  • Craftsman Saw..

    I've seen some upgrade blade chucks for other saws, I'm wondering if there's one that would fit a Craftsman saw?
    I've tried everything but I just can't keep anything under a #5 blade in the chuck....or I brake them in half when I put tension to them..

    my 20 incher is pretty much useless when it comes to delicate work...

    there's a lady at work who is leaving us so I thought I would do one of those free humming bird patterns and give it to her as a going away present..

    I need a new saw!

      I have to confess...

      while checking out the site Carl posted about a retro fit chuck for my saw I had to get out the owners manul to see what model I had..
      while I was reading the instuctions (in very small print) I found out that the tension for the blade can be adjusted by rotating the tension lever...

      next time I won't wait 2 years to read the instructions..

      Thanks again Carl for the link to that site...it might of helped me out without buying anything...

        All I have to say about that Trout, is if you can do the job you are doing without adjusting the tension I can't wait to see what stuff you will be producing now!

          Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

          Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...

          I've bought lovely aspen and Balm of Gilead rounds from this site to use for live edge bowls. The owner, Rene Guay (pronounced "Rainey") could probably fabricate something...
