I traded my MIG welder for this Craftsman 113.298443 TS. I really wanted a higher-grade TS, but did not get any offers to trade for anything better than this. I was struggling with the decision, but when I saw all the accessories that he included, I jumped at it. It has some slight rust on the top, but is in good shape overall.

Here’s the list of goodies:
Craftsman sliding miter table
Craftsman sanding disc
Craftsman Fence Guide
Tapering jig
Dust collection chute
2 feather boards
Craftsman Excalibur dado blade
Dado insert
Craftsman 60 tooth blade
Stand with 2 baskets and caster kit

-- I love my SS Mark V. American made quality.

Those are very good old saws. It will be well worth the effort to restore it. You will have many years of cutting with it. The first one I bought in 1976 and I still use it today. I have added a router table to one side and a large extension table on the right hand side, built a cabinet under to catch the dust.
