Sears used that gold color in the '60's. Mine is a bit newer and is grey and I need to set it up on a stand....$50.00 from a tool sale.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Can't find a date on it anywhere. Got the table out of the electrolysis bucket today, and removed the upper arm, (found rats nest!). More parts into the electrolysis tub.

Table done, tiebolt derusted and painted. Slight overspray on table top, will remove with steel wool after paint is completely dry. Edges of table were cast rough and never finished when saw was new, took flap grinder to it after derust, knocked it down some. Paint is rustoleum machine grey.

Base tore apart, top arm cleaned and painted. Here's a shot of the "scotch yoke" assembly, and a pic of the "genuine Craftsman" pulley.

Well, it's starting to come together. I was tempted to go with cobalt blue, but I opted for originality, so it's grey, pretty close to OEM.

Dilemma - do I pop rivet the data plate back on, or do I hunt for the appropriate drive rivets?

drive rivets for sure

Why stop 1/2 way? You can possibly find brass tacks or other small brass round head fasteners. Nice Job. Machine grey means all different things to every different paint manufacturer out there. None are the same shade. BTDT myself!

Gosh, what a memory for me. My dad bought me one when I was maybe 12 or 13 (I am 71) I remember it being a little darker grey. It ran much smoother than anything out there today. Good find and great restoration.

Alch... Did you get a "killer deal" on your Dunlap Scrollsaw? I have a 1951 Dunlap scroll saw... mine is just a little smaller. Gave 35 bucks for mine.

At one time we had a Sears Service Center in Indianapolis. You could take the numbers off of a machine and they would look it up on microphish and tell you the month and year it was manufactured. I did this several times with some old Sears and Dunlap Machine tools. That Service center is closed now.

Free - sort of. Belonged to my wife's father. It went to one of the sons. Sat in his barn for several years. He gets it back when I'm done using it.

Finished up the Dunlap motor this morning. Disassembled, cleaned, painted, lubed and reassembled. It runs! And gave in to the blue paint - rustoleum metallic blue, flat black base. Removed about 1/2 lb. of sawdust from inside. Guess I'll mount it above the saw instead of below.....

Sounds like it belongs with you. So, given that, I hope you're never "done using it."

Great restoration work! It's nice to see these machines loved and cared for. You're doing honorable work

True. They can have it back when they pry it from your cold, dead fingers
