I have been looking for one of these for a couple years. I saw a few, but time didn't permit or the drive was just too far. I picked this up for $120 not too far away. I am pleased with the price. The top is in good shape and shows very little indication of wear. I expect it was little used. It needs bearings and I expect I will do a paint job as well. I am still batting around how I will configure it. There is a 1HP motor that came with it. I doubt I will put that back on. I have a little used 1-1/2HP motor from a Craftsman (Emerson) saw and think I will mount that at least for the time being. As far as the end result for the motor it might be a 2 or 3 HP 220 motor or, if I could find one, one of those factory 1 1/2 HP motors that were options at the time...then again maybe the 1-1/2 I put on it might stay there forever. More than likely I will build a router table extension for the right side and set it up for 36" to the right side of the blade. I will have to manufacture the rails. I have 2 Delta T2 fences that I will use on it. On the left side I am still deciding if I will put one of the 8" extensions to keep some of the character of an old saw, use a cast router table extension from my existing saw or get one of those saw stop cast extensions for $100. Anyway, I couldn't be more happy with the saw and hope to show some completed images in the near future.
