monkeywards TS from the 50's were made that way...
yur right,,,....I thought Stick was joking about the "monkey ward" reference; turns out that's what you guys South of 49 call Montgomery Ward. Something like our 'Crappy Tire' but I'm guessing better(?).
sounds like a monkeywards....The motor is a 120v. The rusted saw blades that came with it were 12 inch
Looks like the old Craftsman I had.Here is the only assembled picture I have, the base that it is on is not original to the saw. I weighed the parts individually (except the motor and stand) and they are just under 300 pounds. The saw was loaded into my truck with a fork lift and I had to disassembled it to remove it from the truck.
Stick, thanks for the MW angle and DaninVan for the vintage machine reference.
