old Craftsman table saw

I have an old Craftsman table saw(103.) by King-Seeley (8 or 7 1/4"). It is a very smooth running, cutting saw, but it has no fence, any suggestions?
I also have a 10" craftsman 3hp that I am going to install a delta T2 fence on. I am setting up a wood working shop and am looking for suggestions on the best way to lay it out. I have all the tools except the thickness planer and belt/disc sander, that's coming soon.

Those saws have a flat front edge to the table which most aftermarket "T" square type fences will bolt to. You might want to build the saw into a table with a right side extension, and the fence can mount to the saw and the extension. There are various lengths available for the rails to those fences.

What do you want to do with the 8" saw

Set it up as a second saw? Use it for specific operations like dados? Other? If you can swap the fence from the 3HP onto the 8" then that may work. Another choice would be a bandsaw fence, shorter, available from after market sources like this:
http://www.amazon.com/Kreg-KMS7200-Bandsaw-Fence/dp/B0007VYL48Or this:
Finally, a home made version from square tubing and or angles have been done with good success. A bar across the front is needed no matter which way you go, for the fence to clamp to a square itself up, a valuable feature.
As far as shop layout, that's a 4 page answer... too much for a simple answer here. Again do a net search for shop layouts. Grizzly has a shop planning software tool, if I recall. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
