That saw is going to be great when you get it going.
Think of all the cool projects you are going to be making with it.
Can’t wait to see it all done!

Looks like a good deal because it has the mounting brackets and will fit onto your saw with minimal hassle. Do you have the correct voltage/amps to run it?

Fire it up and let it rip. Should be a great saw.

Just saw your blog BWW. Cool colour . . . almost like those custom Powermatic paint jobs.

Are you gonna add some flames to make it extra cool? :-D

Where did you pick up the saw?

It was a gift! I am not sure about the flames.

Have your say...
