I really need a manual for this monster! I took over my dad’s workshop and moved most of the tools to my house. He bought this from Morehouse Suppliers in Columbus Ohio, I think it was industrial use and that was back in the day when you could buy the old stuff when the companies bought new stuff. So anyway it wasn’t bought retail. I think he got it in the mid 80s. I’ve been searching catalogs and this one is I think circa 1969, but the numbers don’t match up to that year from a reference on a vintage tool websites.
Anyway. This DP does work but it’s crabby, cranky and needs some attention. I want to restore it. I’ve searched all over for this model manual and can’t find one. It may have been modified throughout its life time but here’s the pictures…anyone who can help, please advise.
Issues that need immediate attention:
-The arm won’t lock on a horizontal plane. It moved and slips diagonally. I think it must be missing a clamp somewhere.
- belt needs to be replaced. What?
-the rust. Ugh.
