2 days ago i bought an old table top saw and a 4’’ joiner by craftsman and a steel table 3’ x 5’ for 50.00 . it looked like it might be repairable so i tore into them today . the commen motor would not work so i checked it out and found a faulty switch so i bypassed it . i readjusted the tables on the joiner and checked for runout and end play , both we good so i honed the blades and hooked up the motor and fired it up . it works great . next i took the saw apart to clean it real good and found that most of the bolts , allen screws ect. were loose so i tightened everything , cleaned it and installed a new blade . the table is in real good shape , the fence fits better than my new contractor saw as does the miter gage. the slots are tight. i reset the adjustment pointers and i think its ready to go . i havent hooked a motor to it yet ill do that tomorrow . its been along time since i worked on something and only needed a 1/2’’ wrench , set of allen wrenches and a screw driver . ( and a dial indicator ). i had a fun day!
