    Thanks Gerry, I was looking at it today and the 3" makes sense. I measured just over a 1 1/2" centre of the shaft to the bottom of the table cast. I think I am going to stick with the 3450 motor and get a smaller 3 1/4" motor pulley. A have already drilled and taped the casting to fit. They ran machines a little slower back then because the HSS blades so I am going to up the speed a bit.
    Cheers, Mark

      those pulley sizes sound about right, maybe even 2 1/2 on the arbour and a suitable one on the motor.

      my 3200's are spinning at 5000 rpm with no issues(8 inch blade), blade quality has improved a lot since these old saws were built, balance and vibration is far better than the old blades

        Thanks, Mark

        Mark I have the same old Rockwell tilty and it runs as following if this may help:


        1725 X 7 /3 = 4025rpm

          Andre, Thanks for the information, How do you find the saw? I can't decide if I am going to keep the machine yet.

            I just measured mine - bottom of the pully groove to bottom of the pully groove is 1 7/8". It also has Browning BK 30 cast into it if that of any use?

              Unfortunately there are many issues with this particular table saw model:


              The fact that there are so many moving parts requires regular maintenance because these become clogged with sawdust and machine becomes very difficult if not impossible to adjust properly.

              This means taking the whole saw apart,clean everything,relube and put it back together.I have to perform this at least 3-4 times a year on mine.

              The numerous openings under the table make it impossible to have efficient dust collection.

              When I tilt the table and then bring it back 90 degres the blade and table slots become out of parallel almost everytime ,again there is a lot of fiddling around to fix this.

              With no possibility of adding wings to this particular type of table,working large panels becomes difficult and hazardous unless using an extension on both the right side and the outfeed side.

              The original base being quite narrow,it is not possible to set the tool on a mobile base , it could easily tip over.

                Andre - Grease and oil are a magnet for the saw dust. The next time you clean it try rubbing plain old parrifin wax on the racks and pinion gears, sawdust does stick to it.

                The other issues, I can't help you with these.

                  Thanks Gerry,

                  I'll give it a try when the next tune up is to be done.

                    Thats good to know for when I put mine back together, I was wondering what to use instead of oil/grease.

                      Mark,
                      That's a model no. 34-305 (cast iron stand) the open leg stand was model 34-307. By the serial number was made in 1952. The last year of the Milwaukee WI. made units.
                      I've got a 1939-40 model no. 1160 (same saw open leg stand) that I'm redoing.

                          Hi Jack,
                          The shop is on hold, the wife was in the hospital twice in the past few months it kind of put a crimp on the finances as well as time. She's doing good now.
                          I'm still figuring out this site, as to posting pictures etc.
                          I'm leaning more towards items from the Delta Specialty Co. era, when I can find them.

                            mark and i have made a deal, the old delta will shortly be mine

                            as much as like the little beaver 3200, its just too small for regular shop use, i'll keep it of course and use it as a dedicated dado/tenon machine
