Comments:
Garage sales used to be favorable hunting grounds for relics like this. I got it for so cheap I can't remember. At first, it was little more than a rusted curiosity...yard art. One day, I got it cleaned up and oiled, hooked a 1hp motor and it showed real good stuff ripping a bunch of fence boards and barn wood. I'd like to do it justice by really restoring it, but it is happy just to be in service. It looks pretty cool just the way it is because it is a workhorse around the yard and the wear and tear add character to its appearance. It is a rust magnet, so care is required to keep the table smooth. Mostly wax. It needs another coat right now.

Comments: This saw still cuts clean and true enough for most projects; i t has been subject to the boring task of ripping ground stakes for the yard and garden, but it can be quite accurate, despite its ignominious tasks. 1/2inch arbor is designed for 7 inch blade.

Comments: Logo has model 103.0214 on raised relief; Sears Roebuck and Co., USA. This is a portable saw, but by yesteryear's standards

Comments: Here is a view showing the nifty depth gauge and lock; far right shows the depth adjuster; I believe this is a 7 inch saw, as an 8 incher cannot be raised fully

Comments: rear quarter view, showing the pully shaft and the table tilted at 45 deg.; the splitter is missing, but as can be seen in the first photo, the original fence and miter gauge are present. Power is supplied by a Craftsman 10 inch table saw motor (xxx.1220)

Comments: You can see the fence clamp mechanism, which is one fine feature of this tidy little saw; I really like this saw especially for this feature...it really wants to do its job.
