I put a 240 Volt single phase 2hp motor and a vega utility 50 fence. I built a pair of extensions out of some oak and MDF I had laying around.

The saw it a TOTAL beast. 8/4 oak has not even made it breathe hard and the Vega fence is fantastic!

I can see this saw lasting me a long time…but as I said before, I’m about 560 bucks into this saw. I probably could have gotten a used cabinet saw for that price.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my Craftsman, but if I knew the what I know now, I would have kept it as is until I was ready to buy something bigger.
