+1 Jay...The fence is a PITA…I owned a 113.226880 for 20 plus years. It was reliable, never had issues until the last year or so when I was getting a lot of arbor runout. But the fence was pretty much a pain the whole time. I didn't feel too much like dealing with the arbor bearings (if that what caused the runout) and so I bought a new saw. I sold mine to a Craftsman fanatic. He was prepared to upgrade the motor and fence. Mine was in excellent shape, no rust and had all the original parts…

Aside from the cramp in my neck from looking at your photos, from what I can tell the saw appears to be a great condition…lol. Tough call between the Craftsman and Hitachi. I know the new Porter Cable has the plastic gear, the Hitachi may have the same since they are pretty much identical
