      I hand scraped a piece of aluminum plate to adapt a small vise from ebay.
      The machine had almost no wear, the motor worked fine. A new belt was installed.

              A very good job on your restoration. It is always nice to old iron restored.
              "OLD IRON" by Rudy Kouhoupt was one of the first articles I read in HSM mag.
              Been looking for a hander operated planner similar to his to restore. Again nice work. Jim

                    Very nice! I am nearly done with a old Barnes drill press myself. I am just trying to get a motor for it.

                      It sure looks like it but the centerline of it didn't line up with the centerline of the pulley. I guess it all depends on what motor was used. Maybe it was needed for a plain bushing motor.
                      Thanks for all the pats on the back. When some people (relatives) see me working on something like this they can't understand why I " waste my time".
                      I like old iron.
                      I should be like them and sit on the sofa and watch tv instead-no thanks.
