This is best asked in the rec.woodworking group. Since 'old craftsman
10" saw' could be any of a number of models with different sized motors,
post the model number. Even with the model number, you can probably go
to the Sears parts site and look it up yourself.

Might be a clue in the pulley size of the saw. If it is relatively small, say 1
1/2-2" then the motor pulley would be larger to spin the saw blade at around
3400 RPM and the motor would therefore be 1750 RPM. A larger pulley would need
the same size on the motor at 3450 RPM. HTH
Most table saws use a 10" blade. If it's a benchtop or contractor,
it's probably a 1 HP. Cabinet saws are typically 3 HP, with a few 5
HP. Sears has excellent customer service, although not necessarily
excellent tools. Browse www.sears.com . If it uses a 1 HP,
consider upgrading to a 1.5 HP if your circuit can handle it.
