I have a Ridgid RAS where I have broken off the elevating crank. With this saw being discontinued, they do not have that part available. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions I can get or use as a elevating crank for my RAS.
Welcome any ideas. Thank you

Since the part is obsolete and not available at places like ereplacementparts.com you could try fabricating one.
Get resourceful, look for crank handles which use the same shaft dimensions.

Unless you attach some sentimental value to your RAS, I’d get rid of it and replace. You can easily buy an old RAS off C-list for under $100 that is much better quality than your Rigid. You’ll experience improved performance even with an older Craftsman…I’d recommend looking for a Dewalt or Delta multiplex.
