Been needing an accurate table saw for a while, budget is limited, saving for a wedding. FRUSTRATED to no end that i have to use the cabinet saws at work to do any work for the most part.

Found a Craftsman table saw on craigslist Model # 113.298031.

Looks to be in decent shape, says it fires right up.

Check the Craftsman section on OWWM.COM, search for that model number.

Is this it?

I’ve used these a little and their decent saws. If the fence is sturdy and square and the top flat and the motor runs well…and the price is right you probably can’t go wrong for a first saw.

That’s a basic Craftsman contractor saw. From the manual on VintageMachinery.Org it looks like it came with steel extensions and of course a bad fence. I have one similar. If it’s stock, it will need some work and upgrades before you will be happy with it. Based on this and the quality of new saws in the $400-500 range it’s worth between $50-$125 in running shape with no upgrades or extras. -Jack

If that has the motor out the back I just sold mine. I had it for about 20 years, I put a craftsman xr2424 fence on it and built a cabinet and out feed table for it. I think they are good saws, I was just ready to upgrade so I got a Sawstop PCS and sold the Craftsman to someone for his first saw.
