Topic tags/keywords: table saw missing piece part help tablesaw

Please help. See the image above. The threaded “cap” on the end of the shaft that turns to raise and lower my blade won’t spin with the shaft. I noticed this when I went to put the blade down so I opened the cabinet to inspect inside. I started by vacuuming up the sawdust and think it may have vacuumed up a part. There are two holes on either side of the threaded cap as though something is missing. If I am missing something can anyone identify what I’m missing. See the attached picture. Also, the link to the parts diagram is below but I can’t make out what it is I would be missing. It is a Craftsman, model number152221140. Thanks.

There should be a set screw or roll pin, probably the later, in that hole.
If it is a roll pin there has to be a matching hole through the shaft inside the screw threaded “cap”.

Thanks crank49. There isn’t a hole in the shaft and the holes in the threaded screw cap don’t appear to be threaded.

If the holes are not threaded the only way the cap could be tied to the shaft would be a pin.
It is possible the cap part has shifted along the length of the shaft so that now you can’t see the hole.
Something has to attach the screw threaded cap to the shaft somewhere.
And two holes in the cap strongly suggests it was something that passes through from one side to the other.

crank49 is correct. It’s part no. 244 on the diagram. Your shaft has probably shifted so the holes don’t line up. You may have to do some dis-assembly to get it lined up again.

Fish around the dust in your vac with a strong magnet, you might find the part.
