Quick update = Christmas and all that comes with it put a damper on shop activity this past week. With that comes all the storage bins, etc. laying around, under, etc the saw and shop – so will get some good present photos during the next week. I did however find a picture of what this saw looked like brand new in 1986 only to find it is not the same, motor on mine mounts low but to the rear of stationary stand, while photos I find always show motor mounted directly underneath the saw, with the stand having a cut out for the belt to travel. Going to call Grizzly tech again and see what I can find out.
But this made me realize that 1986 was the same year I graduated High School, so even more to push this project – I may not be as pretty as a new graduate today either – but hopefully like this Saw, we earned our rust and grays and still can go pretty darn good! LOL.
SO until next time. Hope you enjoyed/enjoying your Christmas and looking forward to a New Year of opportunities.
