The following link is for a table saw I came across on CL. The seller sent me a message that said It’s a craftsmen not sure how old or what model. It is in good shape and was used for cabinet making.

Can anyone possibly help with some advice. I’m in the market for my first table saw.

Thanks for the help

I think early 1960’s….round about. I think $300 might be a little high. you would want to make sure it has a belt drive and I think this one does. Cast iron table, fence and miter gauge are a must. I think this is more than this saw is worth although it is in better condition than some I have seen on Craig’s list and on this site.

Not impressed for the price and age…keep looking!

I recently bought a mint 8” version of this saw for $40. $300 is laughable. I MIGHT pay $150 IF it came with lots of accessories and ran flawlessly.
$100 or less is more realistic.

Edit: upon closer inspection it appears the saw might come with an ultra fancy fence. If so, $150 would probably be an ok price.

I agree, I would not pay that price, for that saw, you can do much much better for that $300
