Magna was the name of the company who originally made Shopsmith. The 710 is listed as a 9” saw… are your sure yours is a 10”? I can’t imagine why they would have two size saws with the same model number. Click on the link above to go to the VM site for more info.

Cheers,
Brad

Sounds like a 10” fer sure… the model number sure indicates it. I was just going on what someone had listed it over at the site I linked to above, so that person could have been mistaken. I dunno.

Cheers,
Brad

All I know about it is what I stumbled into on the Vintagemachinery.org website:

Description/Model: Magna Model 710 9” Table saw

Date of Manufacturer: 1959

this magna looks just like the one from VM.someone put a 1 1/2 horse craftsman on it,and so far seems like a real sweet saw.the fence is heavy duty and spot on.the miter gauge leaves a little to be desired,a pistol grip like shopsmith

The 710 is a great saw. I have one that I have restored to nice working condition. It was originally a 9” saw but the throat and trunion easily accommodate a 10” blade and the 3/4 HP motor has no problem with the larger blades. I recently acquired a second saw from a neighbor for parts and now have a spare working motor, trunion/arbor and rip fence along with the original stand and case. The trunion/arbor are one of the simplest and durable designs I have seen.

Thanks for the response. I’ve got three myself.Two with 1 1/2 hp motors and the other for either parts or resto ..One is set up with a dado and the other for rip. Tho I’ve been thinking of selling and just using band saw,routers,and planer to save space(10×20 shop).Great saws and a workable fence. Have a great day,
