I bought this machine through a local online auction from the original owner.
I hope I look this good when I'm 61 years old.
It came with the original miter gauge, two original paper alignment pegs, and an additional accessory whose purpose escapes me.
This model has a dust port in back, and it appears there was a dust hood on the front under the table at some point.
The table tilts in both directions and has a vernier to accurately set at a tenth of a degree.
The tables easily moves down below the disk for sandpaper changes using a counter spring, and there is a disc brake to slow the 1/2" thick steel disk.
Note the strange electrical box on the left, which I believe is a step-up transformer from 220 to 550 volt three phase.
