It’s never going to be a perfect example of a PM66 but that works fine for me. It’s rust free and the top is clean and flat. The rust was bad in a few spots but nothing that would come close to making it too weak to hold the saw or anything you put on it. It’s been scrapped, ground, bondoed, primed, and painted:) It came with an extra arbor bearing so that got put in along with every inch of the inside torn down and cleaned. The fence is actually the original powermatic one that came with it but it’s missing the locking bar, I can use a wrench but that takes too long. I plan on upgrading the fence anyway so I still feel like it was a great deal for me. I think if I was to sell it right now I could get $700 without question.
