This was a 20.00 Craigslist find. It was in need of tires and a lower guide bearing but otherwise complete. With new tires I plan on just running saw as is because the paint is in excellent shape. I believe this little saw has had an easy life so far.

Update: I completed a restore on this in mid 2017. I was able to find a factory stand literally sitting outside in a yard for $4.00. Less than 3 blocks away from where I found the stand I located a Delta motor on CL. I added a Delta Belt guard that I bought from OWWM BOYD after a couple minor modifications. I also located a factory switch rod on ebay. I added a riser block so I could use blades in a length that are available off the shelf. The most expensive part of the restore was the pair of blade thrust bearings. They were found on Ebay for 59.99 for the pair, but worth it. They are much better made than the factory versions with a flat steel face. The "factory" ones are currently only available through Renovo parts for 15.00 less than I paid, but; I cant speak for their quality.
