You got a lot of spooky cries but it is not as dramatic as heard.Cut off the rusted bottom 15cm or so and weld in some angle iron. The saw will get shorter but put it on a mobile base and you are OK. If you dont have a welder rivets or even bolrs will do.

Thaks JoséMário, but as in my original post, with a serious saw that, “I want the saw to be immaculate and true to the original when said and done”. I didn’t feel I could accomplish that with that base and was unable to find a source for one other than another saw.
