no previous part Part 1 of "New" Table Saw series Part 2: Begin Rust Removal »

Earlier this summer, I acquired an old 10” Craftsman table saw at a garage sell for $35.00! I already have a newer Craftsman 10” table saw. I got the old one with the intent to fix it up and build an all-in-one table saw, router table, sanding table, and storage center. I am finally getting started tonight by breaking it all down and starting to remove some rust. Whoever owned this thing previously sure didn’t take very good care of it. I’ll continue to post and get some pictures of the saw along the way.

I look forward to more, and if there aren’t pictures, it didn’t happen.
