Comments:
This saw was bought off a Craigslist ad in Austin Texas and came with the original Craftsman motor, miter gauge, blade throat insert and an small 4" jointer accessory option.
9 inch Craftsman/King-Seeley bench saw that was originally sold as a combo machine with a small 4" jointer (left handed design still I have )bolted to the right side as an extension accessory. I've added a set of grid type extension wings I had off another parted out 8" bench saw.Saw was in good shape with just some minor surface rust and the original arbor bearings are in excellent shape since there was little run time on this saw overt the years. Also came with the original Craftsman Emerson Electric made 113. 1-hp 3450 rpm motor that was in perfect original condition including the paint on it and original 2.5" Craftsman motor pulley also. I installed all new electrical components and painted it in the Craftsman "Powder Bronze" color scheme. I have used period correct late 1950's 16"x30" metal stand with the optional Craftsman casters and cross silde mounting rails that I restored for this 9" bench saw unit. I still need to fond a correct rip fence which was missing when it was purchased.
This 9" saw has a 5/8" arbor diameter which is nicer that the 8" Model 80's with the 1/2" arbors using a saw bushing. I also noticed that King-Seeley went to the same sized 17"x 20" table in the the early 1960's as the 8" Model 80 bench saws...the earlier late 1950's version of thew 9" saw used a 18"x 24" table top.

Note: This table saw is currently up FOR SALE to find a new happy owner here soon. (3/22/17)
