I purchased a table saw for $60 at the flea market this weekend. I have been researching but I can't find any info, none at all. it has a brass plate on the side of the table that says M 800 AS 400678. It has Casting markings of an M in a Triangle and an M in a pill shaped oval, all of the Castings have N-# labels. The Fence rides in a slot similar to the miter gauges, I can't even find any pictures online of a similar fence type. Take a look at the pics and let me know if you have any information, Thanks

I looked but can't find another example of that table saw, you have a really unique toy!

Once you use it a bit tell me if that Pedistool is better for cleaning up the sawdust or worse.

Heavy little rascal for an 8" saw. Never saw one like it. Cool saw.

I have the floor pedestal from one, never knew what it came from. Maybe it's not from a Blue Star, but it appears to be exactly the same. Always planned on using it for making a roller pedestal for the table saw and for the power hacksaw, using two different pieces of pipe to gain two different elevation ranges. I was always concerned that the 18" diameter might be too small to be stable enough though. Doggone thing weighs a ton, so it might just be more stable than I first thought.

Great find though, that is a cool looking saw.
