Title: Here's my old Craftsman tablesaw
Post by: pritch on July 31, 2011, 12:58:59 PM
I got this from my dad-he had it as long as I can remember. I thought he had changed the motor once, but after looking at it, I think that is the original motor. It's a craftsman, at any rate.

Enjoy:

Oh yeah-one time I was driving down the Interstate and I saw this blue tarp that someone had lost. It's for a Miller welder, but it works real good for the tablesaw:

I would like to restore it someday. I think it would last another 50 years or so if I did. I have no idea how to find out any info on it.

You might have to hunt around a little, but they have a ton of information and would also like to have pictures and information about your saw.

If you need parts I may have some for that model.
