    Granny is back

    Hello,
    this table saw belonged to my father.
    He bought it 30 years ago.
    My children help me to give it a little
    hand.
    Regards

    Hola Afredo,
    Your abuelita is looking good. Your helpers are very skilled!

    Be sure and post some pictures of the things you and granny make.
    Don't believe everything you think!

    That looks great, a tablesaw/jointer combo, and it has family history too!

    Great job guys!

    Wow, that looks like it's well built and was originally designed to go on either a bench top or pedestal stand. Is the motor belt driven?

    Nice looking saw.

    That looks like a very impressive machine, Alfredo. What brand is it? You and your sons did a great job of making it look new again.

    the brand of the table saw is Verastegui.
    I donīt know if this company still exist.
    Alan
    it has a motor.
    Stu,
    yes, it is a combo machine.
    It is also posible to drill holes.
    I an not quite sure to use it,
    but you can uses as a router,
    if you put a router bit at the end.

    Abuelita (granny) is a heavy machine.
    My relatives who live in the north of
    the country send it together with the
    lathe. The lathe is working now and
    granny will be working very soon.

    Jesse,
    seguro que mi abuelita se ve bien.

    It has a big sentimental value for me.

    Thanks for your kind words

    Alfredo
    PS I love my children.

    cool old machine alfredo!
    with the joystick it looks as though it could be used for mortising? possibly that`s the router configuration you speak of?
    it`s great that your kids enjoy helping you in the shop! my 2-1/2 y/o likes to help too, but with his help i get very little accomplished so he`s only allowed to "help" on the weekends....tod
