I’m looking at a Craftsman 137.228210 table saw on Craigslist listed for $200. Description says “rarely used”. I can’t find anything about this particular model and I’m wondering if anyone can tell me something about when they were built, etc., etc. Worth $200? Anyone have one? How do you like it?

I wouldn’t do it even if new. You’d be better off with a cast iron saw with a belt drive induction motor. Odds are good that you can find one for near that price range in your area. Where are you located?

Located in eastern Alabama, can easily to go Atlanta.

CL/Atlanta also has a Craftsman 113.298720 for $275. It is older, all cast iron. Looks decent.

That one should be good. Has the better fence, and is a full size saw…other motors, wings, fences, miter gauges, etc, will fit or can be made to fit easily. Lotsa potential….get it aligned, get a good blade. Decent blades start at $30 (Irwin Marples, Freud Diablo)

some decent saws in your area:

also has the better fence – http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/tls/5921883214.html
another – http://atlanta.craigslist.org/eat/tls/5950903599.html
this one’s high, but could make an offer – http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/tls/5937656828.html

Good luck!

Thanks.

So is $200 to $300 a good price range for these old saws?

Can be…depends on the fence, condition, wing material, extras, etc.

The $275 might be a little high. Sold mine for $150 2 years ago. I had upgraded the fence to a Exacta Rip. Around Minneapolis they are about $75 to $200 depending on condition. Good saw will serve you well for years though. Dan
