great saw and a great deal. that saw carries a lifetime guaranty against manufacturing defects, regardless of ownership. what that's worth on a 10+YO saw is up to you. dual voltage 1.5 hp motor, herc-u-lift mobile base, CI top and wings and a mico adjust feature on the center rear trunion bolt make adjusting the miter slot to blade alignment much easier. here's the OM:

also, the tips in this video series are great for restoring CI:

BTW, the fence rails can be easily slid to the right for increased rip capacity, provided you don't mind losing the use of the front rail tape. 36" of rip capacity is easily achieved.

i have an entry level model of that saw (ts 2412) and have added CI webbed wings, a herc-u-lift and a version of the OEM fence with longer rials for 36" of rip capacity. i really enjoy using it. the fence is every bit as accurate as the t2 i have on a related c-man 10" contractor saw.

enjoy. that saw will do almost everything a hobbyist needs to do. properly cared for, you'll pass it on one day.

there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

splitter

I'm almost done cleaning the saw up. Took a break to restore a hand plane that I got off of ebay just as a project. Anyway, the saw did not come with a splitter so I was looking at one of the micro jigs. The blade I bought (http://www.lowes.com/pd_45386-281-18...les&facetInfo=) does not specify thin or standard kerf and I'm not experienced enough to eyeball it. Does anyone here know?

As far as the micro jig, would I need the standard or thin kerf splitter? Thanks.
