Thanx everyone for the responses I got on faux patina for my barnwood projects. The jury is still out as to which is going to be used.

I got my dad’s Craftsman 103.22171. It’s a really neet piece. It came with the universal stand. I have seen it refered to as a “goldie” cuz I guess most came in a silver or gray but mine was gold painted with a goldish face plate. It’s been cleaned and painted [not original]. It came with a 1/2 hp motor and now has a 1 hp with a link belt and a 8.5 inch Diablo with an arbor adaptor and it works HWEET!! My question is, I am still shopping for some pieces for it but don’t know enough about it to know what fits [like extensions especially but also fences, splitters, guards, etc, etc,] and what doesn’t. What new upgrades would be possible or beneficial if any!!! I don’t know how all these things measure up to each other…... Are all 103 pieces interchangable or???? Any comments or suggestions or trivia would be greatly appreciated. Thanx everybody!!

Is Craftsman 113.22171 the complete model #? I’m getting zip with that.

if it’s like this saw:

http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/222/5457.pdf

it’s probably one built for sears by king seeley, not emerson electric:

http://vintagemachinery.org/craftsman/manufacturers.aspx

i’d bet that internals aren’t plug and play between it and sucessor saws built for sears by emerson electeric (113 series saws). that said, if the table is 27” deep, almost any CI wing could be drilled to fit the TS table. if you’d like to pursue that, i’ve got 2 webbed CI emerson TS extension wings i’d be wiling to part with.

regarding accessories, it’ll probably accept a delta T2 or vega 40 fence and should be a very capable little saw.

Parts from similar saws should work, but there’s probably not much else that’s standard….is it 27” deep? If so, there’s potential, but if not, it’s in non-standard territory. You’ve got a good blade, a bigger motor….you could always add a link belt if the current belt has any vibration issues. You could also build an outfeed and some extensions. A fence is possible, but could prove expensive to fit a full size fence to a smaller saw.

I looked at your PDF toolie and it it appears to be identical except the shrouding is slightly different. Thanx, the pdf answers a lot of questions. Vintage Machinery has some actual photos of the 103.22171 in both the silver/gray and gold versions. Mine sez Simpsons-Sears- Limited-Canada. The table specs measure 25-3/16ths deep by 22-3/16ths across
