Don t think the stand is actually cast iron. Probably folded sheet metal with cast iron parts, like the old Unisaws. Jim

It’s cast iron. According to the 1961 catalog, the #667 stand weighs in, by itself, at 118 pounds! IIRC, it was just a few years after that (1962-3?) that they stopped offering the cast iron stand as a package option (although it was still available as an option) and switched to an enclosed sheet metal stand (in addition to the standard open stand).

As to finding them… they do turn up now and then, and I believe there are a few for sale over at the OWWM classified section (BOYD) right now.

Cheers,
Brad
