BACKGROUND:
A fellow OWWMer, Chad Fernandez, ran across this saw and complementary jointer at a garage sale, in Marshall Michigan.
The combo did not sell, so Chad put me in contact with the seller.
I bought the combo, on 13Aug2006, at the seller's barn in Marshall Michigan (1-1/2hr drive).
He told me both machines came from his grandfather.
