I have no experience with PALS for that saw….
Have you looked at In-Line Industries website?
Have you called In-line Industries?

I just put PALS on my 113.29920 which looks very similar to yours. I created a topic here.

I was able to get my saw to 0.002" with it, but I needed new arbor bearings and I filed my trunions out a bit.

I never did get around to that blog, though…

FWIW, i got both of my 113 series saws to +/.001 without PALS. a little patience and understanding of how the truniuons are bolted to the table will enable you to align your saw for enough accuracy without PALS.

I also have the 10 inch saw and the 8 inch saw is what Im already working on since its lighter. There is a difference in trunnions size in my opinion.

Yeah, there is a big difference in the trunnions between the 103's and the 113's. I owned both (the 103 went to my brother after I upgraded to a 113 - still in use).

I am with toolie here - I got both of my saws tuned to a gnat's ass without the expense of PAL's. I really don't see the need.

Had to check my amazon purchase history, but I used the 3/8" PALS on my 113.

I'm a bit envious of you all that were able to get such tight tolerances without the PALS kit. "Tony1212" and "patience" are nearly diametrically opposed. That's why I get to work at 5:45 am rather than sit through rush hour traffic.

The only difficulty I had with the PALS on my TS is that the set screw on the right side (when viewing from the back) is impossible to get to with the allen wrench. It's too close the side of the saw, so that got to be a bit fiddly. But I got through it pretty quickly and got the tolerance that I was looking for.

However, I do have to remake my cross cut sled. The cuts are no longer square.
