Here’s a short youtube clip of me using the Tannewitz I restored awhile back. No, it didn’t take this long to work up the gumption to use the saw… Just this long to get around to sharing a video! The brake module sure is nice to have on this machine.

Wow, 16” blade. That must cost a lot. With that much capacity you can cut through most anything.

This might just make you sick, but I traded the saw straight up for a shop smith. The blade and two others came with it.

This saw will take up to an 18” blade. I use the 16 because it’s what I have and you’re correct, the blades in this size are rather pricey. With a 16” I can cut something like 3.75” and 4.75 with an 18” blade.

This saw is a direct drive unit, so the arbor/center of the blade isn’t nearly as close to the table as with tilting arbor cabinet saws.
