Craftsman 137.219800 tablesaw
Hi: I just saw your questions from awhile back. I also have the same saw. Maybe we could make one saw out of two. I am in need of a fence for my saw. Or, my motor is good, what could we do together? I am located in Wisconsin, close to the Mississippi River. I am not a great fan of direct drive saws either, but this runs so smooth that i would like to use it for a backup or low use saw. Most direct drive saws are very noisy, but not this one. If you're still looking for a table saw, I would recommend keeping your eyes open like on Craigsliist, etc for a belt driven 10" saw that is not Craftsman. (Unless you can find an older one that is cast iron) The quality they sold in the past 30 years has really gone down hill. Keep your eyes open for like a Delta, Rockwell, Boice Crane or similar. Let me know what is up with your Craftsman.
