So this is how I spent yesterday afternoon. This is my first, and only, table saw that I bought off Craigslist for $60. Some of the teeth had broken off the hand wheel and the gear plate. I called the company and ordered the parts; $4 in parts, $12 in shipping and handling.
So thinking this would only take a few minutes I started taking the front panel apart, only to find it is a plastic label sticker, and the hand wheel is held on by a cotter pin that is impossible to get to. So in frustration out came the sawzall and dremel.
So I finally get everything off, and put the new parts on. Instead of putting the cotter pin back on I used a key ring. That way when I have to replace the parts again I can easily take is off.
I am going to try and find someone who can fabricate this piece for me out of metal, or try and figure it out myself; seeing as the first turn of the handle, a tooth broke off.
Another thought I had was gutting the saw for parts, and building a cabinet around it.
