I started this project in May and have finally completed it. I was given an old Craftsman 12” direct drive saw from my father-in-law. The saw had been outside under a tarp for the last 3 years. The top was rusted and the gears were full of saw dust and gunk. The trunion was completely locked up.


I disassembled the saw and started with cleaning the gears. It took a couple of hours, but afterwards it worked wonderfully.

Next I began sanding the top. It was in pretty rough shape when I began.
