    Hi, If you are still active on the forum, I also would appreciate your drawings and specs of the blade guard bracket. I got this saw from my grandfather and while he gave me the blade guard he had taken off, he didn't give me the bracket. Thank you.

    hi there, I'm trying to track down that craftsman tablesaw guard bracket that was discontinued, Part #: 979880-001. I read on the forum that you had sent another member the dimensions. Would be able to forward that email to me? It would really help me out!

    my email address is [email protected]

    Fabian, thanks so much for your replies. I did not see them till today, after doing some measuring I had come to the conclusion that it would have been way too wide for the area I had to put it. I am now trying to figure out a simpler 2 sided version which will be more practical for my application. I will make it wide enough for three tools, 2 types of sanders and planer on the other side.

    Again sorry about not being smart enough to see your replies. Pat

    the bookmatch clamps and planer sled are the same... I just thought they would make a simple sled and tried it.

    Hello I am new to this site and browsing through the posts I saw you were from my hometown of STC, IL!! Being homesick for Portillo's and a Colonial Kitchen sink, I hope you don't mind me saying "hey"! I now live in a rural city between St Louis and Springfield, MO with my husband and am trying to learn some ways to repurpose and repair furniture and interesting vintage finds.

    Hi there. I joined this forum because I saw that you have the same table saw as I do, and I really liked the modification you made to it. I'm a complete newb at word-working, but I really want to set my saw up to vacuum saw dust like you have. I wonder if you have the measurements, and material list you used to accomplish your setup? I could make some guesses by looking at what you've done, but again, the newb inside me says I should ask. That, and my guess work would likely result in something completely wrong. haha

    Just to clarify, I believe this is your thread:

    If not please disregard my message.

    Fabian, I would like to try to build a unit like your 3 sided cart. I was wondering if you could offer me some pointers on how you laid out your tools, figuring out the spacing so as to make things work out flush at the top when the tools are rotated. Also since you have been using it for awhile now, are there any changes you would incorporate if you build it again? Many thanks Pat

    Hi Fabian, yeah, I live on the northwest side, near the Portage Park and Old Irving Park neighborhoods. The little shop we have is a little further east in the Ravenswood neighborhood. I think I've only been out to St Charles for Craigslist. Do you work out that way too?

    LOL I have many Problems also. I am referring to the dust catcher on the Craftsman Table saw. I have the same saw and ordered a duct collector from Sears. It has a gap between the rubber to the tabletop of the saw, just like the picture you posted. Did you use anything to close the gap. I used the bag that came with the dust collector and it did not help much.I saw your post and thought you may have modified yours. Thank You in advance For any help you can give me.
