I recently purchased an old Craftsman Radial Arm saw (model 113.29440) and decided to COMPLETELY tear it down and clean and lube everything – a major mistake!
Two Issues:
1) I removed the column cap that indicates the degrees from square the arm has been rotated. After removing the cap, I removed the two bolts inside the column which I assume are to pass through the inner column hole and thread into the arm. This (I believe) is how the inner column connects to the arm. I don’t know how to realign things to reinsert the bolts. I have raised and lowered and rotated the arm, but can’t see where the bolts thread into.
2) When I lifted the arm/column assembly from the base, a part fell to the floor (see photo). What is this and where does it go?
I have the parts breakdown, but it doesn't help.

Thats the fork that locks the arm. A PIA to get back in. Be sure it is not spread apart. If so bang it back with a hammer. If it is spread, the arm will not lock.
Good luck.
