Better hurry up and get it inside before it rains. Kidding aside, that will be a very nice saw when you get it cleaned and repaired if needed. Probably the last one you’ll ever need.

This miter gauge came with it, but it looks to go with a bigger table saw, it doesnt fit the slots. Does any of you know what it goes to?

If you can take the rail for the miter off,I think you can buy new rails that would fit your slot.

Oh nice! I may end up just restoring it as well, and hanging it on the side of the saw. May come in handy if I rnd up with a bigger table saw, but after having this one, I couldnt imagine needing a bigger saw.

If anyone is wondering… He sold it prior to restore.

Funny I saw the same saw, or one just like it for sale here the other day, wants 700.00 for it. No fence, miter gage, and the covers are missing. I’d like to have it to restore, but I don’t want to put that much money in it on the front end.

Haha I did sell it, but the guy I sold it to is trading it back to me for a 10” powermatic. So I will now have the chance to restore it completely now. I just have 12 other machines to work on firsr.
