Tsaw bearing seat repair - 2 replies

I replaced the bearings in my old craftsman Tsaw, threw it back together and now the blade has a bad wobble in it. Pulling it apart again I discover the old bearing had frozen at some point and spun in the seat, it’s part of the casting. I’ll first try to shim and locktite it.

shiny cast iron - 14 replies

I keep seeing nice shiny table saw and jointer tops on this site. Mine stay dark brown except when I get out the steel wool and shine them up.

Is there something you put on them so they stay shiny or is it just an application of lots of elbow grease?Thanks
