Topic tags/keywords: powermatic table saw part

I was wondering if someone here could help me out?
I am trying to help a friend find a part for his saw table saw
Its a Powermatic Model 63, 10” Artisan’s Saw made in 1988.

The part needed is the Height Bracket, part 113 on the Exploded view in the Owner’s manual, part number 6285238.

Powermatic can’t help so I thought I would try here.
Thanks

Best bet would post a WTB listing over at OWWM in the BOYD (Bring out your dead) section.

Oh OK, I did check there to see if someone has something or suggestion. The part is discontinued and powermatic cant even say what can be done except buy a new saw. If thats the case it would be a SawStop,LOL

Close.. but actually I was referring to the Old WoodWorking Machinery site (http://www.owwm.org). The Vintage Machinery site (http://vintagemachinery.org or http://owwm.com which will redirect you back to vintagemachinery.org) is considered their ‘mother ship’ but is otherwise unrelated AFAIK :) On OWWM, there is a section called BOYD, or Bring Out Your Dead.. sort of a buy/sell forum for the exchange of obsolete and hard to find parts for vintage woodworking (and metalworking) machines. Great source, and I’ve used it quite a bit myself to find parts that haven’t been made or stocked in decades. Great people over there and they will do their best to help you out.

Cheers,
Brad

I think your best bet is to get somebody to send
you a picture of the part and fabricate a replacement.

You have to consider that somebody would have to
be parting out a saw to have a part to sell you. For
a saw like that to be in such a sad state it was
being parted out it would have to have fallen off
a truck on the highway or similar catastrophe.

We thought about doing that as a last resort. The saw is in preteen other than the Height Bracket being bad so he can’t lower the blade. I will be looking at it soon to see what can be done.

Better be careful messing with “preteen” anythings. Try pristine and see if that doesn’t work better. Did you try Ereplacements.com. They usually have everything.
