So I found this attached to a 519 I got from a neighbor's basement. It is not in great shape, but finding them in any condition is rare. If anyone is interested, I'd like to trade for a 519 metal fan, as it was replaced with one of those bad grey plastic ones. Email me at the if you are interested.

When I restored my 508 and needed a belt lifter, I found two of them on the same day using eBay by looking at the floor polishers. If you need a belt lifter you can find them on floor polishers many times never used like new. Side note: I believe the 508 belt lifter is the rarest of the 500 series.

That is actually how I got my first one! It was mint except for a small yet deep scratch in the logo. One difference seems to be that 508 polishers are called Renovation System instead of Sanitary system.

And just to think I got a 508 belt lifter for 'free' on an old mismatched 505 a while back.
This machine also has the uncommon widebody all-aluminum emtor tray from an older model.
