Crazy. Seriously, it looks like a frankensaw, but the proof is in the puddin. And it looks like it cuts really well. Congratulations. The beauty of building something workable is you will always know how to fix yours.

Thank ya’ll very much. I have to say I am proud of it.
Now, for my buddies, and the ones who just read all my ramblings, the ones who know me better probably are asking right now, “but William, all you done was reassemble a saw, take photos, and play with the saw. What else have you done today?”
Well, I don’t know about you guys, but when I finish a long, drawn out project such as this one, I like to change gears as soon as its done. I like to take a breather and whip out something quick and painless. So after getting my photos taken and pushing the saw over to where it will be stored when not being used, I made this.

That is a great build. I have been to Wandel’s website and it’s very informative.
Y’all did a great job on this.

An amazing accomplishment! But you knew this already. Just me trying to blow sunshine up your…...
The finish looks great! The wood blade guard looks much more at home than any metal one would have. I hope you tracked down the flying metal one though, just in case….....
See you in the “Stumpy Zone”!

An amazing accomplishment William. I have so enjoyed watching you build this. I wished I could have been around a little more to help. But you have done well. The housing is very nice with a sturdy finish. This saw should give you a lot of years of use. I know you are proud. And I am happy for you.

Love that powerplant. And you can still run something else off the SS quill end. Nice job William.
