What A Saw!
I make furniture, toys, etc. mostly for my family members. As I was working on Christmas presents early last December, my $169 portable table saw gave out completely, right in the middle of sawing a door panel (probably more than the poor thing could take, but that's another story). Being in desperate need of a table saw to finish the work, I remembered that this saw was available in the current Craftsman Club promotion. I looked up the promotional price, figured I could afford it, and went online to order. First thing I discovered was that I got an additional discount for ordering it at Sears.com on a Saturday. Moreover, I could pick it up at my local store, so no shipping charges. Wow, I put it in the cart and checked out. Simply put, I got a real bargain on this saw, but the saw itself is no slackard. The saw does require some assembly, and you should plan on spending two to three hours or more doing so. You should also get someone to help as the pieces are heavy and one step of the assembly process requires turning the saw upside down then rightside up again. Also, exercise care and patience. It is well worth it in the long run. After getting the saw home, and with my son's help, uncrated and assembled, I went back to work on my interrupted project. What a dream it was to use this saw. The motor is so quiet that the air whistling through the rotating blade makes more noise than the motor. Even with the original blade, I got nice smooth, accurate cuts. I finished my projects faster and with much better results than I would have otherwise. I have made good use of the saw over the last several months on other projects I am doing. I have purchased and made several accessories including a dado blade set and dado insert, a crosscutting sled, and an outfeed table. I still working up the courage to spend $100 on a blade, but that too will come since a major home renovation project looms larger and larger in the future. I highly recommend this saw to serious do-it-yourselfer. You will not regret it, I promise.

Not the Craftsman I remember.....

I have been a faithful Craftsman tool customer for decades - I kept my first few cars on the road thanks to my first Craftsman tools. Through the years I have owned Craftsman power tools and hand tools, and I bypass the big box stores for the local Sears Hardware whenever possible. So....it really is a shame to give this table saw such a poor review.

I purchased the saw to replace a low end Craftsman unit I'd had for over 15 years. This was going to be the start of a "serious" woodshop, or at least a step up from what I had. Ordered online, and the saw arrived in good condition. After putting it together using the excellent instructions, I fired it up and immediately noticed that the blade was vibrating side to side periodically. After shut off the whole machine would rumble as the blade coasted through some kind of resonance point. It was clearly unusable - the kerf would have varied in width between 1 and 2 blade widths from the vibration. I have yet to make a single cut with it.

I found a couple of fasteners that had worked loose on the motor mounting, but the vibration remained after tightening. The machine is flat and level to the floor...I can put my entire weight (190) on each corner and there is no rocking. Examining the drive belt I found a "bump" where the two ends are joined - a new belt was provided by customer service, but the vibration remained. The table saw blade runs true on my miter saw, and the miter saw blade vibrates on the table saw. Customer service gave me a few things to try, and ultimately their suggestion to use a dial indicator on the rotating parts to isolate the problem turned up an out-of-round drive pulley on the arbor. I am seeing almost .015" variation across the circumference of that pulley - this is clearly the problem.

I am going to call customer service back in the morning.....and I think I am going to ask for my money back. Sears - I am very disappointed with this purchase. This isn't a bottom-of-the-line table saw. For this money I don't expect perfection, but in this case even basic functionality is missing. The fact that it has such an obvious defect, one that it is virtually impossible to blame on "shipping damage" makes me suspicious of the entire machine's long term viability.  Sorry - for this kind of money I expected more. Much, much more.

Possibly the Best Tool I ever owned

I have had this saw for over 2 years now. I realize it is made in China but I think it was made by Steel City's Orion Plant, to Steel City's specs. I set it up with the A-Line-It system using the dial indicator. Nothing has ever moved or shifted. I re-check it pretty often. No run out at the arbor at all. The trunion is very sturdy as well. The motor has plenty power to cut through the oak, ash, hickory, maple and walnut I use often. The saw is very heavy to load, unload and put together, but that makes it very stable in use. The fence stays where you set it and the extension works great as a short fence or a stop block. It adds exactly 1? to the fence read out tape, so it makes it easy to calculate your cuts. I could go on and on about this saw, but I think I?ll just go to the shop and use it again today instead. I have an entire shop of Craftsman tools and have been using Craftsman for a Long time. My jig saw (which is now called a scroll saw I guess) is over 50 years old and I remember when my Dad bought it.

Great value, great saw!

Bought mine just after it came out.  A little difficult adjusting the trunion, but almost all table saws are like that.  Also difficult getting a few of the fence screws in, otherwise an easy assembly.

I didn't expect the blade that it comes with to be great (and it isn't) so I put a decent Freud on it right away for the project I bought it for - making 8' long book racks for the back of my church's pews.  I made over 100 yards of 1" tall by 3/8" thick strips of ash wood, and all the 'stand off' pieces as well (inclluding dado work to recess the strips).  The saw and fence maintained accuracy throughout this job, and was powerful enough to handle the kiln dried ash easily.

OK. Had this since 2003. Time to write a review!

