Well I ended up buying the saw for $300. I was just about to pull the trigger on a unifence for $200 and realized that I may be able to get the Biesmeyer fence and the Unisaw for not a lot more, so I went back and offered him $250. We landed at $300.

My brother helped me get it home and in the garage (which is a mess…been building book shelves for a few local teachers.) I plugged it in and the motor runs fine. The fun will come when I put the arbor back in and try to figure out why the blade has some wobble in it.

There is a little rust on the top, but other than that it seems to be in pretty good shape for sitting idle for the better part of a decade.

It came with the original arbor and the new one he installed with new bearings , but it still had the wobble. After the new arbor didn’t work, he just bought a new saw and moved this one off to the side.

I checked the washer and the nut to see if they are flat. The washer is, but the nut is not. Could this be the mysterious cause to the wobble?
