Yeah, I have that same saw. See my mods here.

The only thing I would like to upgrade now is the stand. This is a cheap HF stand that was on sale and was only intended to get the saw up and running (4 years ago!). I have been planning to build a decent workstaion for this saw but, you know, things always get in the way!

I like it. Really, I don’t see any reason why I need a bigger/better saw. I am still using the original 1 HP motor. The worst I have thrown at it is 1” black walnut and 1” cherry and it does fine! I think the old Craftsman saws are just about deathless. If anything does go wrong, they are sooo easy to fix!
