Craftsman Table Saw

Recommended Posts

As I start using hand planes more, I realize I need to replace my worktable with a better workbench. To make room for that, I need to part with the old table saw that I haven't used since my wife surprised me with a SawStop one Christmas.

This is a Sears Craftsman built by Emerson, model 113.298762. I have upgraded the fence, replaced the original pulleys with machined pulleys, replaced the belt with a link belt, and added the PALS precision alignment system for adjusting the trunnion. It does run smoothly.

If anyone in the Warrenton, Virginia, area is interested, I am asking $250.

That looks like it came from the same assembly line as my Rigid 24241 saw. Very nice machine for the price, even without your upgrades.

Excellent looking saw and a great price. When was it manufactured? Craftsman has a reputation of changing some parts from the OEM product. When the Craftsman parts are gone, you are outta luck. BTW, got this from a Craftsman contract manufacturer of power tools.

Bankstick, I think the saw may have been made in 1995 (I am pretty sure it was in the mid 90s, and the first two digits of the serial number are "95", so maybe?). 

wtnhighlander, hah! The label may be a bit of an exaggeration. :lol: That's "max developed" HP all right. It plugs into a regular 120V outlet, so it's not quite the 3HP a 240V motor would be. :)

I inherited a CM tablesaw from my late father-in-law. The motor burned out and it was cheaper to buy a new one than replace the motor.
