I also own one and they were 3 HP normally, but I upgraded to the 5 HP model with the saw attachment. Belsaw is still in business without the Foley name and they no longer do the locksmith and tool sharpening products. I bought a new set of blades 2 years ago and they were $55.00 then. The saw blade is an 11/8” arbor and when I got mine carbide was not a choice but mine is 25 years old and I have not replaced the blade and don’t use that feather. Use the planner several times a week and it walks through Pecan (very hard like Hickory of which it is in the family). Yes, it came with 3 sets of moulding cutters and infeed guides but outfeed guides are extra. It needs a 3/4” table riser for moulding, so he may have made one for it and will throw it in as well as the out feed guides. The owner’s Manual is available on line. Their current model is now a 15” machine v.s. the 121/4” of yesteryear.

A strong great machine. A little tedious to set the infeed and out feed rollers for smooth operation, but once set they stay put. The owner’s manual provides the near perfect settings.
