On a radial arm saw part of the table is bolted to the mounting rails under the table. But, the fence and the back portion of the table are loose until clamped against the edge of the main portion of the table. Since posting my guide to the radial arm saw
, several have mentioned they recently acquired a Sears Craftsman radial arm saw vintage 1970s. The table clamp for holding the fence and the back table in place was pathetic on some of these saw. This Instructable will show how to make a very good table clamp very simply and very inexpensively. The photo gives you a good clue as to what I have in mind. This Instructable will be useful to anyone who needs a good replacement for missing, or poorly designed table clamps.
