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:
and is part #1, “Support, Spreader”
Here is a direct link to the part’s page:
Thanks in advance for any help.
