Comments:
My grandfather bought this machine new when I was just a kid. This was the first real woodworking machine I was allowed by my father and grandfather to use. My dad bought a radial arm saw about the same time as this was purchased, and I was forbidden to use it until dad gave me instructions and lessons on it. (that didn't exactly happen that way - more on that later.) When grandfather passed away in 1987, dad brought this home and set it up in his shop. Two years later, he passed unexpectedly, and it has been ignored until now (May 2009). His tools and grandfather's tools now reside in my basement "workshop" - a mess at this point if ever I saw one. Working feverishly setting up shop and doing restoration and cleanup of the various old machines they both aquired over the years. Also working on my old tablesaw - about 25+years old. This is the first posting of several to come over the next few months. I also plan to submit some pdf files of some old instruction manuals I have aquired from some independent research before discovering this site. Enjoy fellas (and ladies if any of them looking too).

Comments: Front view of tailstock end. Surface rust and dirt soon to be removed. Paint is dirty, but will clean up well, I believe.

Comments: Front view of headstock. I plan to make stand similar to one in 1950's vintage Delta Homecraft catalog as can be found on this site. Stay tuned for resto pics.
