Craftsman 8” saws date at least back to the 50s. My dad had one. You will find 8” blades somewhat hard to locate. My dad’s had a 1/2 hp. Dunlap motor, and was belt drive.

Biggest weakness on those saws is the fence. Also, in cutting anything over 1” thick, we were always finding it underpowered, and it tripped the built-in overload quite often.

Can’t say I ever missed it.
