Bought the table saw from Craigslist site. Stripped it down, primed and painted the accessories first, then the big parts. Put new bearings in the arbor, the old one's were froze up. I hadn't changed to many arbor bearings before, but this arbor seemed a bit odd; there was a steel pin that held the blade holding pulley on, and had to removed to get bearing off the arbor, drive pulley side was normal.Got the bearings from Polytech Design on E bay. Craftsman part # 3509. Saw came with two cast-iron extensions, but I only put on one to conserve the space I have. I made another Steel Extension with a plexi glass insert I cut out for a Craftsman Router to fit. The height of the Table Saw is adjustable, as you can move the legs up or down, I've got these set at the lowest height; It seems to me these legs were a poor design and a bit spindly for the weight of the saw, as they just didn't seem very sturdy, but what do I know, they seemed to work fine, worked for 65 years so why should I complain. The saw also came with a well made double track plywood slide to cut picture frames and 45 degree angles; I tried rubber wheeled caster with threaded stems, but they didn't work out, as it was a terrible idea, I couldn't hardly move the saw at all. I then made a 2 X 4 & metal frame and put flat mounted steel caster wheels, and problem solved, saw moves nicely now. These old saws are very heavy, especially if you have to change wheels, so I used my son's motorcycle jack, jacked the saw up a foot, and wheel change was a snap. I will later replace two of the steel wheels with locking ones.
