Re: Share your Magna memorabilia!

So… what’s with all those miter gauges?? Well about a week ago, I had the good fortune of acquiring an old Magna-Line standalone table saw.

Re: Serial number database of non-SPT Magna-Line tools?

Model 745 Magna 4” Belt Sander 74 500 (It does not have SPT Mounting Posts) Thanks for mentioning this one, Russ! This was another of the “thrifty-three” - low-end, standalone power tools - targeted to that part of the market that wasn’t shelling out for a Shopsmith or standalone SPTs. . IMG_1519.j...

Serial number database of non-SPT Magna-Line tools?

As if my collection of Model 10s, Mark 5s, Mark 2, and Sawsmiths (yes, plural) were not enough, now I appear to be adding Magna-Line tools to the stable… Picked up a really cool and very good condition standalone Magna 9-inch Table Saw this week, and looking forward to that restoration project this ...
