I just bought an old Craftsman band saw, and I am having no luck in locating a user’s manual for it. The model number is 112.23770. I’ve tried searching with Google and the model number, and came up with nothing. I tried calling Sears, but that was less than useless. There is a label on the inside, stuck on by the previous owner, that has a date of June 12, 1967 on it. It is a stand alone model (not benchtop), and the wheels are 18” in diameter. Can anyone offer guidance on how to get more information about this machine?

Look on the left for publications and reprints. Sears may still support this model. There are much older machines out there still running.

Good Luck
