Cracked this part of the upper adjuster. Can’t find one anywhere. Does anyone have an idea where I could locate one?

Welding or brazing would be an option.

I have the same saw (did a rebuild blog) and all these internals were quite substantial pieces of iron.

Is the crack visible in the photo? (I can’t see any issues)
Brazing is a go-to process for items like these, just use care to preserve the alignment of the slots.

As to a replacement, PM often has stocks of old parts, worth a call to check. Old woodworking machinery website is the place to locate used parts and knowledge.

EDIT:

Hah! just realized that photo is from my saw 8^)

No wonder I can’t see the crack. Have a photo of the broken part? Can give better assessment of what can be done with that info.

Have your say...
