For all the bitching about the deline in Unisaw quality and foreign
manufacturing, they still go for double the price of a Whitney table
saw. Odd, considering the Whitney machines we've got at work- they're
a damn fine toolmaker, and they're US based. That sucker looked like

convertor only goes up to 5 horse) which makes it not doable
by a large percentage.
On the other hand, the prices of smaller single phase
machinery (Unisaw class) has steadily risen over the last
