I’m not having much luck selling the table saw, I may just end up keeping it, so my next step would be to figure out what is the best way to mount my router to this so that I don’t have to have a extra bench for just a router table.

Again here is a pic of what I have.

What is the fence that you have, most seem to mount tables to the bench rails. If that is not an option you could always build a torsion box, remove one of the side tables and mount to the saw.

The bench in front of the saw attaches to the saw correct? Why not put it in there. To make it pretty easy all you would need is to buy a router plate and a template if you don’t feel comfortable cutting the holes for the plate yourself.

Start with these and you should be fine.

I really cannot understand why it is not selling? I would say that is a really nice saw, with nice big cast iron handwheels icorporated in it’s design .Which is always a high consideration on my list.I hate flimsy little three or four inch plastic handles.Your saw is IMHO a beauty I would have loved a saw like that when I was younger.

No one wants a 3 phase motor, and yes that table bolts on the right side, I thought I could do it there, but wasn’t sure exactly. So if I get a plate that I can mount the motor on, would I be able to have a fence that goes into the unisaw fence?

How much did you offer?

On here 500, craigslist I tried a bit more, people alwYs like to negotiate down, and I have had only one offer at 250 because it is 3 phase, and everyone else says they don’t want to mess with 3 phase

I saw a post in the thread where you bought the saw that the motor might keep the blade from tilting to 45 degrees. Do you find that to be the case?

I would say if you want to sell it keep the faith, someone who knows what that saw is worth is going to pay $500. I would join owwm and put it on the BOYD section. I in all honesty would pay what your asking in a heartbeat if I needed a saw. I’d be getting a steal too.

I agree David, and i’m only 150 miles from Indy. I’m not sure i want to go back to a right tilt (if i’m remembering that correctly) as i’ve really come to like my left tilt saw. With an unheated shop and no space left—i’m not sure i could do it anyway. But i’d like to!!

Did you try the BOYD forum over at vintage tools? 2nd you could consider putting a vfd on it and selling it that way. Nice saw worth every bit of 500.

I don’t have a problem putting the VFD on it to sell it, but that would mean I would have to sell it for 700 to make up for the VFD.
