Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw question refurbishing traditional

Hi guys, this is actually my first post here, so allow me to introduce myself. Friends call me Moose, I’m a 26 year old Fireman up here in Montana. I love old machinery (from cars to table saws), and I really love restoring things to their original glory. This is my first saw restoration and I’m having a hard time finding replacement parts. Fortunately it has a working drive motor, both pulleys, blade plate, miter and fence. Overall it’s not bad for a $20 craigslist find (to be honest I’m pretty excited about it).

I really just need an original style switch and a new belt, it’s missing the pegs for the blade adjustment wheels as well. I’ve looked through and have searched ebay and can’t find anything that will fit in the original cut out. Any other ideas? Or does anyone have a spare switch laying in their toolbox?

I’ll post before and after pictures when it’s done.

EDIT: Found something, not exactly what I needed, but someone else may find this useful

Without pictures it’s hard to advise on the switch, as these saws didn’t have switches on the saw itself. The switch, if original, was mounted on the motor and/or on the optional stand. These were just basic toggles. Many owners made custom switch set ups using almost any type of switch available.

These saws were sold with the motor separately, so different motor/pulley combinations were available. You could also use a non Craftsman motor. If the available Craftsman motors, mount or pulleys weren’t used, an original belt (43” x 1/2” v-belt) may not fit . Most people nowadays replace the belt with a link belt.

The hand wheels are difficult to find if you want the originals. The link you posted will have replacements, though not true to the originals in looks. For those you’ll have to search places like eBay and hope to come across them. Be prepared to pay dearly for them though if you find them.

Also try here for pictures, manuals, restoration ideas and help.
