"The Craftsman 130.26620 is not a Bosch 1617 clone. It was made by Bosch and branded for Sears. Any table that will fit the 1617 should fit the 26620!"
"If I recall, there is a difference in that the bases on the craftsman version have the craftsman screw hole rather than the bosch pattern. This could affect the useability in certain tables. The way around that would be to get the bosch fixed base from ebay, as other than the color and branding it is the identical machine."
Thanks Duane and Mike. I meant clone, as in, they are identical because the 26620 was made by Bosch and is the 1617 in Craftsman Red. I do know about the difference in the sub-base patterns which is why I'd like to find a used Craftsman table from the same time frame. Plus, I'd like a Craftsman for the sake of nostalgia. I'm not desperate for another table but it would be nice to have. Basically, if I could find one with a deal I couldn't refuse I would grab one but I can't afford some of these new table prices which is partly why I built my first table. The other reason being no one offers the dimensions I required (that I know of) for my projects. But in order to find a matching table, I need to know what to look for which is why I'm hoping someone here may have a collection of Craftsman catalogs that may be easily accessible or some model numbers from that year. I've searched Google for hours and have come up with nothing. I do have 2 owner's manuals but thank you for the link to the online manual. I already have that, too, as well as the Bosch 1617 manual which I must say has quite a bit of "word for word" text and identical illustrations with exceptions to specific Bosch accessories and Craftsman accessories. Unfortunately there is no reference to table compatibility in the Craftsman owner's manual.
So hopefully some one with a stash of catalogs will see this and say "hey I have that" and post it for me or maybe have a table from those year and have a picture they can post and/or possibly a model #.
