The blade clamp set up is like my Hegner. Is it a brushed motor or an induction motor?

Jim, thank you for your help
I don’t know, but it is a Fasco No 7164-1252 type V64.
Thanks

That definitely looks like an RBI Hawk did you try looking under the table or under the saw table?

Looks mighty similar to the one in this thread http://lumberjocks.com/topics/29175 except for yours having a different shaped table.

That does look a lot like an RBI hawk, the US flag on the sticker even looks like several pictures I’ve seen online.

RBI Hawk is the brand that comes to mind when I look at your saw—that brand has a solid reputation but I do not think it is still manufactured.

Hawks are still being manufactured by Bushton industries. It does look like an older Hawk although I have never seen a blue one.

It looks like the RBI. Mine has some of the same parts and even the same Flag decal in the same place. I had not seen a Blue Hawk as all I have seen are Red.

Good saw.

Have your say...
