New to me tablesaw
Ok, so this thing isn't "new" by any stretch of the imagination, but I think I can make it a decent saw with some work. I hope anyway.
It's a 1989 Mao Shan TSC-10L that I paid $25 for...delivered. It wasn't originally going to be delivered, but after driving 42 miles to the guy's house last week and not having him answer his door, I grabbed at his offer of free delivery today.
It's missing the motor, motor mount plate and motor support bracket, insert, miter gauge, blade guard and the fence rails. I believe I have a 1.5 HP motor I can use, and I'm sure I can fabricate a bracket and plate. I'm hoping the miter from my Delta will be usable, and I don't care about the blade guard. I would have been making zero clearance inserts anyway, so that isn't a big deal, and I plan to make them with a splitter/riving knife insert anyway.
I know these aren't high-quality saws, but the larger table than my old Delta, the bigger insert opening, and the externally mounted motor made it worth a small gamble to me.
My wife says I never finish anyth
