Post Antique Craftsman Table Saw

I have a really old Sears and Roebuck CO Craftsman table saw. The number on it is 113.27521. I really want to know what it is worth . It is in great condition and works perfectly. Anyone have any idea?

Curoius, does it have a rounded sheetmetal top and made where the arbor and motor is on a tract where you can side it forward and backward?

Doesn't anyone know to search?

Just enter Craftsman 113.27521 and this will show up:

"really old" Craftsman models will start with 103. ***X or
109.***X

Makers of Wood-working Machines, Metal-working Machines, and Stationary Engines for Sears

The list below contains the known makers of the above-mentioned products only. For a more complete list of makers of Sears products, see the section "Sears, Roebuck Number Prefixes", below.
Sears Roebuck introduced wood-working machinery in their 1926 catalog, according to one source. Here is a list of known North American-based makers of their machinery with their model-number prefixes (some companies do not have a model-number prefix because they manufactured for Sears before they introduced the prefix system):
Nowadays, the machinery sold by Sears is made outside North America and hence is outside the scope of this web site.



What it's worth is what you can sell it for, probably around $125.00 or so unless it's been restored to the condition above...then who knows? Just list it on Craig's List with a $300.000 or best offer.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specfic. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo

I bought an old table saw at a flea market for $50. It looked like a bench version (add a motor), likely an 8" saw, as many were when that old. It wasn't sheet metal, but all cast iron and heavy as all get out. Never used it.

I have the same saw, and have it for sale now, for $125. It has a real clean top, and iron wings, new belt and motor pulley.
I would rather have this saw, instead of a under, $400 new saw.
If I didn't have an old Unisaur, which, is a keeper, I would put a Delta T-2 fence ($155) on it and have a good saw.

What's up with you wanting to know what people edit in a post?
I do it all the time because I was a bad at typing before I lost the finger now I'm worse. So i edit all the time. I must drive you crazy.

I'm assuming that they are like me either adding new info or correcting typo's they missed before hitting submit. To be honest if I wanted you to know what I edited I would have left it there.

Just messing with you guys as usual.

As I was writing this, a person called about the saw, and is coming to take a look. Reduced advertised price from $150, to $125.
Fingers crossed!

Hi,

We have a 1946 Builders Saw (109.22620) and are interested in finding replacement miter gages and new belts. Any advice or direction would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Don

I was considering doing a saw restoration. The saw I selected was a Craftsman 113.27520. I picked up 3 saws. 1 complete running saw with 2 cast wings and a stand for $25.00. The other 2 were less than complete, 1 ran and the other was a parts saw. I paid $25.00 for the parts saw and the other running saw was free. I changed my mind, I just don't have the time or the room to do the overhaul. Sold some of the parts and moved on.

I routinely see similar saws on Craigslist advertised anywhere from free/$25.00 to $300.00. Some of the saws are on Craigslist for months.

If you need to get rid of it, price it low and sell it. If you need to get every possible dime out of it, advertise it for higher and entertain offers.

Good luck whatever you decide.

One other thing, out of the 3 saws there was only one center front rail and one extension front rail that was intact. All the rest had an end busted off.

The belts, you can use automotive V-belts. I'm not sure if I ever had a miter gauge to go with my saw. I still have the motor but everything else has been disposed of. The mechanism that locks the fence down broke so I got rid of the saw.

Do you know why the arbor and motor was on a tract that slid forward and back?

That looks more like an old washing machine.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
