I have an old craftsman table saw. I am trying to find out when it was made. I found a series and year code but am not sure what it means. It is 88305P1269. Does this mean it was made in 1988 or 1969 or what ? Can someone help ?

If you post a picture and the size (8, 9, 10 inch, etc.) someone can probably narrow it down pretty fast.

Many companies made Craftsman stuff over the decades and I doubt there is a code database.

From what I can remember, it means the mfg date would be the 305th day of 1988.

Thanks BK, now I’ll have to look on my Craftsman lathe and see if it has a number like that.

Boy my Craftsman saw must really be old since the numbers are in Roman numerals! chuckle
