This saw is not mine, nor am I interested in buying. I just saw this (http://neworleans.craigslist.org/tls/3348560849.html) on New Orleans CL, and I am posting here in case some LJ in the area is interested. It’s advertised as a Moak Tilting Table Saw, and it was used in a commercial milling operation. Looks very heavy duty.

Looks horrible Don. I’m sure $700.00 would buy a more useful Taiwanese saw. Glad your not interested.

Those are shipbuilding saws for working heavy timbers. Gravity
holds the work tight to the fence when ripping bevels.

Moak built to US Gov specs and supplied much of the machinery
for naval yards and other gov. branches.

@andyboy—If the owner would take an air hose and blow off the sawdust, it would probably show a little better. It does look really heavy duty though.

@Loren—I always learn something from my fellow LJs. I did not know what the Moak tilting table saw was used for, but I knew from looking beyond the sawdust in the photos that it was for very serious wood working. Shipbuilding makes sense to me. Thanks for contributing to my education.
