A buddy of mine gave me this saw cuz he bought a brand new Jet for about $1k. He didn’t want this one so I went over his house and he showed it to me. Yup, it was old and heavy like he said but and I couldn’t wait to take it home to try it out. I own a Hitachi Job site saw and it work good for the price but this old one works better. It has a pulley and the motor starts and stops pretty quick. I need to update the vac port but other than that it is a nice find for free.

I am pretty sure it won’t take you long to find that this is a much better saw than the Hitachi, but I like them old.

Sweet score mate! give it a bit of a service and a lick of polish and i,m sure you,ll get plenty more years out of it. Enjoy.

The more I use this saw, the more and more I like it and am hoping to find one like it but maybe bigger. They don’t build them like this anymore.
