    So the extensions were only held along their sides? The HD shaper uses the same extensions IIRC, pretty vulnerable to breaking.

    Not that I know of. The old Uni's never had anything out back.

    Is there supposed to be a length of angle iron or something to support the extension table?

    Mine is supported with the rear fence rail which is an aluminum extrusion and the side edge of the extension is bolted to the side edge of the table. I also have adjustable legs to support the outside front and back corners.

    My Rockwell has a rail on the back which the extension table is attached to.

    David the switch on your saw was probably moved to the back because the sign shop found it easier to get at while cutting large sheet goods.

On the other two examples, the tag says "Rockwell Manufacturing Company of Canada, Limited". This is the name they used prior to 1973 so it is likely an older saw. Would love to see a photo of the tag!

    BTW, there is no master list of Canadian serial numbers so you won't be able to determine exactly when your saw was produced.

    Here’s the tag :-)
