Great job on the rehab.
A few Q’s:Did you need to upgrade/replace any hardware/bearings? (How difficult)Does using non-oem paint diminish any resale value?How accurate/easy to use is the fence?How accurate/easy to adjust is the blade/height?
I recently was given a very similar (if not the same) saw. I plan on rehabing it in the future. I just Hope I can make it half as good as your effort
Again, nice job.

DIYaholic,The bearings seem to be fine, no wobbles. There is one broke piece broken that holds the table at 90, but i was able to tighten it down, but couldn’t us the table at a angle. The blade/height adjustment works smoothly.

Wow, that’s neat. I found one almost exactly like that a couple years ago at a yard sale. I have yet to restore it, maybe someday. I love to see old tools brought back to life.

A thing of beauty to one probably as old as your saw – but probably not in as good shape.

Great rehab! What did you use to clean up the table? It looks like new.
Is this one that you tilt table instead of the blade?
Thanks for sharing.
