Rick,

First off, if you don’t have the manual, here’s a link to it:
http://steelcitytoolworks.com/media/product-manuals/35951.pdf

I’ve got a Steel City 35605 10” 3HP saw. I like it pretty well. The one time I needed parts, I was able to order them from the Steel City Canada guys. They have a small stock of parts from the US importer’s operations, so give them a call or submit a parts request on line and see what they say. You can use the manual to get the part numbers.

My Steel City saw was also sold under Craftsman label as well. The blade guards may be interchangeable so you can do some looking around. A few of the parts are available on the standard spare parts web sites for the Craftsman version.

Leveling the sides is just a trial and error process. Loosen the bolts holding the extensions to the rails and then loose the bolts from the extension to the main table a little. Then just rubber mallet it (or hammer and block of wood) until you’re happy, then tighten. You want it level, but I wouldn’t get too obsessive about it.

Once you get everything level, then loosen the table mounting bolts to the cabinet following the instructions in the manual until you’re happy. Takes a bit of trial and error, but not difficult. You don’t absolutely need it, but a good dial gauge mounting on a runner in the miter slot helps out here if you’re sort of picky.

thanks I did as you suggested and it leveled out almost dead flat, thanks . I also printed the manual from your link the only problem is page 35 is not there. In the table of contents page 35 is the parts page. I’m almost there but I would like the parts list and I assume that is where the Canadian contact info is because I couldn’t find it in the manual thank you again and if you or anyone else has the parts page I would appreciate having it. The system to level the 3 part table with the treaded bushings work well al long as you take your time and sneak up on it

You can also check out the Craftsman 22116 as a potential match for the Steel City 3595x line. The pics are a little different, but the other specs seems sort of close.

Contact info for the canadian dealer:
https://www.steelcitymachines.ca/

My understanding is this is a division of the General Int’l group based in Canada. When I talked to them, they told me they have a stock of parts for older machines they got in the purchase when Steel City US closed. I was able to get a elevation worm gear for my trunnion but not the whole assembly. Common items like safety guards might be easier since they tend to be common among different machines.

Rick,

Glad I could help. I like my SC saw. I’m not holding it up as the perfect table saw, but it serves my purposes and I’ve made some nice stuff on it.

Rick How you liking the saw so far? I am picking one up tomorrow that I found on CL. Couple of things I noticed is the fence doesn’t “glide” as nice as I would prefer and didn’t dig into it too far yet. How does your fence slide? I am wondering if there are some plastic pieces under there that are wore out and need replacing.

Mind me asking what they charged? These are two items missing from my saw as well just not sure I would use them though to be honest.

Have your say...
