Does anyone have an idea of what model saw this might be? I am thinking it may be the predecessor of the 21833, but I am not sure. Any other information or ideas anyone may have would be great as well. Thanks!

There should be a tag somewhere that has a number like 123.45678. You might find it back by the motor. This identifies the manufacturer and model . The numbers are consecutive, but it may change for a pretty minor change, sometimes as simple as a knob change or ?

After a bit of research it appears to be the 22114. The reviews I have found seem to be pretty good, 1.5 hp, cabinet mounted trunions, etc. There was some discussion about the fence, some liked it and some did not, but I have a 36” bessy on my delta TS300 right now, so I could steal that if needed.

Anyway, at $95 it seems that it is worth looking at. My only fear is the “you get what you pay for” rule. I am hoping the price is a function of the rust, and someone not knowing what they are selling, rather than significant issues with the saw.

It’s definitely a 22114 made by Steel City/Orion (model #152.2211400). That whole line of Sears hybrid saws enjoyed a pretty good following….the current 22116 replaced the 22124. I’d definitely put the Biese fence on it if you’ve got it. The solid cast iron wings are worth the asking price of $95…price seems like a steal. If the motor runs, it’s worth something. The current fence is worth something. Basically, I don’t see how you can lose at that price if it’s not totally trashed. The rust should come off fairly easily.

nice saw. looks a lot like a CI topped ridgid 4511. for $95 or less, i’d buy it if only to clean it up and resell it if i didn’t like it.

Hmmmm, a bit too far for me to run out and snatch it out from under you :-)

I am hoping! I just found it today, and it was put up about a month ago. I just hope it is still available. Still waiting for a call back….....
