Nice! Are you going to put shelves in the miter station or in close it at all, to keep saw dust out?

Saw your blog. I’ve had the craftsman saw for a LONG time. I have to double and triple check my fence for accuracy. Built some ferral cat houses with it a few winters ago. Couldn’t figure out why I was 1/4 inchoff when putting all the sides together. good thing the cats aren’t critical LOL.

The 3 hp motor? 1.5 hp. Thought it was 3 hp when I bought it. Ebay has parts. There is actually a belt you can buy from Harbor Frieght to reduce vibration on this saw.

It also requires patience and attention to sharp saw blades or you may experience a significant slowing when cutting.

I’m still in process of putting equipment together for my shop that has become a storage place for too much extra building materials.

Good luck on your journey!

Oh yeah, clean and lubricate. Especially if you have high humidity. “wax on, wax off”
