I found this 1964 Craftsman 100 bench saw in Johnson City, TX on a 350 acre ranch that used to be a turkey farm going back to the early 1900's to restore for a freind. The saw was listed on the Austin C'list and when I went out to see it in the old covered turkey barn it was on the Craftsman original metal stand, had the original Craftman 1-HP motot on it, both waffle type optional extension wings,the original miter gauge and rip fence set up. The PO owner who made some very nice rustic type cedar funriture told me he had done some work for someone who gave him the saw in payment, the old lady who gave him the saw told him this tabel saw belonged to her deceased husband and that he had bought it brand new at Sears in 1964. This Model 100 was just dusty and had hardly even been used over the years by the PO or the new owner who just had it set up not running with the arbor pully not installed correctly. I power washed all the old dust and mud dobber nests from the underside. I also stripped the body down to bare metal and used my own custom mix again of "King-Seely" Grey two part Awl Grip polyurethane paint for this project. I replaced both the arbor bearings with new high quality ones and installed two new machined steel pulleys and a green link belt.

NOTE about photo 3 below: This picture has 3 vintage Craftsman saws together in my shop, the 8 inch Model "80" bench saw was bought brand new by my Grandfather in 1950 (dirty papaer is dated 1949) which is the first year this saw was introduced by Sears. The Model "100" 10 inch bench saw was made in 1964 which was the first year that Emerson took over the Craftsman power tool contract for Sears buying out all the King-Seeley designs and inventory stock. The 1966 Crafsman "Floor" Model table was the last year this saw was made in the US by Emerson in TN who just ran with the original King-Seeley design of this table saw that was introduced in 1953.

A new custom mortise and tennon stand was made for for this saw and I also still have the original optional metal stand. This saw will be used in a new studio shop out in Bastrop, TX where this Craftsamn Model 100 will be used for making custom furniture.
