    new/old saw

    On way to town today I passed a yard sale sign that said "tools". Had to stop. Wheeled in. The guy was cleaning out his garage and had lots of various tools. This old Craftsman (model 133) table saw was there marked $50.00. I asked him to run it. He had to plug in to run, which it did very smoothly. But the switch was broken. He came down to $40.00, I said I would think on it. He countered with $35.00. I continued looking around and came back and handed him $25.00 which he happily took. It definitely needs cleaning but everything works, motor, a 3/4 hp. is new. I am happy with the big table with wings. Kinda feeble in the power department but I'll look around for a 1 1/2 or 2 hp in 110V. My very old $89.00 Delta will be up for sale. I'll ask $50.00 and take almost anything offered. Not a bad day considering.

    Congrats, Frank. That should be a nice step up, and the price is hard to beat.

    Thanks all. I'm happy. I'll be out of town today but tomorrow I'll clean it up and remove the old switch. If I can't find a switch locally, Grizzly has a big assortment at good prices. Plus shipping.

    Check it out, tune it up, slap a sharp blade in there and I think you have money well spent!
