My first belt driven table saw
I just bought a vintage Craftsman "100" 10 inch table saw (model #:113.29992). I paid $100 and already have gone to the sears parts website and dropped $60 into it for two new bearings, a new belt, and a set of new arbor keys. The bearings literally went on its first use, but it was no surprise on a saw that was made in 1962 and sat unused for over 10 years. It has a stock 1hp sears motor. I am new to table saws in general and have never used anything belt driven. What sort of things should I be looking for as far as maintenance and improvements? Before the bearing went I could balance a penny on its side without it falling over while the saw was running. I had read online that this was a sign of a good quality saw. I think $160 total for this saw was a good price, but again, I really don't have much experience with table saws.
Cheers and thanks for your input,
