Well, fast-forward to 2019, and that thought bubbled its way back to the surface and lo and behold, I dragged home a Mark V Model 510 the other day. While it was in excellent condition overall, it had been neglected over the years since it was made in 1998. I spent the better part of the last two days disassembling, cleaning, lubricating, adjusting, tuning, and reassembling. The sheaves had never been lubricated and were seized, I got those freed up and and oiled. Everything's humming smoothly now. There's a bunch of stuff not shown in these pictures too, but here's a few before and after shots.
It also came with a SS 11" band saw, which wasn't that important to me since I have a nice Delta 14" of about the same vintage, but it still was a nice cherry on top of what I felt like was already a pretty good deal. I'll be prowling around the forums getting reacquainted with these machines. Thanks for everything I've learned here already, even before I registered!
