Alternative Tablesaw Cranks


I just picked up an old Craftsman 8" tablesaw as I posted about recently. The adjustment wheels had apparently been broken and casement window cranks installed to replace them. The decrease in leverage provided by the originals vs the replacements I suspect is what makes it rather difficult to make adjust. I have taken the blade/motor carrier apart and greased moving part in an effort to reduce the effort needed to move the blade to no result. Further, the force required to make adjustments has managed to break the plastic knob off one of the cranks in the two times I've used the saw. I really can't afford to put $25+ wheels on a saw I only paid $35 for too begin with.

Re: Alternative Tablesaw Cranks


I had that saw... Brand new in 1989??

Good little lightweight saw.


Gave it to my dad, and still drag it out sometimes when I'm down there.

Re: Alternative Tablesaw Cranks


Visegrips I said.

But seriously did you take the Sears number on the saw and look it up at searsparstdirect.com?

Also, Sears doesn't make anything (not any more anyways) they just get a supplier to brand the Sears logo and put it into the Sears retail system.

The flatted shaft looks like every el-cheapi table saw I've ever owned - and most of them have been Rockwell - possible alternative source.

Lastly - I have a new one still in the plastic parts bag someplace that you can have if I ever find it - because I always use Visegrips.

I used to put them on - but tossing them in and outta trucks - first thing to break, so why bother?

Listed for $26.31.

The saw was made by Emerson. Model 113.221620

Quote:
Emerson Electric Manufacturing Co. was established in 1890 by John Wesley Emerson. In the beginning, they made electric motors and related products, such as switches. Over theyears they added other products to their line, including desk fans and ceiling fans. Starting in 1948 (and perhaps earlier) they made a few woodworking machines for Sears Roebuck. For example, the 1948 Craftsman catalog features the Model 100 tablesaw as "Emerson saws"; examples of this saw have model numbers beginning with 113, which corresponds to Emerson Electric Co. Most of the Craftsman woodworking machines at that time were made by King-Seeley Corp., however.
In 1962 Emerson bought all of King-Seeley Corp.'s design patents, tooling, and parts for Sears, Roebuck & Co. Craftsman and Dunlap lines. Emerson began production of machines in 1964.
In 1990, Leroy-Somer Canada Ltd., Granby, QC, was purchased by the U. S. Electrical Motors division of Emerson. The Granby plant was closed in 1992; production for the Canadian market moved to USEM's Markham plant, but then that plant was closed in 1993.
Emerson lost their Sears contract around 1998, but they began making the Ridgid line of stationary power tools for Home Depot. The Emerson Tool Co. (a division of Emerson Electric Co.) no longer makes woodworking machines (they make shop vacuums), and the Ridgid brand woodworking machines are made elsewhere.
Parts and Manuals

For information on availability of parts and manuals, see the Craftsman entry in the Manufacturers Index.
The first 3 digits of a Craftsman power tools model number indicates the manufacturer.

For many products, the first three numbers of the Model Number (usually followed by a decimal point) indicate the actual manufacturer of the product. For instance 316.43234 is a cordless drill built by Ryobi
