Hey guys and gals,
For his birthday, my bro (http://lumberjocks.com/Pyamed) got a new table saw and so he’s giving me one that’s been passed down a few generations (my great-grandfather purchased it). I can’t find any info at all regarding the Craftsman 113.27531 and was wondering if anyone had run across a similar or the same model. My dad estimates its 50s-60s era.

Thanks!

Dan – Is there a digit missing in the suffix? 113 indicates that it was made by Emerson, who I believed started making Cman saws in the 60’s….King Seeley preceded them.

I believe those are the only digits. It does clearly say Craftsman on the unit.

How ‘bout a picture or 3? Let’s see the top, front and back. We probably have someone with the saw here. I have a 113 series, late 70s model. If it’s 113, it’s gotta be an Emerson.

One site: OWWM – oops! now Vintage Machinery

Looking at their submitted pictures of machines I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the part number you gave. For instance, I see a 113.27520 in the Craftsman publications.

Regardless, the Emerson saws from Craftsman didn’t change much over the 30-40 years Sears sold them. I have one of these saws dating from the late 60’s to early 70’s – 113.29901. Love it! Still going strong.

So even though my brother swore up and down that the saw was a 113.27531, it was actually a 27521.. an almost 60 year old machine with original motor.

Did you find this on OWWM?

Should be real close.

Thanks for the link.. sorry about reviving a 3 month old topic. Now that I have the right model number… There are a lot of resources.

This is the saw—even has the same base and clamping mechanism. The wings, however, are like this: http://vintagemachinery.org/photoindex/detail.aspx?id=9537
