I am looking for dado insert for craftsman table saw model no.113.289142.
The manual number for dado insert is 9-29997.
Tried Sears parts several times and every time they send the regular insert which is wrong.!
Some times you just throw your hands in the air and know you have to look else where.
If any one can help Please drop me a line!!!!!

Is your saw a bench top model? If so, it may not be able to handle a dado set and no dado throat plate would be available.

I just make my own from mdf covered on both sides with formica. This happens to be for a Jet saw, but I have made inserts for a Craftsman as well. Bandsaw the insert to rough size, then pattern rout it to final shape.

I can feel your frustation. I ordered a zero clearince insert for my craftsman saw from the parts area. They sent me a plastic piece, and when I put it on my saw which is a 10 in saw. The insert wouldn’t even fit onto the table top so I could cut through it to make the slot. It sucked. I just threw it in the trash. What a waste of $..

Make a zero clearance insert. While you’re at it make a few of them. Easy to do with a router and pattern bit.

My table saw is a full on table saw with legs,two table extensions motor and hold down.
I was hoping some one might have one.
I saw this box joint jig on utube that a guy built from a plan in a shopnotes megazine vol.2 issue 8 that he modified and I really liked it and that started the dado insert hunt.Still on the hunt for the plan also.
Well I will just keep looking won’t give up.

Can you post a picture of the insert that goes in your saw?
I just scraped my craftsman table when i bought my Ridgid table saw.
I’m not sure about the model number on the saw.

lakehunter you can post the pics right here, just click the “img” button right above the text box. You can also click on the person you want, and send them a personal message with the image.

PS The image shows up as a link to the file until you post or click preview.

Just went thru some of my old tools and found one of these in my shop. Currently running a unisaw, so no longer have a need for it. Also have the manual (1 piece of paper). Had a 298240 table saw at one time.

Also have a Craftsman 9-3236 Universal Jig and manual I no longer have a use for.

Both is very nice condition.
