I bought an old Craftsman 113-242720 table saw at a pawn shop today that is in very good condition. It uses a 9” blade. I am wondering if I put a zero clearance insert on it could I use a 10” blade instead? The blade lowers down way below the insert. A 10” blade would be just a touch too big for the stock insert but it looks like would work with a zero clearance insert. Can I do this?

If the 10” blade doesn’t hit up against anything and the motor has enough power i would give it a try. A 1” larger blade shouldn’t cause the blade arbor nut to fly off. It would be an easy test to find out.

If your not needing the larger blade for your wood working you can use a smaller blade no problem, I use dewalt 7 1/4 CIRCULAR SAW BLADES for all my cutting and just switch over when needing to make the deeper cuts. Read up on using them, your saw will cut much nicer and won’t waste as much wood..
