As Christmas is fast approaching and I do not need any more robes and slippers I figured i would do my own shopping.
Added a Vega fence to my old craftsman saw. Easy to install only had to adjust the rear rail, needed a new hole and had to cut out a slot for the spreader.

and a PSI dust collector.

Smart purchase Ed. Even a fairly mediocre saw can perform wonderfully with a top quality fence on it.

Only did a few test cuts with fence but happy with it. Still checking both side of blade with ruler but this is well aligned and does not seem to need readjustment like the old fence.:smile:

Very worthwhile and cost-effective improvements. A setting holding and repeatable robust fence is vital for working with the table saw.

Worked with the saw and new fence today and I am happy with it. I was a little hesitant about putting the fence on a $65. saw but I guess the old saying is wrong. You can make a silk purse out of a sows ear:laugh2:
