This 1963 saw was given to my grandfather in 1965 to keep for a friend who finally told him to just keep it. My grandad was a table saw man and it did not get much use. The saw sat on the floor in a lakefront garage full of mud dauber nests and rust for +30 years. I brought it home in 2004 and carefully restored it as a gift for my dad to have and use. The photo is after restoration in 2005.
The most difficult information to find were the original table dimensions and specs for all of the mounting and leveling holes as well as how the key switch worked. Jake Brain provided this to me since has the same saw with an original table. I found him on this site. If anyone needs them I will share the specs.

The original color markings and labels were repainted and replaced. I even found original wrenches and the anti-kickback rod and pawls in an ebay auction.
