Default Used table saw advice

Just found this on Craigs List and was hoping some of you guys could weigh in on this. Looks like an older model and has cast iron table. What do you guys think?

Delta 10" Table Saw

I found another TS with no motor. Guys wants $50 for it. It's a craftsman model number 113.299040. I'm trying to find some info on this one, he had no picture posted. Talked to him on the phone and he say's it in great shape, a very heavy TS. just needs a motor (which I have one that might work)

It looks good to me. If you can get a chance to check it out be sure to bring a combo square so you can check out how square the blade is to the miter slots. Also measure the miter slots to make sure they are 3/4" wide otherwise you find it almost impossible to find miter bars for various jigs or have to resort to making your own.

As for the sears, I can't find that model number (doesn't mean it is wrong, just means I didn't find it.) If you can get a picture of it, this site might help Old Wood-Working Machines (OWWM) - Welcome.

Here's the owners manual for the sears saw, about 1970's vintage

OWWM - Craftsman - Publication Reprints - 113.299142 / 113.299040 / 113.299470 10" Table Saw Manual

and a picture
OWWM - Photo Index - Craftsman - 113.29940

When I moved into my current house, the previous owner left a similar saw (1973 edition). The bushings in the motor were so bad that I swapped it out with a Harbor freight motor for $60 or so,and a fresh belt and it ran great. It's still running strong 6 years later at a friend of mine's house.

The one thing to look for is that the extension wings are solid (either cast iron, stamped steel, aluminum, etc), I personally don't like the open grid type.

Hopefully you will be able to find a splitter or guard arrangement to replace any missing ones.

Much better than me at searching

If I read the plate right on the delta saw it is a 34-570 DeWALT ServiceNET - Official Online Store for DeWALT, Porter Cable, Delta, and Black and Decker Parts should be the parts diagram. There is a thread on Lumberjocks about this saw that didn't make it sound good in the part I read. Helping fixing an old table saw. - by matt0852 | LumberJocks.com :: woodworking community

I would recommend some how figuring out how to attach a riving knife to either one. I haven't looked at how it is attached to my new saw but it seems to help prevent kick backs or is at least supposed to. I do know that my old menards cheapie table saw didn't have one or a decent splitter and I wish it would have. Lack of one is what drove the new purchase this year.

If not able to attach a riving knife I have seen a plain splitter attached to a lot of home made plates for the opening around the blade. Don't know of any links right off hand, but if you search for zero clearance you should be able to find examples.

Be careful with the craftsman, if the motor you have is not right I wouldn't recomend it. He is probally selling it because he priced out motors. I have a craftsman TS and it works well. My motor went about 5 yrs ago. For what Sears wanted for a motor I could have bought a now saw. I ended up buying a different motor but is still cost me $700 which was expensive but still less than Craftsman.

Thanks for all the good info guys. After I posted I found the old wood working machine site and then found the craftsman saw, that's a great website for info. Waynoe, $700 for a motor. Was this a motor for a cabinet saw? 3 phase? I would think I would be able to find a suitable motor at Grainger or maybe even Harbor Freight (I think they sell Baldor motors) cheaper than going through Sears. I'll probably go look at the Craftsman saw this weekend, good idea about checking for squareness and the miter slot size.

The Delta saw should have no problem with accessories. They have not changed design much over the years until current cabinet saw. That one in the picture is a contractor model. I would favor a Delta over a Craftsman. Turn it on & make sure it works. There are adjustments to true up a saw incase it is out of square.

Just found that Sears doesn't sell the motor I would need any longer.

Hi Jake - Looks like a nice saw at a pretty good price. I really like the infeed area.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
