Taking the machine apart was a challenge. When I purchased it I got the electrical EWD and CWD prints ( Elementry Wiring Diagram and Connection Wiring Diagrams) but the shop had lost the manual. I have looked on the internet but a machine of this vintage was before the internet. I did find 2 new machines with DRO's never used in the Europe in my seach.
A lot of the machine is put togehter with dowel pins and hidden screws. The machine was also painted with a brush by somebody and that covered alot too. My dad retired and at 83 would spend an hour or so each day scraping and cleaning the parts that I took off the night before. The Gibbs and ways were good, covered in gunk and sticky old oil but there were no scratches or rust spots to contend with. The table that comes off weighs about 70 pounds and the traveling Tee slot face is over 100 pounds. Each sub assembly's small parts was put in a plastic bucket and I used old paper coffee cups to hold the bolts, washers and bearings and keep them in order. I wrote on the inside of the cup what part of the machine the parts came from. I took lots of pictures as I went, and used 2 gallons of varsol and paper towels to clean the old oil and dirt from the mill. I have a wood stove that is brick lined and that is where the old oily rags and paper towels ended up.
