I’m seeking a manual for a 113.299130 Craftsman 12” Motorized table saw. It has a 220V, 2 HP (develops a maximum 3.5 HP) motor. The saw motor’s output shaft is the saw’s arbor, and was given to me. I’d like to put it in service to replace my current 113 model 10” saw. It’s missing a few parts that I can tell, like handle knobs but it seems to be complete.

I find it a bit humorous that Craftsman identified this saw as “motorized”. It would be hard to get the blade up to speed with a treadle. I’m guessing that was to distinguish this drive from the belt drive or other drive systems that Craftsman offered.

I appreciate any help you kind, knowledgable folks can offer.

Not sure how similar this one is, but here’s a link http://www.manualslib.com/manual/32791/Craftsman-113-24181.html#manual

As an FYI, Sears did offer a foot powered 12 inch band saw back in the 1930s. It was called ‘The Trainer’ and was manufactured by Parks Woodworking Machine Company. It had a bicycle pedal setup and chain drove the pulley. Treadle powered lathes are nothing unusual.

knotscott—I went to the link you offered and found a 113.299131 manual—it’s probably the same saw I have with a different accessory package. Thanks for the link.

dhazelton—I’ve seen human-powered lathes before, and while I’m sure they exist somewhere, I’ve not seen a human-powered table saw yet. I’ll have to check out “The Trainer” though—sounds interesting.
