Yeah, go for it think of the money he will have to shell out to rip a
decent lumber with the old crappy fence. I agree he get the TS beside
"other tools" for a hundred bucks. But, how many of the tools can he
use, without repairing or replacement parts?
Well, seeing as how I seem to recall reading all the tools work,
and nothing about what kind of fence the saw has, they will probably all
be usable. I've got a B&D drill I've been using for about 29 years.
B&D sabre saw, same age, just died a couple of years ago. B&D circular
saw, about 21 years old, still being used.
As far a not being able to make a decent cut with the "crappy"
fence (at least I think that's what you meant), no prob. All it takes
is some fiddling with the fence, and aligning it with the blade. Any
time I use my fence, that's exactly what I've got to do, and I can make
accurate cuts, just takes me awhile longer than if I had a fancy (read
expensive) fence. I'd be very happy to find a deal like that, and
upgrade my present saw.
We've got a lot of experience of not having any experience.
