Mom has a DeWalt radial arm saw. I need some help with it since I don’t know much about them. Here is what I do know. Grandpa bought it new and it still works. The cord has been in the sun, so it is frail. There were all sorts of pamphlets with it. On one of them he wrote: Model MBF, Serial #195645, H.P. .75, Frame 156. There is another pamphlet that says Copyright 1954. I don’t have it here with me at the moment but I can get a picture of it next time I am over there. If someone has any other information that might be useful to me that would be great.

This is the spiral information book that he had all the papers in.

This is a pamphlet with the store name stamped on it. This is the one he wrote the information down on.

This is the inside of that pamphlet. I think it’s the one on the right.
One page flyer. There is more on the back.

Front of 4 page fold out AMF Dewalt Power Shop Workbench Plan. Stamped with store name.

Back of 4 page fold out. Says Copyright 1954.

One side of 4 page fold out.

Other side of 4 page fold out.

I read another post by NBeener. He said to look at The closest thing I found on there was the 07/01/2010 post by Terry Borrelli. MBF 215 9” 1956 196520. Am I getting close? Mom wants this out of her garage but wants to know more info on it.
Thanks Mike and Anna

I forgot to mention…the saw does not say Black and Decker on it, it says DeWalt. I went over there today and got some actual pics of it. Will be posting them later tonight. Also, it has a key to turn it on.

A number of folks have restored them. You might try searching the site and then asking some of the folks that have posted restores.
