    Sears model numbers don't tell us much. Can you tell us the size of each item? i.e. bandsaw-14"; planer 12" router-3/4 hp; or any info would help. Any chance of some pics?

      do some EBay searches for similar tools, watch the auction to completion, and or do a completed auction search,

        You could try which lists many old Craftsman power tools.

        A Craig's List or eBay search as previously said will get you a ballpark price range, adjust based on condition of tool, all included accessories present, owners manual present, etc.

        On the above site are a couple copies of old Craftsman tool catalogs I believe. If you found a catalog within a year or so of the suspected age of your tools you'd have an idea of what they sold for new.

        I believe all the Craftsman model numbers beginning with 113 were made by Emerson in the 50s thru the 90s, and the 103 stuff is older, maybe King-Seeley vintage which would put it back in the 50s or older I think.

        Time, cost, or quality; pick any two but you can't have all three.
