Comments:
Rescued this from seller who had no use for it via Craig's List. Been looking for one of these for a while. Table is a little rusty, miter gauge is m.i.a., tires are shot. Saw runs pretty well, hasn't been used much during it's life. Motor seems to be period correct, although has shaft on both sides of motor. Guess original purchaser (no idea who he was or where it came from) needed a motor when he bought this, and this was all that was available. Original paint in pretty good shape. Stand is something out of a horror movie, but I didn't buy it for the stand. Downloaded the manual from the site (thanks to the individual who made this possible!) and will begin a little T.L.C. soon. Trying to find myself a drill press from this era, so far with absolutely no luck. Could be persuaded to part with it for a trade deal for a drill press, if the press is right (pun intended).
