There are two saws. the one that was modified to hold that huge dado stack looks to be a fun one to hang on to.
Yeah I know, I think i would be a lot more comfortable with that dado saw then the 20" beam saw. I've used a Makita 16" and that was enough for me :laughing:

Oh yeah, didn't see that one at first glance.

I have seen the deep cut thing before, but not the dado stack. That one looks like it shouldn't be legal.:laughing:

Working that beam saw would definitely give you a good lesson in properly supporting the piece you're cutting. I don't even want to think about that thing binding.

It isn't legal. Anymore. Evidently, back in the day, production roof stackers cut birds-mouths with that.
There was a discussion on here a while back where someone was poo pooing framers who over cut their birdsmouths with a skill saw, rather than finishing the cut with a handsaw. I guess this would solve that problem.:clap:

These saws were fairly common in the Sacramento valley in the 70's.

As I recall there was a local machine shop that provided the conversions.
