Default Disaster has struck the vikingcraftsman's shop

The dog was chasing the cat into the shop and knocked over my table saw fence. Of course the small piece at the back of the fence broke , so the fence wont' grab the back rail. So now I have to think new fence, before other projects. Any one care to sugest what I should buy. I don't even see a replacement online for the craftsman fence.

I've been there.... I knocked a router over and broke the edge guide......

Depending on how old of a craftsman saw you have, you may be able to by a parts saw off of Craigslist cheaper than a spare fence.

Sears may sell just the part for the fence through partsdirect. If you post the model number of the saw I'll take a look for ya.

problem solved, the sears parts online asked to chat with me and found the part I needed. They tried to sell me other stuff, but I made a politcal statement so that end that. LOL They did a good job of getting me what I needed so I can't complain. Thank s for trying Doug.

You make me laugh Mike. You don't know the pecking order in this house. My daughter informed me on the way to pick up some house hold items that she was giving me to a neighbor as a Christmas gift. She said that way she could have a peaceful Christmas. The dog and cats come first.

Sorry , I tend to get peoples attention. Comes from my college speach class many years ago. I told a one of the beach cops in an email that his retirement was canceled. That bwas the heading, in the body I explained that the county measured how much sand went home in their shoes each day. And determind the amout over 10 years of working out on fire island. The county wanted the sand back. We had a good laugh after he knew he would not have to go back to work.
