ok so ive been thinking about a differnt table saw for like 5 years and today it it happened so heres what i was working with
now shes been a good saw and i’ve been using her for 10 years but its basically a fancy bench top modle to look like a cotractors saw. It’s direct drive and frankly has seen better days.
on to my craigs list find
now this little beast was purchased from a school who decided that having a table saw was too much of a liablity it’s an older saw so im guessing american made not sure on the age but just the saw took 4 guys to load in my pick up. the total work surface is 52” and has 41” of rip capacity. i was also very impressed with what the schools electrican had dun with the mag switch on this bad boy the origanal had gone bad so he replaced it with one that looks like it could star a 747. it 3 HP has all the extras i would have put on their myself. so i think ill be happy with it, once i get power to it I’ll let you now if it passes the nickle test.
i do how ever have one question how much tension should thier be on the belts. I’ve never owned a belt driven saw so not sure should i thighten like a car.
