My table saw is nothing special. An early 70s craftsmen that a friends dad got for Christmas. He'd lost part of a finger on a table saw so he didn't want to have anything to do with it. It was stored in his garage in the original wrappers for 30 years. I got it for 75 bucks. I had to oil wetland the cast iron top as it had gotten wet and was surface rusty. I replaced the fence and miter with Incra replacements and added a rockler router table in place off the right wing. Put it on wheels so I could move it around. I wish I had in and out feed tables though, since I seem to cut a lot of plywood!

Very nice Tom, one outfeed table serves two saws. The centralized vac position is perfect.

Did you move your shop yourself or did you have riggers/movers?

John




I had regular movers (Mayflower) do the move. They rented a fork lift to lift the mill and lathe. I did the rigging with rollers and a machinery pry bar. All the rest of the machines were lifted by the crew and rolled on dollies to their new place.

Here's my saw - a Powermatic I bought new about 25 years ago, and several other machine tools.
All the tables and benches are the same height, so everything is an infeed/outfeed table. You can see a few crosscut sleds hanging from the ceiling. This photo shoes most of the shop that's behind me in my scope-and-tripod photo above.....

I see a scope, some ham gear, and a nail apron - looks like a well-equipped shop to me!!

I am almost ashamed to show this...but since this thread was re-born...

Not seen are the two small lathes in the background. One is a Unimat and gets used a LOT!

Tim,
they are a great little lathe!, But have you ever tried to turn a 7' lamp post to fit a Jaegger's mount?
Great things those skateboard wheels!
Wow just realised this makes 1000 posts! Only took a few years!
