This little saw followed me home the other day. The table top looks dreadful in the pictures but I wire wheeled it and it came out much nicer than I had any right to expect, no pits and only some staining. I'll take it apart someday and acid etch the top. Otherwise the saw looks great, right down to the original paint. As the pictures show the saw is pretty much original and complete, with two exceptions. The blade guard is missing, and the motor is a non-original 1HP. The controls work smoothly and the saw runs quietly and cuts reasonably well, although it could use a new blade. The only real downside is, the fence is pretty much hopeless, unless I am missing something, which I doubt. Being as it is on casters, this saw may replace the 10" Atlas as my jobsite saw, although the Atlas has a much more capable fence. I haven't done much with the saw yet, but it seems like it would be a great saw for someone who is a hobbyist making small projects.
