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.

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.
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.
