Hello All!

I was recently give a General Table saw by my father. I’m in need of the blade nut, but having trouble finding one. I think it’s 5/8-12, but not sure. I have contacted General, but they’re no longer in the business. They told me I needed to contact KMS. Called KMS and they can’t help.

I guess my questions are-

Does anyone know the size?

Is it reverse thread?

I greatly appreciate the help!

Most table saws have 5/8” arbors and similar threads, so I’m willing to bet a nut from another brand would work. It would be worth a try to buy one from Jet, Grizzly etc and see if it works.

If it’s a right tilt saw you need a left hand but.

I’d look for a Delta nut. The Asian saws just might be metric treaded instead of Imperial. There are some folks offering new, or for that matter, used Unisaw nuts on e-bay. Check them out. Jim
