hello fellow lumber jocks. i am still fairly new to this site but i really love the tips and advice that i get and the really neat projects that are displayed here. i just recently purcheased a used 12” craftsman commercial table saw ($65.00), which was a much needed upgrade. i am sure that it probly a least 30 years old, but it still works fine. to me one of the drawbacks of this saw is that it is a direct drive, but it as a hoss that much is for sure. it was al my son and i could do to lift that thing onto the truck for the drive home. it came with a bessemer fence and rails and the table is 51” long. i have a model number of 113.29930, and a mfg # of 1071 can any one out ther tell me when this saw was made. thanking all responders in advance, and ya’ll have a safe and wonderful day in the shop.

From what I can make out on owwm.com, the 113 is Emerson Electric (a very reputable manufacturer, esp. of motors). They have info for the 29920 and 29940… but I didn’t turn up anything for the 29930.

Kind of useless but I thought I’d post the partial results rather than just zip.

Looking at the manual for the 29940, I went to the same place as Webb, there is a note of a 1969 copyright on some tool safety stuff. I am betting your saw was made in the early 70’s, just like my Craftsman RAS, that I bought new in 1971. If that TS is made as well as my RAS, also made by Emerson, you got yourself a real deal.

I think I nailed it. If you go to the Sears site, you will find part diagrams for your saw, and the diagram I looked at was labeled October 1970.

Here is the link….......

I am still running a Delta 1990 vintage contractor’s saw. Bought it new just like the RAS. I can’t find a reason to replace either of them. A little TLC should keep that saw going a while. I think we wear out faster than some of our tools….............(-:

Great buy for a 12 inch saw. I need one like this at the same price.
