A Contractor Grade Craftsman Saw
This Craftsman table saw delivers powerful cuts, a generous work surface and a stable build that delivers smooth cuts. Designed to move fast on job sites yet deliver the same stable, wobble-free cutting of high-end shop machines, this table saw combines sturdy, kick controlled casters with the assured blade stability of a cast iron trunnion system to deliver the best of shop and site.
Built with an adaptable riving knife system, this Craftsman table saw delivers clean cuts, perfect slots and solid dados with only a few quick adjustments, so when you’re switching from panels to trim to cabinet work, you can move at a fast pace and keep the job on time. And powered by a smooth running 1-3/4 horsepower motor, spinning the 10 inch blade at 3,450 rpm, you’ll rip, rabbit and cross cut soft and hardwoods alike easily.

So roll it out, plug it in and start making the kind of cuts you can count on for tight miters and clean bevels every time.

I agonized for a month before settling on this saw. I saw reviews from a couple of years ago that this saw suffered from blade alignment issues, but since those reviews the problem seems to have been solved. I had no setup issues. The assembly instructions are very clear, and all parts bags are labeled. The blade was square to the miter slots with no adjustment necessary. The fence on this is really great. I've upgraded from an older Craftsman with the crappy fence, you know the one. This is much better. I really like the integrated wheels. I have a small shop and moving the saw around is painless.
So glad I listened to Jim at your store. This saw is fabulous. It meets my needs and am having so much fun with it. it's solid and does accurate cuts. I was originally going to purchase a movable saw but after talking to Jim I decided this was the way to go. I really hate that my father in laws antique saw stopped working but this one is a great replacement. I usually buy Craftsman and always have. It's not because I work for Kmart it's just that all m;y Craftsman tools work great. Even the one I replaced was bought from Sears I believe over 60 years ago..

Like most budget minded folks I am not in a financial position to run out and purchase the latest and greatest cabinet saw available, so I settled with the 21833. Even though it wasnt my first choice I figured this would be an excellent saw for the money and I was excited to have it but boy was I wrong. First the assembly instructions arent the worst but could use some better pictures and explanations. It took me quite a while to put this saw together and it still isnt true. The steel extension tables droop, while I used a straight edge and jointed the edges perfectly with cast iron table the droop is quite significant. No shims or instructions are provided to correct the droop. The fence will not stay straight and true and I must spend the frustrating time to tap this fence into place before each and every single cut. The blade that came with this is not the nice one pictured with the saw and it came warped! When you raise the saw blade up and down you can watch the saw blade sort of wiggle around so it also requires measuring the saw blade to the miter slot every time you make any heighth adjustments. And unless you feel like adjusting the 'hard to adjust trunnions' with every cut and leave off the back panel to access the trunnions you may find it best to just leave it at a certain height. The riving knife is difficult to true and bends easier than it should especially with it raised all the way up. I experienced some serious binding issues with this saw it burns wood like crazy and filled the garage up with smoke leaving gouges in the wood and is in my opinion very dangerous. I have had my wife help me with the build and I have had two cousins and neighbor help me with trying to true this saw and when you think you got it, you bump something and its off again. So I am not sure what to due with this thing. I spent all I had to spare on this saw. I certainly cant afford to replace the fence and fix everything else that is wrong with it nor do I want to. Otherwise I would have purchased a cabinet saw since it would cost the same in the end. I have had it less than a month and right now its just a sad reminder of what a poor decision it was to purchase. I had grand plans that are on hold because owning this is the same as not owning a table saw at all because it is essentially useless. Also the blade insert tips towards the back because there is no screw to support it. You just push the back of the insert with your finger and down it goes. This saw aint nothing but a poser, it looks bad and mean and has weight to it but its nothing but a hunk of junk. This saw purchase seriously made me super depressed because of the sacrifices my wife and kids made for me to be able to purchase this saw. Dont buy it guy's do yourself the favor and get a used powermatic or a new grizzly for just a few hundred more.
I bougfht this saw to replace my 8 year old Craftsman (similar to model 21807) because I needed the added capacity to handle wider boards. Overall it is a good saw, but there are a few minor issues in my opinion. First, there is no outfeed support for boards as they extend past the blade. Next, the blade is set rather far in from the front edge, again at least compared to my older saw, so that you often need to lean over the top of the saw....AND THE SPINNING BLADE....as you finish your cut because you need to hold both pieces or let one fall free...again, because of the lack of an outfeed support....making it a bit unsafe. Lastly, and the most disappointing to me is that the motor/belt driven blade seems underpowered at least compared to the direct drive of my older saw. I do most of my work with mahogany, and I have had the blade come to a DEAD STOP while trying to rip a 3/4" thick piece of wood, something I never experienced on my older saw. But still, overall, I like the saw, as it is much more quiet than my old one, and I like the bottom dust exhaust chute.
Amazing Saw! Weighs a ton though. Put it together in 3 hours with the help my father, then went to cutting. We cut plywood, 2x4 and 5/4 oak without the saw slowing down. The blade that's sent with it is perfect for rough sawing, but I plan on putting on a 60 tooth for final sawing. It's an amazing saw for the money, so happy I went with craftsman! Would buy again!!!

