Comments:
Purchased this saw at an auction for less than $100, mostly because I had never seen one in the wild before. I was lucky enough to find fence stop and miter accessories in other lots of the auction and reunite them with the saw before it was sold.

Although the crucial bits were there, it was not in the best condition, and was missing the motor and the motor mount. That, along with the arbor/blade issue resulted in the saw being back-burnered for 3 years.

I seriously considered passing it on but ran out of other machines to restore and took on the challenge.
Now its my go-to saw for crosscuts, still dead on accurate.
