Thanks Oluf! Mine was actually in pretty rough shape when I got it.. and while it did run, it had been badly neglected and the drive rollers had no rubber left on them at all..

It’s in a zillion pieces now, but I still haven’t figured out how to separate the head, posts and base.. I’ve been soaking them down with PB blaster and WD40 for the last few weeks but they still will not budge (and yes, I did take out the spring pins!). These are the last few pieces I need to get apart so I can begin media blasting and painting. I’m usually pretty good at figuring out how things come apart, but this one has me about stumped.
