Again, *b*y provides another opportunity to feed the OWWM monster. This machine was in Paris, TX - a mere 315 mile drive. This time, I took my own truck and picked it up the weekend I bought it. Nearly all original, I am only missing the rear panel and the original switch. The previous owner replaced the Cutler-Hammer pushbutton with an exact match. The stand is pretty rusty, but the cast iron is in great shape. I plan a full refurb on this machine to bring it back to its original glory.

So many members write that they will post after-restoration pictures and they never seemed to get a round tuit. I stil have a few small touches thatI need to do to this PM60. I am making a new rear dust door and I still need to service the 2HP RI motor and electricals. This is my first machine restoration and I am very happy with the results.
