Love the machine, finished up my boat seats really came out nice.

I have since totally disassembled the table and stand, the stand was real rusty to the point of being pitted. I grinded and sanded and grinded and sanded until I was blue in the face. Anyway repainted it with a gray hammered looking paint and it looks great. The feet were pretty weak due to all the rust and grinding so I built some wooden block to bolt it to, this added some strength to the feet and will allow me to move inside the house if need be. I have also ordered a new top, was going to build one but after all the time spent on the legs just decided to purchase it. That has arrived and I have attached it to the legs added a new drawer and light and it looks like a new machine. Additionally I purchased a new servo motor and installed it, so basically I have about $800 into the thing probably more than I had originally planned but it is a really nice setup and should hold it value well.

One new question, how do you set the tension on the belt?
