Topic tags/keywords: question

The guy that sharpens my blades has two saws.

One is a 1950’s Delta cabinet saw and it is the Jr. version. It runs on 110 and comes with 8” blades, dado head set, sanding disc, extra table inserts, molding head and cutters. It is all cast iron and is closed in. I never knew there was such a thing?

The other saw is a 705 Rockwell 10” cabinet saw. It has a 3hp motor, runs on 220 and has a magnetic starter switch. It comes with 3 carbide blades, fence and miter guage. I think he told me they both are on mobile bases.

He wants to sell either one but not both for $500. I do not know if that is a good deal or not. They are both in good running order. He does not want to mess around shipping it. He does have a front end loader to load it on a truck. It is located in south eastern Iowa.

Too bad my shop is so small or I would think about buying the little one. On second thought maybe not. I don’t know if my wifes heart could take it!

God Bless

A extra table saw is always nice.

If you get one, pick the heavier one. Also which one has the better fence….
