I hope you live longer than your bearings!

Perhaps the best thought I’ve ever seen in a woodworking forum.

I think that is the thing a person finds when playing with “old iron” It simply was made better, out of MUCH longer lasting parts. Even the lowly Sears .113’s are made like tanks. Early 80’s and I was still working part time at Sears, and I sold a bunch of those saws. I think going through life flipping tools quite a bit I saw many of them again, and most were wearing very well 20 to 30 years later. That would be a wonderful thing to see in today’s plastic patch.
