oliver 88-d

Filed under: old tools — howarth frank @ 8:35 pm

still no shop, but more tools. i won an on-line auction for an oliver 88-d table saw last week.  i drove to Seattle this morning to pick it up.  it weighs just over 1600 lbs so i rented a trailer as this was a little too much for the truck bed.  the saw looked like hell in the auction photos, but it seem to be in fairly good condition.  there is no play in the (huge) blade and it turns freely and silently.  i need to find a fence and a side table for it, and a shop built around it.
