My boss at work decided to get rid of this saw friday. He gave it to a friend of mine, who was going to scrap it, and told me about it. I almost hit the floor when he said he was going to scrap it. He asked me if I wanted it, I said ahhh yahhh! This is a startrite 24-t-10 – 24” throat and 10” height of cut. It was set up for three phase so I had to change out the motor and switch. The tires were also shot so I purchased some urethane ones, found some at peachtree woodworking on clearence. Not a bad saw for a $300 investment.

But, nevertheless, a great acquisition!

Awesome saw! I’m very curious about your motor swap. I need to do the same thing on my saw. I’d like to get a big 240V Baldor but I’m not terribly experienced in motor works.
