Topic tags/keywords: table saw craftsman tablesaw model 100 cast iron ts tool power tools

Craftsman model 100 cast iron belt drive table saw
I was told it was from the 1940-1950s

Works great

Includes
2 cast iron wing extensions
Metal frame base
Miter gage
Locking fence
4 super heavy duty casters
10” Dewalt multi purpose carbide blade (well used)

I believe it is a 1hp motor but I’m not positive

I’ve used this saw multiple times per week for the last 2 1/2 years. Only selling because I’m downsizing my shop and have to make some space.

Asking $250 OBO

Pickup only I’m about 30min east of Dallas

That might be a tough sell in your area… Just did a quick CL scan and there are a LOT of saws being sold around you for a lot less.

Cheers,

Yes, but this one is cared for, turned and true..

plus most of the craftsmans on CL I saw are later models (not as well made) and also missing extensions, etc.

the casters alone are a pretty penny.

But everything is negotiable..

I will be interesting if your theory works out. So many people just look at price. Harbor Freight is doing great and expanding because people are looking at price and not much else.

If your area is like my area – people are almost 100% price conscious.
For some reason, they ASSUME total quality on every item, so yours just gets lumped into the other ones for less money.

Even at garage sales, people assume it will work like the day it was bought, and they still think it is worth only a dollar. Just this economy.
Good luck!

Yeah its a disposible society we live in for sure..

The only reason I’m even parting with it is due to downsizing my shop (not by choice)
I’m almost all hand tools these days anyways..

Hey Jordan… it think it’s more of a case of most people just seeing a 70+ year old saw, and questioning it’s value and continued longevity, when a much newer saw can be had for less. They don’t see value in a vintage machine like some do. You might want to post an ad over at the OWWM site where those types DO exist in great number :)

Cheers,
Brad

I can barely make out the front panel, but I think that’s a vintage 1960s saw. I’ve paid as low as $20 for a nice one with a Craftsman stand and the Sears ‘POWR PANL’ switch. Not to insult you but most people see that as a hundred dollar saw. Why they would go buy a plastic unit for twice the money is beyond me, though.

Because of the other perception, that “newer is ALWAYS better”.
