Default older craftsman table saw

Some of you might have seen my other thread http://www.routerforums.com/tools-wo...table-saw.html
Im thinking about replacing my benchtop, direct drive table saw with a larger contractor saw. I found this older craftsman saw at a pawn shop that I frequent and wanted to get opinions on it. It has cast Iron extensions on each side, and a shop-build table on the right made of laminate covered plywood. the rip capacity has been extended to approximately 60 inches. It is missing the blade guard, so Id have to find one. the rip fence seems decent and locks down well. it comes with a miter gauge that you grip and it clamps down on the workpiece. the model number is 113.298761. heres a pic. I can get it for 225, and might be able to avoid sales tax since its on consignment. they have been sitting on it for a while and are motivated to sell it

I think the price is about $100 too high.

Check with sears to see if you can get parts for it. I wouldn't give more than $150. for it.

A person can never have too many tools!

Hi Jason


If he will not come off the price of 225.oo I would sugest you look on
craigslist: denver classifieds for jobs, apartments, personals, for sale, services, community, and events for a little bit newer one..with a good spare tire.

Price has come down from 300. Guess Ill keep looking although it seems that there is never any kind of selection in my area of saws unless I want to go to Chicago, and those people want an arm and a leg for them.

The price may be just a little high but one thing you have to consider is it has a wide ripping capacity. a big work table and the blade is toward the back of the saw the way it should be. Personally to me that is worth something more in itself. Because even if you found a cheaper saw it probably wouldn't have that wide of a rip without purchasing the pieces to be able to do that.

It's certainly a lot more saw than the one that was gifted to you in an earlier post you mentioned. Plus for about the same price or less you wouldn't have to do anything to it because it is ready to use the way it is.

One more thing, lets consider craftsman new saw they have out with a 3hp capacity. This thing is a piece of junk in my eyes and it cost more than the one you are looking at.

I think considering your situation as far as finding one because of your location the price is not cheap but within reason.

BJ.
For many that is probably a great saw but for me hands down if I had the choice of paying $117 for the new sears I posted on sale and the used one Jason is looking at I would buy the used one.
The reason being is the table size, there is no plastic, the fence is longer, it has a 60 inch rip capacity and if you wanted to make a miter sled or any other cutting sled the blade is back far enough so you can. And besides that setting up a saw to rip more than 24" like many are can cost well over $150 in accessories to achieve it.

I may be a little old school but I like the older tools. I recently worked on a job where I used one of the new dewalt table saws, kind of like the sears one maybe better. But when I got home and worked on my big all metal cast iron saw there is no comparison for me.

It's not to say that he may not find something cheaper but when everything is there that you want and it's a fair price why not.

It seems that Im going to spend at least 40 bucks on the blade guard assembly that is missing from the pawn shop saw. Assuming 225 for the saw, another 20 for tax (if I have to pay tax) and 40 for the blade guard Im now at 285. I think Im going to try to see if the owner of the pawn shop can call the owner of the saw and see if He has the blade guard laying around. if i can get it for 225 out the door I think Ill buy it. 285 isnt going to happen
