Here are some pics of the saw after days of hand wire brushing, power wire brushing, hand and power sanding, scotch bright cleaning and degreasing. With a shot of the base for a reminder of how bad it was. I have not gotten up the gusto to start working on the base yet. So far I have determined that the switch will need to be replaced and repositioned, the motor and arbor bearings amazingly seem in good shape no strange sounds or wobbles. The hand-wheel is just in bad shape this is how it looks after 3 days in the anti rust liquid. I’ll be spending some time with it today
