Topic tags/keywords: tool table saw

Having difficulty identifying this saw. Was told it’s a craftsman. No stand. Only pic is from the back. Can purchase for 75 bucks and owner says it works fine. I just havnt seen any extensions with this particular pattern. Any help would be appreciated.

I would believe it’s a craftsman, but no idea which one. I wouldn’t pay 75 for that in my area. Not sure where you are. I’ve seen very nice craftsman 113’s for $75. I would keep looking.

The price seems a bit steep. Doesn’t look to be in very good shape.

It could be a Craftsman by the fence and wing style, but, if so, it is a compact table. The insert on a full size saw like the 113 won’t go all the way to the back of the saw. I’d pass.

It is a older craftsman, i have a similar. This one looks like it’s poor shape, but looks can be deceiving. It couldn’t hurt to check it out and offer 45 for it.

Unusual throat plate with the squared off end… don’t believe I’ve ever seen one like that before. Might have some value, but IMO, it’s not worth anywhere near $75. As Bill said, you can find those C-man contractor saws pretty frequently for that price or even less – with a stand and in much better condition.

owner says it works fine.

LOL – they all do :)

Agree that the fence and one extension look just like I had on my Craftsman 113. Looks like the rear fence rail is missing and fence is set up on table backwards. That is an odd looking insert and switch (if that is only one) is in a very inconvenient location. Or, is that the saw’s front and motor is just hanging out front from the pulley?

Ok I bought this saw. 70 bucks
I was a sucker … The motor was so quiet and the no wobble whatsoever with the blade. ( checked when powered off)
The model number is 113. 242820
Darn…. Turns out to be an old 8”.
Is anyone still using these saws?
I’ve been working with an upside down Dewalt handsaw for the past few months and thought I’d get something a lil better .
I tried uploading a few second vid of it but this site isn’t loading it for whatever reason .

8” blades are hard to find. You can use a 7 1/4 blade or maybe an 8 1/4 will go on there.
