I’m actually a little sad to post this, but I don’t have to room to hang onto this now that I have my Walker Turner 2221 saw.
This is a great saw and really started me on the right path in woodworking. Take all the negative comments about contractor saws and throw them out the window, none of them apply here.
The 1 1/2” HP motor will handle an 8” Dado stack, and full kerf blades. Will rip 2.5” thick walnut blanks without blinking. I also rip maple and other easy to burn woods with a combo blade and no burning. This is simply a great saw.
Sits on the original flare foot stand with pop up casters ( AKA Mobile Base ) Dust collection adaptor installed onto the base of the saw.
Comes with Delta T2 Fence, original miter gauge, and upgraded Delta splitter (easy tool less removal/install) , plus the original splitter/guard and whatever I find laying around that might help you get to using the saw.
I also have the original insert and a handful of 1/2” plywood Zero Clearance Insert blanks.
Pulleys where upgraded to machined steel and I have put a Link Belt on it, basically a 60 dollar upgrade item that many people use.
I have a few extra carbide blades to throw in, One is an older Freud finish blade.
I also have the Original manual, and spare parts baggie.
I’m in North West Indiana right by south Chicago area, but will consider deliveries/meeting 1/2 way with reasonable distances and time frames (for example, asking me to drive to the north end in the middle of rush hour is out, but a Sunday morning drive is fine).
