Jim,yeeeup...had that same Rockwell bx.It was a muscle builder,haha.Decent enough saw though....think we might have replaced the belt once,maybe a cpl new tables...but never wore it out.
Brink,was hinting at the notion of,or the possibility maybe of milling some slots in a new,fancy...elect bx.Those "stops" on that old Stanley,from a design/utility standpoint are rather elegant.I'll shoot a pic of the M/F bx that I use,still.It dosen't have that style stop...but does have end stops.One of its primary uses here,now is for cutting dado's in stock thats too thin to manage on one of the bigger pcs of equip.And if push came to shove....could make a case for doin tennon shoulders.....it just is an easier,quieter,less tearout and almost faster way vs big equip.We probably use it a cpl times a month.BW
Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
