It’s a right tilt unisaw with the unifence maybe 10 to 15 years old just guessing mine is a 2002 and has the black cranks. A very good saw 53 in rip capacity and weighs around 450. Mine is 3HP some are 5HP either is OK but my 3
HP has more than enough power to rip 2 in oak all day. If you ever use a saw like that you will never want those cheap craftsmans. Good luck Russ

Looks like there may be a capacitor on the motor, which
means single phase. Hard to tell though from a picture
like that.

It’s a school district auction so it probably came out of a shop classroom. I don’t know if high school shop classes use 3 phase machines or not.

Probably worth verifying if you don’t want to risk having to swap the motor. It would have to be a screaming deal to get me interested in a right tilt saw with no riving knife.

I know my Junior High Shop class had all three phase equipment, and the Jointer I own came out of a high school shop and it originally had a three phase motor in it, so definitely check first before bidding. Getting to to actually cut something might cost few hundred more dollars if it is 3 phase and your not set up for it. But for the right price might be worth swapping a motor out. Despite what some people may say it will run just fine on 2hp motor or even less. The bigger motors make the saws cut faster especially once a blade starts to dull a bit, but not appreciably better.

I never figured out if it was a 3 phase or not but It ended up selling for $550
