Found this saw at an estate sale in Atlanta, GA. It appears to be in fairly decent shape with only minor rust on the bottom and came with a Shop Fox mobile base. Inside the machine is rust free. It is missing the brake and brake bracket, the door latches, blade guard, table insert and the star knobs or similar for the table...all pretty minor stuff. It needs new tires and motor bearings. The other bearings, blade guides, table, table support, etc are in good shape.

Also, can anyone advise on the size and make of the motor. It is missing its motor tag. I've figured out that it is a six wire, 110/220 motor, currently wired for 220 (2,3,5-taped), 1-hot, (4,8-hot). Whoever replaced the capacitor in the past installed it with the box. The box says Baldor. Too bad they did not notice the zerk fittings and give the motor bearings a dose of grease. They looked like they were never lubed after leaving the factory.
