Resharpened is OK but i would start with a new combination thin kerf. Sharp is essential to safe wood working.

I have a similar question. I purchased a rusty Mark V Model 500 and am renovating it. I have been using vinegar baths to sucessfully remove rust and PVC tubes filled with water and potato chunks to clean the ways. I left my saw table legs and quill in vinegar too long (3 days) and it removed the finish on both. I believe the finish on the quill was black paint, but the finish on the legs I'm not sure about. Was it Aluminum paint? I'm not too concerned about protecting either, as a coat of Johnson's paste wax will do that, but I would like to at least refinish the legs for cosmetic reasons. Suggestions on both, please.

The quill was Black Oxide.

The table legs were plated.

I suggest using evaporust on any shiny parts and oil/steel wool on black oxide parts. The evaporust will not 'go too far' as an acid(vinegar) would. Besides it works faster.

Evaporust WILL remove black oxide.

And, if you would like to restore the black oxide finish, visit your local gun store, or search the internet for 'gun bluing'.

Never mind I figured out what it is. It is the mortise bracket. No other attachments with. Guess I need to find a video how to use it. Find it while look8ing through product catalog

Check this link for the Mortise.

This is for the current Mortising System but other than the addition of the "T" nut little has changed since it's introduction in the late 1940's.
