I have been looking for a 1160 tilty saw and found one on the PA Craig list site.PO inherited the saw from his grandfather who owned it for over 40 yrs.When purchased the saw was mounted on a open leg stand making it a 34-307 but I have an extra 866 CI Base so now the saw is a 34-305. the original fence was included. I have a period correct 1HP Delta RI motor that will be installed.

(Update) thanks to fellow OWWM members I located a original 1173 belt guard and a original 1165 swing blade guard. A full restore is planed.
