Topic tags/keywords: powermatic 66 66 table saw old saws tables tilt locking pin help pin locking refurbishing tablesaw finishing

Hey all. I’m a new member but I’ve been hiding in the shadows reading numerous forums over the last couple years. Anyways I finally had a need to join the community. I have a favor to ask of you. I recently invested in a powermatic 66 and couldn’t be happier with it. However, the powermatic that I bought is missing the tilt locking pins. While several OEM parts are available online, this part seems to be discontinued everywhere. I can’t even find pictures that accurately display the part. My saw is from 1977. Does anybody have a similar era Saw with the tilt a locking pin in place? The reason I ask is because I’m confident that I can fabricate the locking pins in my shop, but I need dimensions of the locking pin for that period. I know that the pin is 3/8 at the thread end with 16 coarse thread but I don’t know the length of the pin, where the threads start on the pin and where the tapered tip starts on the pin so I need measurement locations of those 3 things. If anybody could pull their pin and measure that for me I would be very appreciative. Thanks all!

Hi Ryan Welcome to LJs
I”m not much help in that I don’t have a PM66 anymore but loved it when I had mine. My suggestion is just to do a little trial and error and test different lengths of bolts since you have the size and thread type.

Hi Ryan #27 Part # 3582009 saw raising lock pin is the same part # as the tilt pin. If you have the raising pin just make a copy for the tilt pin. If not you can get the manual and parts list at this link, the parts picture might help.

Can’t find a date but it is an older model, and Powermatic only built a limited # of models so it should be close.

Have your say...
