I have a 1989 Craftsman conrtactor’s style table saw – strike ONE. I purchased it from my dad a couple of years ago, and it is badly in need of a new fence -strike TWO. When I tried to purchase one from Sears Parts, they don’t have one. Ouch! – strike THREE and I’m out!

Can anyone tell me where I might find a “universal” fence that will fit my old beast? It’s a 10 inch saw.

-- Thanks!

I have a 1954 Craftsman that I mounted a Biesemeyer fence to. I don’t have the model number handy, but it is one of their basic 50 inch ones. It was quite easy to mount, but I did have to drill some holes in the side of the saw top. It also forced me to add a nice wing on the side which I now also use as a router table and share this fabulous fence. I think it is one of the best tool purchases that I have ever bought, and I have been doing that for 40 years. A nice repeatable fence is so underrated, and you can throw away your tape measure.

I know the Incra guys will pipe in soon also.

An incra TS III should fit. It uses tubes attached on the front and back and the fence slides on them.
