Topic tags/keywords: question miter saw

Hi all,
I dumped my miter saw on the ground the other day cleaning out the garage and busted the plastic guard all to pieces.

Delta Tool Part 905890 is the part number for the guard, Delta 36-070 is the model of the saw I think but it seems this part is not made or available from what I can find on the interweb.

Anyone have any ideas on alternatives to getting the part that might make this saw safe again? I hate to just junk it because I can’t find a plastic part.

I would be surprised if other models were made by the same company and had interchangeable parts. Go to Lowe’s, HD, Ace, Woodcraft, Rockler, etc. and look at TS’s there. I’m guessing you could find a match.

Rweitz, Did you ever find a guard that fit? I’m in the same boat, only worse, I don’t have the original guard to compare. Like to fix this saw up for someone, don’t want to give it away with no guard.

I too need a blade guard for my 10” Delta Miter Saw (36-220). I got it at a church sale for $10. Monday I am going to call the church to see if they know the seller to see if they still have the plastic guard. I know it will be broken as part of it is attached to the saw. But I may be able to repair it or use it as a model to make a new guard. Any further Ideas on this?

Hello, WM
I milled about 1/4” off the spring side of the aluminum guard housing and used a guard from the newer saw. Used the spring assembly from the newer guard, drilled new holes in the tin spring cover plate to fit the old housing. Don’t remember which arm I used. Have about 8 hrs and $60.00 into the retrofit. Way better then just finding a newer model with a working guard on craigslist for $50.00.
(My suggestion, put a metal cutoff wheel in it and don’t waste any more time/ money on the beast).
Al
