I have the Craftsman 113-239291 which is the same unit as the 239201 including the steel legs, purchased in late 1970’s. I purchased 6 different cutters and a multiple sized bearing/coller set. The cutters were only HSS and didn’t stay sharp well at all when used on hardwoods. They were only available on special order and were discontinued sometime in the 80;s or early 90’s. Additionally, I added a reverseable switch so I can feed work from either direction and install the cutters from either side, top or bottom down. Woodmaster1 is correct in that MLCS (not Mcls) carries several most with 3/4” bore and 1/2” shaft reducer bearing. I haven’t purchased any for fear the 1/2hp motor would not eaisly operate the heavier larger sized cutters; rail and style set or panel cutters I’d really like to have.

Woodmaster1, What say ye about using the larger cutters on our machines, MLCS customer service didn;t answer me and I haven’t talked with Tech Support?
