Looking for a used table saw on the cheap and came across this old craftsman. It’s a 12” model. The ad says it can be converted to 110v which is what I need. Can it? Looking for any useful info! Thanks.

If you can get it cheap enough it will be a good saw. You will need to put a good aftermarket fence on it. Craftsman never could figure out the fence war the glaring weakness in their saws.

He’s asking $40 plus helping him unload his new saw. It doesn’t have a fence as is. My main concern is converting it to 110v.

$40 is probably worth it just for the motor… and why would you be concerned about switching it to run on 120v? The diagram is right there on the motor and it only involves moving a couple of wires around and putting a new plug on the end of the wire.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: Keep in mind that you will need a 20A circuit to run it on 120v if you do switch it.

My garage is set up for 120v/20A so that’s what I need. Not an electrician but I see it now. Does anyone now the model, manufacturer?

Most likely made by Emerson, which made most of those vintage C-man table saws. Closest I can find is the model 113.299131 which is very similar in appearance and control placement. Is there a serial number badge on the saw? It should have the model number stamped on it.

Cheers,
Brad
