Default Dewalt 7755 Table Saw

Well, Friday I got out the door for lunch a bit late (2PM) and was heading to the bank to deposit a my paycheck. I passed a multi-family yard sale at a church, that I decided to visit. At the bank, I grabbed $60 to potentially spend on hand tools at the Yardsale, seeing as my toolboxes are still very lacking. As I got back to the church, someone with a large truck was pulling in with a nice old table saw. I figured they had just gotten it at another sale, but it turns out they were donating it to the sale.

A quick inquiry into it and here's the low-down:
  • Belt Drive
  • 10" Blade
  • Cuts

and it included:
  • Miter gauge
  • Push Stick
  • Both cast-iron wings (this thing is at least 3' wide)
  • Blade Guard

All for the great deal of $50. I grabbed a scrap of pine I had in my car, we fired it up, I verified it cut, and then grabbed my tool box to manage to fit this into my Station wagon. Got it home, runs great, cuts great, etc etc...

Now the problem:

I can't find ANYTHING out online about this saw. I can't find manuals, manufacturing year, even who actually made it. It looks like a delta rockwell late 70s TS to my untrained eye.

Anyone have any insight into this things origin?

Dang, was hoping the manual would provide some insight into the vintage of this saw, and maybe it's MSRP, etc. I did, however, just learn about the saw's 'upcut' feature... gonna try that out!

I think I got a killer deal on this thing at $50. Anyone else have any thoughts on that front?

Just out of curiosity, what search terms did you use? I tried Dewalt 7755, "Dewalt 7755", Dewalt "Table Saw" 7755, and many more combinations, never able to even find a picture of it. I do software development professionally, and know all about googling before asking, having spent 3-4 hours looking for the answers I asked about here. I guess I don't yet have the woodworking google kung-fu yet.
