Craftsman Table Saw


Brother gave me a Craftsman 10" tablesaw he acquired by gift for helping his friends parents move. They say it is about 15 years old and it is driven by a flexible shaft of some sort. Never seen one before. The saw looks little used and in pristine condition. Will this type of drive hold up under a heavy work load and if not would it be feasible to convert it to a pully driven system?

Try a few cuts and see what it can do. Consider a table saw tuneup. A good table saw will have a good fence. A pulley drive is better, but a quality fence is a lot more important.

whether the cost of conversion will be cheaper than selling this one and buying another. Also consider whether the converted saw will do the job for you.     mahalo,     jo4hn
