Apparently one of the first models of bench saws by Atlas – Model 3001, and probably made sometime in the late 40’s.

Here is a copy of the brochure for the saw…

While the older saws tended to be overbuilt, the designs weren’t always as elegant as those we see today….especially the fences. It’s an interesting novelty but I doubt it’s worth more than $200 to most folks, unless it’s something someone is specifically looking for. It could realistically fetch much less on Craigslist.
