Just received a Sweetheart era #246 Miter Box. It is in decent working order but really needs a good cleaning to get everything moving like it should again. My original plan was to clean and be done with it but… like usual I can’t just leave well enough alone.
Here is the state it arrived in..
Complete with the trip mechanism!
Saw is in great shape with no obvious signs of pitting.. only the tote needs help.
It also arrived with one of the 2 stop rods and both hold down clamps for the holding bars..
The plan is to bring it back to “near new” condition as best as possible and put it to work. This will include some fabricating of the missing hard to find parts but that will all get covered later.
Up next is tear down and get the parts into some evaporust and get this party started.
Thanks for reading and Stay Tuned!
