I bought this at the Ann Arbor ReUse Center, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, for $60, in December 2017. It was mounted on a wooden stand with an ancient motor. I didn't want or purchase those two items.

I photographed the machine then disassembled it, taken the parts to a metal cleaning company in Toledo, Ohio for derusting and paint stripping. I repainted it with Rust-Oleum "Hammered" Copper primer/paint and polished the machining surfaces.

I reassembled the machine using new off-the-shelf bolts and screws. I still need to get a few parts: new bearings, a new set of knives; blade locks, a fence lock stud, and a guard spring.

I'm planning on building a stand and using a recent manufacture 1/2 HP motor. It will be mainly be used for guitar furniture construction.
