Need Help Identifying Vintage Craftsman Table Saw
Ken Roberts

I have an older model Sears Craftsman 10" table saw. It may be contractors' model, as it is powered by a 220V motor, and cuts heavy stock with ease.

No model numbers are visible (motor model is T48BD-129), but I believe it is a 1960's model. Arbor is mounted directly on motor shaft. It needs a new tilt mechanism, and I'm looking for someone who works on, or knows anything about this model.

Feel free to message me with any information you may have.

Thanks in advance!

What seems to be wrong with the tilt mechanism? Most of the time they used the same parts on many different models. May want to look at others if you can find one. Also, there could not be very much wrong with the tilt mechanism.

I just bought an old radial arm saw that the guy said would no longer raise or lower. It was because a small piece of wood was caught between the gears. Cleared that, cleaned it, turned it and put a new table top on it, and now I have a very nice radial arm saw. Maybe yours is something as simple as that. Looks like other parts of that saw need a good cleaning.
