Topic tags/keywords: craftsman table saw fence

*This is a model#137.218300, it is a job site portable model, I have fixed the mechanism that raises and lowers the blade and now I am trying to find a fence for it. Sears no longer carries it. I discovered there was a recall and replacement for it but they do not send you a new fence just one piece of it soooooo I hope someone might have an idea where to find one.

Maybe not finding one of the OEM is a benefit, as you can always convert it out to a Beasmyer type fence, or another aftermarket version.

I doubt very seriously you will get a T-2 to fit on that machine… not only is it too small and not really all that strong, but the front of the aluminum table is kind of goofy and not really designed to have a rail bolted to it. Your best bet would be to find someone selling a similar one cheap on CL and scavenge parts from it. I had a similar model and toasted the motor. I hung onto it and used it as a router table for a while, and then found someone giving away an almost identical model for free with a trashed cabinet. Swapped the motor and now use it as a backup machine and router table. I can’t remember if the free saw I got had a fence or not – I’ll go check later on today. If I do have one, it’s yours for the cost of shipping. Just for reference, this is the machine I’m talking about:

Cheers,

Brad !! your the MAN! I hope you have one for it, it isn’t that great of a saw but it will get me by. Let me know if you find it, and I will gladly pay you for the shipping.
