I have a 10" Craftsman table saw that I purchased new around 1970. There is not a model number anywhere on the unit. I need a new rip fence for it.
I found some offered on eBay, but they have both a front rail and a back rail. My rip fence clamps directly on the back the 27" tabletop and on the front rail. There are no pre-drilled holes on the back of the table.
I emailed one person offering a rip fence, but he said I would have to attach the back rail and drill holes in the cast iron top. I'd prefer to avoid that.
Any chance that any rip fence would fit without a back rail? It seems that the 27" depth has been standard for years. I'd like a rip fence with a micro setting on the front rail clamp for small adjustments.
Yes. They have not been of help at all. Without a part number for the saw, they don't even try to answer the question. You would think they could look up the part number for the saws they sold in that year, but they won't.
