I’m currently using a highly added-to Craftsman 100, 3/4 hp. But it is a pain to keep the trunnions adjusted correctly. I have the little PALS setup, but it’s just not doing the job. It will need readjusting at least every 8 to 10 hours of run time, which might be 3 to 4 weeks (until I retire at the end of Sept. !)
I’ve found a Rockwell Unisaw, model# unknown but serial number was given to me as 1B8811. I can’t find a listing for that type digit on http://www.owwm.org/ It has the Rockwell “peace sign” emblem.
Anyway, the guy wants $750 which seems kinda high. But it is 3 hp single phase 220v. I haven’t dickered with him yet. And can’t find a listing of what years this saw used the Jet Lock style fence. The picture shows a long fence rail plus rail extensions taped to them ? No guards or motor cover.
Can ya’ll help me with a price guidance. I plan on taking a dial indicator and checking the arbor. Any other weaknesses that should be checked out?
It’s also a right-tilt, which I’m (maybe needlessly?) worried about.
Thanks for the help.
