Hello all!!! I’ve been viewing this site for awhile now, and figured you might be the guys to steer me in the right direction. I acquired a old super 900 radial arm saw, and would like to restore it, I see mark did a beautiful job on his. mine is quite complete, but the pivot bolt is broke, the bolt that allows the saw to turn sideways to be used like a table saw part # 130 on the parts diagram. I have the locknut and lever but the bolt was broken, I think the saw must of been dropped or fell over to break it. it looks like a specific bolt for the application it is used for.the treads are opposite of a normal bolt.(not sure if thats called a left hand or right hand thread) just wondering if anyone knows of a saw someone might have for parts or where I could get a new bolt. any help would be appreciated. thanks Randy

It’s a fine saw that you will use for many years, I use mine a lot & have only had to rewire the flex lines. Look up OWWM old wood working machines .com. There you can find manuals & resources for these old beauties. Mine was free and I got the dog with it free as well! It is still like new, the speckeled paint and all. I installed a new top from a damaged IKEA beech countertop about $20. I’ve used the 12” version of this saw for big framing jobs but nothing is as sweet as the Super 900! Remember it’s a Trunnion saw but ras to most folks will work. Keeping the table flat and truing up the 90 degree setting takes a bit of fuss but it’s truly a production saw. Check & replace all the wiring from the cord thru into the motor housing. Mine worked fine but when I was putting a new cord on it the wiring in the motor was almost bare wire, no insulation. I bought a 25’ quality 12/2 extension cord & in just an evening had it running like new. Get it going and you will love that saw!

If you have the old broken bolt, you could take it to your local machine shop and have them make you a new one. If not, take in the parts that are held together with the bolt and have them build you a replacement.

Hello all! Mark, you did a terrific job on your saw! I was given a similar (7 1/4”) saw a few years ago and did nothing with it. Now I want to start working on it, but do not have the user’s manual. I checked with OWWM with no luck. Can someone HELP??
