My mom has my dad’s (was my grandfather’s) old table saw. Someone is interested and she wants some idea what to ask for it.

It’s a Craftsman 113.27580 3/4 HP motor. It’s in remarkably good shape and I believe runs fine. Grandpa was a machinist and apparently knew how to take care of his tools. This TS spent 30 years in Houston TX, pretty humid place, but as you can see not too much rust.

Appears to have original fence and miter gauge.

Any ideas what a fair price would be?

I would say a hundred, but it has a nice base and those extra cast pieces. If it runs and cuts good and the trunnion moves easily go $150.

I had a newer 113.298xxx that I tried to sell for $150 and had no takers. I parted it out on eBay and made more than $300. I even shipped the POS stock fence to some guy in Alaska. I still have the “3-hp” motor.

I have a nearly identical saw, bought it for $75. And because it’s a matter of perspective, I like the ‘POS’ stock fence. The saw you have for sale includes three table extensions, with only one being ‘right.’ That said, it’s a solid tool and anything $125+ would seem fair. My .02, worth half what you paid for it. :-)

Thanks for the opinions. Just needed some idea what to ask for so we didn’t give it away or ask way too much. Someone already said they wanted it and asked my mom how much she wanted. I’ll suggest she ask for $150 and be willing to go down as needed.
