My grandfatther was a woodworker for his entire life. After be passed away last year, I was fortunate enough to inherit his Delta woodworking machines from the late forties to early fifties. Once I had the chance to rewire and refurbish most of the machines, I finished up the new workshop to give them a fitting new home, including the 75+ year old workbench.

All you need to do is mild restoration of the antique workstation and you are good to go. It is not easy to start from scratch but you already have a lead since your beloved grandfather left such a priceless piece of treasure for you.

It's great to see your grandfather's legacy live on. Too often the old tried-and-true tools and machines get cast aside and deteriorate into uselessness. Nice work in preserving this collection.
