I've been hanging around and mooching tips and tricks off of you guys for a while. I guess it's time I step up to the plate and introduce myself. Nobody likes that creepy guy hanging around right?

Hi, I'm Matt. I'm not much of a woodworker to be honest, but I am pretty good at making sawdust. It's a shame I have no idea what to do with it. I'm great at starting projects, but not so good at finishing them. As far as tools go, I have my Dad's old table saw he got a few decades ago. The bearings are going out so the blade has a little wobble in it, which is extremely inconvenient. I also have his old jointer. No the infeed and outfeed tables aren't co-planer and I can't figure out how to get them co-planer, so I make frequent use of my lunchbox planer to make things flat again. I guess you can't complain when it's free right? Also have a lathe, which I love playing around with. It's small, but loads of fun.

Enough for now. Just wanted to pop in and officially say Hi.

Welcome !!!

Welcome to the forum.

Bearings should be easy to find.
I replaced the bearings on my vintage craftsman a few years ago along with a new blade shaft.

Installed an aftermarket fence and it sings like a bird. :clap:

I've considered replacing the bearings, but it's an old Horror Freight table saw and is probably 20 years old, if not older. I'm considering saving up a few bucks and getting a better one. I'd hate to start replacing parts and wind up rebuilding the whole thing and spending $500 on a saw that doesn't cost that new. It needs some other work too, but for now it'll get me by.
