Very good Todd, I like the cubby hole for the extra accessories, and that’s
an awesome miter gauge.

here are the ones i currently have:

2 emerson electric built 10” CI contractor saws and a refurbished ‘72 unisaw. in a 12×20 shop. just a little tight these days.

and as you can see, i don;t believe in filling in the webbing. never caught my fingers and it provides great resources for clamping feather boards.

I’ve got a Shop Fox W1677 left tilt 3hp cabinet saw….it’s essentially a white Griz G1023SL. Bought it new in 2008 for $903 shipped to my door thanks to the Microsoft Cashback rebates. I’ve added a BORK riving knife and blade guard, Osborne EB-3, Jet Xacta II fence with router fence attachment, and a router table, and have slid the front rail tube over to the right for a 36” rip capacity.

”Dang Scott, Microsoft cashback, how the heck did I miss that. What was that anyway?”

MS wanted a piece of of the search engine action, so while launching their Live.com search engine website, they offered incentives to many online purchases to people who originated their search through Live.com. Ebay was a participating site. The incentives varied periodically, but reached a max of 35% briefly, and stayed in the 25%-30% range for quite a while. There was a 60 day delay in receiving payment. You were allowed a max of $2500 cashback total, and $250 per transaction…I played it for every penny. It was a pretty sweet deal while it lasted. As much as like my saw, my favorite purchase was a Lowes $500 gift card on Ebay….bought below face value for $494 with proceeds from the rebates from my Cashback eligible purchases…I received an additional 25% Cashback on that purchase, then combined it with a 10% HD coupon towards a patio door from Lowes.

Live.com is now known as Bing.com.

I thought this is a 113 forums. The cabinet saw folks really shouldn’t post here as it make us 113 guys feel bad…..
OK, I don’t really care.

Todd,
That fence looks like a “Align A Rip” or the X/R 20/20 fence? How do you like it? What are the pros & cons?
There dosen’t appear a whole not of write up on those new craftsman table saw fences.

Muleskinner – That looks to be an Excaliber fence, but am not sure what saw you have….is it an older Grizzly 1022, Bridgewood, or Mao Shan TSC-10?

Bandit – so far it looks like you and I are the only ones who realize why they’re called table saws.

Scott – you’re right about the fence (48” right side, 24” left side). You also know your saws – TSC-10 it is.

There dosen’t appear a whole not of write up on those new craftsman table saw fences.

as todd indicated, it’s a ridgid ac1036 fence system. ridgid sold the system primarily so that TS2412 and 2424 owners could upgrade from 24” of rip capacity to 36” of capacity like the old “top of the line” ts 3612. i have one of those 1036 systems on a 2412 (got it for $20 on clearance @ HD years ago) and, although i have a NIB fence system for a 3612 (which i got from ridgid gratis), i’ve stayed with the 1036 because it is dead on accurate and does what i need it to do. i even prefer it at times to my other emerson built TS’s t-2 fence.

Right on toolie….the AC1036 is really a fantastic fence. I have loved it since the day I installed it and that was @ 10 yrs ago. Never felt the need to upgrade.

I just wanted to share the older Craftsman TS I bought used from a lady in the mountains near Morrison Colorado.
When I first contacted her it was dead of winter and she kept postponing because of the snow up her winding road to her house. Finally there was a warm day and I took a drive and made it up the snow packed drive. She sold it to me for $45.00 – Although that deal almost cost me much more as I was backing down her drive and almost went over the edge about a 30’ drop.. Almost..
The Craftsman is the model 113.299315, 1 1/2 HP, Steel wings and Align-A-Rip Fence. I cleaned it up and tuned the saw and was a happy camper. I then upgraded the fence to a ShopFox Classic, $100 CL find, Link belt from HF, and Cast ribbed wings from CL $30. And a new Power Cord to allow a left hand switch mount. All in all its a great saw and it is mine for $175 and the enjoyment to refurbish an older saw. I am still debating on if I should upgrade to a newer Hybrid or older cabinet saw to restore. Bullethead, seems like we both have about the same taste in wood working tools, Great topic.

They are 3 hp, a Grizz, a PM66 (waiting for a 800.00 restoratio) and a Unisaw.

When the PM66 is restored and in service, we will keep Uni set up with dado, the PM66 set up to cut lumber and the Grizz set up for plywood.

Nothing special. A $125.00 CL find. Came with a Vega Utility fence & Herc-U-Lift mobile base. I have upgraded to machined pulleys (& PALS) from In-Line Industries and a HF link belt. I also mounted a DC shroud to the bottom, hooked up to my HF 2HP DC.

knotscot, not trying to hijack the OP’s thread, but with regard to the MSFT cashback program, back in the day I used to buy gold coins on eBay and get the cashback on it. Gold coins are about the best return on investment you can get, so I’d buy ‘em, resell ‘em and break even at that point, then a while later I’d get a credit from MSFT for an extra 30%. Gaming the system FTW! Too bad they put an end to it, probably because of guys like me.

Yep. A 113. table saw with a properly upgraded fence. Mine is also a 1990s product. I paid $75 for the saw and $160 for the fence. Its all the saw I need. Works so well that I don’t think I could justify replacing it with any current contractor saw. I’m planning on keeping this one until I have enough funds and/or room for a decent cabinet saw.
Oh and like Hermando, I also installed a longer power cord so I could mount the switch on the left side of the fence. Much more conveinient location imo. Leecraft zero clearance inserts (model CR1 I think) are also a very nice, inexpensive upgrade for these saws. I have two.
Additionally, I used some tiny spring clamps to hang a trash bag under the saw. Very crude, but it actually catches a considerable amount of sawdust. And since the rear of the saw is wide open, the bag also serves as a secondary trash can. LOL.

There are quite a bit of deals on Craigslist for table saws, and mostly for the belt drive craftsmans 113. I have debated on buying an extra for cheap that someone has not appreciated, and keep it for parts or resale after refurbishing. I had three table saws at one point a friend gave me an older Makita 2708 that I had Makita Service install new bearing and brushes. It was a great little saw with the drop in table/fence and 24 inch rip capacity.
I gave this little beauty to a friend who has a growing family and a young son with disabilities. He would otherwise not be able to afford a saw to do his DIY. I also have a Dewalt DW745 that I bought for a wood flooring project. This little beast is awesome and I would recommend it to anyone that needs portability or space issues. Its powerful and accurate. Only draw back is it does not accept dado blades like its big brother DW744.
