Hey all! New guy here.
I recently got bitten by the woodworking bug and had this old table saw fall into my lap. It belonged to a buddy (was his grandfathers). He never used it, and was going to throw it away after his wife backed into it with the car! She knocked it over and mangled the motor mount. I took it off of his hands and used some angle iron to fab up a new motor mount (ugly, but it works!).
The saw takes smaller blades. I was able to fit an 8” blade to it.
The deck is cast iron and seems to be very flat. The wings are webbed cast iron and NOT true to the deck (How do I adjust those!)
It’s a Power Kraft from the 1950’s (I did SOME research :D) apparently sold through Montgomery Wards (remember that store?)
So….. What should I expect out of this saw? The fence….. stinks. Think its worth upgrading the fence? Is it even possible? Advice and suggestions appreciated!
