Went down and picked this up Sat. Only about an hours drive. Guy was real nice and even helped me load it. Said his dad left it to him and he has no use for it. It was given to his dad years ago.
After I got it home and looked at it more, there’s a label on there about an inspection from 1972 from the military. Works out cause he’s in a town with an AF base.
I was a little worried when the ad said 220/3 phase. Already had a motor picked out, but when I got home, discovered is a US made Dayton that’s 110/220 SINGLE phase. He said he was just going off what he read about it on the internet. Looking at the serial number, it was made in ‘65.
Going to take it apart, give it a good cleaning, then repaint it. Only thing I see missing is the infeed wheel. Looks like they rigged something up for that. And the outfeed adjust knob is missing. Other than that, I’ll proobably change the bearings on the cutterhead as well as the motor. They both turn, but grind a little in the process.
All of this for a cool $120 :)
Thanks to all who helped me make this tough decision ;)
