That saw is a hand-me-down from my father. It belonged to his father, who used it in their attic to make Christmas toys for his 14 kids.I see safety is top priority at the loneframers house. I love the pic and want one just like it. :notworthy
Ironically, my grandfather lost his thumb in a tablesaw, just not this one.:blink: Who needs a stinkin' bladeguard anyway?:shutup:cool pics lf...where's the blade guard? :whistling
put new brushes in it and it'll work fineMy first miter saw was the Hitachi 8 1/2" slider. 18 years old and still works. Needs a new swithch because the brake doesn't work. Beat to hell, the gliding action is rough and it looks old. Still does the job. Best tool I have bought.
Any ideas on how old this is? It's at least 70 years old, but could be more. Still runs too.:thumbsup:
OOOHHHH YEAH BABY! First I want to see the saw........and then I wanna see the bits.Loneframer, I literally just pulled a saw just like that out of my grandmothers basement. Also found down there was a nice polished wooden box (kind of like a cigar box) that said Irwin on it. Upon opening it I found it was a Bit set, and get this the inside of the box was pretty Irwin Blue felt. I'll see if I can get a picture when im there this weekend.
I about lost my marbles, dont know why but it was pretty sexy.
Watch it Lone... NATHAN will close this thread down you asking to see his bits :shifty:OOOHHHH YEAH BABY! First I want to see the saw........and then I wanna see the bits.
