Saw this saw on our local Craigslist. Does anyone have one and how
good is it? It appears there's no safety gear (splitter, guard).
I wonder how many cabinets, tables, homes have been built
with these saws?
Good thought, but this saw probably weight 750 pounds with a center of
gravity about 1/2" above the floor. I doubt you could push it over with a
Nevertheless, that's probably why it has bolt holes in the legs...

That's just like the one I picked up at an estate sale earlier this year.
Mine did have a guard, an early version of an overhead one. I haven't had
the time to restore it yet, but I'll post pictures when I do.
BTW, the table not only tilts, but cranks up and down. The blade and
motor never move. Makes for a quiet saw when everything is lined up.
Take a look at owwm.org for more pictures.
I saw a saw like that for sale just the other day. It was marked as
"Delta Rockwell" and it was a bit rougher than the one shown in the
picture. The belt was exposed, and the tilting mechanism a bit flaky.
For $200, I passed. It looked like an accident waiting to happen.
