Well, I tried to resist, I really, really did. But that lasted for maybe 4 hours until I couldn't stand it anymore and I finally emailed the seller. 60 miles round trip, less than 24 hours later, and this Four Footed Unisaw has a new home in the 'burbs.

The seller is a 3rd generation contractor, finally retiring and closing his business. He had multiple Unisaws, but this was the only FFU. The seller thought his grandfather was the original owner. They used a 12" Powr-Kraft table saw in the shop (green, upper left in 1st pic), and the Unisaws served as portable "job-site" saws!

It does have a few apologies... it is missing the motor data plate, the switch cover, and the dust door. Somewhere in the history of this saw, someone must not have liked tags. Oh well, those can be recreated. Of course, finding an appropriate dust door is not so easy. Does anyone out there in OWWM land make reproduction flat dust doors? And how can I tell the HP of the motor without the date plate?
