Probably be gone quickly , but thought I would share it with you anyway : )
I would grab it myself if I didn’t have two of them already !

Definitely a steal for someone needing a saw but not minding doing a little housecleaning.

That said, once I upgrade my contractor saw to a cabinet saw, you wouldn’t be able to give me a contractor saw again.

The motor alone is worth the $25 asking price of the saw.

NiteWalker , I went from a Delta benchtop saw to a JET left tilt cabinet saw…Talk about night and day !
I picked up the two old Craftsman saws to refurbish and resell. I probably would have grabbed this one as well , but my car is out of commission right now. I might keep one and leave my dado set up in it , depending on how smooth it runs.

Wow… this was my first saw! A circa 1958 or so model. Though mine had the engine-turned face panel and a slightly different base. These were for 9” blades, and a 1/2 arbor.. well mine did anyway. The more I look at the pix, I realize mine did not have the 3/4” X 3/8” slots, mine were like 5/8” wide. Mine may have been a lower-priced saw, but it is quite a nostalgic old saw to look at. Thanks for posting!

Hi poopiekat, the two that I have are both 10” saws , but one has a 3/4hp motor and the other has a 1.0hp motor , both from Craftsman…one is painted gold/bronze (model 100) like this one is , and the other is gray with the fancy grill that you referred to. They both have cast iron (web)wings but the model 100 also has an outfeed table with rollers in it. Pretty cool for ancient history : )

Thanks, Dusty! Yeah, mine must have been a cheaper model. What did I know? I was 15, and the neighbor had it out for sale. Love that bronze finish! Mine was more of the ‘hammer-tone’ finish, not sure what exactly the era was. Are you getting good service from yours? Wish I had one of those in my shop!

Mine are waiting patiently in line for me to finish restoring a vintage Powermatic 60 8” jointer.
They were totally functional when I bought them…just need a good cleaning and some rust removal , and then I’ll check for any other issues : )

I’ve seen a lot of them recently with that base / stand under them and thought they were kind of scary , but now I see bolt holes in your photo. Thanks : )

I guess it sold already , DIY !! Your link doesn’t connect.
