Purchased this used on ebay in 2002 for $35. Restoration is near complete as can be seen in the photos. I am still looking for a fence that clamps directly onto the table front (no rails), a mitre guage, and splitter/guard. Someday.... The interesting feature of this saw is that the arbor does not have ball bearings, it has bronze bearings and an oil reservoir with a wick which sits in the reservoir and wraps around the arbor (shaft). I have to add that the shaft has absolutely no play in it which is testimony to this method of oiling the bronze bearings. The raising mechanism has no play in it either and operates very smoothly.
The Rockwell tag has "Milwaukee Wisconsin" printed very small at the bottom. The rivet holes in the serial number tag are 2 3/4" apart.