I struggled for years with a benchtop Craftsman saw trying to make the things I saw David Marks and Norm Abrams make with their Cabinet Saws. Duh! I worked for Sears at the time and bought this for under $500. I haven't regretted it. This performs as well as my neighbors much vaunted 5HP Unisaw. I have put some of the gnarliest types of wood through the blade of this beast (Coffee-Can to name the worst!) and it just gobbled it up and asked for seconds. This saw was set up with my neighbors precision machine tool set up gauges and was near perfect out of the box. I did have to make some adjustments to the wings to get them to align properly, but, everything else was dialled in on assembly. This thing has seen hundreds of board feet of hard and softwoods through it and not a bit of kickback or stalling. Fence and rail system is adequate but now showing it's age. Time for me to stop being a tightwad and treat the old girl to a new Beisemeyer or Shop Fox Classic fence system. She deserves it. I could replace her but nothing out there comes close in value. Dust collection works great with my Delta dust collector. A good thing with it's 1 micron bag with the amount of Black Walnut I cut on this. Most definitely the most used tool in my , now well stocked, workshop. I did however buy a DeWalt Track Saw system for cutting large panels before finishing them in the Table Saw. Craftsman, where is our Track Saw????

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This saw can be counted on

I am a licensed aircrft mechanic so you would not expect me to be reviewing woodworking tools. The wood shop is an important part of contemprary aircaft maintenance. I have designed and installed custom aircraft interiors and many of the customers wanted exotic wood paneling in their cabins. Plus I have worked on wooden structure for aircraft. Precision cutting of wood components is critical. I have worked extensively with the Professional 10 inch saw but have also worked with this saw in some shops. This saw holds its settings very well This is a lighter duty saw than the Professional saw so I would recommend checking your settings from time to time (you will probably find that they have not drifted unless you have been rough handling your wood). This saw can be counted on to last. "Sacramento" Bruce Conklin

Craftsman 1 1/2 hp Table Saw - Excellent Saw for the money

This saw has performed exceptionally well since I received it approx. 8 months ago. It actually came out of the crate perfectly aligned! I was dubious since this saw is a replacement for the Craftsman 10" Contractor Saw I received as a gift 8 months before. That saw was a total nightmare from the start and eventually the main trunion cracked in half one day when I was moving the blade to 45 degrees. This saw, by contrast, has been virtually perfect, except for the blade angle adujustment wheel which was a little loose as it goes through the cabinet. I have rigged up a collar which works just fine. The dust collection is not the best because too much sawdust collects at the base of the cabinet instead of being sucked out. I have to vacuum it out after major projects. Other than that, I am very happy the saw. The fence system is accurate and solid and the miter gauge is accurate and true. I like having the option of using the fence on the miter gauge or adding my own fence for specific projects. Set up instructions were very good and I was able to put it together in less than a day.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great value

This saw was a significant upgrade from my small Delta saw purchased from Lowes.  This saw is awesome, straight cuts, great fence, low vibration.  I had purchased a discounted open-box saw and added on the sears master protection agreement.  The motor went out within 6 month (I don't know how this saw may have been abused before I bought it).  Sears was out within 3 days to verify it was the motor and I had a brand new motor installed within 2 weeks from my first call.  No questions, no cost to me.  Sears is great!

Craftsman Saw runs quite and smooth

Saw is great so far.  Had problems putting it together, alot of it had to figure for my self.  After had it put together went to start and blade did not move much.  Belt not tight, and motor alignment was off.  Had to call for warrenty and they said because it was a shop item had to go back to store (finial weight was close to 300 lbs if not more).  Talked to warrenty and they said that they would change the class from a grarge item to a kitchen item and that some one could come out then.  Had someout to my home with in 3 days.  He adjusted the belt and made alignment changes.  He also showed me some tricks to the saw that is a huge help.  Having the abilty to move the saw around the shop is a big help and then after it is let downfrom the wheels it is very stable.

Good saw for the money.

First of all, I bought this saw new in crate from outlet store for $400, which makes it a great saw for the money. Assemble was fairly simple, I did it myself without any help. I used a side table to put extension wings together.

First of all, the instruction that comes with saw is misleading. It says that if the blade is out of parallel up to 3/32 '', it is OK.It is NOT. Good luck getting a clean cut with it, besides it is dangerous.  I used micro gauge with a precise plate to tune the saw. I ran arbor around, it is off up to 0.002" with a full circle. After I installed the precise plate and unscrewed the table screws I managed to make the plate to be parallel to miter slot exactly with 0 run-off. This means that miter slots are milled dead accurate.

Next came the time to align the fence. The fence is OK for a cheap fence. It is wrapped a bit from front to end. I set micro gauge to 0 at front and ran the gauge along the miter slot. Fence ran +-.003" along the way. So far, the total error with arbor is 0.005". Not bad. I guess if I want to get 0.002" tolerance I have to buy a $1000+ saw.

The tilt mechanism is not great, but with digital angle gauge it is easy to set the blade to 90 degrees.

I bought two Freud blades. One general purpose, another for cross cuts. So far, great cuts, no tear outs. Plenty of power for me, but  I will probably switch to 220 in the future. I haven't tried dado, so cannot comment on this.

Splitter is silly. I am in the process of making my own splitter and ZCI. Consider using board buddies.

The saw is very quet. You can barely hear it while cutting. A big plus if you have neighbors around.

Why the made left and right cut capacity to be 24" on both sides? It makes sense to make 15" and 30". This, however is an easy fix. Move the fence to the right and glue a new measure tape instead of the existing one.

Summarizing, I would say that the saw is worth $400 I paid for it, but I would never pay $800 for it. For a few hundreds more you can get a much better saw.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
