The model number is the most important number for the saw as it helps determine what parts fix your saw.

Sears and Craftsman, the Sears brand of tools, have been building tools for well over 50 years. Among the power tools they build are table saws. These saws are large and can saw everything from a thin piece of wood to a piece of large plywood. If you are trying to find out the year your table saw was made, Sears has made it easy to determine on their parts website.


Step 1

Locate the model number. On saws, it is usually a silver sticker near the motor. It could also be on the frame.
