    Ellis 1100 Miter Saw Restore

    Well, Matt brought it to my attention that I had not posted my Ellis Miter Saw rebuild. So here it is. This is one of my Craig's List buys and I could not pass it up for the $850 price. They are made right here in Verona Wisconsin and highly sought after by the welders and fabricators. This one is the little 1100, just perfect for me. So here are the before pics.

    Very cool Randy. That bandsaw is now just as pretty and useful as your restored Bridgeport.

    Did you put a PowerTwist belt on as an upgrade to the standard V-belt? I've had good luck with them, and use them on my Crapsman table saw, Wilton (Jet) and Grizzly bandsaws, and Jet drill press.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    No Matt, I did not do that yet. It will probably be the next belt.

    Very cooooool Tom.

    It doesn't look like it is in too bad a shape. Does it run and cut?

    Randy,

    Yup, it runs and cuts. It's got some slop in the bushings and plates but nothing that cant be fixed. It has the auto shut off lever which was an option I believe. Clausing has common wear parts listed for it as does Sears (I think they get them from Clausing)
