I found this machine on Craigslist for $25. It was missing a handle for the fence and was in pretty rough shape. This was my first restoration. I completely stripped it down to bare metal, polished all of the bolts, moving pieces, sprayed with dry rust protectant coating and repainted with a coat of Rustoleum Professional clean metal primer and two coats of Rustoleum Professional Smoke Gray. Still working on the stand. I found a correct size Craftsman motor from the same era that I also restored with similar paints scheme. Still working on the stand, needs to have the blades set before use, but almost there!
