Re: Re: Looking for Highland Park J2/J3 Slab Saw Manual

Hi Rick,

Thanks for the link to the Highland Park web site. However, unless I'm missing something there, they have not re-published the factory manuals for the vintage products produced and sold by the original and now-defunct Highland Park company.

All I've found on the web site of the (new) Highland Park company in the way of saw manuals is a rather generic online manual covering their current saw products. The vintage, circa 1950s model J3 I've acquired differs in numerous details from the current Highland Park model saws.

While I don't really need a manual to work on the saw, I'd still like to acquire a copy of the original Highland Park factory manual covering the J2/J3 model saws for the sake of completeness, and to hand down to whomever inherits this J3 from me after they've pried my cold dead fingers from it... :)

I'll also reproduce the original manual online to make it available to anyone else adopting one of these vintage saws if I'm able to get my hands on one.

When the first of the new Highland Park saws hit the Tucson Show a few years back, I was of course interested to check them out and was there to help un-crate a couple of 18" and 24" units and prepare them for exhibit. At the time I was somewhat dumbfounded to find there were no owner's manuals accompanying them. $2000-$3000 saws and no owners manual. Really?

It's good to see that the new Highland Park has that act a bit more together now.
