no previous part Part 1 of Dunlap Sander Restore series Part 2: After fresh paint »

I was at a garage sale last week when I spotted this hiding in a corner: Brought it home for 10 bucks, that included the spare 1/3 HP motor the guy threw in.

I’ve managed to ID this using the Old Wood Working Machines website, its a Dunlap that was produced in the early 40’s. Everything workes, missing the little miter gauge.

I’ve gotten it tore down and in the electrolysis dunk tank getting the paint and grime and rust off it.

Original Motor, seized but I think I can fix it.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the 14” Delta Bandsaw with riser block, fence, light and roller stand. I guess I should take pictures of that too. I just find the old tool more facinating.

Have your say...
