    Picked up this saw Saturday for $30. The Arm would not swivel and the table is missing. The thing is solid and made of cast iron. It also has an extra head including the tilt and bearings assy.

        Nice find.. Someone probably cut up the table. Shouldn't be hard to make a new one.

        Shouldn't be too hard to get going.

            Took it all apart. Cleaned and lubed all the parts of the base unit. The braces between the legs were missing making it wobbly. I had a piece of light U channel that is used to stiffen steel stud walls that I cut up to length and installed.
            The head seems to function but I will give it a good going over as well. The rip lock mechanism appears to be missing but I don't intend to use it for ripping. I have a table saw for that.

            The brackets for the table are missing but I think I can fab something up.
