Topic tags/keywords: table saw id help question tablesaw

Hello,

I recently discovered LumberJocks while researching table saws. Let me start by saying thank you for all the great information on this forum. I have learned a lot. What a great resource. I hope to be a positive contributor in the future.

In the meantime, I need some help identifying a saw that is going to be at an estate sale tomorrow (11/28/2015). The sale is about 45 minutes from me and I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth the drive.

Here’s the saw:

This pic is not labeled but I think this is the motor to the saw:

What do you think? Worth the drive? I have no idea what they are asking. I’ll deal with that when I get there. I’m trying to figure out the make/model and if it’s even worth the drive. Thanks for looking and hopefully someone can help.

Otto

The fence looks like a Delta, and the blade guard is also similar to Delta’s older ones, but I have
never seen table extensions like that on a Delta. The taiwan motor indicates it might be a Delta
clone of some type. Too bad they did not put a better front view picture on. The smaller print
to the right of “10” TABLE SAW” would probably indentify it.

Thanks for the reply.

I’m torn.

If this were a cabinet saw it might be worth the trip. But being a hybrid with Taiwanese motor, unknown price and unknown maker, I may have to pass on this one.

Any other thoughts?

Yeah, what if everybody else who is looking at this online thinks the same thing? You just MIGHT be the only one bidding on it. So if you DONT GO, then find out later that some lucky schlub bought it for TEN BUCKS because nobody else was bidding… you’ll be pissed, right?

If you have the time to spare, I’d rethink “not going”

It’s almost certainly out of the Mao Shan factory in Taiwan, from roughly the late 80’s to late 90’s. They offered those saws under several brands including Jet, Grizzly, PM, Allied, Bridgewood, Woodtek, Omega, Ohio Forge, AFF, Mao Shan, and others. They’re reasonably well built with stout motors, but most of those stock fences are marginal. $100 would a fair price IMO if it runs.
