All. I have this Rockwell 12” contractors table saw and it is 34 years old. I need parts for it and can not find the model # for it. I can find the motor # because it is right on the motor, but the saw model # is nowhere to be found. Any ideas?

Hmmm .. it should start wit ha 34 – xxx number somewhere on it. You can try over at vintagemachinery.org theyve got all kins oif great info over there. I cant imagine that there is a ton of 12” saw made by rockwell so it shouldnt be too hard to track down.

ah hah … its an odd ball for sure but i did find a parts breakdown … http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/cgi-bin/schematic.cgi/delta/34-388

http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/detail.aspx?id=3710

Looks like its a 34-388

I only found 2 that were for sale on the web. From what ive gathered they only made this saw for 2 years or so. Some unisaw parts will fit this saw.

Thanks all. I bought this saw new when I first came to the States in 1980. It is not fancy but it has kept on working and working. Now it needs parts. The handles to raise, and angle the blade.

I just inherited the same exact saw from my grandfather, and the motor bogs when cutting even plywood, anything I can do to fix this, inexpensively?

2 things come to mind. The motor is full of dust, blow it out. Or put a new blade on it. New blades can do wonders.
