Topic tags/keywords: craftsman table saw help tablesaw

Hey everyone!

I’m just getting started at woodworking and I bought this table saw without a rip fence (oops). I’m overwhelmed by the number of table saws Craftsman has made and I want to make sure I buy the right fence that fits my model.

Does anybody know what the model is and/or what fence I should get?

Thanks in advance!

I would suggest you build one. Take a look at John Heisz Wooden table saw fence https://ibuildit.ca/plans/wooden-table-saw-fence/ Until it gets done clamp a straight edge to the table top. I think an aftermarket square would exceed the price of the saw. Dan

Yeah the price of an aftermarket fence would make it a better value to look for a better saw on craigslist that already has a fence.

There should be a model and serial number printed on the machine… typically those have them on the front, but they can be anywhere. It was not made by Sears/Craftsman, and you can figure out who made it by the three digit prefix of the model number. Given the nature of the saw, a plastic cased machine with a universal screamer motor, I would be reluctant to throw much money at it… for what you would spend on a good fence, you can probably find a nice full sized contractor saw with an upgraded fence already installed. YMMV.

Cheers,
