This is an older craftsman bench saw that is like 1 3/4 HP with a belt drive. I found the plans on a old wood magazine issue (i think). But it addresses a couple of good storage issues plus it makes and ‘ok” saw pretty good. I built it for a buddy. Love the storage

I am impressed. I have an old flex-drive that I am desperate to make more useful/or at least more of a pleasure to work with.
You made good use a a space that is often overlooked for storage.

Nice work Ken. I have been thinking about redoing the cabinet for my Craftsman 100 (a little older than yours) and I really like this design. What is behind the white board? I am assuming saw dust catcher, but what to make sure.

Nothing wrong with an old Craftsman. A stand makes them much more useful. I can’t imagine how I made-do before I built mine.

Ken, this is a nice upgrade to the saw that markedly improves its functionality. The sheet metal stand that is on these saws is pretty flimsy and has no storage capacity at all. This is a major upgrade to the saw that should add years of service to the tool.

I like the pull out pegboard alot! It appears to keep tools and materials organized and in plain view, versus rummaging through a drawer or cabinet. Sorry, I’ll be stealing that one!

I have a Ryobi I got as a Xmas present 4 yrs ago. Not a very good saw and already worn out. I was looking around for a used saw and asked an old contractor friend for advice. He offered me one of many unused saws and I accepted. It is old but used very little. It is a Craftsman Model 113.298720-10” and twice the weight and size of my Ryobi. I would appreciate any comments pro or con and information on upgrades.

Thanks
Fred

Hello,
I have the exact same saw and was wondering if you had any further info on where you got the plans for your cabinet.

Thanks,

Skip
