Default Atlas table saw...it's an oldie!

MODEL S8ES
Picked up this guy at the local recycling center for $10. Motor is a little slow to start (capacitor?) and if any pressure is applied to the pulley with my hand it stalls. I have (2) 113 craftsman tablesaw motors, 1hp and 1.5 hp that I can put on it but would rather try to repair the existing motor…price willing. It doesn’t have a fence but I’m thinking of building a small sled for it. The tilt and height cranks are very smooth and I’m sure after a good cleaning and a little lube they will be even smoother. Not sure of date of manufacture but I’m sure it’s older than me. Btw…this saw is built like a tank and considering it’s small size it weighs just as much.
Any ideas or input would be appreciated.

Looks like a very old "contractor" type saw with the side tables missing..

Nice saw and a good save. I have an older 9 inch Delta which I put a Delta T2 fence on. My saw is not as old as yours.

Kyriakos ~ I believe that your Atlas saw was built around 1939 or early 40's. An excellent web site for this type of old machinery is vintagemachinery.org
I found a link to a guy that has your exact model. Good luck on your restoration. Your TS appears to be in good shape.
