Default Craigslist Find - Craftsman 10" Table Saw

Man, this reminds me of one my dad had as a kid. What should I offer on it? Needs to be cleaned up, that's for sure.

Nick, these cheap direct drive saws are not worth much; in the condition shown maybe $50? If it was a belt drive it would be worth a good deal more.

Trend Tool and Bit Cleaner works wonders on rust like this. A quick spray, lightly scuff with ScotchBrite and then wipe clean with a towel.

Hi Nick

I would get it .it's one of the older ones with a belt drive and cast iron top, with a little bit of clean up should come out nice..but I would say more like 125.oo because of the clean up job and paint job that's needed..

I was thinking of offering $100, it's abouit 45 minutes away. But it would be great to get for that price. I've read some mixed reviews on them though, seems there was some trouble with the motors (from a longevity aspect)?

If it is a direct drive, then I would go with Mike at $50. If it is a belt drive with the work that has to go into to it, I would offer $75. He said he got it for free, so he wins either way. Going by the plate, I would say it is a 1/2 hp motor. ( 14 amps ) which is sufficient. Good luck, around here they average in that price range.

that is a belt drive in 1HP..
the motor is sleeved (no bearings) so figure on a new motor...
by the general condition I'd suspect the arbor bearings...
up grade it to a 2HP motor...
75$ figuring the motor is toast or will be soon...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Hi

I have a Old Atlas table saw (about 59 years old with same Fac. motor) and it's has a 1/2 HP motor and it cuts every thing I want or need to cut.....how many times do you rip 2 x 4 , 4 x 4 stock on a 45*.....

Stick is correct, the motor is rated 1HP. However at 14.0 amps, that comes out to 2.15HP input power. Not sure you would do a lot better with a new 2HP motor. That said, the saw is about 30 or so years old. In its condition, I would be concerned about the trunnion being equally rusty. Check to make sure the elevation and tilt work smoothly. Bearings in both the motor and arbor may be suspect as well. If everything moves freely, it probably worth $75-100. I not I would pass on it!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Ok, I happen to own a similar Sears saw, early 70's belt driven as bobj3 showed. Mine has the web cast wings, and mine says Commercial grade,,baloney ! The motor could not be re-wired for 220. I question even 1HP Sears way of rating that 1HP. Well it did just OK, (bogged down quite often),,, flusterating . The motor finally quit. And as Stick stated ,,,I put in a much bigger motor size wise & 1.75 HP. That made this saw completely different. That blade hummms. COMPLETE DIFFERENT SAW.

Hi Nick, the first thing I would do is slip the belt off and try to wiggle the arbor front to back if that feels OK, rotate it and feel for roughness. Do the same for the motor. Some of these old saws look rough from garage wear not from use at all. Stick is right the motor is roughly 1HP (a single phase 115v induction motor = 16Amps full load) which should be OK for most work. Motor sleeves can be replaced and do need occasionally need oil. As long as the sleeves are not allowed to wear excessively they will last for years. If the sleeves wear and allow the armature to drag, the motor will burn up. $75-$100 OK/fair price. The arbor may also be sleeve bearings and will require oil.
