If all you're missing is the fence itself, measure the width of the
existing table and chop a 1"x2" to length. That's your starting point
and your fence. Want it a bit higher? Use the one you just made with
the 1"x2" to rip whatever height you'd like. In fact, rip two since
you'll occasionally want to replace the fence and you chew it up with
slightly angled cuts, etc.
FWIW, if no one has the manual scanned for you, it's still available
from Sears for $7.49.
Pretty good diagrams of the various parts of the saw are available on
line as well.
<<A friend gave me this saw (Model 113.197602) but it has no fence. I
appreciate the measurements. If it isn't too much trouble, a pdf of the
manual would REALLY be appreciated!>>
Get in touch with Emerson Tool Company and see if they can supply you a
manual. Sears sells the manuals but Emerson might give you one for nothing.
To e-mail, replace "bucketofspam" with "dleegordon"
information for locating the position of table should still be valid.
Whether Craftsman will replace the guard and table depends on the age
of the saw, later models qualify, otherwise you get $100 to stop using
