I tinkered with our PM65 today and gave it a strip down and new primer and paint job. Thought I would post some pics. If I do the restore I will be replacing the motor, installing a Bies fence, new magnetic switch, arbor bearings, pulley and belts. I currently have the table saw on CL ‘as is’ so another new owner might take the saw to the new condition I envision for it.

Why I would not finish off the restoration myself, because we already have 3 other saws we love and I am currently buying a bunch of C purlin, R panel and I beam to weather in our new shop and so money will be scarce.

I do have a potential buyer who is interested. I gave him a list of items needed for full restoration. He has shown interest in buying one of our other 3 table saws that as they are newer saws and they are under power and in very good condition with no needs. So if the buyer ends up choosing one of our 3 active table saws, I will end up using the money from that sale to finish off the Powermatic.

Personally I favor the Powermatic. I seem to have a thing for the older Powermatic saws. I also love that this PM65 is left tilt. I also love the hand crank wheels as they are polished chrome.

That looks great! How’d you do the paint job?

It was very simple, did not even take that long. I stripped it down to bare metal using my grinding wheel. Then using simple Rustoleum spray cans. Primed it first and then top coated it using a John Deere Green. Figured if it is good enough for good ol John Deere then my PM 65 would look great.

Thanks for the comment.
