I'm new to this group and am looking forward to any advice that the more experienced can offer.
Here's what I have . . . . .
I was given this Craftsman Radial saw (113.197751) for FREE! The previous owner gave it to me because the blade wouldn't turn and he was figuring it would save him a trip to the junk yard. When I got the saw home I found a pack of mud wasps had built a nest inside the blade guard cementing the blade to the guard! After breaking the mud loose I was able to remove the blade guard and test the motor. It works great!
Here's a couple of pictures of the RAS so you can get a feel for the condition of the saw when I picked it up . . . . .
I'm in the process of cleaning it up and come to find out that Sears doesn't have some of the parts that I need. For those of you that have been through this process perhaps you can tell me where you eventually found the parts that you needed. Perhaps you have some old saws laying around that could be parted out. In any event here are the parts that I'm currently looking for . . . . .
1) The "T" handle that attaches to the metal lever that locks the radial arm.
2) A set of wrenches (7/8" open end and 1 1/16" box end)
3) A miter indicator cap that is located at the rear of the radial arm. It has a little finger that hangs down over the the number ring that shows the angle as the radial arm is moved.
Any advice that you could offer would be appreciated. If you have any parts or know where I could find some I'd like to know. Thanks in advance.
