Hi,

I just bought a old Rockwell 34-410 table saw. At the end of the shaft to tilt the blade there is a stop block at the end of the auger threads that bolts to the front trunnion and appears to have a set screw to adjust the tilt shaft. The one on mine is broken. How important is the block?

Thanks,
Stan

I assume the set screw is whats broken, it should have a jam nut thats used to lock it in place, removing the jam nut will give you enough bite on the set screw to remove and replace. I never rely on the stop for 45 I used to use a 45 square, but now use a wixy angle finder, hope this helps.

Thanks Lee!

Is that the only purpose of the stop block, to stop the tilt at 45? mine is missing the bottom half, so the set screw and lock nut are missing. I was going to fabricate one, but I will just leave it off if that is its only purpose.
