I have a restored Craftsman 10-inch tilting arbor bench saw, model 113.29940, late 60’s I think, any idea what this would be worth? Works fine, many new parts, looks great … Need to sell it to make room in the garage … thx!

if this is the saw:

it depends on where you are and what it has, as well as condition. here in the NYC tristate area (where NY/NJ/CT come together), they go, completely stock, for $25 -$100. add-ons like CI extension wings, mobile bases and new fence systems will increase the selling price to about a max around here of ~ $200.

It depends a lot on condition, completeness (blade guard, miter gauge), and any extras. I see them near us in the $50 to $150 range regularly….most sell closer to $100 if in decent condition. With CI wings, and an upgraded fence, they go for more.

A pic would answer a lot of questions.

I’ve bought two higher quality vintage Craftsman saws so far this year. One for $20 and the other for $35.
Both had cast iron wings and original fences and miter gauges , with one of them actually having a second miter gauge…An Incra !!(with standard and extra long extensions) : )
One had an outfeed table with rollers. One 3/4hp and the other a 220v-1hp motor…several attachments and saw blades and metal stands….. I think I did alright : )

They are seen daily on CraigsList around here for $40-$150….mostly families getting rid of “Dad’s” tools.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Have your say...
