Topic tags/keywords: my new unisaw

Well, here are the pictures that I promised. The top is stamped LTA-401, the Extensions are LTA-402. The fence is LTA-450 a2.
The brass tag on it reads:

Mine Appliances Safety Co.
Property Records Tag #702920 1947
Sticker 305- 8/13/73

Runs fine and happy for what I got for my $150

Nice. Serial number does place it as being made in 1947 in Milwaukee. Are you planning on doing any kind of restoration or anything to it? If nothing else, being 70+ years old, I’d put in some fresh bearings if it were mine.

Cheers,
Brad

Brad, thanks for the info on it. I don’t plan on doing anything now as the PO had been using it right along and I have a full kitchen to do and want to use this saw. I’m soon to be 83 and don’t even buy green bananas anymore. I need to get this job done so if time allows I would like to see it look like some of the saws that others have restored.

Jim, thanks, I’m very glad to have been the one to get it. Finally found a man who was good to his word or I would not have it. larry

Nice, had a 49er and thought the fence was the greatest, did fine adjustments so easily, and locked down to great also. A Keeper as they say.
