I got the same fence for $10.00 at auction this week. I just need the saw lol.
The exact the upgrades in going to make to my 113. Do you have any links to the information you found helpful with the fence? Which switch did you end up going with?
The fence on my Craftsman sucks, but the blade is already located so far towards the back I can’t safely finish a cut. Adding inches to front like you, and just about everyone else, would make it severely dangerous to use.
Did the same upgrades rip fence, switch, drive belt and roller frame to my Sears Craftsman 8" saw from early 1950’s works great.
There’s something very satisfying in resurrecting some fine vintage machinery. I love using my dad’s vintage Craftsman 113 table saw.
How did you mount the switch to the bottom of the rail?
Love my 1962 Craftsman table saw , new bears on the arbor , double belt and pulleys. And a Vega 50 fence, plus I added a granite top to add length to the right. The weight helps to dampen vibration.
Hey sir, quick question. That bottom pin holding the motor on. what the heck is that called. I can’t seem to find the part number for that pin anywhere.
Still got old fence.?
Have a 1977 10 inch Craftsman. Eliminated nearly all vibration by using a link belt instead of a v belt along with machined pulleys. Also used PAL CTS alignment kit to true the blade to the miter slots and no more whine, just a whir. Cuts come out much cleaner as well.
Is that a 3/4hp motor?
For 25 bucks and your addons you have yourself an amazing saw. I’m curious about it needing more power. Have you used other mobile saws like the dewalt? How does it compare to that? I’d love to see a follow-up with some cutting examples 🙂 I’m looking at a similar saw right now. Nowhere near as good a price as you paid though.
$25 table saw $300 fence system worth it? Could of bought a new saw for the fence cost why you do it really currious
Would you be able to share some of the resources you used to install your fence? I’m looking to do the same thing on my old Craftsman table saw.
I got a craftsman 137 for $25 yesterday 👍🏻
Question… I put the Delta fence on mine and the fence at the back rail seems to have a tiny bit of play when tightened down. Does yours have this issue?
Do you have a list of the mods you did. I am planning to do the same with my Craftsman.
How much was that new fence?
The fence has to go. I have one with the same fence. Mine needs to go.
Great deal for $25. they work very well.
I have a craftsman table and the problem is that I can’t tilt the saw blade. Turns so hard and can’t get it to a 45 degree. When I turn the handle it bends the side in and doesn’t move anymore. Any suggestions on how to fix it. Need help on this
I love my 10 inch Craftsman table saws. (I have 7 of them.) Two of them I couldn’t save the mechanism so I used it as a 20 inch cast iron extension bolted to another. (I removed the extensions that have holes because they can be VERY DANGEROUS if you have a piece of cutoff or anything drop into the opening, it can result in severe kickback.)
I have a setup with THREE working saws bolted to each other to make a 60 inch wide surface. The saw on the right has a ripping blade, the center has a dadoe, & the one on left, a thin kerf fine tooth blade for plywood. I can cut more than four feet to the left of the fence with full support.
The standard fence works anywhere from left to right by just picking up & setting in place. I don’t have the fine tune adjustable feature. (I would like to build or buy a "T" square fence.)
I also have replaced all "V" belts with the segmented belts. So much smoother, & more power goes to the blade.
I also want to add a riving knife or at least a splitter for my ripping blade. That’s very helpful when ripping lumber & it tries to avoid pinching the blade & kicking back or stalling the blade.
