My advise is don’t do it. A1Jim is being nice ;-). Lets just say that era of ww’ing machines by Sears were not great.

I owned one of those TS’s lin the pic above and also a bandsaw. They were both pretty awful machines. As you already know that fence is horrible but I wouldn’t spend 2x as much for a fence the whole machine is worth.

My suggestion is keep an eye out for a used commercial grade saw. Or for for a little more money, something like the hybrid saw Grizzly carries. Guarantee it will be no comparision to what you’ve got.

And BTW I see those old C’man saws all the time on CL their almost always $100 or less.
