I purchased this from a very nice local seller thinking that it would go well with a Unisaw. It has slightly clownish paint, but is mostly complete and ready for a cleaning and the basic bearings and electrical wiring updates that are typical of these older machines. The only really interesting thing about this machine is that at some point, somebody decided to take the top off while the machine was right side up. This left the motor and the entire assembly dangling from the wiring and the elevation handle sticking through the front of the cabinet. It was a bot of a wrestling match to safely remove the remaining components for travel. The sale included a small number of cutters, but nothing spectacular. It is basically a bare bones machine that will need some attention to make it fully functional. I am hoping that I do not discover any significant problems as I clean it up, but if so, I have been assured that these machines can generally be repaired and that part are available when needed.
