10ER #83509 Walter Matthews
10ER Shopsmith serial # 83509 of Walter Matthews, Dallas, Texas. It was built by Magna Engineering
Corporation in about 1953 and custom restored by M K Campbell Jr. MKC Tools in
the year of our Lord 2001.
Restoration process started in Feb. 2001 and finished in late June.
The machine was totally disassembled and
all parts bead blasted to remove rust, paint, dirt, and aluminum corrosion.
Cast iron parts were painted with a gray hammer finish paint. The
locking handles, spring housing and dial, rip fence bars
and saw guard bracket were chrome plated. All other bare metal parts
were black oxided (cold process) and coated with T-9 rust preventer.
This included the saw table support rods, pinion shaft, caster parts and
such as snap rings, set screws, ect. New Fafnir bearings were installed
in the drive sleeve and quill. The bench top is solid 5/4 oak
stained with clear poly finish. It is a complete machine with all standard
accessories plus speed changer, factory metal bench legs and castors. The
last 2 pictures are what the machine looked like when Walter brought it to me.
Enjoy Walter! and thank you!
