Bought a Craftsman 12” band saw a few days ago and need a couple of parts for it. It’s a model 137224320. I need a table insert (2 1/2”) and the pin that goes in the edge of the table where the blade goes through. Sears Parts Direct doesn’t have them. Any help in finding these will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Same size inserts as used on the 14” Delta cast iron saw and clones… I’ve always made my own inserts out of recycled milk jugs (HDPE), but you can buy them from lots of different places, even Amazon (eg: here is a 2 pack of aluminium inserts). As for the table pin, IIRC, it’s a standard taper pin that you can find at any decent hardware store… I believe it’s a #6 or #7, can’t remember which at the moment (just measure to make sure). Of course, you can find them other places for more money, like on ebay or amazon. A hex bolt can be made to work as a cheap alternative… just grind off the threads and form a taper. Chucking in a drill and using a metal file makes it pretty easy to do.

I believe the pin on the bandsaw, is threaded, with a wing nut (I believe the table is extruded aluminum). If so, any hex bolt should do, through you may need washers top and bottom.

Have your say...
