Your craftsman TS can't much older than mine. 1976 contractor's saw, was on a stand. I retired it to only dado work, but is still going strong. I recently added the router and cabinet. Just can't get enough storage space. You notice I didn't enclose the router part. This model Skil has a vacuum port, so I didn't need to enclose, plus makes it easy to get to. If it didn't have the vacuum I would have enclosed it and added a vac port. I call this my cabinet of many colors. Made it from left overs, has yellow pine, fir, red oak, white oak, maple, walnut, hickory, mahogany, cherry and birch. Plus a couple pieces I wasnít sure about. It is on locking casters, I still need to close more of the saw cabinet openings so the vac will work better. Iíll post pictures of that if anyone is interested. I came up with this bit storage method. Easy and cheap. Made from sink cutouts, (free around here)
Wonít swell tight or discolor the bit shanks like wood will. Hope this helps! Oh, use the full extension draw slides, you will love them!
Cut it twice, and it's still too short!
