My favorite tool may soon be an amphibious 535 baler harvesting birds nests in branches overhanging the river.

Don't be a tool, I meant that tongue-in-cheek.  I'm not fond of birds anyway unless I'm eating them.

The old cast iron made in USA model, probably with an Emerson motor and real bearings on the arbor.  I'd be keeping that for sure.

All the 'quality' stuff tofay is die cast aluminum with sleeve bearings.....

I want a CNC router table but I don't have $ 300,000.00 to blow right now.

Get a sliding table saw...cuts are cleaner and perfectly square.

We have two old Dewalt table saws that are over 60 years old that we still use on a daily basis.

There are a few posts missing (for whatever reason I have no idea, it's not like we were violating any regulation.....), but, It's a 575, not 535 (not sure what a 535 is).

Think I'm gonna change my favorite to a brush chipper.  A certain arcane enjoyment is derived from turning branches into mulch (or getting wood and then chipping it)......  The one I'm contemplating handles 10", more than most here possess (Fuzz excepted of course)..... ;D

LOL, excuse my ignorance of baler series numbers.  Like Michael Keaton.....220, 221 whatever it takes.....same as 535, 575 whatever it takes.   ;D

220/221 Volts Whatever it takes?

Craftsman 1 HP table saw ~~~~~1956 vintage

I have one and it's just about 1956...   I'm sure I was less than 10 when my Dad bought it...   10 would have made it a '59!

Like the sliding table saw. But I'm guessing it is just a wee bit outside of my budget. I paid 25 dollars for my 1956 did a cleanup and repaint and found it works great. I had every expectation of replacing the bearings in the saw and sending the motor out for rewinding and bearing replacement but to my joy everything worked great. I wouldn't trade it for anything short of a cabinet saw and even that would be a tough decision. Buy one today any see if it still runs in 60 years.
