I have an older table saw I purchased from Craigslist that I have been pretty happy with. I did some basic cleanup and tried to tune it up a bit. It was missing the blade guard and splitter, and though they are not as good as the safety devices on newer table saws, I would rather have them than not. I went to the sears parts website and found my saw and went ahead and ordered the guard and splitter assembly.

On receipt of the parts, I found that I was missing the support bracket that is needed to attach the guard assembly to the table saw. I went to order that from Sears and found that they no longer have that part available. My father in law attempted to fabricate one by making a cardboard template and then welding one together, but the measurements didn’t come out right and it doesn’t work. I’ve also searched around the web trying to find someone else with the saw or selling the saw who would be willing to sell me that part.

I don’t know if I have any other options or not. I could have a part professionally made I suppose, or eventually stumble across someone willing to sell it to me, but I thought maybe the ever helpful community here might have another option I could try.

The table saw is a 10 inch Craftsman Model #113298032. The part can be seen at the following link:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=113298032&productCategoryId=0744600&brandId=0247&brandDescription=CRAFTSMAN&modelName=CRAFTSMAN-10-INCH-TABLE-SAW&diagramPageId=00002&componentDescription=MOTOR%20BASE%20ASSEMBLY&documentId=00040549&blt=06

and is part #1, “Support, Spreader”

Here is a direct link to the part’s page:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/showPart.pd?partNumber=62587&productGroupId=0009&supplierId=113&brandId=x&documentId=00040549&keySuffixId=NA&modelNumber=x&keyId=000001&pageId=00002&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=113298032&subCompDesc=Motor%20base%20assembly&brandDesc=CRAFTSMAN&modelDesc=CRAFTSMAN-10-INCH-TABLE-SAW&blt=11

Thanks in advance for any help.

The Craftsman 113.298### series was part of a long line of Emerson made Craftsman contractor saws, that later became Ridgid contractor saws in 1997, while the Craftsman switched to TTI/Ryobi made contractor saws that were very similar. Ridgid later followed suit in 2004 and contracted with TTI/Ryobi to make their contract saw too. The point of this history lesson is that you just might find that many of the blade guard parts are similar, and possibly interchangeable, which gives you more options to choose from.

If the saw is older and parts are no loger available I would try posting a WTB….want to buy on owwm.org. Go the BOYD (bring out your dead) forum and post what you are looking for. I’m sure there is someone out there that will have what you are looking for at a price much less than what a supplier, if they can find it, would charge you.

Contact Lee Styron about his Shark Guard / Splitter setup for your saw. He doesn’t list it, but he lists the newer versions… Might be worth looking into…
