I inherited the saw from my dad about 15 years ago and only started getting into woodworking after I retired in 2006. I fell in love with woodworking and the saw means a lot to me. Recently the tilt clamp has stopped working 34-300 (Type 2) and I am 75% sure the tilt clamp (manual ref number 153 part 422-16-027-0002) is broken. Delta has not had the part for several years so I have a wtb listed on OWWM’s BOD but with no luck.
I have asked for advice on OWWM forum but so far I have not had a response.
I am looking for some advice on how to do the disassembly to get at the tilt clamp plus I wonder if anyone has come up with a way to repair it with an adhesive. I’d like to get some inputs before I start taking things apart and end up not being able to use my saw for several days/weeks? I currently have a c-clamp holding it at 90 deg but I either need to get it fixed or buy a new/used saw.
