Surely, if the specially designed and engineered Worklight Remotely Controlled Positioning System, broken Control Housing, and rust are any indication; this has to be a 'Real Deal'. There may be so many potential bidders, you might need to call ahead, and make reservations to attend!!! One question does come to mind though. Is the Glidden paint included, to help keep the machine 'glued' together, or it extra?

Ralph you need a project. Get down there and rescue this great old machine. Pay no mind to the discouraging rantings of others. Think of how proud you'll be when you have it finished and how much time will be well spent. It does look a tad rough but let not your heart be troubled as I'm confident you have the skill, resources and dedication to save this bit of woodworking history.

I have plenty of projects, thanks..

Last week I passed on a really nice old delta ras ($50) because I didn't have the room for it.

For some reason, I bought the $40 unisaw, though. Just couldn't help myself. :roll:

But if one of you guys wants it, I could strap it on a pallet for you and take it to the freight company. Their terminal is a block from our shop.

Why is it all the $40 Unisaw deals are half way across the country? I don't want to even thing what the freight charges might be.

Regarding the Sawsmith, misery loves company. Remember that $30 DeWalt MBF I bought last summer? I'm still hearing about it from SWMBO. Mostly like this: She: "What time are you going to ......" Me: "About .........." She: "Provided of course there isn't some detour to pickup another old tool." :lol:
