I have no idea what I'm doing so I figured I'd start sanding and painting before I even know what goes where or if all is accounted for. I just loaded it all up, brought it home, and set all the acoutrimonts in the corner of the garage.
Haven't decided if I'll do the smaller footprint vertical storage or the standard horizontal bench. Though I'd see primary use as a lathe most likely.
I've heard there's lots of great info on these fantastic machines. I'm interested in any beginner info and finishing recommendations; paint types/brands - anything to avoid...
Hi Mike. Welcome aboard.
Congratulations on your acquisition,
but then I am biased, I just bought my third 10er.
We would love to see pictures of your prize.
Did it come with a speed changer?
If you are wanting to use it as a lathe, (good choice) I would go with the standard bench, (more solid), and make the legs so that the spindle is at your elbow height, that will be the most comfortable for turning.
Here is a link to a book that tells how to use your 10er that you can download. https://www.dropbox.com/s/x8nssglpvm4jj5n/10er%20Digital%20Edition%20Power%20Tool%20Woodworking%20for%20Everyone.pdf?dl=0
And here is a link to the manual for the jig saw. http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/detail.aspx?id=2703
