Well, it’s up to $400 now, and will probably go for more before the auction ends. Unfortunately, advertising it here will drive more traffic to it and potentially bump it up even more. Serial number makes it a 1956 model, and it is wired for 120v, so it’s most likely the 1.5hp bullet motor offered that year in the catalog (#85-110). Appears to be in fairly good shape, but is missing the goose egg motor cover, miter gauge, blade tilt lock knob, at least a couple of end plugs on the fence guide tubes and the blade guard.

Cheers,
Brad

Opps, on the left tilt. Must have been thinking of something else, because my one before the current one is far newer than this and was a right tilt – the only choice.

Four hundred is starting to push the price limit for a saw like this, but, oh well. Could have just kept quiet, but that kind of defeats the purpose of this site and getting information out to those with whom I associate.

The things some people do to their Unis.

“Hummm, looks like a lock knob. Dont need that.”
“This goose egg is keeping all the saw dust in the cabinet. I bet I could grow roses in it.”

“This goose egg is keeping all the saw dust in the cabinet. I bet I could grow roses in it.”

LOL – but to be fair, the motor cover was an optional accessory that would have to be purchased separately. The stock single phase configuration was just the base Unisaw (34-451), 1.5hp motor (85-110) and toggle switch. Complete setup was known as catalog #34-421. It is entirely possible that the machine never had the motor cover at all… however, it does have the original dust door, which frequently goes missing, so that’s a plus!

Cheers,
Brad
