Ok, so I was on Craigslist and came across this cute little thing for FREE! Of course in had to go get it, and a 15” Atlas drill press($50). So apart from my garage being even more crowded and the wife annoyed I cant figure out how to mount the blade. Any of you guys know about this arbor?
Thanks

The blade is flush mount. It attaches to the
arbor with 3 screws with tapered heads.

I have the screws for it. Would there be an outer plate/flange? I haven’t seen any factory blades, just some 6 1/2” ones that came with it. Would the appropriate blades have an arbor hole, or just the mounting points for the screws?

The original style of blades have 7 holes in
them. There’s no flange plate and the blade
can be raised up high to square the end
of a part perhaps 3” thick. It can only cross-cut
to about 1.5” thick though.

They do have a hole in the middle, but it’s
probably just there for use on saw sharpening
machines. They also have 3 other holes
for carbide scrapers. The machines are used
for making polished cuts in lead used in print
blocks. For cutting wood you don’t need the
scrapers and they get in the way.

Ok, I found a blade for it…$110. Since I’ve got nothing but an hour of time invested in this and don’t know how much I’ll use it I’m going to try to stay cheap until I know I’ll use it. How about this, ive got a 6” thin kerf Oldham blade on the way. It has a 1/2” arbor that I will slowly drill out to 13/16”. I made a little jig for the 3 mounting points as well so I’ll just drill and counter sink those. If I keep everything on center and done slowly so nothing heats up and warps i think I’ll be fine. Can anyone think of something I’m missing?
Thanks for the help
