    Unipoint Saw

    I saw this in the local craigslist. Way to much machine for me, no way to handle it, nor the room, but I thought someone might be interested.

    I think it's something like this:

    Northfield bought the saw line from american woodworking machine from what I could find. Quite impressive

    Dang! If that's the saw he's selling for $250, it looks like someone is going to get a heck of a deal.

    There might have been more uni-points than that one, it's just the only thing I found on uni-point radial arm saws. I suspect it needs a little restoring. From what I read, the rights to the saw were sold to northfield foundry and machine in 1963, so it has to be older than that.

    Wish I had room

    Seriously, I'd have to rent equipment just to unload a beast like that, could never justify the floor space. I'd love one if I had room though. My gues is they are a little outdated by the modern slider.
