Can you place this saw?


Hi,
Can you tell from this picture
http://freeboundaries.com/mysterysaw.jpg
what this saw is and (if it's in good work order) what it might be worth?
Thanks,
Aaron

Figure $250-300. More with less rust and a paint job.

Hard to be sure, but it looks like an old Stanley or Rockwell table saw. Although it could be any number of other brands. Do you have any other info? Like where you found it, if it was outside (meaning it may not be too old), was it with other stationary tools (if so, did they have makers plates, that could suggest that the owner had levels of tools). people who buy low end stationary tools don't tend to mix them with high end ones. Though thats not a hard and fast rule, it is a good indicator. The style is called "cabinet saw" and is usually a high end saw. General, Jet, Powermatic, and of course Delta make very good versions of this type, but some low end asian tool makers also make these types, like the Harbor Freight Chicago Electric and Central Machinery brands. The low end are hit and miss, you might get a good tool or you might not, their quality varies widely. Look under the top around the trundle assembly for any marks. Also any logos, numbers or letters stamped or cast in or on any parts. Also see if you can post a larger picture, that one is awfully small to show any detail. Good luck, David

That looks a lot like the Delta saw we had in High School except it was green.

... Only that if it was green it had been repainted or was General or Powermatic not Delta/Rockwell or Walker-Turner (altho don't think this one is quite that old).
From the size of the fence and rail I'd guess there's at least a decent chance this is a 12" rather than 10" and likely to be 3-phase.

A ruler in the picture to give us an idea of the size would be helpful.
