Comments:
Got this in a yard sale 14 yrs ago for $10. Fortunately I got the manual from Sears a month later for $10. The shelf boards were made out of MDF and were damaged by exposures to wet weather. One board was good enough to make plywood copies. Four days ago, I decided to completely go over it. Many different 1/4-20 bolts and nuts were used, so I replaced all of them with a same type set. I cleaned off the old gunks on the shaft and the yoke assembly, so they now move freely. Had to make two shelf brackets to replace the two missing original ones. The only things really missing are the shaft lock brackets and the extra stylus. I'm planning to make those replacements, also.
I really like to find someone to buy this. Not as a museum piece, but as a tool. And I'm not looking to make money on this one, but to preserve history of the old days when people knew how to learn to use machines and accessories. So, if anyone is interested, email me at 'steverino372000@yahoo.com'. Thank you.

Updated 3/7/06. I sold the recreator to a woodcarver. He was very pleased with the fine condition. Update 4/28/06. If you need to know any infos or get a copy of the manual, get hold of Mike Williams at: Dragonshadow2334@aol.com.

Comments: As you see, all of these were not as same as what was on the part list in the manual part list. So I replaced all with the same type bolts and nuts.
