I had one of these saws for about four years until I upgraded. I ended up spending the money and put machined pulleys, link belt, and a T2 fence on it. all said and done I had about $300 in the saw. The only reason i got rid of it was because the threads on the arbor were smaller than the flat area where the blade sets and i couldnt use a dado blade and get a smooth bottom. I called Sears and they acknowledged that some of the 113’s had this issue but there was no replacement at that time. If you dont use a dado blade much than this saw would work great for you. My uncle has the align a rip fence in the picture and he still has to measure the front and back of the fence when he moves it. Spend the money and get the T2 Delta fence. My only regret buying the saw was that it took me two years to upgrade the fence!

P.S. If you can find the cast iron wings for it the saw will have more heft and not vibrate as much…
