This is a Craigslist find that I picked up a while ago. It was made in mid-late 1970’s I believe. I had to do just a little cleaning up on it but it ran fine, but it has a lot of vibration. It’s heavy, cast iron everything above the stand, but it does vibrate a lot. The bearings seem smooth enough, I wonder if I just need to replace the belt. Oh well, I’ve been using it on a project I’m doing for my daughter for the last few weeks and it works fine. For as old as it is, it’s in great shape, and I’ve not had any problems with it beyond the vibration thing. The belt tracks great and is easy to adjust. The best part is that it was made in the good ‘ole U S of A. Woot!
