Charles, you have a bargain here. For about $400 you have a quality saw that will give you years of service.

Nice job.

Hi Charles. You are a better man than I, rebuilding that wonderful piece of machinery. I’ll bet you felt great and had a big smile the first time you heard the motor kick in. I listened/watched the short clip you posted and it sounds great to me. Great job.

Thanks for the update with all the pics and video! While I was working in my shop the other day, the thought crossed my mind,”I wonder if Charles got his saw running yet?”

This is great to see. Have you installed the fence yet?

I am sure that you will get many years of service out of this machine. It will make woodworking so much easier.
