    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.

        "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
