OP: 6-1-2018. Purchased at local university surplus in non-operating condition. 1 HP TEFC Baldor motor runs fine. Arbor pulley was wollowed out, and replaced with Congress 2" diam X 1/2 shaft dia. pulley.
Original bearings were 6201-RS-8 bearings; replaced with 6201 LL -1/2 bearings from Accurate. Runs fine now. I use Norton blades - only non-reinforced blades I can find for 1/2 inch arbor.

Came with nice shop-made 1/4 steel plate base with fence - all very heavy duty!

Parts are still available from Kalamazoo Industries.

Will use to cut small steel tube and rod stock.
