I inheirited some tools from my sister who had them for 7 years after our step father passed. One is a 113.298xxx Craftman TS which I have been fixing up. Unfortunately it is NOT one with the cast iron tops, but he built some nice work on it that's still in our family. Along with my wife's insatiable love of HGTV and a nice old house to work on, I'm finding a love of working with my handyman hands and making her happy at the same time.

Got the base about finished. I’ll be doing a few more projects before I can get to planning the outfeed and getting that built but here it is so far. I got it stained in two colors, black and red to kind of match the colors on the Craftsm...
I have gotten some Ridgid Flip top stands for Christmas and I love them! Would not have been able to do this project without the pair of them. One alone would not have done it. Still I planned the extra depth on this work center so I could add som...
