I have that saw, wife bought it for me for Christmas of 2006 or 2005 I believe.

Gotta be careful of the trunions, they seem to be built out of pot aluminum or something that’s not very strong. If you’re going to be moving the saw at all, build or get a mobile base for it.

I’ve got the riser block for it and like the added functionality of the saw. If you do add a riser block seriously consider having a friend help you get the top half back on. I was able to do it myself but it would been soo much easier to have someone on hand.

The 3/4 HP motor doesn’t allow for speedy resawing but if you take your time it’ll make its way through the cut eventually.
