Does it still work as is? Looks like you could get rid of some of the ragged edges and continue to use it until a suitable replacement can be found.

Best bet would be to post an WTB ad in the BOYD section over at OWWM. And if you have a serial number, you can date the saw.

Cheers,
Brad

Brad, It probably still works…. I did not get much of a chance to play with the saw, I began straight away tearing it down and have re-worked the 3 HP motor with new bearings from Accurate Bearing and was getting ready to replace the arbor bearings when I found the issue with the trunnion teeth being nearly gone.

I have posted on OWWM already and have made several other inquiries.

Hopefully someone has a second hand PM 66 that they are thinking of parting out and can help me out. Thanks for your reply.

Well, I have since determined that my center trunnion on my Powermatic 66 is “just fine”... It is made that way for some reason and the TEETH are A-OK.

Here is a photo of it all cleaned up.

But thanks for all the support. (I am learning about my saw one piece at a time)

Have your say...
