Just bought my first real table saw. I got a great deal on it, at least I think. I paid $700 for it. Based on the sn it appears to be either a 2000 or 2007 model and has a 3 ph 5hp motor. I plan on cleaning it up and hopefully getting it going after the new year. I’ll follow up with updated pics once I get it cleaned up.

congrats on the buy. really a gloatable deal. while i’m no fan offull priced newer jet/powermatic tools, at that price, it’s well worth it, even after you add a VFD, like this poster did over @ SMC:

and here’s a link to the VFD i believe that postger used in his conversion:
