This is an old 66, one of the very early ones. S/N 66-1677, which makes it no newer than 1968.
About 5 years ago I refurbished it. Ground the top flat, replaced the arbor bearings, repainted (matching the original pea-green color). I put on a new Powermatic Biesemeyer-style fence, replaced the UHMW on it with HPL on appleply, and put Starrett rules on the fence bar.
The machine was originally in a middle-school or high-school shop. It is a 2 horse, 3 phase machine. It is completely functional & runs smooth.
Included with the saw:
-24” rails shown
-52” rails (not shown)
-Shop-made table for 52” rails, with adjustable legs
-shop-made teak knee-stop
-some shop made zero-clearance inserts
