Inspired by this video series on refurbishing a Craftsman Table saw, I found and purchased one.

Nelson Studios saw refurb

Here it is as I was disassembling it on my pickup.

The saw disassembled, so I could move it and start cleaning it up.

Next up I will clean, paint and polish the wings. I plan to mask the top surface while I paint the bottom with Rustoleum hammered gray spray paint. Then I will clean the top surface and apply Boeshield T-9 and finish with paste wax.

That looks like the model saw I have used for the last 25 years. I look forward to following your progress.

This will be interesting to follow along. I have an old Craftsman that is about a 1950’s model. When I got it, it was in pretty good shape. Good luck with the restore.
