So I recently bought a model 684 for $100, figuring I couldn’t get hurt. Anyway, it is missing a few parts and I have been trying to figure out how to make something work.
I have checked both the Belsaw website and Sears parts-direct for all of these parts to no avail.
First, and most important to me, the jointer fence is gone. Any ideas on where I could find one that would work? Or something I could fabricate into one?
Next, the on-off switch is gone. The previous owner said it broke. Before buying it, he showed me that the motor worked by jumping the wires that go to the switch and then plugging in the motor. It is a 1 hp motor.
Finally, the blade guard is missing. This would be something that would be nice for safety, though obviously the machine will work without it. I assume the previous owner took it off to be able to joint wider boards.
I’m pretty sure I’ll find more things later, but any help with these things would be greatly appreciated.
