I wouldnt bother fixing a saw that is in sorry shape and you don t even really like. Look for something else on Craigslist. You can probably get a newer Craftsman 113/315 on craigslist, with a modern fence, for $150-200. Or look for an older Delta contractor saw.

If it can’t be fixed, I will keep this in mind—I never think of Craigslist for anything, but maybe that’s just because I’ve never found anything I’m looking for on there (yet!). Thanks!

And yeah, the old Delta contractor saw I borrowed from an old contractor friend was pretty awesome—that’s what made us so excited when DH’s aunt said she had this one. :-)
