Got this machine from Josh Johns (indyanajohns) in Seattle. He took good care of it, but the motor end bell was broken by the shipper on its way to me. Thanks to Richard for helping me braze it back into service.

I love the saw because the body is cast iron. The trunion brackets are mounted into the body like a cabinet saw, but the motor hangs off the back like a contractor's saw. The blade has a shroud with a dust chute which I took advantage of by building a slot into the bottom of the saw that the chute rides in as the blade adjusts the angle. Because of the trunion and the dust "collection," I consider this an early hybrid.

It's powered by a 1HP, R/I motor.

The saw came with the table extensions which in addition to the wings, includes a front extension which brings the front of the saw way out. It borders on odd looking, but it's nice to have the extra length in the miter slot.

I’m pretty sure it’s a 1939 (or later), because the elevation and tilt gears were covered with a sheet metal guard which the Sears catalog sells as “new for 1939.”

It was a saw in good condition, so the restore was straight forward. A little time under the wire wheel, time under the buffing wheel, some paint here and there, and a big jar of elbow grease

The base is made from MDF, and by the time I figured it all out, it ended up weighing a ton (only feels that way when I move it).
