Comments:
My neighbor got this from where he worked and used it a few years. He got cancer and sold some of his tools asking me if I wanted it. He sold it to me around 1993 for $150.00. It is in good condition, I only replaced the motor capacitor in 2016. I cleaned up the rust and lacquered the bare metal parts to keep from rusting again. The pole is WD40'd for now. I also replaced the lock handle (CS30) which was aluminum and broken with a 'Uxcell 22mm Metric L Shaped Angled Open Hex 6 point Socket Wrench' with the straight socket cut off. The curved end even has a hole for a bolt if you want to bolt the handle in, but is very tight without it... I looked high and low for some kind of replacement handle, but couldn't find one.

After I WD40'd the head to remove the grime, I tried lacquer thinner and a toothbrush and cleaned it that way. What happened was that it thinned the paint and redistributed the paint to areas were it was missing; so I went with it. The paint then hardened back up and got a fairly clean piece of machinery. A stroke of luck! Not totally clean, but impressively clean compared to the original color, which was close to black (with grease). Still would like to fill the hole marks on the table, I love the hole saw mark though!
