103.24230 in pretty good shape. Obviously paint is old and oxidized and exposed cast iron has a rust patina (i.e. cutting table), but again ... pretty good shape.
I have another newer (but maybe not really as good) Craftsman that I use so I'm going to fix it the older one for a DIY'r nephew.
The only thing needed (perhaps other than wheel rubber) is the lower thrust bushing (not really a bearing).
Where can I get a replacement lower thrust "bearing"? Tried Sears/Crafstman = obsolete.
If I can't find an original or equal, I may just make one using a ball bearing and a 0.375" post.
When completed I'll post pictures.
