Got a lot done since my last post. I got the new arbor bushings into my Craftsman 113.27520 saw:


While it was apart, my wonderful wife jumped in and helped me to re-paint it a snazzy blue!




And I finally finished the router cabinet for the WOOD magazine mobile sawing and routing center, and got everything put together:




We are moving after only living here a year; buying a house with more land. So it’s just going to be little projects for the shop with the materials I have, until then …

I don’t know about that blue :)

But that is a nice restore and a very nice workstation for it. I love the old Craftsman/Emerson saws. They are just so simple to work on – barring the mixup with bearing sizes, you could have had the bearings replaced in less than a day. And every time I hear of alignment woes posted here with double-tube support for the blade I appreciate the one-piece cast iron design of Sears 113 series saws.

I predict you’ll be using this workstation and saw for a loooong time!

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

We considered bright red for the saw as well … We though we were being conservative going with blue :)

Congrats on finishing the 113 … I like the blue, it’s yours and there is probably none other like it …
to have the wife help you in the shop makes you truly blessed.
And a new home to boot?? hope there is plenty of room for the shop.

I like the blue. Not sure I could pull it off, but that old Craftsman wears it well.

+1 for the blue! ‘Course, blue’s my favorite color anyway ;). Great job restoring the saw. That looks like a wonderful workcenter you made for yourself. Good luck on the move!
