It’s much like an old Jet, and several other older Taiwanese contractor saws. Fence isn’t great, but if it runs, it’s got some potential. The parts are worth more than $100 IMO. I’d be willing to make an offer.

The fence looks just like the fence I had on an old Boice-Crane table saw 25 years ago. If it’s a BC, even if the motor doesn’t work, it’s worth $100. Put a better fence on it. The motor should be at least 1.5hp or bigger.

Aside from the base it looks identical to the Rockwell contractor saw. Same stamped wings, same Jetlock fence etc.
It’s better IMO than a new benchtop, but not a hybrid.

Looks like a knock off Delta contractor saw. I’m not familiar with it.

I don’t know if those are being imported anymore, but
they were imported to the states for many years and
badged, eg, Dayton.

It’s probably based on the old Rockwell design.
