I am a woodworker.
I have a 1951 Delta Milwaukee DP-220 drill press.
I have a 1952 Delta Milwaukee 28-207 band saw.
In my past I had a 1955 Shopsmith Mark-5, and a 16 inch DeWalt RAS, and a Rockwell 10 inch RAS.
Now I'm looking for a Unisaw.
Can be older model that needs repairs. Can anyone help me find one close to me?

Past major projects:
Chess set & box.

I bought me a 1944 Unisaw. Has a Dayton motor, 1989, 2 HP, 3450 RPM, 220 V. Has aftermarket adaptor plate for universal motor mount.

Did not have correct pulleys on motor or arbor. I have bought both on eBay, 3.5 inch and 3.25 inch. Planning to put them on soon.

Thinking about wet sanding current paint until original paint shows up.

Not sure how to clean table top and both wings. Have heard about wet-sanding with mineral spirits.
Or thought about using past wax and scotch-pads.
Not sure what to clean with. Have even heard of people using WD40. Opinions vary. Will welcome any input.
