I’m a somewhat novice lumberjock, but am interested in learning. I have responsibility over a set of vintage (50s/60s) powertools that have been sitting idle in a backyard shop for about 20 years. They’ve been kept dry, though in hot temperatures, and I’ve noticed dry rot in some plastic and rubber in the shop.
I’d like to get them back in running shape, and hope to get advice from you guys on whether it’s workable, and how! There are some small hand tools (old cast aluminum sanders, drills, etc.) as well as a table saw, RAS, a Shopsmith drillpress/lathe, stand-up planer, stand-up grinder, a jigsaw and a bandsaw.
Patient #1 Craftsman dual-motion sander (model 315.22401)
Any help on how to proceed with the repair would be appreciated.
