I’m looking for my first table saw and found a Rockwell Model 10 Contractor saw (model 34-348) on Craigslist. I’m having trouble find information about that specific model. Also, this saw has a closed base which is different than a lot of the Model 10 saws.

It looks like a 1970’s model from the “peace sign” symbol on the front. Head over to owwm.com you’lll probably find all the info youd need. erplacementparts.com is a good place for parts and manuals as well.

Buying a saw of that age would probably require some new arbor bearings maybe motor bearings as well. $50 or so. I see them go in my area for around $200 – $300.

Welcome to the gang.

If it’s usable as is – $150 tops. In used contractor saws, $200-$300 should get you cast iron extensions, a better fence, and maybe a few ‘extras’. -Jack
