Most of this series saws were gray with a gray anodized face plate. This one was painted gold with a gold face plate, but I didn’t duplicate the paint color. It was refered to in Vintage Machines as “goldie”.
The saw still sits on it’s original stand which I cleaned and painted and I added all shiny new hardware and used some salvaged butcher block for the decks. I borrowed the rear adjustable axles and wheels from my lawn mower and connected them together for a retractable foot operated feature and added retractable wheel barrow handles to aid in mobility.
The motor was a 1/2 hp. but I added a new/rebuilt 1 hp. mill with a Diablo, an Ace arbor adaptor and a link belt.
The motor and saw may be bench mounted later so I made it easily removable, and the cart was wired and switched so I can mount any machine that may be needed. I still have to fab up a down-lock for the wheels and build a shroud over the belt.
It’s workin HWEET!! Thanx Pappy.
