Since there is all this talk about restoring old machines thought I would toss out some quick photos of the ones I have done. Will skip the ones to be done since they out number the completed ones.
DeWalt RAS, my first restoration
My Unisaw which I have all ready posted photo of.
The Powermatic Planer
You can see more photos of the restoration process at my web site. Excelsior Woodworks.
I am hoping to start on this sad puppy by the weekend. Shouldn't take more than a couple of weeks to complete. Assuming I don't find any really unexpected problems that is! 1946 Delta HD shaper. Once this one is complete I will have even. That is half the iron in my shop will be restored and in service.
Who wonders if he has sawdust or rust in the veins??
