I have an old Craftsman Vintage Table Saw, with Cast Iron Top, any ideas on how much it would be worth?
I need the space that is why I am thinking of selling it.

I just bought a 113 (Emerson) model for $85 on Craigslist two months ago. Came with better (craftsman) fence and some accessories.

Not to be a smarta$$, but as the old saying goes, it’s only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. It would be hard to tell you that it’s worth $xxx, since it might differ in your location. I would suggest going on Craigslist and doing a search. That should show you what comparable saws are going for.

I picked up an used cast iron top belt drive Craftsman in my area (Atlanta, Ga) for around $135 last year. It replaced a Craftsman aluminum top direct drive one that I purchased new for $165 (and sold for $80). I loved the aluminum one (it had a better fence), but it was just too light. Too easy to tip over. That cast iron one DOESN’T move! LOL

I’ve got an old Craftsman 113 (about 1985-6) that I got new. I completely re-built it a few years ago with new outfeed tables left and right, and a new Delta fence and rail system. Had it this way for several years now. A friend of mine offered me $225 for it. I wouldn’t sell it cause I use it to cut dados and rabbets with, and keep my UniSaw open for other work. It’s like Joe said, whatever someone is willing to pay.
