This is a sampling. These items are going into the cottage. I've decided to make a little workshop there, due to this windfall.
I could not find anything 2200 and that looks like what you have but those might help anyways.
My advice is to make sure there is no play in the arbor, or bad bearings and then get the blade set dead on square with the miter slots. Then set the fence parallel to the miter slots. I made a simple jig for my saw. I just cut a piece of hardwood to fit perfectly in the miter slot, then attached a cheap dial indicator to it. It made getting things set perfect really easy.
My cordless electric chainsaw has a 1.2 horsepower motor. I will try to adapt it to run several belt driven tools. This would probably be the world's first cordless electric Beaver tablesaw.
The router is about 1.9 hp.
Now that I have a good start on a shop, I'm looking for other stuff. I'll build a work table and grab a free dresser or two.
I took some good detail shots of the home built vise. A pretty simple build.

I think this is a great idea. Hope you post pics once you've made the adaptation.

It's on a table that's worth $30.
you have a high quality piece of equipment there Dale
Delta/Milwaukee is top of the line
That's good news Mike. My last experience with a lathe was in 1978. Grade 8 shop class.
The lathe works. Here's a few more pictures.
I gave it a good run yesterday. It worked pretty well, turning these bowls. In the time it took to use the lathe, I could have easily carved out the wet burls with hand tools.
I hit the mother load of apple burls, the day before buying the lathe.
I tried using the lathe without the belt and motor hooked up. When my friend spun it by hand, I was able to do a pretty good job, using the cordless chainsaw instead of gouges.
I'm going to make a very simple lathe for using at my property. The wood will be spun quite slowly using a highly geared cordless electric drill. The chainsaw will chew away the high spots as the piece rotates.
It takes me about 2.5 hours to crank one out , I should be able to get it down to under an hour with a crapy lathe !
Lots out there for as much as the traffic will bear $35- $50 U.S.D. Big AL

Dale, that old table saw has features you can't find on today's saws, it looks to have a rack and pinion adjustment on the fence, something that the old atlas/craftsman saws did, makes them a pleasure to use. Also, forrest makes 8" combo blades that work like a dream on those old saws, if you look at the old B&W Fine Woodworking magazines, you see lots of them before the advertising money required everything to be bigger and new.
That lathe is a great lathe, probably has a #1 morse taper which is common and a 34/16 threaded spindle which is also common and available. Those tools are cheap chinese imports and while serviceable will not hold their edge long. Quality tools sharpened correctly, turning a bowl should be much faster than carving one, there are lots of online plans to make a wolverine style sharpening setup for a grinder, makes keeping them sharp easy and fast.
Now you just need to luck into a good bandsaw and you are set!
