Real nice Saw there Lee
I'll be bringing home my Dad's saw like that & the jointer too I already have the gold colored band-saw to match them. I wish I had a drill-press to match. I'll also be bringing home 2 shapers & a Belsaw planer & other items to numerous to mention.
In one way it saddens me in another it very special. It is very hard to imagine my Dad a retired custom home builder & custom cabinet maker with little or no tools. He is now 85 & has no place to keep much beyond hand tools & small electric hand tools. He told be he is getting to where he is almost scared to use the bigger tools but not quite.
He wore out the fence so the saw already has the fence off my 1997 model Craftsman I kept it & put a Ridgid fence we had put on Dad's saw on the Craftsman saw before I gave the saw away. The Craftsman fence is a much better fence. I installed it on my saw originally I it lined up perfectly & was again perfect when I installed it on Dad's saw. The Ridgid fence complete weighed less then the front rail of the Sears fence & the fine adjustment of the Ridgid was a little rubber ball rubbing against the bottom of the rail real cheesy the Sears has a rack & pinion fine adjustment system.
