Depends on your usage, I guess. That Craftsman is a solid saw with the right fence. Years ago, I put a Biesemeyer on mine and it did everything that I asked it to. I put hundreds of board feet through that thing and it didn’t even blink.

I get your waffling on what to do, IMO the rust on that saw isn’t horribly bad. The structure is essentially intact. If it was mine, I would pass….because I have a basement shop. But in your case if it’s off the truck and right into the shop, it’s doable.
