I do regular volunteer work at a furniture bank. They have a Kreg Foreman, about 18 months old, that failed. When you plunge the drill bit, suddenly the power would shut off the motor. We determined the problem to be a broken wire underneath where it pivots. One of they guys called them and they acknowledged it was a known problem and would send him "parts." Yesterday, a whole new machine showed up. If you have one, you need to know about this before you throw it out.
Craftsman #113 TS decommission Yup my old buddy is retired for good. Sort of. About 40+ years ago I got it from Sears as some kind of defect. Some kind. I can't recall what was off about it. Damaged box? Over time it got a new rip fence and I made a heavy steel miter fence for it too. Anyway I mounted it on a frame and ran the daylights out of it up until some years ago when I got a Hammer K3. The old TS served as my metal cutting saw for a while and eventually I got a better option and it's sat silent ever since. So I took it apart today. Ahh the memories. That saw never bit me. Trunion is off, cast iron top is off, The sheet metal body remains and I have the aluminum side table too. Now what to do with it. I built a large disc sander from a honkin huge aluminum jig plate disc that goes on my lathe but I never built the table. I'm thinking of sawing the cast iron table in half to lighten it and get a long flat section and using that. So then what about the trunnion? What do you do with an old TS trunnion?
