Dawn is a real sweetheart. She had all of the set screws and bolts presoaked with WD40 and the bench bolts already loosened so the disassembly went very smoothly. As I was dissassembling the Shopsmith and putting parts into the car, she was bringing tools of her fathers for me to take with me.
I am honored to be trusted with the overhaul and cleanup and being the caretaker of her dad's tools.
I made quite a haul as you can see. There is even a 2 speed hand drill. Never seen one before ...
Here are some pics to prove it happened ....
If you are reading this Dawn, thank you again, I will take care of them and use them.
I am actually starting on the way tubes tomorrow....
JPG, does the crazy green leg color mean anything significant?
