Comments:
Currently trying to positively identify the saw, as the machine tag has been removed by a prior owner for some reason.

Bought this saw January 2013 from my brother who bought it a year prior and never used it, he bought a second saw in that time and offered this one to me. It seems to run fine and I have made a few test cuts, but need to clean it up before using it.

It is a Craftsman 12" direct drive table saw, that much is true. Most of it is in good condition but needs some help. It has what appears to be an original fence with geared adjustment. The left side of the table has a rod extension. It is currently on a wheel dolly as there is no stand; I figure I'll build a nice one when the machine is ready. The motor has a tag on it: Source 113, with a part number "62254". Motor Model is KK48BB-107, can be wired 120 or 240. Mfg number G7080, Class B E37845. This motor leads to very few search results, but one important one was at the Sears website, where motor part "62254" is listed for the 12" direct drive saw, model 113.29970. I would like to find a manual, or more information, for this saw if possible. Any help is appreciated.

Anyway, the current photos show the saw as I received it. Physically it appears to be in pretty good shape, with some surface rust, paint overspray, and related grime. The last photo shows the difference made with some 220 grit sandpaper and mineral spirits, so I'm optimistic about bringing it around to looking good.

Feel free to contact me with questions, comments, info, etc.

Comments: Fence appears original, miter gauge is not. bar is too thick and does not drop completely into slot. Will pay if someone has an original part for this saw. Switch box is previous owner's homebrew.

Comments: Cabinet looks great, but it looks like the blade height lock is bent upward, unless someone can correct me. Also the handles for the height and angle cranks are loose and in bad shape, would like to fix/replace.

Comments: Rear shot of saw. I believe the machine tag should have been at the bottom near the middle. There are two small holes there with a rectangular area that is discolored. Please let me know if you know that to be true.

Comments: As can be seen, the elevation wheel knob has washers in place and is missing the pearl insert on the handle. The tilt crank is better, but functions are very gummy and slip, so all needs a good clean and repack. Again, elevation lock rod looks bent.

Photo 6:

Comments: Right side is untouched (dusted off) showing paint overspray and light surface rust/grime. Channel is not bad. On the left I sanded lightly with 220 grit about 6" by 6" and cleaned with mineral spirits. Needs more polishing, but potential looks good.
