Found this saw a couple blocks away. He said it needs a new motor. After I get it out of the trailer this weekend and cleaned up I think I will replace the cord that has the plug cut off of it and look at the connections because the motor looks very clean and new.

I’ve literally only spent time loading it and taking a few pictures of it. Am I right to assume it’s a Craftsman?

Looks like a 1950’s model to me. Cool score!

I forgot to add, the handle things are Mesa Vista Design Roller Guides.
I’ve got the instruction sheet here at home but I can’t wrap my mind around it without the actual guide in my hand. I know they are magnetically attached to the table. Must be some sort of feather board thing.

I put my very old delta/rockwell contractors saw out on the lawn the other day with a free sign on it say ing it worked. Lasted about 15 minutes.
I could have put it on CL for $50 but this was easier. Sorry to see it go but new saw and no room. I wouldn’t use it anyway.

Def a craftsman. Youre missing the bottom badge.

The stand is kind of interesting. Are those pedals im seeing or a moving dolley?

It’s a cast iron stand. What you are seeing is junk on the floor of the trailer and the in-floor tie-down rails.
I love the stand but i’ll have to see how stable it is. Seems like a small stance to me.

I’ve spent hours looking at images of Craftsman 80 saws but I don’t see any with a tubular fence system. Aftermarket? (other than the Grip-Tite fence plate)

Yes, the handle things are magnetic work guides I think mine are Grip Tite. Hit the handle sideways to remove. They hold well and don’t slip.

That’s awesome, looks like quite the fun project. I’d be willing to bet the motor just needs to be gone through and cleaned up to work properly.
