  • Beaver 3200 Table Saw Restoration and Overhaul

    Hey there everyone, I'm a fairly new member to this site and to OWWM.

    I came across these forums after I purchased my Beaver 3200 Table Saw a few years back from a garage sale in Surrey BC. I was living in Vancouver at the time but have since moved to Powell River and I finally have the space to restore and overhaul this old machine.

    My saw was working well enough prior to deciding to restore it, however, the tilt mechanisms were tight and who knows how long ago it was last serviced, if ever!?

    Here are some pictures of my saw and the beginning stages of my restoration.
    More photos and updates to come!

    Looking good so far. Nice that you got the table extensions.

      Those were nice looking old saws. Looks like your making a nice start on your restoration.

        I'm pretty chuffed to have the extensions, a working fence and a complete blade guard assembly but can't help but wish I had the originals. Beaverfever1988

        Yeah, I definitely like the look of these old saws.
        Thanks for the encouragement Carlosinthesticks.

          Looks good!
          The fence looks identical to the one on my 6201.
          Is that the factory fence?

            I have no idea DavidR8
            Everything pictured came with the saw when I bought it used a few years ago, including the red spray bomb!

              That's a beautiful old saw & you're doing a nice job on the resto, but that original fence is gonna cause nothing but heartache. See DavidR8 's thread where it is discussed at some length. I'd keep the original fence just because it was part of a cool old saw, but fit the saw with something better.

              Looking forward to seeing the finished result.

                the 3200 was made from 1945 till the early sixties. most of them came with the old castiron beaver fence that was also used on the Rockwell 6200 for a short while. that stamped out, bent steel contraption with plastic handles was likely a cost cutting move by Rockwell
                I would be looking for one of the old style fences, the fence rods are the same

                  plenty of 3200 saws here in Ontario
                  here's one near Ottawa, $100
                  https://www.kijiji.ca/v-power-tool/t...ationFlag=true
                  somebody could pick it up and ship the fence to you
                  here's another with fence and guard

                    I guess a person might assume a 6201 is better than a 6200 but it sure isn't in this case.
