Did not get quite as good a deal as Canadian Chips, but here is what mine looks like.

Needs to be rewired and belt replaced.

But it did have a nice blade choice. I have not seen one of these for a while. Thin Kerf blade with
extra thick center section for stiffness.

I had to pay $30 for this one, but it will have a special sled built for it, and will be used mainly to make
segments for bowl turning. I will clean it up, flip the saw on the stand so the fence bars will not take
up so much room, and if the saw works as intended, I may just eliminate the fence. Will be using the
last of my made in USA link belts from Harbor freight on this one and will be replacing that genuine
Delta switch with a paddle switch. This should keep me off street corners and out of trouble for at
least a week. Will be adding a 4” dust collection port to the saw and enclosing some of the motor
end opening.

Well worth the money Gus, it is always fun to refurbish an old machine giving it a second chance to be in a shop! Please post pics as you progress along.

Thanks for sharing
