Those can be a pretty good saw with some tweaking. They were built in the USA by Emerson for several brands and are solid saws. I have one and really don’t feel the need for anything bigger. It works great for 4/4 stock and the occasional softwood 2x, though it would be underpowered for someone using a lot of 6/4 & 8/4 hardwood.

That looks like an Align a Rip fence in the picture, and I have never used one of them. It is probably better than the base factory fence you see on a lot of this style Craftsman, but I don’t know how it compares to a T2 or similar upgrade. Hopefully someone with experience with the Align a Rip can chime in.

Price isn’t too bad. The 113’s of that vintage with the crappy factory fence pop up around here for 125-150 pretty regularly, with occasional ones in the $75 range. If the fence is a keeper, it would easily be worth the asking price.
