The saw you are speaking of is in my garage as we speak. I have
owned it and cut a lot of wood with it since I purchased it in the mid
80's. It has been a good saw overall, except for the inadequate fence.
I just went out yesterday and bought the brand new Craftsman line
cabinet style saw #0922124N with the Beismeyer fence, since I didn't
see the point in spending a lot of money fixing up this one. I was
also looking for more power as well, as the saw has a 1 hp motor. If
you can get the saw for $200 you are doing ok. I wouldn't recommend
paying more than that. Don't tell that to the next guy who might buy
mine though! HeHe! Good Luck on you saw!
