Craftsman Rip Fences for Table Saws

Craftsman Table Saws with Fence

This Craftsman Rip Fences page douments many of the various types of rip fences that were provided with Sears Craftsman Table Saws over the years.

The saws of the 1950's and 60's used heavier fences made of aluminum and steel. They required aluminum fence rails that fastened to the front of the saw table and any extension wings that were attached.

Later fences were made of all steel construction first with handles that tightened a clamp against the fence rails.

The better fences used a cam locking device to secure the fence to the rails. Most recently, Craftsman has been making their fences out of lighter aluminum as can be seen in the photos below.
