I picked this saw up from a free dot com web site, the guy must have been cleaning out a barn. It had the base that is still on it, I just added the shoot to conect it to a vac system, I ran a new designated 220v,
20 amp line from the breaker panel, a new cord, a Grizzly padel switch and a rebuilt 1 hp 1750 rpm motor. It did have a miter gage, but I think the guy threw out the rip fence not knowing what it was. I can’t find a fence that I can afford so I am using a straight edge clamp, I added a 3/4×3/4 angle to the near end to make it more like a T square ( it aint perfect but it helps ), I also cemented 80 grit emery cloth to the front and back edge of the table ( you can see it in the closeup picture of the switch. I picked up a piece of aluminum and made a zero clearance plate for cutting small pieces ( perfect for my last job, making doll bunk beds ), and this saw was for a 8” blade but a 10” fits fine so I put a 10” x 60 tooth blade on it. I am looking for a shop vac that I can fit to a 30 gal. trash can.
