GE motor, broken motor pulley, extremely dirty and greasy. The name badge is worn, except for the raised letters. Stripped down, cleaned, painted, rebuilt the motor, replaced a few bolts and put it to work. I have a feed stop on the way that I found on eBay. I put a 3 tier motor pulley on in lieu of a 4 tier, it's what I had on hand. I generally use one speed anyway. Intended to sale, but fell in love with it and will keep it and pass it down. I always say if you have to replace a part from a vintage machine it's because it's missing, not broken.
