Topic tags/keywords: craftsman 22124

I was at Sears tonight and on the way out I saw a Craftsman 22124 table saw on sale. It was a close out and the sales person told me it was the last one. It was $599.99. I made the purchase and now I hope I am not sorry. I was originally looking at a Delta 36-980, but it was $679.99 so I made the purchase. My wife was getting tired of hearing me talk about wanting a table saw and so I just pulled the trigger as I thought it looked like a good deal and the quality seemed pretty good. There were a few other saws there, but the quality did not seem the same. What do you guys think? Do you think I got a good saw for the price?

Was it a good deal? It has given me cause to hate you in a fit of jealous rage, hows that?
LOL, I think thats an awesome deal, at that price I would have snatched it up gleefully! Its a solid saw, you won’t regret it!

I agree, it’s a good price. When I was shopping last year I was considering it. I remember it got good overall ratings from owners.

Thanks. It looks like a bunch of good saws out there—each with pro/cons, but still good saws. Many of you know, once you pull the trigger on a big purchase you like confirmation that you made a good decision. None of us want buyers remorse.

it get’s delivered on Wed (it was the floor model so already put together). I just hope it was put together correctly. I will have to spend some time double checking everything.

Well, I agree it was a steal of a good price, I have seen them going around that price in CL used, as for the quality of it I also own one and have been extremely pleased with it’s performance.
Solid built and nice features all around you won’t be sorry.
Congrats and happy woodworking…..

You definitely took a step up. The only advantage the 36-980 ever had over the 22124 was price, and you just solved that concern. The 22124 is a really nice saw. With this purchase you got a better fence, bigger motor, hybrid design, better drive system, larger cast iron surface (44”w vs 40”), a saw that weights 4% more than the Delta (425# vs 300#), cabinet mounted trunnions, better DC, and a smaller footprint to boot! Get it aligned and put a good thin kerf blade on it, and it’ll serve you well.

You will not be dissapointed. I love mine and you got a hell of a deal on it at that price.
