Steve, I hope someone can rescue this machine. It is easy enough to make a table with arborite top and make some roller guides for it. If I was lived closer to you I would take it off you hands.
Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut, that held its ground.
its rescueable for sure, i used it to rebuild the one i have now
the biggest issue is the slide rods for the upper wheel bearing carrier, they are loose where they slide in the carrier, so the upper wheel is loose, i thought it was bearings, but the slide rods on my other machine are a nice sliding fit
anyway i dont need it, its almost complete and its gotta go