Unlike others who post reviews as their product comes out of the box, I have owned this saw for over three years. I am very pleased with this saw and have been, right after I finished putting it together. Some thoughts: 1. Out of the box, I had the saw squared up and ready to go in minutes. 2. The saw is able to rip long pieces of lumber smoothly. Only when using pressure-treated lumber does it slow a bit. At these times I remember that "patience is a virtue" and I did not purchase a $1000+ saw. 3. The wheels are solid and easily maneuver the saw around my shop or out the door. 4. The fence slides like the rails are buttered and easily locks in place using the adjustment screws. I have never experienced drift during/after cuts. 5. Reaching into the saw, it's a little tight for me to get my Freud dado stack installed. I can do it, but the space could be a little roomier. 6. Don't set a cup with condensation on the metal top (non-painted area). It will rust a cup-ring. I don't know if this is due to the quality of the steel or not, as mentioned in other reviews. 7. I have also seen many reviews that highlight the assembly of this product. Yes, it is a bit challenging. I had to jimmy the table onto the base by loosening all the "red" leg portions and then re-tightening them. Other than that, it is just a bit difficult to maneuver the sheer weight of the saw during the assembly process. I purchased this table saw on sale, with a 10% off coupon. I walked out of the store for about $475 (in 2011). After my father, a lifelong woodworker, visited my shop, he went home and purchased the same saw. He too struggled with the assembly, but is just as pleased as I have been with the saw's performance. In the end, I have found this to be an outstanding saw at a price that allows non-professionals (or the non-wealthy) to enjoy having a tool that they can count upon to get the job done.
Really disappointed in my new Sears Craftsman Table Saw (351.218330). I have an older Sears Craftsman Table saw (113.241691) that I purchased back in the mid 1980?s. This old saw works great. I had an idea that since I was now retired and would be doing more hobby wood working that I should upgrade my saw. I purchased this new saw in July 2014, put it in the garage and never turned it on until Dec 2014 ? going to make a few Christmas presents for my grandchildren. Boy was I surprised, I have spent hours trying to get the new saw true. I am not new to wood working. I have a Sears Craftsman Radial Saw (113.197750) purchased in 1978, a Sears Craftsman 12 in Band Saw (113.243311) purchased in 1985, a host of other Craftsman hand tools. These old tools are still working just like new and will hold a true cut. Looks like this new Craftsman Table Saw is going to just be a rough cut saw and a table for junk ? cannot trust it to cut true. I wish I had used this saw in the first month that I purchased it. If I had I would have taken it back. My bad for believing in a brand. Appears Sears Craftsman tools are dropping in quality.
bought this mod because the original model with granite top was never delivered after the first one failed out of the box with a bad motor. I hope this one holds up
I bought this saw after thinking about buying one for a long time. I wanted a saw with a good stable base, large enough table top to support the item being cut at a reasonable price. Compared to other movable saws, this top is a fair size then others. Although, the saw is heavy, and moves good around the shop floor with the wheels, it is not easly moved from a truck to work site. But it is not that kind of saw. So, for working a shop, and wanting to move it from time to time, and have a good solid base to work from, this is a good saw for the money. ALSO, the guide fence is pretty accurate, just set it using the guide scale and it will be pretty true. Only bad, the directions was not clear and it took about 8 hours to assemble.
