This is on Craigs List in Buffalo NY . Looks like a wooden sliding table with brass adjustment hardware. Maybe it should be in a museum – seems like a good deal for $125. -Jack

this is a handmade oak table saw….. i purchased this saw many many many years ago from a retired boat maker. it has a 7” blade and also a rip fence and angle guides all handmade with brass adjustment levers…. the table top measures 27 1/2 inches wide x 45 1/2 ” long and 35 1/2” high….this should probly be in a museum.

Here’s an edited version of the guys ad and two more pics. Is that rift-sawn oak?

I sent an email to The Buffalo Maritime Center.

Have your say...
