I have come to the realization that I will never be able to build a shop so a few tools need to go. First will be the table saw. It is a fully restored 1953 Oliver 232 that features an original 3hp 3ph motor. The saw has been completely stripped of all paint and rust. EVERY nut and bolt came off the machine and new sealed bearings installed. The main casting was wire brushed, smoothed with body filler, sanded, primed and coated with Sherwin Williams industrial paint. It should last another 50+ years. It currently has a 14” combo blade, needs sharpening, but will cut 8/4 maple with ease. The fence is an original type H micrometer and the saw comes with 1 miter gauge. Both the miter gauge and fence were missing when I purchased the saw. I have run the saw with a VFD and off a rotary phase converter and it runs very well. It will make a great addition to any shop. Asking $2200 OBO. I am willing to ship at buyers expense.

Drooling here,

I’ll give you a hundred now and send you 50 a month, what do you think?
