Local CL find, on homemade stand - came with a few centers, faceplate, tools, etc. It still had the original Craftsman dark blue paint when I got it, and while I try to leave the original finish whenever possible, it was in pretty sad shape so I repainted it. Swapped out the motor for something better, added some ballast to the stand, replaced the oilite bushings, now it runs great.
