  • A few tablesaw upgrades

    Just a few little upgrades; a 1hp TEFC Baldor and switch, new belt, zc insert, bulked up the fence, and made a crosscut sled. I plan to pick up a new blade and some blade stiffeners as well.

    DSCF2174 (1024x768).jpg I actually grabbed the baldor and switch (The buttons are HUGE!....sarcasm) from a 6201 that I picked up last week for free. I plan on the cleaning up the 6201 and flipping with the old 1/2hp that was on my saw.

    nice looking old 1200!! and probably the worlds most powerfull 1200 as well

    im guessing you dont plan to tilt the blade very often, the little arm that moves the motor over will break trying to move that monster

      Nice upgrades Gavin.

      Do you have a splitter and guard for it?

        Thanks Steve! I would'nt be suprised if it was . I test cut it on a piece of 6/4 oak and 8/4 beech and it didnt even stutter, I just burst out laughing haha its a beast.
        I rarely tilt the blade. When I do, I just reach around and lift up the motor and tilt it (all you cabinet/sliding/euro saw guys probably get a good chuckle at that ).
        I would like to find a good deal on a 3200 eventually, they seem like a nicer saw.

        Rod, guards are for babies!.......Hahaha joking . Unfortunaly I don't, usually the first thing people do with these old guys is rip all the guards off.

          Gavin,

          Here's a long running thread on table saw guards.
