Actually it's more like a scroll saw (OK, it's a scroll saw)
only on steroids. It also has a self contained drill to
allow drilling the interior of a die panel to insert the
blade without entering from the side.
Just say (tmPL), it would be the last scrollie you'd ever
need to buy and the pukie ducks would be HUGE!!!
I will post a picture in the next week or so. Ok here it goes, picture this
its a high precession table saw on its right side. about a 18 x 20 table.
The arbor is fixed so no tilting the blade It uses a standard blade. On the
left is a 18X18 table that runs on rails and has a cast iron fence that has
a movement with thousands on an inch accuracy. The whole table moves with
the wood, the wood is cut by a facing mill cutter again fixed arbor. The
whole saw is cast iron and must be in the 500 pound or more range. Single
phase with triple belts to drive the blades. My dad uses this and his
unisaw but is getting there in his years. this is a very accurate machine
that was from the days when he hand made molds and dies for the packaging
We live in Connecticut
I believe that these machines are no longer used much in box making - my
neighbor is a die maker for a box company - now it is all CNC Laser
cutters - straight from the CAD program to the laser -

That's correct, my dad used this many years ago for his package profession.
He now uses the machine in his home shop to do detailed work.
these are 2 books my dad wrote.
This sounds like a printer's saw like a Hammond TrimOSaw or
a Ben Franklin (among others who made/sold these saws).
Is it a printer's saw?
What is the make?
Where is it located?
UA100, with seven down and thirteen to go in the
question and answer lightening round and wondering,
is this thing on?...
Actually/probably not. I have a friend who is looking for
one and I always look out for these/this sort of thing.
I'm going to have to look back at Wayne's description and
re-read it again. It didn't sound too awful lot like he was
describing a sooper scrollie to me.
