This is a nice little Hammond printer's trim saw, obtained off a local on-line listing. It is a Hammond "Ben Franklin" TrimOSaw, model BF10B. It's an interesting little machine, not as stout as the more common Hammond gliders, but beefier than it may appear. It does not have a sliding table like a glider, but has a built-in machined steel miter gauge with a dial-in fence stop assembly.

It has a sheet steel cabinet, a hanging motor mount on the back, and a cast iron lever for blade height adjustment. There is a little three-wheeled rolling dust bin that fits snugly inside the cabinet. The setup also came with a nice assortment of accessories, including a lamp, hold-down assembly, right side mini-fence, tool holder w/ arbor wrench, miter vise, tool grinding attachment, and one unknown item that I don't see in the manual.
