Introduction and teardown

This first video shows an overview of the machine as obtained, followed by a total disassembly down to component parts.

The motor does work, and when initially tested the saw was capable of some light cutting, however the blade was very loose and the tension adjustment was seized.

The insides are full of ancient sawdust. Externally the paint is in reasonable condition for a 40 year old device. The aluminium table has a coating of what appears to be a paint residue, leaving a rough textured finish.
