Need a fence for an old router table #925444. Does anyone know what model fence # would fit this table?
Not a clue, I don't use a fence. However, I do have a project coming up that will require a fence. So, I'll either use a strip of wood, or a chunk of 2X4.

It's pretty much impossible to find parts for old Sears routers so I would expect the same to be true for their tables. It wouldn't be hard to make something that works. Do you just plan on using the table to make edge profiles?

That table is very small. A chunk of wood is likely your best bet. Clamp it at the edges of the table, and chamfer the bottom front edge to give sawdust a way to escape. Clean it off after EVERY cut. If dust accumulates under the workpiece, your cuts won'tline up.

Why don't you just make your own table and fence. It's pretty easy to do and will give your workpieces a lot more support. Lots of stuff on here on how to do it, but a flat piece of ply will do it. You can put in a router plate or attach the router directly under the table. A fence can be a very straight 2x4, or you can get fancy. Here's a picture or two FYI. The table and fence in use is kind of fancy, with rounded over edges and a very simple split fence. The plate is a next step up and makes it easier to lift the router for bit changes for example. The fence drawng is if you want to make something first rate. Or find a commercial fence and build a table to fit the width and leave room for the clamps. Got some leftover wood and some MDF or very flat ply laying around? You'll be up and running in one to three hours, depending on how fancy you make it.

Support it with a couple of saw horses, or make a simple cabinet to help contain the sawdust.

Like the title states, made in USA, wow! Love those old time Sears Craftsman stuff. Sad what happened to Sears but hopefully Stanley Black and Decker who now owns Craftsman brings back made in USA.

Some years ago I took my trailer full of rubbish to the local dump and noticed on the ground covered in dirt was this little router table, I asked the guy in charge and he said $2.00! At this time I was about to start on some big projects so a second table would be helpful. The fence on it was pretty useless so I made the simple one shown.
The cover on the opening was a joke to cover the "mouse hole"
