There it is. On the bottom I used oak slats to give it stability, put new 1 .5 hp leeson motor on, replaced both platic adjustment wheels with metal wheels, piwser coated table and wings everywhere that doesn't touch wood. Just waiting for Fence and then I can mount power box. It purrs like a kitten. New Machined pulleys from In Line, new link belt, this has turned out very good. Even replaced the Craftsmen sign on the front. I'm happy as could be.

Now just need to get the fence and finish the table underneath the extension.

Did you get the PALS from In Line too?
Also, another thing you might want to consider is adding some grease fittings to the arbor housing......this will make blade raising, lowering, and tilting very easy. Several years ago I upgraded my 113 with pulleys, PALS, link belt from In Line and the owner sent me a video on adding grease fittings to the arbor housing. Over time you'll get some saw dust build-up which will make blade raising, lowering, and tilting more difficult. The grease fittings will make this process really smooth and easy. Some will say that the grease will hold dirt and dust but I had to disassemble mine recently to replace a bearing and the arbor shaft had grease on it but no grit.

These things are money pits....actually they probably aren't really because most of you guys would probably have a good idea of how much everything would cost and what all needed to be done...as for me I had no idea. Lol by the time I'm through I'll probably have really close to a grand in this...anywhere from 900 to 1000. I don't mind because it was my dad's, and I think when I'm done I'll have a better table saw than most anything I could have bought new for 1000, or at least close to...I think. Lol

You're getting up into the price range where you can get a decent contractor's type saw but the new one would have no sentimental value. Whether the new contractor saw would have as good a fence is debatable. Normally only the cabinet saws come with top of the line fences.

yeah I'm intentionally not looking into it. I glanced at the Grizzly page and got depressed. Only thing this one runs on 110 and most in the 100 to 1500 range seem to run in 220.

But your right. It's sentimental. Plus I iverbuikt everything, so it's a brick **** House. I'm happy with it.
