I forgot to take a pic of my table saw but found the pic above online. I’m looking for the round handle on the side of the metal case that changes the angle of the blade or raises/lowers the blade (they are the same handle). The one on my table saw broke and I’m looking for a replacement. Ordering a new one from Craftsman is like $27. Figured I’d check here before spending so much money. I’m willing to pay for it, or swap something for it! Thanks a lot!

I replaced both my wheel cranks from the Sears Parts site. Got rid of the plastic one and now have metal ones. They were worth the cost to me, but I understand if you don;t want to put more $$$ into your saw.

I would 1. check E-bay or 2. use a vise grip and spin it.

Yeah, sure… swipe a pic that has a tweed guitar case in the background so I’ll NEVER know what is inside it. ;=)

Bullet – I’m using a vise grip right now – it sucks!! haha.

Ebay would probably be the cheapest route. Figured I’d just check here first!

Not wanting to spend money and being poor are two VERY different things. I actually have plenty of money. Do I want to put $27 into my old table saw for a handle…..no.

”....got ANYTHING orginal?” – I dont even know how that applies to anything about this forum topic.

I dont think I’ve ever said ”get a job and get off gummerment welfare.”

I’ve never once called myself a republican…

Mike, once again you prove not only your ignorance but your reputation as an internet bully and having an extremely immature personality. I’ve said it many times before—- THANK GOD you are no longer teaching our children!

Also before you use phrases like “I degress,” make sure you’ve actually PROGRESSED first. Which in this case you haven’t….at all

Wish you all the best buddy.

I’m with twobears. Make your own. ShopNotes has an article on making handles, one of which is exactly what your need. ;)

Doug;

Be careful or H. Mike will figure out a way to block you from your own post! He seems to think it is his place in life to swoop in and crap on any post he chooses. We are embarrassed he is from Texas.

Good luck in your search! I’ll check around with my WW friends to see if anyone might have an extra wheel for you.

It doesn’t have to be a wheel. It can be a bar. Get a piece of 3/4 inch bar stock and drill a hole in it to fit the shaft. Drill and tap into the side for the set screw. Drill a hole in the end and put on the handle. You have it finished with a piece of scrap bar stock from any machine shop or a welding shop. if you choose to make the wheel, use if am thinking it might not be as strong in the threaded area as the original….even if the original is plastic. Use the made wheel on the tilt shaft and the original on the blade height since it will be used more.
