First time on this site. I just purchased a 34-802 type 2 at auction for $175. I was aware going in that there was a problem with the blade raising mechanism. After some investigation I discovered that both the worm gear and the gears on the arbor casting are severely worn either due to lack of maintenance or misalignment. My questions are is the saw worth fixing I’m assuming it’s going to cost somewhere around $300-$400 in parts (there are some other parts I will need) and does anyone have any Idea where I might be able to find the parts for the blade raising mechanism at a reasonable cost?
Thanks

Tough call… spend ~$500 to wind up with an American made industry standard cabinet saw that will last you a lifetime, or spend ~$2000 or more for a new Asian import of lesser quality. I know which way I would go :)

Parts are available all over the place… those machines were made for decades and most are interchangeable between all the years with very little exception.

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks Brad I’m thinking the same thing. Hopefully I can find the parts I need.

Have your say...
