Here’s another CL gem. Originally listed for $300 (with riser kit installed), I talked the guy down to $150 because it was obvious the lower wheel’s bearings were shot and the motor ran very rough. The table was very rusted and the rubber tires were cracked. I brought it home, cleaned it up and it was evident that this thing had seen very little use in its life.
So now the rebuild begins. I pretty much did a full rebuild, replacing all bearings, and fixing all balance issues. I didn’t take pictures through the process (sorry!) but I’ll include part information since I haven’t found this list elsewhere (minus the part lists which don’t include descriptions). I included links to the products, but the descriptions will allow you to source the parts from where you choose.

The only things I have left now are adding a paddle-style on/off switch and putting a brush on the lower wheel. To test performance, I just finished resawing about 3’ of 12” oak without an issue. The dust collection change works excellent and with all of the bearing work, this thing runs like a top. Total investment – about $285 in rebuild/upgrades plus $150 for the saw for a total of about $435. Cheers!!
