This is a 1983 Powermatic 66 I picked up at an auction. Got home and found out it had a 3 phase motor so I bought a new 3 horse motor which put my total price for the saw at $650.00. It had been painted gray so I refinished it and built an extension table and put cabinets under them. The cabinets are made of Ash and the drawers are 22 inches full extension pull outs. The right side is 46 inches from one side to the other. On the side I keep some jigs for the table saw.Left side has a door with 4 pull out drawers.

Got you beat on the saw price but this setup is utter luxury !!!
You still got a great buy even with having to buy a motor .
Great job on the restore and cabinets .
Now you need a right angle drive to get the tilt wheel out of that tight space .

Dennie,

Two questions; 1) did you have to pick up the saw and provide insurance to the auctioneer? Some autions I have seen, or all, require a $1,000,000 insurance policy to hold the auction and seller harmless or you can’t go in and get the saw. A few have provided loading at extra cost, but few. Lucky buy even with the motor. Beautiful setup, good workmanship and organization. Too neat and clean. No sawdust to speak of. 2) Where’s the stop switch?

Awesome use of space –
I don;t have that big a show and keep my unisaw on a mobile base – but love the storage, especially that it is available on all sides

What a nice set up. Tons of storage and a great work area. What type of fence is that? I don’t think the STOP is big enough… LOL Great lookingshop!

Steve, no I didn’t have to provide insurance. Had some buddies with me and we loaded it up on a trailer. As for the sawdust I cleaned my shop for two days cause I was having a couple guys over to make toys for kids,so I figured then would be a great time for pictures. the stop switch came with it but man what a great switch as I run my wood through the end I can just bump it with my knee and cut it off it’s great.
