I’m trying to find a few specific parts for my table saw restoration, and I’m coming up short despite my best detective work. It’s a Craftsman 113.27610, table saw.
Parts manual: http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/222/2832.pdf
Looking for anything at all I could use to replace the following:
I thought I might have luck getting parts from Craftsman directly. The person I spoke with on the phone said plainly that it’s too old and the replacement parts just aren’t made anymore. So I went to my local Fastenal store and showed them the original pieces and they said it was most likely proprietary to the saw, like one off special built. So in a real last ditch effort, I called Rigid and got a parts diagram for a TS3650, and can not identify similar parts on that saw.
Now, when I’m looking at the fibre washers… I’m thinking that their purpose was to keep saw dust from getting into the tilt/lift bracket. I’m somewhat inclined to just push forward without them and leave them off the saw. If I can’t find a replacement, I see little value in putting the original ones back on as they are completely shot.
The spindle arm retaining washer I have looks to have been concaved originally. It looks badly deformed. The best I could find was a belleville washer from Fastenal, but it appeared to be way too thick, as opposed to the thin metal of the original part.
Am I being too fussy about this? hahaha
