Comments:
One of the nicest DeWalt saws I've seen in ten years of tool hunting, this GWI sold at auction in Dry Run, PA in October 2013. It belonged to a retired pattern maker who decided to sell off his tools and move to a retirement home with his wife. A very nice gentleman of tremendous skill. The saw was complete except the power switch which had been re-routed from the arm to the right cabinet side(a very convenient spot). The paint was dirty, but nearly pristine, excepting the motor housing which had suffered some paint loss. A tooth brush, some simple green, and a little elbow grease brought the paint to life. After a cleaning, thorough adjustment, and A Mr Sawdust table, it's as good as new.
