Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw

2 Answers

I have a craftsman table saw model 113.27870. I need a table insert for a dado blade. I looked on the sears website and it said parts for this saw are no longer available. Will a table insert for a newer model craftsman table saw work or could I adapt one to work on this saw?

I would use mdf to create another throat plate and then slowly bring up the dado to create a zero clearance...throat plate will need to be held down while you come up with the dados..

Maybe you could try using the outline of the regular insert to cut a new insert out of a piece of polycarbonate (lexan) or ABS plastic. The clips that hold my dado insert barely hold it in place on mine, and I've seen other saws that use plastic.

You can find a nice quality feather board that will fit your table saw from www.leevalley.com. They have one that comes with both 5/8" and 3/4" table bars and sells for about $15. I have one and it works great, Look under the Woodworking tab and type in feather boards. Look at the brand Versatile Featherboards. http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=60022&cat=1,240,45884,60022 You may want to call Lee Valley to see if they have a zero clearance insert that will fit your saw. Otherwise, order a new insert from Sears Parts Direct. From the picture on their website I believe it comes as a blank and you will need to cut the new opening in the insert. To do that lower the saw blade all the way below the table top, install the new insert, move the rip fence over top of the insert but not over where the saw blade would penetrate, turn on the saw, and slowly raise the blade up through the insert.

I bought a craftsman dado blade set but can't find the instructions and I have no idea how to use it. Is it possible to get instructions


Dado blades are used in a variety of saw applications. Commonly tables saws. The manual for your table saw should identify if the saw is capable of using this blade-set Never used dado blades in a saw that is not intended for them as this can result in severe injury to yourself and or damge to the tool. If your are unsure if your saw can accomodate dado blade please post your make and model of saw and someone will try to help you.

What kind of dado blade can I use on my craftsman 10 inch table saw model no. 137.248100/ with stand


You have a 5/8" diameter arbor. You can use any dado blade that will fit. That said here's a few things to bear in mind.

8" diameter dado stacks are pretty standard for 10" contractor table saws. A dado stack is typically about 13/16" wide at most. It makes sense that the wider your blade is, the more power it takes to cut through the wood.

If you were to use the full width capacity of your Dado stack (13/16") a 10" diameter stack would bog down. A 8" stack has a faster rotation at the cutting edge because of its smaller radius. So, you don't bog down when you're making a wider cut if you use a smaller diameter.

If your machine was really underpowered, you could go down to a 6" stack which would cut your power requirements even more, but limits the depth of cut.
