Comments:
I am a newby at this but here goes: Just got this baby home and unloaded. Purchased off ebay and had it shipped to me freight collect. Seller had no idea of the actual weight (700 + lbs.) so freight bill turned out to be twice what I was told to expect. Still worth it. Now I have to decide whether to change the motor or buy a phase converter as the motor is 5 hp. 3 phase baldor motor. Any opinions would be welcomed. Also I have never seen a fence like the one on this saw. It is very heavy and slides very smooth on the glides you can see in the photos. It locks up very securely front and back on the triangular shapped rails. If anyone has any information on this fence, I would be very interested in learning more about it. May not be the fastest to set but seems very secure.
