I purchased the Rockwell table saw back ard 1985 for ard $125-$150. See pic below.
Its Model 34-345 and the motor is 110-120V and draws 13amps.
The handle that raises the blade comes off and needs to be repaired. You have to push it in and hold whole you turn it. Sometimes it slips and comes off. 2nd, thereís no wheels and I have to drag it across the floor to use it. No telling what this banging has done? I can add some wheels. 3rd, I have to measure both ends of the blade from the fence to make true parallel cut.
My question is, reckon I aught to take the time to tear it down and adjust fix all + new brushes etc or sell and buy a new one?. I love saving money but as my earlier posts indicate, I have heap of ripping to do.
Actually, it spins up fine, is kinda loud but seems to run ok. Iím thinking it just might be too little power for all the ripping Iím gonna do.
Now I heard about wiring for 2 phase and I was wondering is that another option to get more power?
There wld be more peace in the valley if I keep it <g> Ö Blueraven
