This Craftsman/King-Seeley Model 80, 103.22161 8" Table saw. This model was built in the 1950's by King-Seeley and has a cast iron top with three cast iron table extensions.

I had 2 of these saws, this Gray one with home made stand, and a Beige one. The Motor on the Gray one was junk, so I took the motor from the Beige one. The Beige one also had the 2 cast iron table extensions, so I put them on the gray one.

I also have the COMPLETE Original Owners manual, with accessory "catalog", and parts list.

I found some table saw accessories from a "Shop-smith" and they work great with this Saw.

I installed the Safety Switch from a Craftsman 9" Saw and a new grounded cord to the 3/4 hp original motor.

After some cleaning and polishing,This saw is a great find.

I just installed a Power Twist Link Belt, OMG did it kill a lot of the Vibrations! WOW

Passed the Nickel test! 3 times in a row....
I Leveled the saw out, and put a 3" square of Vibration mat under each foot.
