Picked up for $75 from a local ad. Stripped to bare metal and painted. Crowned the drive-drum. Flattened the platen. Patched holes in the idler-drum guard and side guard. Repaired damaged table.

Still missing some of the knobs and the deflector plate guard. If ya have one that you want to get rid of please let me know.
