Craftsman table saw model 103.20002

by David
(Berea, KY)

I just bought this table saw. I know it looks a bit rough, but it works really well. I wanted an older saw instead of a newer one. The older saws just seem better built to me. I would like to know if anyone can tell me what year the saw was made. Also, is there anywhere I can find a manual for it? Thanks!

Blade gaurd
by: Anonymous

In my experience, I personally do not like the blade gaurd. It seem to get in the way. I think as long as you are safe you dont need it. But if it makes you feel better by all means. I think that you will really enjoy this saw. Have fun and be safe.

103.20002 Saw--parts needed!
by: Anonymous

Hello All! I've just purchased a 1950s 9" Craftsman saw, model 103.20002, and I'm looking for two table extensions with geared rails. A blade guard would be nice too, but I can always retrofit that. Can anyone help? (bmwhite2004@yahoo.com)

I just can't get rid of it! - Craftsman 103.20002
by: Doc

I bought mine used off a carpenter in 1968. I keep thinking about getting a new one but this has served me so well for all I do (build furniture) over the years that I finally decide to just keep it. I'm 74 anyway! LOL They don't make 'em like that anymore!

Sears Craftsman 8" tablesaw
by: Tim

I have an old 8 inch Craftsman tablesaw that looks like a '57 Chevy. It has solid handwheels which are chrome plated and have crankhandles on them. Or at least one of them has a crankhandle. The other one is missing. Anybody know where to find one? With a machine as cool as this it would be good to restore it to original condition.

Trunion for model 103-20002
by: Boyd

I have used my saw for years in my hardwood floor/staircase business. Recently damaged the trunion and tilt gear. I believe the only way to solve these problems is to have a machinist reproduce them. Parts do not exist that I know of. Does anyone know of a solution? That's an opportunity for someone.

by: Pat R.

I did some research looking for problems with the rip fense and found out the Mod. # and they were first made for Sears around '52-'53 by the King
Seeley Corp. Sears has no parts. Problem with the saw being 1/2" dia. spindle and most blades are 5/16 and up now. Just broke my last blade insert awhile ago. Saw some body telling how to make inserts, so if U know let me know.

I am not sure if that is the correct name for them but I have a 103.20002 but the table is very small without them. If anyone is selling these I would love to buy them. Thanks!

About your saw
by: Roger

I have a saw very similar to what you have pictured. I've had it for a few years now. I've added a Beismier fence, and have had to replace the trunion because the threads on the arbor got damaged. Anyway, my switch went out on me today, and I've been looking high and low on the internet, found a few possibilities, but don't know for sure. Do you have any ideas where I can get a switch for this thing? I'd appreciate any input. Thanks, Roger
Here is my email: Kentuk55@bellsouth.net
