Hello All,
I found a vintage Dewalt table saw model T140 for sale. It seems to be in decent shape from the photo, but yet have not seen it up close. I know it comes with a 2hp 110v motor and I believe this saw has a 3/4” arbor.
I believe it was made by Atlas for Dewalt. A similar Atlas model of 3110

Could you offer some advice or additional info on the quality of this saw. Is there any saw blade easily available at 3/4” can the arbor be retooled to a 5/8”. At $150 is this a good deal for solid 600lb cabinet saw.

Thanks H.

I have only seen a few of the Dewalt saws and they are built like a tank. As for the arbor you can have it machined to 5/8. Or, go to Forrest and have them punch a 3/4 hole. Another option would be get a 1” arbor and shim to 3/4”. $150 is a you SUCK price, go for it

MK, I will probably go for it, I already have a finely tuned Craftsman Contractor that is actually a great TS with the upgrades. The old Emerson made in USA. I do enjoy restoring older equipment, Although the new power tools are great, I still think the treasures are some of the old machines.

DeWalt badged Clausing saws during that period. I’ve
never used one but they are super solid from what
I’ve read.

3/4” arbor blades are not that uncommon and I would
sincerely advise you not to cut down the saw arbor
to save a few bucks having your blades opened up.

Loren, I never thought about the Blade being the better idea than changing the original equipment. I am waiting to hear back from the seller, so I can take a real good look at the unit. It does seem to good to be true for a real solid table saw. I did find one on Vintage machinery. com that gives the potential of a restoration.

Have your say...
