I have been building simple outdoor furniture out of pallets and salvage lumber. Sold dozens of pieces on Etsy, Craigslist, and my front yard. So I got a bigger, badder table saw off CL. The first time I ran it (in my shop), I had to put on my hearing protection right away – the high-pitched whine was unbearable!
It wasn’t long before it started to try and seize, causing the breaker to trip, and the lights to flicker.
So I thought I would just use my little contractor saw, also a Craftsman, to build a work bench, with drawers.
It turns out that making box joints, and using dimensioned wood to create furniture-grade assemblies is much more demanding than potting benches and park benches, out of raw pallet wood!
So production on two custom-orders has stopped until I get the motor back from the repair shop, with new bearings.
