This saw started me down the old busted rusty wood working machine road. It was given to me by a co-worker who bought it at a thrift store. The miter gauge and guard were broken, and the fence was missing the rear lock knob. It was otherwise in decent condition. I managed to find the extension wings on ebay and I made extended front and rear guide rails to accomodate the wings and get more travel for the fence. I repaired the miter guage and the guard and made a new lock knob. I had the fence and all the knobs chromed. I replaced the oil-impregnated bronze bushings (from McMaster Carr), and refinished or replaced most of the hardware. A fellow member was kind enough to recreate the Dunlap logo on his computer, from which I had new waterslide decals made. The first run came out a little light, but I hope to have better ones soon. I found an old roto-cone motor mount that is adjustable for blade tension. I recently used the saw to make new molding for my bathroom and it didn't skip a beat. Even the cuts made with the table tilted weren't that bad. Email me for more photos/ details.
