    Diesel powered table saw?

    Looks like it has a riving knife too.

    The last time something diesel follwed me home the wife made me take it back. That would be a intresting addtion to the shop. However it would need to be a fair weather toy(exhaust fumes).

    Interesting. Can't agree with his "looks great" comment.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I could find a home for such a saw -but not at $800.
    Cheers, Frank

    Have you price diesel lately??
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    NOT I!

    I have everything in the shop I need and want for now. Going to concentrate on building (wooden) stuff now. And finishing up the restoration on the bandsaw too.

    I friend of my ex-wife had a gasoline powered saw similar to that, although I think it was more for milling logs into lumber. I never saw it running, but it had an engine from a Ford Pinto, and as I recall it also had the 4-speed gearbox, too.

    I originally thought this might be the same saw (it's not), since this friend lived near Edgewood over in Bruce's neck of the woods.
