  • Jake HELP!!!!!! RAS Question

    Jake or anyone else for that matter,

    I need help with an old craftsman RAS that was manufactured by Emerson.

    I just bought a used craftsman RAS model # 113.23111. The problem that I have with it is that the person I puchased it from played gorilla trying to remove the blade. The problem is he did not realize that the shaft was reverse threaded. Well in his attempt to loosen (i.e tighten) the arbor nut he stripped part of the arbor. I can use a washer to install a regular blade, but I can not install a Dado on it because the dado will cover the section of the shaft where the threads are gone.

    Now to my question, I was able to determine the part number for the rotor assembly from Sears' web site but when I contacted me they informed me that the rotor assembly and the motor are both discontinued. The part number for the rotor assembly is 159313 and the part number for the motor is 63507. Is there any chance that Emerson would still have parts for this motor, or do you know of a possible source for them. The model # for the motor is on the label and I can get that if it would help.

    TIA, any help would be appreciated. I bought it for my dad for his birthday. I have about a month to get it all fixed up.

    Sorry guys, I've been out of contact for a couple days. Rob - let me see what I can do on that. Let me talk to some of our old Craftsman gurus and I'll get beck to you.

        RR,

        No luck yet. I'll keep looking though. When we parted ways with Sears, we transferred any and all Craftsman parts we had in stock to their parts service so I have no older Craftman part available to me.

          You may beable to have the threads re-cut by a machine shop. I don't know how bad or how much of the shaft is gone. I would not try to cut them yourself unless you have a hard die. My brother in law is a machinist (sp) and he claims that the shaft is a very hard steel ( I agree) that takes a harden die to thread ( I not sure I agree with this. Anyway good luck in your quest.

            I would definitly take it to a machine shop and see if they would be willing to cut the threads again. Most likely they would have to chuck the rotor assembly into a lathe since those are square top threads.
