I'm hoping one of the kind souls here in the wreck will happen to have
a pair of table clamps to help out an occasional-poster-mostly-lurker.
My saw is a Craftsman 10" Accra-arm, model 113.29402. It is NOT
eligible for the safety recall.
Maybe someone out there got a new table / guard setup as part of the
recall and has some blade clamps sitting around. Sears wants an
obscene amount of money for them, and I'm looking for a bargain.
Please email me if you can help out. Thanks.

"Blade clamps" should read "table clamps". I blame the error on
end-of-day typing and fatigue from cursing c-clamps that just won't
quite hold my table square.
Table clamps look like a threaded rod w/ a cup-and-saucer joint on the
end (like a C-clamp), with a straight pin coming off at a 90 degree
angle. You drop the pin into holes in the frame of the saw stand,
then use the table clamps to square the table to the travel of the
Sorry for my error and the confusion.
I don't remember getting a new set of table clamps as part of the recall. As
soon as I can find my Box-o'-Parts, I'll have a look for you, but don't expect

If you're referring to the little thumb-screws that hold the rear table in
place, you should have gotten a new pair with the blade guard retro fit kit.
I had to go the C-Clamp route myself when I misplaced one thumbscrew clamp.
What I do is take a piece of wood (2x4 or such) and clamp it to the
table where the screw clamp attaches to the metal base then tap a wedge
between the block and support board. I leave the clamp a little loose
when I put the wedge in so the clamped block can rotate and align itself
for full block/ wedge/ fence support contact, then tighten the clamp and
tap the wedge snug.
I have the clamps your looking for (I found the missing clamp).
Somewhere. No, I'm keeping them (pack rat thing).
We bought this saw as a Christmas gift for my father in ? 1965 ?, I have
a long history with this piece of equipment. The thumb screws have
always been a PITA.
