Last month I had to say goodbye to my restored 1960’s Powermatic model 66 table saw. It was my dream saw with a Excalibur sliding table, as the old Rush song said from a better thanish time. I spent a lot of time on putting this old saw back to work. I bolted it to the floor, and tried to “dust proof” it. As I was sitting in my shop looking at all of the things I planned on selling to clear out my shelves and make some room. The Excalibur sliding table was huge!!! and took a lot of floor space, I found it to be a great place to store stuff. I thought I would put the saw in the classifieds for a higher price than all of the other table saws, much higher than it cost me. One day later a man who happen to be a retired wood shop teach from a local college called and ask if I still had the saw, when I told him I did, he in a relieved voice told me not to sell it!! He wanted it and would be driving from the next state over to get it. I under priced it I thought what had I done??? My saw was sold. The guy told me that he only used Powermatic tools and had been looking for this model for quite some time and was very excited, mine looked almost new and was loaded with all kinds of neat toys
My saw is gone now and I miss the heck out of it. Morel of the story is, be careful what you ask for you just might get it.
P.S. My wife told me I can buy a new Saw Stop Table saw. Man I love her!!
