I reached out to the owner, but he says he can’t remember anymore and the sticker is gone. I want to know if this machine is any good before I waste a trip to go see it. Thanks everyone

That is a Sears 22104. The 22104 was the original entry level model of what became known as the Craftsman “zipcode saws” that came out in 2004…the 22114 and 22124 were the other two. They were made by Steel City’s Orion unit.

The 22104 has the same cabinet mounted trunnions as the others, but has steel wings vs cast iron, a simpler fence, no dust collection ramp, and a simpler miter gauge. Basically entry entry level.

I used one for about a week at a HfH house build I volunteered at back in 2012. It was looking a lot like this one. Rode hard and put away wet. I would give maybe 50 bux for the saw. Now that fence system they have on it may fetch more $$$$ than the saw though.

I think the biggest limiter to spending much on them will be around parts availability, what with Sears current state of affairs, it is best to presume parts will not be available for long, should it need them.

Thanks. I take it by your “ridden hard…” that it struggled to keep up with what you threw at it. I didn’t know the maker was out of business. Even if everything works. Seller says everything works fine, but something could break after I get it home and fixing it would be a problem. He says he’s closing his shop and that’s why he’s selling so it might have been ridden hard. Seems like you can’t find a decent deal on used stuff anymore. People want to buy new but don’t want to eat the depreciation.
