How do I fix this crack? - 24 replies

I’ve been repairing and restoring this table I bought a long time ago for my kitchen.

What is this thing... - 3 replies

I might be showing how green I am here, this is my first table saw. Finally decided to give up working with the skilsaw and move on. I’m restoring a Craftsman 113, and I really have no idea what this spring/bolt/double washer thing is. I’m inclined to just remove it and pretend it never existed, but I know it has to serve some imp...
