Greetings fellow sawdust makers.

I have a problem that requires your expert input: ​I bought a used U.S. made Emerson/Craftsman 113.299315 (model number added after original post) table saw manufactured in or around 1995 that’s in very good shape except for one issue. The trunnion is jacked up. The gear for the height mechanism is so worn that it may as well be sheared off. It’s frozen stiff and there’s obviously no fixing it.

My question is this: are all trunnions for this style and era of Craftsman contractor saw interchangeable? If so, I’ll look for another used saw that I can part out. Does anyone know of a good source that sells this kind of part?

I realize it’s a tough question and there may only be a few individuals that have this kind of knowledge, but I’m hoping there’s a lumberjock out there who can help. I’ve attached a photo of a saw that looks exactly like mine.

Thanks!

Guess I should be more accurate when I say “trunnion”. It’s the height adjusting gear in the cradle/arbor/trunnion assembly. Hopefully, I’m describing this accurately.

What is the exact model number? With the parts diagram, you can pinpoint what it is you need, and the part number can be cross-referenced to other models which may be suitable. Emerson made quite a few different saws, so just saying it’s a ‘113’ is not very helpful.

Cheers,

I’m recalling this off the top of my head but I’m pretty sure it’s 113.299315. Thanks for your help!

Shouldn’t be hard to replace, if it’s needed. eReplacementparts.com would have it in stock, I would think. You can also try EBay, as well.

Actually, a quick search at ereplacements.com reveals that the part is obsolete and no longer available. Does anyone have knowledge/experience mixing and matching parts from different models to rebuild a cradle/arbor/trunnion assembly?

Thanks!

Find an inexpensive donor saw on CL. Most of the similar Emerson made saw parts should work. Take the part you need, sell the other parts to offset your costs.

Yep, this is the course I believe I will take. Thanks!
