    New Workshop - Need lots of good advice

    Thread Starter: Alan Lightstone

The home we are purchasing is near the beach, so is built up to withstand hurricanes. In fact, it's built to withstand Cat 5 hurricanes, and is easily...

    Replacement for old Craftsman Table Saw

    Thread Starter: Mike Geig

    Howdy, I have an older Craftsman 113.29730 contractor-style table saw with extension that I inherited from my grandpa. I have it on a rolling wooden base and so far it has treated me very well.
