I found a #74 miter box on craigslist and did a basic cleaning/restoration on it. I need a couple of minor parts if anyone has some spares. I need 1 elevator assembly, 2 depth gauges, 2 depth gauge washers, and 2 end brackets. I’ll be restoring the saw soon.

After:

Thanks in advance

It appears to have been dipped into the Fountain of Youth. Great job!

DS: looks great. What color paints did you use (I am starting on my 2nd MF box, the first did not need repainting). And just keep looking for those accessories, I have found a few so far at garage sales where they were selling one of these boxes. And some of the accessories were not with the box itself. If I had extra I would certainly pass them on.
