I’m new to this forum and in fact it’s my first woodworking forum ever. I’m coming to you I hopes of receiving help identifying a saw that my father brought back with him from a class that the Navy sent him to close to 20 years ago. In its current state it is functional but I’m not exactly sure it can live up to its full potential without being given quite a bit more TLC than what my Dad has already given it. I believe that it is the remnants of what used to be a powerful 10” tablesaw due to the way that the arbor mechanism raises and lowers in its current state it is again fully operational and it is also mechanically safe to cut wood with. What I mean by not living up to its potential though is that the arbor has on dual V-belt pulley. Well when he brought it home the saw had no motor as well as no base cabinet. My father constructed a base out of wood as many of you also have done the same I’m sure due to not being familiar with tablesaws he also constructed a mounting system of his own design that allows the motor to hang, rise, as well as lower as you move the arbor up and down. He put a single groove pulley on the motor meaning that it’s not going to run as well as it could with 2 belts attached. The actual mounting bracket is still in tact and attached to the back side of the arbor bracket. But I would really love seeing this saw brought back to its former glory if possible of course. All I can find as far as identification is some casting numbers on the bottom of the table top, under the right table extension, on the trunnions, and the motor mount bracket. Is there a way to ID This Saw using these casting numbers?
Here are the casting numbers as well as the location of where I found them
D-3017-4 Backside of the bracket for the Left-Tilt Hand wheel
D-3017-3 Underside of the Cast Table Top
D-3017-17 Underside of the Right Table Extension
F-3017-7 Motor mount bracket
C-3019-9 Front and Rear trunnions
Any help identifying this saw would be greatly appreciated. If it helps it appears to have a light bluish/ grayish coat of paint on the undercarriage.
Once again thanks
