Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw

I really appreciate all the information here on LJ and everybody’s willingness to share what they’ve learned or made.

In the spirit of there isn’t such thing as a stoopid question, I’m going to ask:

Does anybody know what screw size holds my 1980’s Craftsman Table Saw Insert down? Not the adjustor hex heads, just the main pan head machine screw…...#10-32 maybe?

Because, yes, I lost it…........

My C’man TS 113.298030 manual states it is a flat head screw: 10-32 X 1.

Glad I could help. That is what LJs is all about, that and a wood/tool/machine gloat!

I have a 113.298240. My manual also indicates a 10-32×1 for the hold down screw. The set screws to adjust the insert are also 10-32×3/16.

10-32×1 is a winner. Got it nailed down. I mean screwed down. Even found a package of them for when I lose it again. Been making my own inserts, or trying to, out of different materials – plywood, hardboard, etc and keep taking the darn thing out to test them.

Set the original screw aside and it galloped off on its own. Probably hiding in the sawdust box below the saw. Magnet fishing time…..

Magnet fishing is fun!

I dropped my car & house keys into the drain “pit” at the carwash I worked at. The water in the pit is 4’ deep with 1 to 2’ of silty sludge at the bottom. I was able to “land” my keys with only one “cast”. However, I was never so lucky when I went fishing for the 3 or 4 wrenches that I dropped. I think I retrieved 2.

Glad you are back in action.
