    Wattizzit saw thingy?

    This saw thingy was for sale in a resale shop I stopped in last week.
    Fastened to a large table. The 'wings' are fixed, do not move. Looks like a 10" table saw blade.
    Beats the dickens out of me what it was used for.
    Enney ideas?

    It IS upside down, and it's not a home-made item. It's an actual tablesaw - about 1925~30 vintage.

    A neighbor of mine in California had one and was still using it. Can you say scary?

    That is a vintage finger remover.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Upside down table saw is the consenus. They wanted $75.00. I was going to offer $10.00 but decided I don't really need another piece of junk sitting around the house.

    $10 is way more than I'd pay for it. I wouldn't take it if it was free. Like Mohammad said, wise decision there Frank.

    I think this sums it up quite nicely.
