I ebay'ed this saw last year and have not modified it or restored it in any way. It was in a school and has the telltale garish orange knobs to prove it. 7.5hp 3ph, left tilt and the standard table extensions (48"x38" table I believe). They call this saw a 12-14 but my 14" blade stands proud of the table when fully retracted.

I would like to take the whole saw apart and restore it to shiny new condition, but it cuts great right now and I'd hate to take it out of service. I'm running a 12" Forrester WW2 blade, and use a crappy old 14" for rough cuts.

Since there are no PM72 pic's posted, I thought this would be a welcome addition to the collection.
