I just picked this 1950's era Craftsman up last week from a local carpenter. It's in pretty good shape, been painted once a long time ago but it was a good job. It needs to be taken apart for a good cleaning and lubrication, and new power cord and belt. I'm trying to decide whether to re-paint it or not. No rust to speak of, which is great. If I do I'll post some pictures but it won't be for a while as I'm up to my ears in other things.
