So these are made of unobtanium. Apparently they no longer exist. Anyone know of a comparable replacement assembly that will work on the right tilt unisaw? I don’t have one on the saw I just got. Phooey.

You just need the arbor nut?

Sawcenter claims to have them. And I’m sure you could find several over at OWWM if you asked nicely :)

Cheers,

Awesome. I really need the washer too. I have the flange that rests against the arbor. I will look through that site. Thanks Brad. That website didn’t come up in my searches.

Not sure what you mean by you have the flange but need a washer? The only thing you need is the nut and a flange washer. The flange washers can be found pretty easily (like here). If you search for the part number you can usually find stuff that doesn’t pop up with a generic search. So a search for the nut (“902-01-200-9848”) and flange (“422-04-103-5001”) turn up quite a few sources.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: Did you ever date that machine via the serial number?

Thanks again. I am using some incorrect terminology. I need the flange washer. The rest of the arbor is intact.

I did date the machine. Made back in ‘74. I also got the motor up and running. VFDs are absolutely amazing. One thing that may be noteworthy though, the motor shudders a little bit at certain frequencies. It doesn’t really bother me though because I don’t see that I would ever need to run the motor as slow as when the shuddering occurs. From what I have read, some motor and VFD combinations are prone to that kind of behavior. I am not sure, but I think I can set some parameters that may alleviate that symptom.

If you are still looking for the 36-659, I have three of them, new in package.

Austinpeay,

If you still have any of those available, I’m interested. I have a Delta contractor’s saw that has an aftermarket nut and washer, but it’s too large to allow the installation of a dado blade.

You can make your own flange washer. It’s important to have the face that goes against the blade dished. A flat washer will distort the blade when you tighten the nut. The diameter of the washer must be equal to the arbor flange. Make the dish shape by using a small (4”—4.5”) angle grinder tilted so that the edge of the grinder disk is contacting only the center portion of the washer. As far as I can remember I made my own washer out of 3/16” mild steel plate. The dished out part doesn’t need to go very deep—just enough so it won’t distort the blade when the nut is tightened. I left about 1/4” or narrower perimeter not dished.

Although I eventually acquired a (used) official washer-flange, I still use the homemade one.
