Hello, I came across an old powermatic 30, 3 phase sander/grinder with dust collection and a squared D foot pedal that I am wondering if it’s worth restoring? Everything works just fine, so it really just needs belts and paint. Does anyone know anything about this? What would something like this sell for?

I would think anything old and still running is worth restoring and keeping around for another few decades or so :)

Check over at and see some of their pics. Also,
