Anyone out there in the "woodworking wilderness" (where we all reside) know of where I can get downloadable manuals/parts lists/exploded views of pre-1970's portable electric power tools...the ones the mannies no longer provide support for
? Stanley, Wen, Craftsman, Rockwell, PC, B&D, etc.
Spare parts would be great, also, but they can be a drag if you need to buy another (non-working) tool for one small part especially when you consider shipping costs
Also, can anyone steer us towards screw suppliers (the type used in assembly of power tools...some plastic, some aluminum). Machine screws anr easier to find, however
! We need fasteners of the type that resemble "sheet rock screws, but have no point, are "skip thread", same diameter up and down shank, usually fully threaded with pan heads.
McFeeleys (pardon spelling), comes up short on this one!
Thanx for caring,
