So look I decided my dad and granddads old tools deserved better than laying in a basement rusting away after being submerged twice and basically not being touched since he.,...... long story point is my old man did not really care about much after he had his business ripped away from him....by all means google "Busby Stereo V. Parish National Bank," I will wait....... but and not knocking him me and my brother never went hungry and always had clothes on our back and a roof over our head. But I grew up with the dad I had and everyone who knew telling me about the man he was......... point being this I had no business being angry at him but I guess that is something it takes picking up a rifle, going off to war and growing old enough to realize how wrong I was for holding him to a measure I very often don't live up to myself. So I decide I never made it right but I think to myself if I can make his tools work again and cut true maybe I can make it a little less wrong. So far I have restored a Walker Turner TA1180BN arbor saw and P908 planner/joiner and am working on his 1/2 inch model 107.28533 Craftsman Drill motor. Guys I have seen some well made and damn near borderline works of art knocking the rust off these things and learned more than I ever thought I could about just how good my dad at his craft. I gotta ask why do your tools suck now? is it because you moved all your supply lines overseas? Is it because if you make something that I can buy a five dollar part for and replace the part that wont run I have a tool that will run another 90 plus years so you can't sell me the newest piece of plastic garbage designed to break after five years? Are you really saving me a dollar by selling me cheaper.... is it really cheaper? my dads drill went under water twice and other than a cracked housing for a motor brush it just needed some kroil and tlc...... the motor checks for continuity and Sorry but five ten dollar part 90 more years of life vs 200 dollar drill every five years and battery packs that ....... lets be real if your relying on battery packs your probably gonna waste time none of us have........... Point being please for the luv of mike just tell me where I can find replacement housings.
