Picked up a Craftsman TS, Model # 315.228510 off of Craigslist for $50 with the help of everyone here.
As you can see it was in pieces with some surface rust on the table top but overall it looked in great condition. It was missing the fence and miter gauge however.
It was definitely a project getting it home in my little Subaru, but we made it fit.
Once home I preformed a deeper inspection noticed 4 additional issues
The only one of these that really took any work was the number 4 as I had to elongate the bolt holes on the extension to give me more play. it was only off maybe 1/16” but it was there.
The incra v27 should be arriving today and as you can see in the picture above I have started to open up the Delta T3 (new version of the T2) to determine where I need to drill holes to mount it.
I’m actually thinking of drilling the holes in the TS itself because I’m worried that the fence already has the counter sunk holes drilled and it is easier without a drill press to “simply” drill through the cast iron.
Would love your thoughts and feedback. It is never too late to correct my mistakes
ps: pardon the messy basement, I was in the middle of clearing out a lot of stuff when I found this so I had to create a hole in the chaos to give me space to work on it.
