Default Antique Craftsman TS

The attached pictures were posted on anchorage.craigslist.org a little bit ago. They want $500 for it. I'm not in the market but thought some folks might enjoy the pictures.

Can anyone identify it?

Yea, 500.00 would get me several items I could use in my shop, but if you're an antique collector of old tools it might be a good deal. Any idea how old?

It looks like the saw that idiot on Youtube got going with his foot.

Generally speaking, you wouldn't want to pay more than half the cost of a comparable new item for any antique tool, and then only if it is in excellent condition. This TS doesn't seem to be in what I'd call "excellent condition" so using that set of criteria is worth maybe $50, certainly not $500. Just an opinion on my part.

No Jerry.. Their post read "I can't tell how old it is and neither can Sears." but then they probably don't know how to scour the 'net. If you or I had it, I'm sure we could find the answer but that would never happen. With rstermer opening the bidding at $50, he'd outbid me for sure!

That could be Mike, after all it has an unknown lineage. Maybe if it was serial number 1 and previously owned by Sears himself, someone might pay it... but not I.

Now if it was a low serial number of the Unisaw and all of the original parts were there, it'd be gone in an instant.

Now Jim, don't misquote me, I didn't say I would open the bidding at $50, I said it was worth no more than $50. I'd probably be a non-bidder well before I reached that figure, though I do love a challenge . . .

I believe I saw the same saw at a garage sale, they were asking $50. The interesting thing is that the stand looks identical, also. Could that have been a stock item from Craftsman?
