This was my first vintage machine. I bought it on ebay for $50.

It was very rusty on top when I got it but a little effort and it cleaned up nice. I want to take it apart and clean and paint it but I use it too much right now. Maybe after we move and I get the Darra James 12" to replace it with I will. (still kicking myself for not buying that machine when I had the chance for $100)

It came with one 10" cast iron extension wing and a 1 h.p. Craftsman motor (model number 113.19063) I addded the second and recently added two more 12" cast iron wings. I'm not cutting a lot of plywood or anything, this machine also doubles as my assembly table. The extra 40# it adds to the weight of the saw probably helps too.

Comments: I built the base and added the switch because the toggle switch on the motor was hard to reach
