>>MACHINE<<
Sears Dunlap standard duty tilt-table 7" bench saw.
Cast iron base and top.
Elevation crank moves the arbor support.
Missing the two original side sheet metal covers and miter gauge.

>>HISTORY<<
This saw was given to me by a fellow OWWMer.
And another OWWMer was kind enough to Rucker it to ArnFest 2014 for me.
No further history is known.

UPDATE-February 2017:
Disassembled for clean-up.
Cleaned top with knotted wire cup wheel in an angle grinder, then buffed with Scotchbrite pad on a ROS.
A previous owner hacked a relief in the left top edge to increase pulley hub clearance.
Cleaned body casting with mineral spirits and buffed paint with felt wheel and white rouge compound.
Most other parts were cleaned up with a wire wheel, then buffed.
Machined a replacement steel oil plug that was missing from one hole.
Ground the base casting pad level, below the elevation bevel gear, to remove draft angle (see photo). Bevel gear turns much smoother. Added thicker ½" USS thrust washer to make up alignment difference to crank bevel gear.
The cast iron body was tapped and the elevation scale reattached using #2-56 x 3/16" machine screws instead of the box nail style rivets.
Filled arbor bearing wells with SAE30 non-detergent oil.
Lubricated all moving parts with LPS-2.
Adjusted all alignment settings.
Test cuts were made using a Craftsman ½hp 1750rpm motor on floating rail, with a 4" pulley and 4L340 V-belt.
All adjustment functions work well and are very smooth.

UPDATE-August 2017:
I no longer own this saw. I gave it to a fellow OWWMer.
