Howdy.. I have a Craftsman 113.298051 missing the insert screw to hold down a zero insert and I’ve been through my whole bucket of odds and ends with nothing. Anyone know the size screw off hand? I could guess and go buy 83 machine screws of different sizes, but that’s just silly..I just had the wooden zero insert come flying at me so I figure a screw that fits properly would be a good idea.

Did you bother to check the manual? According to the parts diagram, it’s a 10-32×7/8 flat head screw. Also says it’s a type “T” which just means it has a blunt tip instead of being pointy.

I did check, but apparently missed it.. I do appreciate it though.. Thanks.

I might have missed trying to find it on my phone screen.. Things get rather tiny. I no longer have young eyeballs. ;)

Zero insert…does the Craftsman secure those or do they simply “float” like the Delta? If the former then perhaps time to get a nicer saw!

Have your say...
