I have an old Crasftsman RAS from the mid-late 60”s, it think. On the back side of the main support column there is a groove with tapered sides. In the base column support is a wedge that rides in that groove and it has a set screw that adjusts how tight the wedge is in the groove. You will need to balance the tightness of the wedge to minimize the side to side motion with the ease of cranking the column up and down. Also, make sure that the horizontal track arm is secure to the main column.

You may be able to find a manual for it at the Old Woodworking Machines site ( http://www.owwm.org/ ).
