It looks like they are quite expensive new. Looks like a good TS especially if you got it for cheap
I think you did very well https://www.toolup.com/Powermatic-1791230K-64B-Table-Saw-with-50-Fence-Riving-Knife-1-75HP-115-230V?CATARGETID=120204890000550310&CADevice=c&gclid=Cj0KCQjwjPaCBhDkARIsAISZN7T6UxUDp821HT0Aw0eBo0Ax4R6_4ExebsIQ9jLC5Buwf2baemm9J58aAqwUEALw_wcB
Nice find, I need a chop saw, or compound miter, whatever you want to call them, I originally sold mine and some tools but now that things have changed I need one!JR
Cant be 100 percent certain about your meaning regarding change,
This website is very helpful with old American made machines. http://www.owwm.org/index.phpRead the rules. Interesting as well as useful. I also recommend looking for the owner's manual online.
Your new saw looks to be a good one. I’m a retired floor installer my last fifteen years almost all I did was wood floors. When installing flooring all your cuts are done freehand fences and miter gauges aren’t needed your saw just needs to be light. When you are working with thin wood 3/4 or thinner try using a 7 1/4 24 tooth thin kerf carbide blade cuts sweet and doesn’t though much saw dust in your face.
Most the work I do with my table saw is light duty so I mostly use 7 1/4 construction skill saw blades. Let’s say I am ripping 2x4s that’s when I use a thick 10 inch blades they handle heat much better. I could not tell by your pics but I assume your saw is belt drive.Belt drive saws have more power than a direct drive saws with a belt drive saw a 7 1/4 blade you will have almost no resistance cutting thin stock. One thing I see people doing when useing powder saws is they leave the blade razed way high over their work that’s not good you want your blade to be 3/8 to 1/2 over what you are cutting. Good luck have fun..Mike
Went to the store today and got me a few things one being a 10-in Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw! Although I’m more thrilled over the huge freaking gas grill, no more small charcoal,, everything will be delivered Tuesday!JR
A survivalist mentor that calls himself Greywolf on the net has a SHTF solar oven and cooker using a giant fresnel lens out of those old rear projection TVs the size of a Mini Cooper. It is even simpler than gas. It probably could double as a directed energy weapon also!😀And congrats on the compound mitre. That’s what I was aiming for before Big Bertha crossed my path. I may still get a CM.
