Some people have a bias against certain brand names…..never mind that Sears never, ever made a tool….they merely sold tools. Emerson was the maker of those table saws….I bought one brand new back in the early 80s….as far as I know, it is still running great…

Trunnion on the original saw split…..replaced that, and a better motor….and added two more extensions to the right of the blade. Used that fence for the entire time…only “upgrade” was an add-on wood strip, for dados…a shim between it and the metal fence as needed, to keep the wood part straight….

Sold mine a few years back..only reason was I no longer had any room for this big of a tool..


YMMV
