  • Old Craftsman Radail Saw

    Hi,
    I'm looking for a manual for a Craftsman Radial Saw model 113.29410 built in the 60's. I've tried owwm.com with no success. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

      OMG, thanks so much. On quick review it appears the same. I had linked from Bob Villa website to manual but the page link was bad. Need to practice my navigating skills. I'm visiting my brother in Fl and he brought one the other day, and has no experience with this type of saw. You probably saved his life, or possible a digit or two. I can't thank you enough!!

          Your saw might have been on a list for parts recall as mine did, I'll get back to you, I don't want to scare you, but it may be dangerous to operate your saw.The best I will be able to give you is my saw number, it was also built in the sixties, In the meantime do some research on radial saw recalls.

            Further information on the RAS recall can be found here: http://www.radialarmsawrecall.com/

            It should be noted that there is nothing wrong with your particular saw, from a design point of view (that's not to say that time, wear, and poor maintenance hasn't resulted in some danger though). The initial design and build quality was "state-of-the-art" for the time.

            If the saw is properly set-up, it is a fine tool. But, it takes understanding and care in use, just like any other cutting tool. Improper use, like leaving the saw turned on, leaving it forward of the fence, and just careless behaviour will surely get you cut, quite seriously.

            Because of this, all saws must be equipped with maximum safety shielding, even during operation. The RAS of that period was designed without a lower blade guard, and hence, the recall.

              The recall is for 1976 and newer models. I used to have a 75 and didn't qualify for the upgrade.

                just out of curiosity, does anyone know if a sears 10" RAS model 113.29402 is newer or older than the saw referenced at the beginning of this thread? I found it discarded and rehabbed it for $60. a new ridgid leg set and herc-u-lift and it works like a champ. great compliment to my ts2412 and 10" miter saw.
                there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

                  Best bet to date it might be www.owwm.com , browse through the RASs on their site and see if you find one like yours and not e the date. You might get lucky and find a manual there for download.
