Can anyone identify what model this saw is? I’m wondering about how old and if it is a decent one worth fixing up, the seller hasn’t responded to me yet. Since the writing on the front is in english and spanish I’m guessing its a newer, non-american made model

Looks like an older version of the 36-600.

universal motor??? no splitter, a so-so fence…maybe for $150-200 I would consider it.

I would avoid direct drive or motorized saws. A contractor type saw is quieter and more dependable. If you look at it ,check the arbor flange-behind the blade. My Rockwell had left hand threads and had been destroyed by over tightening. – Jack

Jack…I think most saws are left-threaded. rotation of the blade thing will tend to tighten as opposed to the other way around (that would be a bad thing). And you are right…”snug” on the wrenches, no more.

Have your say...
