Newman ripsaw
« on: March 15, 2011, 08:32:32 PM »
I have posted this saw before with out any results. It is sitting in my horse barn and wife says it has to go. If I don't get any takers it is going to the scrap yard which I would consider a shame. This is a great piece of American woodworking machinery history. Made early 1900's, 15hp main motor, 1.5 feed motor, new carbide tipped rip saw blade. Table height adjusts up and down and feed mechanism goes up and down. Variable feed speed by mechanical adjustment crank arm. Weighs about 1000lbs, solid cast iron. Everything worked when I took it out of service 2 years ago. It now has some surface rust and bird poop (no extra charge) on it. Motors are wired 440volt, 3 phase. I have a step up transformer that I used to go from 220 to 440volts that I will sell for $250. Asking $300 for the saw.

Mobile Demension sawmill, Bobcat 873 loader, 3 dry kilns and a long "to do" list.
