Here's my issue. I have a Craftsman TTS model 134... It has the expandable table (left and right), plus a pull out extension behind the blade guard. Wishing to purchase a after-market fence. I ask would these features go? Or, is this upgrade counter-indicated.

I went to sears for a model 134 to better under stand and to see your saw. It does not show any. Then went to Google maybe a older discontinued model could not find it there ?????

I'm not familiar with that model...any pics or a more specific model #? If it's a smaller benchtop model, an aftermarket fence may not be available for it, and likely wouldn't be a good investment for a saw of that type.

Sorry for the delay. Double-checked the numbers on the saw, and of course you were right. The corrected Model # is: 137.24883. As stated before, the table expands from both sides. This a contractors model. With it's own legs and wheels. !0" blade, purchased in 2005.

I suspect you'll have a tough time retrofitting an aftermarket fence to that saw unless you fit the fence to a saw station, because the saw itself is fairly small and has a lightweight aluminum top. For the sake of clarity, it's really a portable saw on a legstand, not a true contractor saw.
Is this the saw?:
Rousseau makes such a stand, but you can also build one:
Here's a traditional contractor saw:

IMHO, you might be better off selling the saw for what you can get, and buying a decent used contractor saw that already has a decent fence. It's not uncommon to find them in the $200 to $250 range, which isn't much more than the better values in aftermarket fence options. You'd have your fence upgrade, plus a heavier duty saw with a lot more operating space, torque, mass, and precision.
