Got one of these donated to the furniture bank.   Plan to use as a drill press.  Interesting to finally meet one.  Boy, lots of steel and cast in that puppy, must weight 2x what my Model 500 does.  Lots of the ferrous metals replace by aluminum.  Read the manual and it takes on 8" saw blade.  I remember seeing some of them at the SS factory product line -- still in active use 50+ years later.

Mine is 66 years old, and still runs like a Swiss watch. I can't wear it on my wrist, though. :(

By my calculations you were in diapers when your 10 ER rolled off the line...

No point really, just an observation.:D

Yea and 60 years two days ago I was just now sworn in to the Army. Which I might have been the quickest person to have ever gotten an emergency leave from that Army for as my folks were returning home from dropping me off to be cared for by the Army,,,,, they had a head on collision before they got to said home!!!!

I would have been two at the time, and toilet-trained! :P Well, outhouse-trained, anyway.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
