Ok so I purchased a new table saw from Home Depot for $35. I was missing lots of parts like, one table extention(wing), blade gard, rails and rip fence. All and all it would cost about $400 to purchase the parts new. Luckly by buddy in Lancaster gave me his old rail and fence system. So I made a zero clearance insert and can’t wait to use it. So now I am starting to build a work bench for the saw and my router.

I went to Home Depot when they were having the Ridged 3560 table saw on special They had sold out of all the saws in a box,and they wanted me to pay for one to be shipped in, Instead I ended up with they’re floor model.They had lost some of the peices to the roll around so I did’nt get that but I ended up under $350.00 for every thing . Not bad for a $550.00 saw and It works great

A saw by parts. What a great concept.

Usually people use parts machine to keep a working saw in order.

You are using good parts off good saws to make your parts saw whole.

Keep it us.
