Howdy, I was able to drag back my G-pa’s old Craftsman table a couple weeks ago. I was able to find the manual on OWWM.com and am guest-imating it to be around 1954. It is almost complete has the fence(removed for transporting), mitre gauge, and motor. I did a little test patch on the rust, does any one have any suggestions on restoring it? I was planning on taking the front plate off, sanding it all down and painting it. Also I was going to make some extension wings, couldn’t find the original one. It has the original motor, what things should I look for in that? Dad said it was rebuilt a couple years ago, I’m guessing new ball barrings? I greased up the underside and the blade moves smoothly up & down & all around. Going to have to make some blade inserts, can you use 1/4” hardboard or birch ply?
You can see a part of the ‘51 Walker-Turner drill press in the background.
Any help would be great.
