    Robinson table saw rebuild

    I am rebuilding an old English Robinson table saw. I took it apart a couple of years ago, then got distracted with other stuff, so recently got back at it.
    I will post a bunch of photos soon. I have made new shafts for the blade adjustment and made a quick video that i thought you might find interesting.

    Nice, i will watch these for sure. The Martin was a great build.

    Argh, im still a little salty with myself for not buying the Robinson ETE at auction 2 hours north of me. Ended up selling last summer for $750+/-, i remember. Im all out of space, so what can you do.

    This is a Thomas Robinson and sons Variety saw Model ET/E
    It is a British made joinery saw. 7.5hp 18" blade capacity.

    Striped everything off the saw and removed all of the paint from the base with a disk grinder. Then onto body filler and block sanding. more body filler more block sanding. Then about 4 coats of primer and more block sanded between coats, then spot filler.

    Then wading through all of the smaller stuff. All cleaned, masked, sandblasted, cleaned again, old masking removed, re-masked for painting.

    You are indeed fortunate to have that lift available for this great project! That's going to be a fine machine when you are done with it.

    Jim that lift has been very helpful to me over the years. All of this cast iron stuff is seriously heavy, and you need something to help. That lift is small enough for me to use and can lift 1000kg. With a lazy susan it makes things easier to paint also.

    Mark's restorations are second to none. The ETE is my favorite saw, even better in my world than a Wadkin PK. This will be outstanding. Dave
