Lucky , just after craigslist add was posted.Sometimes I win this ones a pretty good one I think. Shes got some rust , quite a bit of oily gunk but she seems to be ok . The owner even delivered her for a very fair price, he said the motor was trash but its not the capacitor was blown, so ive ordered a $10 capacitorshould be here in a few days. Then the fun begins im planing to degrease her and clean it up reprime and paint her up nice. I have to rewire it seems he only ran it one direction for drilling operations. I had been looking at one in georgia with no motor for $900. Plus it had been sitting outside for months. Without going crazy yet the backlash isnt real bad about 40 thousandth , I think I can adjust that out at the nut . Both directions seem the same. Anybody know if these came with the covers over the cross over slide like the bridgports?? Ive been pretty busy with mower repairs , just picked up a clarke parking lot sweeper , should help pay some of the mill back. I feel like a kid with new toys at christmas but cant play till summer with them. Shoot I already ordered new handles to replace the plastic ones. A quart of emerald green enamel paint and three spray cans of primer, couldnt find it in a quart ,can. Have some pictures but not sure how to post. My ipad died and im using my daughters samsung , big difference I cant even figure how to answer emails on this . Technology dumb I guess. Well must sign off my next purchase will be a shipping container to empty all the extras and woodworking tools , ive been trying to sell them for two years or so anybody need any???
