I have the same saw
by: Steve Hawthorne

I recently acquired a saw just like the one in the picture. The only difference is that the top of the case lifts off. My saw was purchased new in 1953 by a friend of mine who is now 89 years old. He bought it to build a house. When the house was completed, the saw was packed away with a large collection of other craftsman tools and never used again. I inherited the entire collection. Many of the tools were wrapped in 1954 newspaper.

Old Craftsman Saw
by: Anonymous

Had one similar to this I bought used for 15 dollars about 1962. Used this is my business till about 10 years ago. A little on the heavy and akward side bu that large base always gave 90 degree cuts even when reaching out in some strange position. Finally burnt up the armature and retired it to a shelf in the shop as it was my first power saw and couldn't bear to toss it.

I have one in a case like the one pictured. It is a 6 1/2" in mint condition that I believe was manufactured in the 50's or 60's.
