A fellow OWWMer ran across this saw and Craftsman 103.0502 jointer at a garage sale, in Marshall Michigan.
The combination did not sell, so he put me in contact with the seller.
I bought the combination, on 13Aug2006, at the seller's barn in Marshall Michigan (1-1/2hr drive).
He told me both machines came from his grandfather.

UPDATE 2012: Sold this saw to a fellow OWWMer.
