Pre serial number said to have been owned by an Italian cabinetmaker. Cast iron wheels. It came on an open welded stand and with a Century motor that seemed to be it's original based on the installation with little blocks of wood under it and the uniform grime. It pretty much resembles the Delta badged motors and has a similar switch that can be operated with the rod. It came with no belt guard.
I have upgraded the saw with a cast iron stand and cast iron belt guard and 1/2 hp Delta repulsion induction motor from a 1943 saw that was rescued from a scrapyard. A later riser kit has been added. I will be using this saw for woodcutting. The '43 saw was restored and put on the open stand to be my metal cutter.

Comments: Westinghouse De-Ion Motor Watchman This was installed on the cast iron stand. It seemed pretty nice so I'll keep it until I can get the proper Delta switch box and plate.
