I found this sight wile looking for a new rip fence for the ts. It seems every time I use the ts that is the first thing I want to change. I gess I got spoild in high school useing the powermatic cabnet saw w/ the besemer fence. I will have to get over that because there is no way I am ploping down 2 or 3 thousand for a saw. I will have to work on the one I have. The Crafstman I have is good just needs some tuning up (new fence, and maybe a work station).
I have some experienced tools a 1954 SS, late 70’s Craftsman contrators TS, mid 80’s 14” Craftsman bandsaw, and several power tool I inherited from my Grandfather. I used to work at a tool repair shop wile in high school (mainly cleaning up and some minor repair work) so I like to find old (experienced) tools and try and bring them back to life.
I have 18 mo twins so finding time to work on any thing is a challenge. It seem like all I get to do is home repair projects that cost to much to have some one els do it. The last one was new draws for the kitchen the fronts were fine. But the partical boad draw just was not holding up. Priced buying replacements and HD wanted $100 each. That was out so $50 later and all 3 are good to go.
Some of my intrest are wood turnings and boxes.
