Beautiful job on the restoration, really, really nice. I've never seen one painted white, but it looks great. From the original pictures it looks like it was in pretty good condition, but I wonder what you did to the internals; did you replace/upgrade the bearings? I have one of these machines, an older version (with the cast legs) which I have been in the process of restoring for some time now. One of the aluminum step pulleys has a chunk missing from the lowest sheave, and I haven't found a source for a replacement. I am considering a variable frequency drive to get around the problem, but yours looks so good all-original that I'm reconsidering. Any insights you can offer into the process would be much appreciated.
