    ive been slacking on updating. So far ive painted the bottom with bed liners, fabbed up brackets and fitted a 72 bumper, painted the bumpers and valance with bed liner, and today i sprayed the hood, trunk, and mirrors Satin Black. Granted it was try #2 after messing up my gun settings

    I’ve been slacking on the updates. Still working on the 73. Installed 5 leaf springs that came with my 65 on the 73 as well as the new shocks. It was a pain and took me 2 days. Everything was so rusted I broke a bolt off the shock and had to cut the rear shack bolts off.

    Also pulled off the pass fender which was another pain as the cage nuts broke under it. Had to adjust the door, gaps, and striker to get it all straight. Also installed the modified bumper and front valance.

    Hood and trunk are installed. Intake and carb are installed. I need to hook all the wires up and fill her up with gas before I see how she runs. Once it’s running I’ll start installing the pertronix.

    Ive been sidetracked per usual. The 73 is ready to start but isnt getting fuel so i have to investigate a clog or pump issue. It does start by pouring fuel in the carb.

    Ive been building a small metal 10x10 shed which has taken my time and led me to needing a table saw. Well i have one that was my grandfathers. So now im fixing it up to use....and well its going to get an upgrade power wise.

    Its a Crafsman 1940 7" table saw

    Here is the before video

    Where it is at the moment. Im waiting on a pulley for it and then i should be able to get it back up in short order. Replaced the wood so far and bolted it down but i need to raise it up more to clear the grinder. I was going to lower the grinder but i have a piece of 2x6 i think will slide right under the saw easier

    SO the 73 finally lives again....Needs work still....Ive already got it smoking less and found a few leaks and issues with the throttle/choke setup

    seems your table saw turns the wrong way !! Dangerous. The wood has to pull down by the saw.

    Horseplay I Don't Care. Do you?

    I just saw all the smoke and thought he needed a new blade.

    And never get you hands so close to that saw blade if you want to stay whole. The table is so tiny on that thing you are just asking for trouble. Build it into a large surface which will allow you to handle your work easier/more safely.

    There is a whole lot of wrong going on with that saw.

    The blade is actually going in the proper direction. Not sure why it did that to be honest. Im guessing because the blade is lowered too much and does go all the way through until middle of the blade

    I actually keep my hands a safe distance away. The smoke is actually the grain flying, its a ripping blade so it was throw saw dust everywhere..

    I do agree, i need to make some extensions for it but its good for small projects. Nothing major at this point but i probably do need a new blade

    Still the blade turns the wrong way IMHO

    Per the saw manual.."Direction of rotation must be clockwise when viewed from pulley side of saw." The pulley side would be the back side

    i did notice that according to the instructions my rip fence should be on the other side though lol
