Thanks all for the Kudos on these restorations! This all started when I was looking for power tools for my shop. Everything out there was over priced and lacking on quality. I got turned on to Craigslist one day and then the addiction began. I live in the Northeast and it seems like there is an unlimited supply of old machinery availible for good prices in this area. 1 by 1 I started building a colection of vintage power tools for the shop. I got a lot of peices for my Dad as well. Restoring the tablesaw for my Dad was joy to do. I was so excited to give this one to Dad! Restoring the Van Norman was a whole different animal. Once I got it apart I looked at it for about 6 months wondering what I got myself into and then another year of restoration. It was in rough shape when i got it. It was buried in someones garage for about 30 years. This machine came with both abor supports, the outer overarm brace, boring and drilling attachment, 10 inch power driven dividing head with the box filled with gears and dividing plates and the tail stock, L-W Toledo 6 1/2 inch swivel vise, about 40 collets, 6 arbors, 3 shell mill holders, endmill holder and all the original brochures and manuals. For the price I couldn't say no. All this old machinery was built to last, and to me, are an ode to the pride in workmanship by the American working class that built this country. I am proud to be able to keep some of these out of the scrap yards and back to working condition.
