Picked up a 5HP Powermatic 66 and a Rockwell Unisaw (with vintage Biesemeyer fences) last weekend. I am keeping the Powermatic and will be restoring it.


Powermatic 66 (with a 65 Mustang)

I stripped the 66 down and carried the components down into my basement. I was a pain-in-the-... getting the cabinet down. Luckily I have a exterior cement staircase and a good hand truck.

The Powermatic has what looks like a fairly new 3 phase Baldor motor in it. It cant be more than a year old. I am looking to replace it with a single phase motor.
