Odd size lumber

I never really wanted a table saw, but a few years back, my Dad got a new one, so he gave me this old prehistoric Craftsman 9 inch. I felt compelled to take it, for sentimental reasons I guess.

I have probably used it ten times. It really is still in great condition, probably dates back to the early 70s, late 60s. I have a craftsman 5 1/4 circular hand saw that I truly use for 90% of the things I do.

I guess every once in a while, firing up the old table saw and ripping thick boards that seem like 100 feet long lets you know you are still alive!!!
