Finally, she rides on her original universal frame stand and everything has been cleaned and painted with all new hardware. Retractable lawn mower wheels and retractable wheel barrow handles have been added to aid transport and new/salvaged decks were added.

The 1/2 hp. motor was replaced with a new/rebuilt 1hp. mill with a Diablo, an arbor adaptor, and a new link belt, and is wired for easy removal. [I may bench mount the saw at a later date]. The cart is wired and ”switched” to accomodate what ever machine is required at the time.

I still hafta build some extensions [with some of the same butcher block] and a wheel down-lock, and I really need some ideas for the wheel down-lock


if any body has some suggestions!!!!!

Excellent restoration. If you were to turn the saw 90° on the base, you might not need to lock the wheels.

Thanx Knotscot, in the photo the wheelz are in the retracted position. I used the adjustable mechanism and axels from the mower and tied them together with a rod that is pushed down with my foot. The geometry is just right that they stay down 95% of the time

when in transit but they do give on occasion.
