I finished restoring this last year but just now got enough room in the shop to position it where it can get used and with enough room to take pictures. These are not common saw but the last few years have seen a few surface. I first saw this saw at Don Peterson's about 12 years ago but couldn't make a deal on it then. A couple years ago when Don started seriously downsizing, I talked to him about it again and we made a deal. The saw was complete but kinda rough as it had been sitting for a long time in the back of Don's iron Valhalla. It was missing the quadrant and miters so patterns had to be made for those, cattail did the castings. Making the quadrant was the hardest part, at that time I couldn't find an original to copy so had to wing it from pictures, and an older American quadrant that a friend has. So it's not an exact copy and I didn't have confidence that I could mill/drill the index pin hole in the right place so added the ability to adjust it. The saw is a heavy bugger and built stout. As you can see I still need to hook up the dust collection. I really like both hand wheels being on the front, no more hands and knees under the auxiliary table! The little wrench on the front is for the mechanism to move the sliding table left for blade access or to widen the throat for dado blades. The little port in the side of the table below the fence in photo 3 is for access to the motor locks for changing blades, it looks hard to access but it's not. I really appreciate the help from Donovan H. "squarehead" for letting me measure, photograph, and otherwise poke and prod his AWWM Co quadrant, and Jeff Cummings for the gracious loan of his original miters so patterns could be made.
