  • 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!

          Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

          I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

          Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...

          Bruce said he felt like he needed to look for a job when he first retired. That lasted for about a month and he hasn’t looked back since. I had a friend whose company gave him a 50th party. At the party he told them he was retiring in 2 weeks! Trust us, you will love being retired.

          Hi ibber - LOL!

          I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.
