I found a guy in my area who has a bunch of older Craftsman tools in a storage shed for sale. I’m going to meet with him tomorrow. Can’t wait. He has that cast iron table saw that I want plus about 15 other tools.
I think I need a truck now.

If he has a 6” x 48” sander, they are really handy to have!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

I’ve got a floor model drill press from the 70’s. It’s a huge heavy hunk of steel that drills well and true.

Also, i second the 6”x48” belt sander. Again from the 70’s. Still in lots of use today.

Craftsman on the lake – I have a circa 1971 Craftsman Drill Press myself. The twin cones belt drive and heavier than any two modern tools put together. I used to use it for everything back when I was a kid. My dad was in business and I was the guy who helped him make his stuff. It still runs, but I haven’t put it in use yet because it’s so darn heavy I can’t move it by myself to where I want to put it. I had a vintage 1959 Montgomery Ward Radial compound arm saw until recently. It must have weighed 300lbs. It worked but who needs a ship anchor like that these days.
