The initial buzz of finding it is kind of wearing off. I m leaning towards sticking to reconditioning my Craftsman and waiting.

If you already have a working saw and don’t have a pressing need – I would pass and wait for one that is more complete and in better condition. Don’t know where you are, but I see used PM66’s show up every now and then for well under your estimated restore cost above – in way better condition and with lots of extra goodies included. Unisaws for even less. Patience pays. To me, that PM66 is worth $100 at most, given it’s condition and lack of ‘stuff’ :)
