Retiree from local School......note the "institutional gray".
Saw is extremely clean and mostly complete for age. In overall excellent shape and working order.
Missing Work Light and original switch panel for light, replaced with aluminum panel
(wire sticking out).
Single speed Saw, appears to be original setup as such. Covers on both motor sides eliminate possibility of multi-groove pulley. Belt slot in housing is to narrow for
multi-groove or pulley system.
Saw is 3ph, run by 3/4hp Driver Series Motor.
Simplest method to convert to variable speed would be via a VFD.....and quite cheap.
