Hi guys, this is actually my first post here, so allow me to introduce myself. Friends call me Moose, I’m a 26 year old Fireman up here in Montana. I love old machinery (from cars to table saws), and I really love restoring things to their original glory. This is my first saw restoration and I’m having a hard time finding replacement parts. Fortunately it has a working drive motor, both pulleys, blade plate, miter and fence. Overall it’s not bad for a $20 craigslist find (to be honest I’m pretty excited about it).
I really just need an original style switch and a new belt, it’s missing the pegs for the blade adjustment wheels as well. I’ve looked through owwm.com and have searched ebay and can’t find anything that will fit in the original cut out. Any other ideas? Or does anyone have a spare switch laying in their toolbox?
I’ll post before and after pictures when it’s done.
EDIT: Found something, not exactly what I needed, but someone else may find this useful
