Topic tags/keywords: table saw

Hi, I have been inactive since 2014, at that time I was cleaning up a Craftsman 113 Table Saw. Anyhow, after being distracted for sometime I am getting back to my tools and the fine art of making sawdust.

I was looking at tools on Craigslist. I was not really searching for anything, but then I saw that someone was selling a Porter Cable PCB270TS for only $200. He was getting ready to move out of state and needed to sell it.

So now I have a new saw. It had spent too much time in a barn not being used. It appears to be in good order, but the top is just starting to lightly rust. I plan to use Boeshield T-9 and then Johnson paste wax.

It would be helpful if I could remove the top to give the gears a good cleaning and a dry lube. Does anyone have any advice about this? I don’t want to give myself unneeded work. It looks like the saw’s workings may also be attached to the table. I’ll keep you all posted and will submit pictures after I get the table reassembled.

-- If I ever turn up missing, check the garage.

This kind of thread normally isnt followed up on.

But i wouldnt remove the top if you dont have to. Will take a lot of alignment.

Here is a link to a powermatic rebuild blog.

Thank you. The top will stay.

How does a rebuild of a Powermatic help on a Porter Cable?
