So, I started my woodworking life with a Black and Decker 13amp $100 table saw last fall. I installed a lam floor with it in October, but frankly…. it’s just not all that one hopes for in a table saw. I’m sure you’ll agree with me on that.
So, I started looking on Craig’s List for a table saw with a steel top, decent-sized working surface and a square fence. Missing from that list was SAFETY! So I found an ad for a Craftsman Electronic TS, Model number 113.290650, went over to look at it. The computer was broken, which I didn’t care about. You could still easily change the depth and angle of the saw blade. But once I got it home (all 10 tons of it!) I realized that it doesn’t have a guard or the like.
So I’m trying to figure out how to make the saw safe without getting rid of it.
