bleeergh shaft on the lower wheel broke today. i’ve got tons of use out of it, a lot of resawing. but i think the blade tension was up too high.

anyways i need one of these (and probably the key as well)

of course craftsman is out of them.
local machine shop can make one, but it’s $72 an hour. saw was $250 used.

also, not even sure how to get out old broken shaft.

anyone have this part laying around?

First to get the part out, there should be a set screw holding it in, remove it then set the wheel over a hole and tap it out with a hammer and punch. If there is no set screw you will need a press to press the broken end out.

Now as for the rest. Find locally a Jed In The Shed machinist, a guy like most of us woodworkers who does machine work as a hobby or a small business and see if he will trade machine work for wood work. It’s an easy job to make a shaft like that with a key way. OR another thought see if you have a machinist class at your local college or BOCES and make a donation to their party fund for making you the part.
