Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw table saw craftsman saw

I really hate to part with this but I’m trying to make room in my garage. I have three tablesaws and I’m letting this one go… a 10” 1 HP Craftsman Tablesaw. This tablesaw is old and very heavy. Thick Cast iron table top with steel side extensions. The paint is coming off from usage but the top and most cast iron parts were kept waxed so there is very little rust. I also just reconditioned the motor and it runs smoothly as you can see in the video below. I regreased the motor bearings and used a compressor to get all the saw dust out of the motor housing. I also cleaned all the contacts in the motor. This motor should have plenty of life left.

I have to stress that this is built really well. I have a Delta contractor type saw and this Craftsman is much much heavier. Even the steel side extensions feel more solid than the newer Delta. (they are reinforced with brackets.) The biggest downside on this tablesaw is the fence. The fence does work well but to lock it, you have to twist the handle instead of just locking it down. Also there’s no arbor lock to make blade changes easier.

Note that the sawblade shown in the video and images is not included.

I’m asking $170. Cash Only. I don’t know how much these things go for so let me know if I’m asking for too much.

I have a video of the tablesaw here:


The video is 4 MB so give it some time to load

Here are pictures of the tablesaw:

This is the Fence and Miter Gauge. The factory miter gauge was lost so this is the one I got to replace it.

This is the owner’s manual.

I think I’ll lower this to whoever makes the best offer.
$170 is probably too much since nobody is responding.

I’d recommend doing a search on ebay, craigslist, google, and see what these models sell for these days – yours look in great shape… so that would give you a ballpark range of prices. other than that – it might be a timing issue, maybe today nobody is looking for a table saw – but tomorrow 10 people would be on the search… give it time, and try different sites (Craigslist, ebay, lumberjocks, just to name a few)

I actually listed the tablesaw on craigslist for $170 and people e-mailed offers of between $5 (That’s right, $5) and $40. I saw on Ebay that similar tablesaws sell for between $120 – $200. I also saw that I could make much more on eBay if I sold just the parts. The cast iron top alone sold for $45 recently.

Have your say...
