Comments:
Machine was purchased in 2017 at a tool consignment store in Swansea, MA. It was missing the rear cover of the pot-belly stand and the dust chute. Replacements were fabricated from wood. It included the Delta motor (model 82-910). Restoration was completed in Feb. 2019. YouTube videos of the restoration can be seen here:
