Another Craigslist find.

I purchased this from a gentleman outside of Lebanon, IN (about 20 minute drive NW of Indianapolis) in July of 2008. According to him, he purchased it 12 years prior sans fence & rails. He added a set of rails and fence that appear to be from a 60's era UNISAW. He machined spacers to hold the rails far enough off the back of the table so the longer fence would fit. There's hardly a speck of rust on this thing. It's been very well cared for, motor is solid, trunnions look good, table doesn't have an obvious crown or dip (haven't taken the micrometer to it yet). Came without a miter gauge, has the original cast v-belt pulleys. I have no plans to replace those at this time - but a link-belt is in the near future. The micro-adjustment knob is missing from the fence, the table insert is bent a bit. I'll probably order a new knob. I will make several new inserts. I'm not going to do much of anything to this machine beyond -use- it.

For my small limited-space shop (read two-car modern, cramped garage) this was a heck of a find.
