I have dragged my Dad's old 113-299xx Craftsman Table Saw out of storeage to clean it up and make a few accessories for it.
Dad used this saw to create some amazing things and remodel our home in the 50s to 70s. He never made a crosscut sled, sacrificial fence or any jigs that I can remember.
I want to build these and a box joint jig, among others.
The TS fence for the Craftsman has 3 plane(not tapped) holes through it, I assume for attaching the sacrificial fence. What type of hardware should I use to safely secure said add on? I've been looking at various versions on the internet(don't yet have any books to reference). I've seen T-track devices and some 'L' shaped hooks that engage the sacrificial fence from the top. Is that the best way? The stock fence does not have provision for adding T-track.
Edit: Also, what wood is best to make the guide strips for the sleds from?
