I’m not sure if this is the appropriate forum, but i saw this CL ad today. I thought it was cool enough to share. I havent seen a saw that badass before.

Oliver 260D Table Saw Completely Restored/Finished in 2013. Used very little, virtually brand new. This saw was purchased from Oliver by the US Mint in San Francisco in 1944. I have the original sale receipt from Oliver. This features two 5HP 3 Phase motors with a 16 inch rip blade on one and a 16 inch crosscut on the other.

It is a very solid saw, but a lot of folks don’t like them because the entire table tilts to make a mitered cut which can have safety issues from kickback.

Have your say...
