I'd make this FTGH, but I paid $150 for it and have about $80 invested in the mobile base (fabricated at the last club mobile base build), so I figure it's gotta be worth a few sawbucks. I will entertain offers (I really need this gone), but really - $50 is too much? :roll:

This was in some kind of metal fabrication operation before I bought it from a resale shop. It was filthy with metal shavings and oil. I completely disassembled and cleaned everything in preparation for doing a complete restoration. It's been in the corner of my garage for a few years and I realize that I've lost my enthusiasm for the project, which is a shame since it is a beautiful saw when it's all cleaned up.

You can see some completed machines here, here and here. This does have the enclosed base that you see in the pics. I didn't want to drag the base out into the light, so you can see it below back in the rat-hole corner of my garage.

A few notes:

  • Someone did a really nice job of converting the upper guides to use a Delta guide setup. Unfortunately, they just took the lower guide off and apparently were using it that way. As you can see in the Vintage Machinery links above, it would be pretty simple to cobble up a set of lower guides
  • The upper wheel is crowned, which is nice as you don't have to crown your tires
  • You'll need to fabricate a belt guard (again, reference the Vintage Machinery links above), as the original is MIA
  • The motor is a Baldor 3/4hp 110v 1725 RPM
  • I could not figure out how to get the drive shaft out of the drive wheel. Tried to press it out using Dave R's hydraulic press with no luck. However, the bearings seem to be just fine, so I was going to re-assemble with the original lower drive bearings. In the process of trying to press out the shaft, the lower wheel was bent just a tad, so you'll need to do a little levering with the shaft held in a vise to true it up again, but shouldn't be a problem

Sometimes the poor things just need a new home. I may have more on the way tomorrow too. It's too much fun it seems.
