I bought this Cast Iron craftsman Table Saw Model 113.298240, 40 inch from a yard sale about a month ago.
I had been looking for a saw with with a belt drive motor for a long time.
I have the Newer Direct Drive Aluminum top version of this table saw.
Came with all the bells and whistles of the time. Even had a Extra Fancy miter gauge with built in clamp!!!
AND IT RUNS!!!lol....
Gave $75.00 for it...was a steal....Came With Original Manual..!!!!
I have been so busy of late, I had to store it away till I could work on it.
looked at it every day...just killed me that I had to leave it alone and not tear into it.
SO now I'm Caught up...look out saw here I come!!!!!
So here's the poor rusted critter on the work bench. The stand is on the floor by the door.
Wont be using the stand. Has the original Motor on it.
So Last Wednesday I tore into the saw....Poor Thing Never Knew what Hit It...
The trunnion, arbor, guides are all in great shape!!!
So Wife says "You Cant Work On It During Thanksgiving!!!!"
So My Reply was "Bah Humbug" and I wore my "GRUMPY" Shirt and Hat both days in Protest!!
So Here it is Setting in the Sun. The cast iron top is still soaking in oil waiting on final wire brush and wax
and the table extensions have new primer. New belt and pulleys, new bearings and grease.
And put new bearings and grease in the motor.
The thing squared up really nice. The Heeling of the trunnion to the miter slots went fine.
Thank goodness there were no problems there.
That Extra fancy Miter Gauge was a pain and the fence was easy.
So that's what I've been up to.
My goal in woodworking after making a lot of people happy with wood things...
Is to built a 1700's Bonnet Top Highboy chest Victorian legs and all.....Just because
I want to.
