Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw delta

After debating for the better part of a year on weather to buy a new table saw or upgrade my old Craftsman (113-27521) with a Delta T2 fence, I opted to save the ole boy and I know dad would be proud. There’s so much great info here on LJ and other woodworking sites that it gave me the courage to drill holes into my new toy as well as the old saw and I couldn’t be more pleased. Thanks to all who posted.
It took me about 2 hours start to finish to drill all the necessary holes, get the height just right and hit the zero mark. The fence moves super smooth and will be a joy to use….first project will be a Shaker wall clock….can’t wait!!

Congrats on your new T2! You’ll enjoy it. I know I enjoy mine on an old Craftsman 113 saw.

Nice job! Installed a T2 on my old Craftsman that I’ve had since mid 80’s with the original fence. It has made the saw a WHOLE lot nicer to use! I filled in the gap between the two rails and the extra table space is nice also. Enjoy the new fence!!!

The best thing I did to my 113 was put the T2 on it. Actually made it into a very decent saw. You will really enjoy it.

gotta love those older (113.xxxxx) c-man tools. they were made by emerson electric for sears adn, later on, for ridgid. i have a 70s vintage 113 c-man and a 2003 ridgid 2412. both built by emerson, both with the same configuration but the arbor carriage of the c-man has CI in the areas between the webbing, where the ridgid has hollowed out spaces. the older c-man is built more substantially. mine has a t2 like yours and it’s a very capable little saw.

I really like my Delta T2 Tom. One thing that bothered me but not others here was that the locking handle was loose and would down making it hard to make some of the adjustments of my fence. I solved it rather easily and here is the link to my post on it. Most LJs had no problem with it but I didn’t like that happening so take it for what it is worth to you. You will like your fence. larry

The print on the pictures is a little hard to read unless you enlarge your view, at least for an old guy it is better enlarged.
