    I also believe this to be true, at least as far as "wrapped" belts, but maybe a belt expert could confirm. I think that we can still buy "raw edge" belts in matched sets as they simply bind them in pairs/triples etc as they take them off the cutter. I have been told by belt sellers that wrapped belts are accurate enough that matching is not done on them anymore.

      I’d be interested to know if there is a material difference between a set of unmatched belts and a set of matched belts.

        Progress on the saw this far.
        1) I decided to ditch the Unifence. KMS had an Excalibur fence on for crazy cheap. I always preferred the Beismeyer style so this feels right to me.

        2) Swapped the Excalibur light gauge rear angle rail for 2x2x1/8” angle.
        Drilled to match the table. Polished the top. Smooooooth! Fence glides like butter.

        3) Bought new belts.

        4) The other night I picked up a drafting table from a neighbour. The top is unmarked and measures 48”x 32”. Perfect size for the side extension table.
        Score!
        (Just laid the top in for trial purposes)

          Supertune your table saw in 4 parts, should work I think.

              Based on the date cast into the eggshell motor cover I think my saw was made in 1965. For certain the cover was made in Jan 5 or May 1 of 1965.
