It’s a rather versatile carpentry machine that can
crosscut cabinet panels using its sliding table feature
and operates as an inverted miter saw and rip saw
too. Bevels too. Very hard to find.

They are designed to be left outdoors through harsh
winters too. It’s the standard saw style in Norway
apparently. They make big ones too for industrial
applications and timber framing.

Thanks for the tip. Just picked it up this morning. Used to work for tool dealer is a tech years ago and we had a used and sold it. Never had a chance to play with one. It’s pretty small and I believe it takes a 240 mm blade with a 30 mm arbor. Have to admit it’s in really good shape for being about 25 years old.

Pictures, please!! Sounds interesting, but the listing is gone, and no mention of a brand name.

It’s Norsaw 805. Sold for $1300 twenty five years ago. For $200 I’m pretty satisfied. It’s excellent shape. Don’t believe it’s imported in the states anymore. It’s a saw that most people would never even know about. Very well designed and built. Had to drive 135 miles to get it. No one was really interested in it apparently as most people never heard of it.

I’m envious. I’ve wanted one for years.

Can you do crown mouldings on it or is the compound
crosscut restrictive for only narrow ones?

I believe I encountered one at an estate sale, in neglected
condition, many years ago. I had no idea what
I was looking at and it may have been 3 phase,
which would have intimidated me at the time.
They probably threw it in a dumpster.

It only takes a sawblade you can’t do anything more than that. If you could put a dado blade or a molding head cutter who would be the ultimate saw. I have two of the craftsman single knife molding heads, the ultimate moulding as it ’s easy to grind one to the profile instead three.

Thanks for the link! There’s a real advantage there, with the blade below the table until you make your cut. Just today, earlier, I was ripping some long stock, my saw takes an eternity to come to a stop, and I have a habit of not reaching near the blade ‘til it has stopped turning. Holding a ripped board 6 ft. long with the heel of my hand is not fun.

Great deal for the price, and you’ll forget the 135 miles soon enough. Congrats Rick! Tx, Loren!

What I meant was whether it can miter crown
mouldings wider that the protruding portion
of the saw blade by angling the fence on
the sliding table.

I’m unclear as to whether the sliding table
can be set up to that.

It was a Norsaw model 805.

Rick got it. Seller deleted the ad.
