Craftsman table saw fence

I bought a used Craftsman table saw model number 137.248880 that has no fence. Is there anyone out there that can lead me to one . Thank you

I think mine is older. It is a 113.298721 (circa 1991). I upgraded the fence several years ago. I'm sure you can find a good replacement fence. I typed Craftsman Rip Fence in Amazon.com and got 57 hits. Also check ereplacementparts.com. Even Sears.com is still active. You can probably find a direct replacement for the one you are missing.
If you did not get the manual you can find it on manualslib com.

Get an after market fence.
I put a unifence on my craftsman years ago and couldn't be happier.
I don't think the unifence is made any more but there are a few quality fences that beat the craftsman by a mile.

Depends upon which Craftsman you are trying to beat. The X-2424 is a very good fence, as are others.

Mine is a 113.299315.
The fence locked both front and back, was solid but I had to check alignment EVERY time I moved it.
A real pita. I put up with it for about a month and had enough.

I would go DIY. Aftermarket fences will cost more than the machine is worth.

Ebay is your best bet.
