    TS identification

    Anyone recognize the brand on this one? Maybe mid century, has a fused protection switch and it's going cheap so far...

    I'm not sure of the brand, but I believe it was once owned by Stumpy McNinefingers.

    Hmmmm, it would be an upgrade for me but I think the shipping would be too costly.
    Maybe they would sell the blade separately ??

    I think all I'd do to it is replace the wing with a cast iron bench dog router wing and then enclose the base for better dust control. Maybe a new blade...although that one probably just needs a quick sharpen.

    Keep shopping. Yard sales and auctions can often be sources of good old tools. I paid $20.00 for my ancient Craftsman. Put on new 3 hp motor, new paddle switch and link belt. Plus time cleaning. Now I have a good saw.

    Love it,

    The fuse is awesome.

    Great display piece - I wouldn't change a thing on it.

    I have a late uncle who owned one of those. Its the "Deathtrap 2000" with extra finger mangle-ability features. I sure miss uncle Nubby.
