I would be hesitant to do anything but replace the arbor, or in the case of that saw the motor. Each of the times I have stripped an arbor on my unisaw (both from over tightening.. the first me, the second an employee) it was recommended to replace. Not re-tap. Now I am only relaying what my repair expert has recommended to me. And I like the advice of running it by a bosch repair tech. I would call a local cert. shop, the national guys are nice but they will be a lot more tempted to play CYA IMO. I have several of those saws, and replacing the motor is a couple hundred, which is less than what your neighbor would have spent on a new one, and should kindly repay you.. if not take send that neighbor a daily judge judy episode til they get the picture ;)
