I bought this Grizzly TSC-10 table saw used. I haven’t been able to find info on how to mount the motor and haven’t been able to figure it out. I’m confused on how that bracket attaches to the motor and wondering if there could be a piece missing?

Thank you

First post – first response.

I Googled Grizzly TSC-10 manual and got a link to the entire document.

Is your saw different than the ones described in that manual?

How do you get it to hang from the ceiling like that?

It’s likely an older Taiwanese saw made in the Mao Shan plant. It was offered in many configurations under many different brands….Jet, Grizzly, PM, Ohio Forge, Omega, AFF, Bridgewood, Woodtek, Allied, Mao Shan and many others. The motor mount system should be pretty much the same, regardless of the leg stand, fence, or wing configuration.

The contraption mounted to the top of the motor doesn’t look like it belongs there….someone added that.

That contraption on top of the motor looks like some sort of tensioner…..

Surely the tension would come from sliding the whole bracket further out on those studs then doing up the grub screws… Does it hold sturdy enough if you remove the black piece (+ 2 bolts). Doesn’t look like it belongs there

I agree. That black piece looks like someone tried to make a plate to push down on the motor, creating more tension.

Oh and that belt looks like it has turned backwards. Those “nubs” are usually on the inside
