My Dad gave me his old table saw a few years ago. It is just sitting in my garage. Someone told me it is old and could be worth some money. Can someone tell me were to find out? It has everything including dado blades. It is operational. I bought a new saw two years ago, so it is just taking up space.

Thanks for your help!

I have the exact Craftsman model table saw. It has been passed down to me by my father from his father. It is in great working condition except for the fact that I cannot find a nut for the arbor to tighten down the blade (ASE or metric, left or right turning). I am considering finding a machine shop to re-thread the arbor bolt to a size that I can easily acquire should the bolt ever be lost again.

You were the only result I found to my queries concerning this saw. The saw has a metal plate with the model number engraved on it, but no date. I'm curious to know if you happened to find out any information concerning this model table saw. I would love to know more if in fact you gained any further knowledge.

I'm would also like to know if your saw has a motor outside of the table saw housing with a serpentine belt turning the arbor shaft? Or perhaps this was something my father had rigged at one time.

Would love to receive a response from you. I registered to this site just so I could chat with you about this machine.

Thanks for any help.

I noticed that you posted your message four years ago. What astonished me about the posted date of your message and my reply are EXACTLY four years apart to the date of June 10th.

Hope that's a good omen.

Reply if you can to original message.

FYI -- I have inherited my father's Craftsman/Sears saw (103.22161), too! You all had asked a couple of questions:

1) You had asked for the date -- as near as I can figure, he bought it around 1960 +/-.

2) The belt driven motor is an original feature -- mine has that too.

In theory, Sears still sells replacement parts so hopefully I can get a fresh one, although my father probably didn't use the saw since 1962 and the belt that is on there now is "ok", but it will probably break as soon as I turn the darn thing on.

Good luck with yours!
