Sears Dunlap "Economy" 8" bench saw, built by Double A Products.

Machined cast iron top attached to a stamped steel base.
Machined steel 1½" diameter pulley.

>>HISTORY<<
Purchased at the estate sale of a gentleman.
Based on the 1940s Dunlap lathe and scroll saw, he may have purchased the saw new.
No further history is known.
Saw appears to have been kept inside all its life.
The light top surface rust appears to have been caused by a splash of water from the near by laundry tub.
Overall, the saw is in great condition for its age.
Cleaned up threads and straightened J-bolt on rear fence.
Bearings appear to be very dry--reconditioning with SAE30 non-detergent oil, prior to running the saw.

March 2019:
After repeated filling of the bearing reservoir, the arbor shaft turns smoothly.
Cleaned the saw top using a Porter-Cable Restorer and abrasive drum.
The miter gauge bar was wire brushed and polished.
Ran test cuts with the saw mounted to a Craftsman Universal stand.
The saw is power by a Craftsman ½ hp 3450 rpm motor and 2” pulley.
Test cuts were made in ¾ softwood and 2x maple.
