Another one from my father in law; machine was inoperative; cabinet had bad water rings from wet glasses. Some one had tried to refinish it and had just put a stain varnish on top without any prep. Disassembled, stripped, restained, oiled with Watco and reassembled using all original bolts, screws, hinges. Oiled and got machine working with a new belt. Sadly someone had painted the machine, I tried gently stripping the paint and was able to get some of the old gold flaked letters and detailed work to come up. Amazing the machine has a drip pan when it is in working position to catch oil, it was very obvious that it needed constant oiling.
