I placed a want ad on CL and within a few days I had a gettlemen from Baytown TX responded. He had 2 of these saws in his garage. He said they came from a warehouse that his friend bought. His friend didn't want them, so it was sold to him. He picked the one that was in better shape and restored it with parts from the second one. Suprisingly the saw that I ended up with is fairly complete. The motor does not work, but may be possible to fix. The table is badly rusted. I don't know of any shops around my area that could blanchard grind this table. Electrolysis may be the answer for this one. Everything else will be sanded off and repainted. Here are some before photos. I'll post more pics after the restoration.
