i picked up a Allied 10” table saw. Looks j’just like a Delta.

It is setup for 220 volts. Does anyone have any experience with an Allied saw.

I ran it and it sounded really good. The owner was moving to Florida and selling things cheap so he didn’t have to move it. I need another saw here at the house so I don’t have to keep moving the portable saws back and forth. It needs a good cleaning and a new switch. So, I have myself a nice project to get this saw going. I have 220 in this new garage.

Any input is appreciated. It was too late tonight to grab some photos tonight. I’ll grab photos tomorrow.

-- I can see the cheese heads from here and it is great.

Not familiar with Allied. Pics should help.

Looks like a pretty typical 1980’s Taiwanese contractor saw made by Mao Shan….they made nearly identical saws under a bunch of names – Grizzly, PM, Jet, Omega, AFF, Ohio Forge, Mao Shan, etc. The fence isn’t great, but the motor is pretty stout… they’re heavy fairly solid saws. Put a good blade on it, and align it. Congrats.

Knotscott,
I believe you nailed it. It does say made in Taiwan and the motor has got guts. it just needs some TLC and if I find another fence I planned on replacing it. But, for $75 and as my spare saw this should work out great.
Thanks for you input.

Marty
