I bought the saw a few years back out of the local wanted ads from the son-in-law of the previous owner, a retired printing teacher who used it in his retirement for woodworking. Didn't know what I was getting into, I was just looking for a small table saw. How I initially found OWWM.com. The arbor has apparently been modified and a single phase motor has been added.

The interesting part is the adjustable mitre gauge, it's finely machined and is in 'picas'. The paperwork is posted, I sent them in to John O a few months back (in kind for posting the paperwork to a DeWalt GP).
