Finally working on this mid 1950’s Craftsman that I have had for probably 25 years, Saw is running good now.

New Harbor Freight 1/2 HP motor, Link belt that I had drastically reduced vibration the saw had running the old motor that was about 50 lbs heavier. That may have been an alignment issue I’m not sure. It is running without any vibration now. This small saw has quality not found in what is being offered for sale today. The Harbor Freight motor has ample power, the wiring diagram that came with it is somewhat useless. It took me 3 tries to get it wired correctly.

That looks like my Dad’s old 8” Craftsman saw from the 60’s, only difference is a lot of old-school features like the turned fence lock lever and curved frame. It’s all sitting in a box waiting to tell me what it wants to be….

Nice refurbish work Gary!

Searching my old stuff I finally found the old miter guide, matching knob for this saw. Also did a little work on the stand.
