If you could post a couple of  pictures of it,  an external view and one from underneath, I could probably tell you in what decade it was made.

Sears is still in business.  Why don't you call the sears service center and give them the number.  They still have it in their records and can tell you more about it.  Sometimes the internet is NOT the best place to find information.  Here you can still go to the original source.  You can probably still get some parts for it and proabably a copy of the manual.
id imagine it'd have a spec plate somewhere ??

well it is hard to be sure so far from what i was told when it was given to me it is nearly "100" years old but i dont know how accurate that estamate was i just have to imagine that if my great grandpa had it when he was young ....well im suprised it was electric at any rate its old. sadly though i cant read the pat# if i could i mite get a better idea i dono thanks for trying
if its brass like most old plates are try using wd40 or Isopropyl alchohol .. something on that level

the pat# is on the steel housing and was apperently stamped in lightly and i cant read the last few numbers.. ... .. pissing me off most every time i type jigsaw in a search someone wants to sell me a puzzle ...
Well google search and others are boolean Which means they dont use sentances they use keywords So if i type the product no 110.0401 And sears all i find is this question in google . so it might be its super old !
