Topic tags/keywords: rockwell delta tilt nut

my tilt mechanism is very stiff. I think I traced it to the white plastic tilt nut – its thread must be damaged on one end of the nut. Based on online manuals, the part number from Rockwell or Delta is 902-06-011-8569 or 902060118569 but in few parts shop that mention it – the part is discontinued. Where can I get this part?
Thanks in advance for replies.

I think you will find that that is a 5/16” USS thread nut. You can use a nut and tighten it with a wrench or you could epoxy a nut into a piece of wood to use as a knob. You can also make a hardwood knob and tap 5/16 threads into it.

Hi gorby; I don’t know what kind of “NUT” that oluf is talking about, but I have the exact same problem that you have, that is a worn out plastic part that is obsolete. Why Delta would have put a plastic part held on by a rubber “O” ring, in a construction grade table saw, I don’t know. Seeing that one can not get a replacement, I have come to a solution. The shaft that threads into the tilt nut is a 5/8” shaft with flat thread (like threads on a wood clamp, I think it is called “ACME” thread) @ 8 threads per inch. I found a wood clamp in my shop that I plan to sacrifice for the cause. I will cut out the female part of the clamp and get a short bolt, the size of the hole tilt frame, brazed on to it. The clamp I am using is a “Mastercraft-4” Canadian tire # 57-2640-0.
Cheap fix. The only fix. Hope is help you, or anyone else.

I had the same issue with my Delta contractors saw. The tilt nut is nylon and easily stripped. As for the jack screw, it has a left hand thread, 1/2” in diameter and 10 threads per inch. It was not an ACME thread however. None of the machinists I brought it to could identify it, no less have the taps needed to make a new tilt nut. One of them was able to make a new jack screw with a standard thread and a matching nut. He was even able to machine the end to accept the crank handle. It cost $100 to have it made.
