So I have been on a rant about the 50's recently. I think the style back then was awesome. The things built back then weren't only designed to look gorgeous, but they were built to last. No plastic, no parts designed to break so you buy another, just good craftsmanship. I am starting to collect things from this era, and trade out things I have now that are breaking or having problems with things from this era. One of the first things I needed was a table saw. For $25 and an hour of oiling and tightening a few bolts I got this one. It was built in the mid 50's, wasn't used in 15 years, and today ran all day chopping thin plywood to thick pressure treated planks. It worked unbelievably well and is a solid beautiful tool.
