Picked this on the Vancouver Cragislist from an older fellow who had purchased the machine only a year ago. He had no history on it. He took out the knives and gibs, and stopped his restoration there. That makes me a bit nervous.

I will put it in the queue and get to cleaning it up eventually. It has some surface rust, but the paint seems solid in most places, though dirty and a bit oxidised especially on the back.

I like that it is complete, it has both the extension supports, the blade guard, and the fence. Plus all the knobs, etc. Has a more recent 1/2 HP motor with it that ran pretty smoothly when the vendor fired it up.

I especially like the super realistic beaver cast onto the face of the blade guard, it looks like it might frighten small children!

It is badged as Beaver/Collander, so it is pre-Rockwell.
