« Part 1: Beaver 6200 9" Table Saw - The Find Part 2 of Table Saws series Part 3: Beaver 6200 9" Table Saw - Restoration 2 »

Took the whole saw apart and started cleaning up the guts this evening, I was worried from first appearance that the trunnions where totally covered in rust.

I picked up a wire wheel for my drill and went to town on it and discovered that not only was it not rust but the cast iron is in PERFECT condition, the original coating does not have a scratch on it. Or the cast iron is naturally shiny…

Here is the result:

That is one clean machine. Great find.

If you plan to replace the bearings (motor and machine) I highly recommend Accurate Bearings. They go out of their way to help folks doing small restoration projects Well worth the time to call. The link below will take you to a writeup about Accurate and how to order bearings.
