Rust is not an issue with this machine. The housing is galvanized steel and has only one small drip at an after-market drain plug on the bottom. I am sure that will be easy to remedy
The biggest issue is wear on the carriage. It moves a 1/4" this way and that if you wiggle it. The bores where the lateral guides move back and forth when you align the rough to take off another slab are wallowed and the screw threads on the adjustment are very loose.
The bearings on the arbor do not scare me but I am not sure of my ability to rebuild the carriage.
Is there a place or person to contact? For direction or help?
Thanks,
Bill
