Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw tool

I’m buying an old Grizzly contractors table saw from CL for $50. It has a small bracket that is broken but all the rest has been well cared for. The broken part is on the bracket that gives support to the blade tilt mechanism.
Parts no longer available so I’m open to suggestions about how to fix / work around.

You may have to have that part duplicated at a machine shop, or some functional facsimile. Do you have all of the pieces?

I believe the seller has all the parts. It does look to me like that bracket’s function is to reinforce the rod. I am taking that to indicate the tilt mechanism should still function. Am I right in thinking this?

I guess that’s the tilt shaft wi the wheel off. I’m thinking that puece is what the lock nut pulls against to lock the wheel. So I would guess the tilt still works, but the lock doesn’t.

I’m guessing that is a G1022, and that bracket simply holds the end of the shaft. Seems like it would be pretty easy to make a replacement out of some 1/4” steel plate (or whatever size you have handy that is thick enough). You can use the holes in the cabinet along with the ones in whats left of the existing bracket to locate where they need to be drilled in the replacement bracket… just two smaller holes on top and bottom and one larger one in the middle to accept the tilt shaft with maybe a couple of suitable sized washers to compensate for the increased thickness in that area. If you have a welder, you could weld them in place, shape it up with an angle grinder and paint to make it look almost like it came that way from the factory :)

Cheers,
Brad

PS: I’d paint it black – much easier than trying to match the existing color and black goes with everything!

PSS: That broken bracket still might be salvagable… you might be able to re-position it back into the correct position and with a little bit of JB weld get it to hold. Hard to tell from just the picture though.

The G1022 was made by Mao Shan and is nearly identical to several other brands from the same factory during the same era…..Bridgewood, Ohio Forge, PM, Jet, AFF, Omega, Mao Shan, Woodtek, and many others. It shouldn’t be too hard to find one somewhere. I’d call Jet, Grizzly, Wilke Machinery, Woodtek, and even Mao Shan. Because of the sheet number of these saws, I wonder if someplace like Ereplacementparts.com might have something.

The grizzly parts site says the part is out of stock. The seller did tell me that he had asked grizzly about the part and they said it’s too old and not available from them.

Hello again. I ordered the part (P1022014) from the g1022 and it was the exact same part as mine. I just got around to getting it installed.

Ok I have been able to get the tilt handle fixed so it can lock. And I ordered a Pals Saw Alignment kit from In-line industries and installed that so I can trust (or adjust) the blade alignment.
