by “hand-held” power tools, i mean drills, sanders, skil-saws, and the like.

i have a friend with a black and decker heavy-duty finishing sander, us patent no. 23629?8 [i think the ”?” is an “8”] to get this sander working again, the sander needs replacement of the elongated rubber washers on the bolts that comprise the osculation mechanism. (i’ll bet that “elongated rubber washers” have a precise name.)

Robert Mcshane, popular mechanics portable electric tools and how to use them, 1952, page 46, shows an osculating sander that is pretty close, but offers no details

2d question: in vermont is located a reliable source for vintage delta stationary tools. i have lost the email for that outlet, and would very appreciate the email address for that too

may be a long shot, but any info is appreciated

yes, yes, “plaza” is the name i am looking for replacement parts for vintage stationary tools

(it’s embarrassing about the misspelling of oscillate, although haven’t encountered the “kiss” meaning before.:—interesting)

folks, this is one source—via owwm.org —forparts for vintage hand held power tools

Charles h. Day is a company in Portland, OR that works on hand held power tools. Here is the phone number, 503 232-1659. I think they are listed on the internet at chasdayco.com

I assume they have a stock of old parts or sources for them.
