Thanks for the insights. Screwed by the dime a dozen online MBAs sounds like. And here I thought I was upgrading from my Powermatic 63 (which Ive had for 25 years) and was good idea to buy newer generation table saw. its been so frustrating working on this saw, Ive a notion once I get the Unisaw running, sell it and go back to the contractor saw I have or get a Powermatic Cabinet Saw.

That Unisaw was a huge step up from your previous Powermatic. And IIRC, your arbor/arbor nut damage was a result of your own actions and should be easily rectified. Arbor nuts are everywhere – they have been the same since the late 30’s. Messed up threads can easily be repaired using a thread or needle file. Most other stuff can be easily found at your local hardware store, aftermarket supplier or even Amazon in many cases. Not sure what you did to require a ‘power switch’, but Delta didn’t make the one on your machine and is easily replaceable.

Have you tried contacting Delta directly? Proprietary parts for a machine that is still in production should be available. I don’t know what happened to their parts site, but it’s been broken for a while now – so a phone call will probably be needed or an e-mail at the very least. All other standard parts can be obtained from dozens of sources other than Delta.

Cheers,
Brad
