Hi guys,

A couple of weeks ago I bought an old (80’s) Rockwell Model 10 Contractor Saw (34-410). It was in decent condition and I paid $150 for it.
I cleaned and lubed the gears, polished the CI table and I’m ready to paint the stamped steel wings and the base.

I read that CI extension wings from the Unisaw (27×8 inches) fit this table saw and there are some for sale in CL. The original stamped steel ones are 27×10, so I would be losing 4 inches total on the table surface.
Has anyone here replaced the original wings on this saw? Any thoughts on whether it is worth the investment or not?

This table saw has the original jet-lock fence. I have read it is less than ideal, but I’m planning to upgrade it in the future. Any experiences on this area anyone can share? What would be a good candidate for this saw? Delta T2/T3? Any other one?

Thanks,
R. Rod.

I have had several of those saws and have had both the 8 and 10 inch wings (cast iron)

I think you would like the feel of the cast iron but won’t really make or break the use of the saw.

You got that for a song by the way

Giving your situation on that saw, i personally would not give up 4 inches of table width for the sake of having cast iron wings.

If you can find a deal on 10 inch…...thats another story,,,,,,,last time i bought a 10 inch ci wing it was around 80 bucks,,,,,,,,approx 20 yrs ago

grizzly 10” cast iron wings are available and fairly cheap. Shop their replacement parts.

i just picked one of these rockwell model 10 up to do some work at my parents home..i figured it will work better or, as well as, a jobsite saw at fraction of cost. mine came with no extension wings so probably make one if i decide to keep it after i finish, but it’d be nice to find one CI wing to add some weight. the saw feels very solid

I part out old saws and usually sell on eBay or locally. If you need any parts for the saw I’ve got the remnants of a half dozen or so. They’re solid older saws, but they are known to crack the front trunnion.

Have your say...
