If your Craftsman saw plugs into a standard 120v outlet, it’s not really 3hp….that’s marketing deception. The motor plate should give the accurate hp rating, which should be in the 1.5hp range. The guts of your Cman saw are essentially the same as the Ridgid contractor saw, and were both made by Emerson. The Ridgid has an upgraded fence, and built in wheels, but otherwise many of the parts are interchangeable with your saw. The Delta’s fence isn’t so hot either…nice saw, but would also benefit from a fence upgrade, so it’d be kind of a lateral move. They all have similar potential that boils down to setup, blade, and fence. The old Emerson Cman saws go in the $100-$150 range pretty regularly here….YMMV.
