Hi Guys,

Let me see if I can clear a few thinks up. First of all, I could have had Craig make me a new frame from scratch but I am one of those people who like to try to bring old things back to life. Case in point, I once got (and still have) a 1960's era Craftsman table saw for FREE. So I add the PALS adjustment system, new Incra Fence and mitre gauge, zero clearance inserts, new motor, overarm blade guard, new v-belts, new safety switch, etc. With the money I put into that saw, I probably could have bought a new or slightly used Delta or Powermatic cabinet saw. I am not saying what I did was right, but that was my decision and that saw has served me very well for almost 20 years.

Yes - the Hi-Tech frame needs a lot of work but I certainly don't think it is bad enough to scrap and even if I did, someone else would have probably brought it back to life so it may as well be me (I mean Craig)
