Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw craftsman vintage woodworking tool

Found this table saw online for $30 and need some help deciding if its a good one, or just a model that will be a pain to get rid of later. Any help would be much appreciated.

Get a close up of the Craftsman badge on the saw, that would help get you the year from the guys here.

Looks like a 101 model with an upgraded
fence from the 1970s or 80s.

Hard to tell much from the pics, but those hand wheels and wings are probably worth the price of admission. Is there a motor with a belt hanging off the back?

Not sure about the motor, I’m going to take a look at it tomorrow morning. But yeah the wings are pretty cool, which is why I noticed it to begin with

If the arbor and trunnions aren’t worn it’s definitely worth picking up. Is it a Unisaw? No, but if you just need to rip some wood and occasionally crosscut it’ll do the job.

Have your say...
