Thanks Guys…...........Wife passed last year and all I have left are 5 cats and two hobbies, aquariums and wood working….....the two fit together nicely if you build your own stands, etc. I do have good blades, Freud and Forest, for the Ridgid and it does cut pretty well, but it still has the same limitations that any portable saw has.

Yeah, I’ve seen the craigslist recs on other posts and there is merit to that approach from a $$$ perspective. At this point in my life not sure I want another hand-me-down…......I already have one. Don’t know how much improvement and safety I’d gain by building the old saw into a bench with a new fence. In the end it’s still the same saw. I may take a look at CL just to see what’s out there. Maybe I’d find an offer too good to pass up. I can spring for a new saw if I choose to go that way, just not sure if it’s money well spent at 65 yrs. old.
