Craftsman 12 Inch Band Saw Model 113 Guide Conversion Kit

Owners of the Craftsman 12-inch Band Saw Model 113 often inquire about the compatibility of our guide conversion kits with their machines. The good news is that our Craftsman 12-inch Band Saw Model 113 Guide Conversion Kit is designed to fit all model 113 band saws with a hex post and a tilt table.

Why the Tilt Table Feature Matters

The tilt table feature is crucial for the compatibility of the guide conversion kit. It allows the band saw to accommodate the new guides effectively, enhancing the precision and performance of the machine. This feature is essential for ensuring that the guide conversion kit fits securely and operates smoothly.

Hex Post Compatibility

An important aspect to consider when upgrading your Craftsman 12-inch Band Saw Model 113 is the type of guide post required. Our guide conversion kit is designed specifically for models with a hex post, rather than a round post. The hex post provides a more secure fit and greater stability compared to the round post, which can be prone to slippage and less precise adjustments. The hexagonal shape allows for better alignment and reduces the likelihood of the guides shifting during operation, ensuring consistent and accurate cuts. This distinction is crucial for achieving the best performance and compatibility with your band saw.

Enhanced Precision and Performance

Users who have installed the kit report significant improvements in their cutting capabilities, with smoother and more accurate cuts being a common outcome. This upgrade is particularly beneficial for those involved in detailed woodworking projects. The new guides help stabilize the blade, reducing vibration and improving overall cut quality.

Installation Process

For users looking to install the guide conversion kit, it is essential to follow the installation instructions carefully to ensure optimal performance. Here are the basic steps:

  1. Remove Existing Guides: Begin by carefully removing the existing guides from your band saw.
  2. Install New Guides: Place the new guides in position, making sure they fit securely.
  3. Adjust for Fit: You may need to make some adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.
  4. Test the Setup: Once installed, test the band saw to ensure everything is working correctly.
