Where's my serial number?

Hey all,

I have an older craftsman ras and I'm trying to find the s/n for the recall site. I'm done with this saw and want to put the recall money towards a mitre saw. I found the plate with the model number and there's a mfg number but I'm not sure if that's the s/n. It has the same mfg number on the motor too. I can't imagine my s/n is only three digits. I've been all over the saw except I haven't pulled the table yet. Does anyone know where the s/n is located? I've attached pics of the two plates I found.

TIA,
Joe

The plate clearly states that is the Model Number.
The MFG No. is just below it: 470



Disregard any numbers on the motor, they do not matter as it was made separately.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

When I visited the recall site in the past, they wanted the model #. I just checked and it appears that is what they still want.

The OP was asking about the serial number which is not needed in most cases. When I spoke to them on the phone they also asked for a serial number IF I recall. Here's the wording on the link:

IS YOUR RADIAL ARM SAW INCLUDED?
1. Check the saw - Is your radial arm saw a Craftsman®?

2. If so, check your model number.

3. Click here to enter your model number and order your box.

I'm going to guess it's the 470.

From my experience with craftsman power tools the serial numbers often have a decimal point ( . ) so abovd number is likely correct.

My 2 cents. Don't buy a craftsman miter saw. I don't love mine. It works and has held up for plenty of cuts but i dont feel it's perfectly square and ive tried adjusting the fence with no luck. In fact i feel the fence is a about around 1 or .5 degrees bent from one side to the other. Probably didnt help that it was on sale. Dewalt amd bosch seem to .ake great miters though.

The 113. ....# is the model #

I did as you did. Send in motor for $100. (Actually 12+ times)

The big difference in what I did, was that I bought a much better ras. Mine is a Dewalt 7790, 12" saw. A world better than the CM.

For the price of a decent ms, you can buy a good old Dewalt, or Delta ras, that do a lot more than a ms, or scms.

The difference in a CM (even the better older ones) and my Dewalt (and older Delta's) is huge

I kept my old saw, until I made a table for my new one.
You can always turn in the CM ras later for the $100.
