This weekend I decided to strip the Powermatic 66 and the 2 Beisemeyer fence systems and prime and paint them. I was hoping to keep the stripes on the saw, but the decals were tool badly damaged and I do not have the time to paint new ones on. I also was not able to match the original color, but I came “close”. (I keep telling myself, “It is a saw, not your 65 Mustang,”)
I still need to finish up some of the paint on the edges of the top, mount the fence rails, attach the starter controls, polish the top, and then of course—get everything perfectly square and parallel.
I still have not painted the rectangular tube that the fence slides on. I sanded it down and polished it up that it almost looks like chrome.
